Religion in Mostar: Different, Yet the Same

One thing that traveling, and the different blogs I read, teaches me every time, is how, despite everything, we are still the same. Same things drive us. Same thing scare us. Same things bring us joy. Through it all, the same emotions guide us through life, and no matter where we reside, it's those feelings that make us who we are. This is ture on a bigger scale, as well as in the confinements of one place, for example different religious objects in a town.

How do you feel about blogging and the world view you gain through it? Have a happy start into the new work week.

  1. those golden doors with the arches are so pretty. and I like the third photo of all the houses because they are stacked up and here we are flat and all the houses are flat, standing in one street we can not see anything but the street we live in. I like seeing other countries and other places here in the US because I will never see them with my eyes, but photos are a good second. I like seeing how others live and like you I have noticed that no matter what country I visit in blog land all the people are so much alike.... with the language barrier removed by translators we all say and see and feel the same.

    1. The language barrier is really lifted through the translators, but also the use of English language.

  3. Beautiful photos of the different buildings. Blogging teaches me about daily life in other countries, and gives me ideas about interesting places to visit. Thanks for sharing photos from your part of the world.

  6. It's so true, and blogging has helped me armchair-travel - it's amazing how much the economic crisis affects everyone, how the crazy weather does too, how everyone loves to gaze at beauty or something a little different. Thanks for the sweet reminder and images!

  8. I love blogging and seeing what people are seeing and photographing. And your photography is amazing! I'd be a lot happier though if Blogger would Publish my comment when I hit Publish.

  15. Tolle Fotos die du wieder gemacht hast. Also ich finde bloggen verbindet, man bekommt Eindrück von Orten an denen man noch nie gewesen ist, bekommt Erinnerungen bei denen man schon war und es können auch Freundschaften entstehen. Dazu kann man selbst noch seinem Hobby folgen, und ich freue mich immer wenn ich Menschen Teneriffa und meine Erlebnisse und Orte näherbringen kann.

    So wie ich mich freue bei dir soviel kennenzulernen und zu entdecken.

    Liebe Grüssle

  17. Fabulous photographs, as ever, Mersad. What do I like about blogging? It is a fine way to see other parts of the world through photographs like yours and learning about different customs. I also like the way bloggers communicate, and share, and support each other.

    1. The support is definitely a big plus point on blogger. Everyone seems to encourage others, which I like. Lots of positive energy.

  18. All of these photos are stunning, and I particularly like the photos of the homes. I find architecture in different countries fascinating. Blogging has opened a whole new world to me, encouraging me really to "see" the world in which I live and to enjoy the world of other bloggers who have taught me so much!

    1. Yes, through blogging you can really "see" the world. I agree.

  19. I especially like the third image, with the multiple arches. The composition is very interesting and beautiful.

    I do love seeing places on blogs that I'll probably never see in person. I also learn from other people's photography. And I meet friendly folks that I'd probably never know otherwise.

  22. I adore this little town, nestled among the plantlife clinging to the side of the hill! The different churches/mosques are beautiful. The architecture is all so charming. I imagine the people living here in harmony and that's a peaceful, lovely thought.
