My country is not as big as US or Australia so our architecture must be different. Looking at Americans blogs I am surprised how many abandoned houses and barns they have in the countryside, At my place there are some but not a lot. Why?
Firstly we are small country so each plot is priceless. And what's more 65 % people live in cities and towns but now more and more people prefer living in the countryside.
Secondly now in all countries which belong to European Union the plots are very expensive and what's more I can say Europe is very expensive comparing to US.
During our summer holidays we often visit different parts of Poland and Europe and it is difficult to find abandoned houses and farms. But last year I took some photos of the old abandoned houses in the countryside.
What about barns some of you take photos of American barns so I took last summer a photo of our barn in the North of Poland. In the barn farmers keep only machinery and equipment.
