Home is the starting point of our dreams, aspirations, aims, and memories. As an avid traveler, I love to see how people live in different regions of the world. From looking at home, I understand life of that particular region, as the construction of homes depends mainly on the particular geography of that region. During my travel, apart from capturing monuments and famous places, I love to take pictures of different styles of home. So take a virtual tour and see many styles of homes around the world.
Home is where our story begins…………
