Benches around the world, from Curaçao and Scotland to Switzerland, Canada and Wales.
Not the most popular beach amongst tourists, who prefer the paid beaches at Jan Thiel close to the fancy resorts. But this free beach is still gorgeous! We had lunch on one of these benches – there are worse places for a picnic, right?
Loch Duich in Scotland
Eilean Donan is one of the most photographed castles of Scotland, but I think this photo wouldn’t be the same without the wooden bench in the front.
Quartier des Grottes, Switzerland
The main focus lies on the graffiti, but I reckon the bright orange bench adds an extra colourful dimension to it all! I noticed this site while walking to the so-called Smurf Village, a very peculiar district of Geneva.
Algonquin Park, Canada
Another lunch spot! It looks like a peaceful and quiet spot, but there’s a reason why this bench wasn’t taken already: it was windy as hell out there! Taken in Algonquin Park in Ontario.
Aberaeron in Wales
The colourful benches are part of the terrace of The Hive on the Quay, a cool ice cream bar in Aberaeron. Guess what ice cream flavor the bar is famous for – the name kind of gives it away: honey! It was de-li-cious 🙂
Lenzerheide in Switzerland
This bench comes with a real story… Around the idyllic Heid Lake in Lenzerheide, you’ll find dozens of benches just like this one, but they all have different names and message inscriptions. This one says ‘Theo Gerber’s Oasis’, so I imagine someone close dedicated this bench to him. The complete story behind the benches is one click away: ‚A bench with your name on it’.
