la lune dans le ciel said...

Quelle jolie ville ! Tout a l'air si tranquille.Sweet wednesday...
(I posted my corner) :))

I'm always amused by this stark contrast between the presence of anything modern that has been incorporated into centuries old scenery. Berlin is a perfect example of this. Gorgeous architecture that is older than my country, with a McDonalds' or Subway right beside it. Funny thing is that I have a similar picture on my post.

outi said...

i like that! and it´s also environmental friendly, right?
and hey, i don´t see any winter jackets there;)
warm hugs though!

It's true that Vitoria is a beautiful city.
I love trolley : it's ecological and very nice.
When I lived in Nantes, i used trolley.
Bisous Jane

Kaylovesvintage said...

malo said...

I also love the contrast between new and old. Beautiful city and photos.

Victoria said...

I love its color, green! And you have wonderful weather (jealous, jealous) :)

Bonnie said...

Oh, I love those old (new?) trolley systems ! I had to laugh when you said you'd like to take this moment to welcome Vitoria to the 19th century. Funny !!

I'll put my thinking cap on and let you know soon my choice for theme !! There's so much I want to see, I'll have to choose carefully !! :)

isabelle said...

We are really thinking of going to Spain for the summer holiday, we will visit our family near Biarritz so it will be easy to cross the border ...

Crescent Moon said...

I don't think I've ever seen such shiny new public transportation. The buildings in the background are really beautiful!

Esti said...

That trolley looks pretty much like the trolly here...

(sorry, I've forgotten to take pictures of my car and my feet)

Cele said...

Kimmie said...

I can see why the gent on the trolley is gazing out the window - what a view! Vitoria is a beautiful city!

(I posted my Corner too)

trinsch said...

i wish there was anything close to that in the cities of israel. as i mentioned in my corner view: public transportation in israel sucks. bad.

jgy said...

Your photos are so crisp and clear,
I feel like I am really there.
Great to step inside worlds for another corner Wednesday. Happy travels.

Oh, Beautiful! it looks clean and modern! I also love the color. It seems like great transportation system over there!

Lisa said...

I'm on the next plane!!!! ;) I've never used it, but have seen Mr. Linky everywhere. The little ladies and I are really enjoying the many different corner views. Thanks for this Jane!

caitlin said...

You're too funny. Now I want to know if you were eating jelly beans on the trolley? You have me craving those now I'll have you know. :)

The Girl in the Yellow Shoes said...

Pfefferminza said...

Yes, would be nice if you include my link to corner view...love the idea!!! *britta*

caitlin said...

Hey Jane, I don't know if this has been suggested or not. But I have had quite a few emails from my friends who aren't participating in this, but are traveling around and enjoying the corner views who have requested everyone put where they're from in the post.

What if everyone put it at the top of each corner view post? So everyone can know where their corner is? Just a suggestion. Thanks!

MisterE said...

I love the combo of new and old. Very Nice!

pivoinerose said...

how nice it must be to travel with this beautiful trolley...

Cris Siqueira said...

Mary-Laure said...

Oh but I do love trams!

epe said...

Great pictures Jane! I posted my corner! :)

raining sheep said...

Mmm. I love the old buildings in Spain....certainly don't see anything like that here. I was in Spain last year for 10 days....was not the best trip because it poured rain incessantly and both the Babe and I got very sick. But we did love the architecture, the old churches, the fabulous old apartments.

ladybug-zen said...

Vitoria is so pretty. and congrats on the new trolley system. love that second photo.

24 rue L said...

Good morning Jane, I discover your blog by means of that of my sister (louettom), and i like your world. If it is not too much late I also try to send you my "mode of transportation " for the view corner-kick n°3. Good day and perhaps see you soon! Virginia.

A Captured Reflection said...

I have joined in too. What a great idea.

Le blÖg d'Ötli said...

Even this time, I'ld like to follow you and try this tram !! but I took another one ;)

C.T. said...

Wow, Jane, I'm impressed by the second picture (don't ask me why) - I absolutely love it!!!! Vitoria must be a beautiful city from what I can see on the background of picture with the verrrry modern trolley. Have a nice evening or day, XXX, C.

(Mum said hi, but I had a lot of explanation to do...pffff..-lol-)

habitual said...

It's good to know that Boston is *almost* up to speed with Vitoria!

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
