Work where I wish to live and just if there is something to do... Jan 9, 2009

My view are northern patagonia's forested hills, our "garden" in the middle of unspoilt nature. If there is nothing to do - I have a trek or a kayaking tour enjoying life. To work wherever I want and just when work is coming in, else to do what I best like is why I decided to study translation and to work as a translator ....

River, horses, woods, mountains Jan 9, 2009

My view is of the River Dargle, beyond that a field with horses, beyond that the woods and beyond that again the Wicklow Mountains...the 'Garden of Ireland' as it is known.

Another building on the other side of a walkway... Jan 9, 2009

But Boulder, Colorado nestles up to the mountains, and the paries to the east are not far. Besides the usual squirrels and stray cats, it's not unusual to see a deer, a coyote or a fox stroll by.

Last spring a huge barn own nested in one of the buildings, and one of the owlets spend several hours just outside my window. The 80 mph winds lately have kept all living things away...

River Jan 9, 2009

The River Great Ouse in Cambridgeshire, UK with a "Chinese bridge" and weeping willows on the other side - shrouded in mist at the moment.

Not so nice Jan 9, 2009

A chimney (my own), the tops of two trees and a small patch of sky. My office is in the attic with a small roof window.

At least the view doesn't distract me

And the views from all the other windows in the house are gorgeous Brittany countryside.

My office is overlooking a garden.

My home from where I do freelance work is overlooking River Yamuna.

A park Jan 9, 2009

From my office on the third floor, I can clearly see a big park next to an important Avenue from my city (Cuenca/Ecuador)
Sometimes, the traffic noises are distracting.

Mountains everywhere! Jan 9, 2009

I was living in Tucson, a small, nice city in Arizona, but one day, I thought, "You've got a portable job. You can go anywhere!"

So, I moved to a tiny "town" (if you can even call it that) between Tucson and Nogales, and bought a house that cost a lot less than the one I had in Tucson. From my desk I can look out 2 windows and a sliding glass door, and everywhere, there are mountains. I love it. Not much to do, which is fine by me. A ramble through cow pastures or along the creek or river with my dogs is about all the amusement I need...

Mountains and farmland Jan 9, 2009

Up here in Ponte da Barca, Portugal, the view is always magnificent.

Today is slightly different: now I can no longer say we never get snow up here! We had a surprise gift of the white stuff this morning, which the locals say they haven't seen in years!

roofs and landing airplanes Jan 9, 2009

Just as Terry Richards my office is in the attic of a city building and my small window oversees the roofs of the neighbouring houses. Nice though. I also see probably a third of all the airplanes flying into Frankfurt...

Other Jan 9, 2009

My office is in the attic with 3 big roof windows, one looking out to the sky, the hills and the fort of the little historic town where I live. Another looks out on the sky and the hills on the other side of the river and the 3d looks out to the neighbouring roofs and the faithful columns of steam, steadily coming out of the cooling towers of our nuclear plants.

sky and tree-top Jan 9, 2009

My view is the sky (where I can count the planes) and a top of a chestnut tree which nicely blocks from the view the opposite house.
