Travel Challenge Round Up

Posted on: January 30, 2021

Over the course of 18 days I posted ten of my favourite travel photos and invited you to guess where the picture was taken and/or comment on it. I was amazed at how many of you were interested in my pictures. Thanks so much for the comments and guesses. Day 10 was a picture of the Drumheller hoodoos in Alberta, Canada. A number of you guessed it and some even remembered this location from my book, Amanda in Alberta: The Writing on the Stone.

I enjoyed this challenge as it gave me an opportunity to review my photos and remember fondly all the places I have been to over the years. Of course, there are many more and it was difficult to choose. I miss travel right now, but I´m grateful that I have seen as much of the world I have.

In case you missed some of the answers, here is a recap:

Day 1 Tofino, BC, Canada

Day 2 Casa Batllo, Barcelona, Spain

Day 3 Clifford´s Tower, York, England

Day 4 Entrance to the Grand Harbour, Valletta, Malta

Day 5 The flowers of Kuekenhof Gardens, Holland

Day 6 Taos Pueblo, New Mexico

Day 7 A sunflower field in Provence, France

Day 8 Pompeii, Italy

Day 9 The glockenspiel in Nuremberg, Germany

Day 10 The hoodoos at Drumheller, Alberta, Canada

Thank you Geoff Lepard for nominating me for this Travel Challenge and thanks all of you for playing along. Congratulations to Andrew Petcher, who guessed the location of every picture. Check out his interesting blog, Have Bag, Will Travel where he describes his many travels with wit and honesty. If I didn´t nominate you and you would like to do this, jump right in. It´s good fun and an opportunity to travel while staying at home!

Darlene, I have so enjoyed all your travel photo challenges. Although I got several right, you stumped me on a few. I particularly liked Casa Batllo because I fell in love with the place next door to it – the House of Chocolate. 🙂 Thanks for a great series. ~Terri

Thanks, Terri. It was a fun walk down holiday memory lane! The House of Chocolate is a cool building.

That was a fun worldwide tour Darlene. keeps us dreaming of tomorrow and grateful for the memories we have.

Exactly! It certainly made me grateful for the travels I have enjoyed over the years.
