Eye Candy: 10 Amazing Houseboats From Around the World

Eye Candy: 10 Amazing Houseboats From Around the World

Recently we looked at some beautifully renovated Airstream trailers, so it seemed only logical that we check out a few houseboats too! It turns out houseboats can be found all over the world, and are particularly popular in the Netherlands, Canada, Great Britain and even the United States - there are almost 500 in Seattle alone. Check out my favorites below.
