stone fortress

A large, stone fortress at night! Storm the walls and guess your way in.


The winner is Aaron…who guessed Castillo de San Felipe – Cartagena, Colombia and actually read the instructions carefully :)

Thanks again to Jenny and her wonderful minimalist lifestyle/travel  blog.  Here’s what she had to say: “San Felipe is one of the greatest and strongest fortresses ever built by the Spaniards in their colonies. It took 200 years and 245 tons of gold to build and helped protect the city from pirates. Despite numerous attempts the fortress was never taken over. Built into the fort is a complex network of tunnels connecting various strategic points.

Aaron gets the prize this week. So wander on over to Gekko Gone Blogging and check out some of Aaron’s post.

Welcome to Travel Photo Contest Friday. If you’re a new friend, each week I post a beautiful picture (at least I think so) from my travels (or now a featured guest…see below for details) and you guess where it is. This week’s photo comes from Jenny and her travel photography and word smithing blog Where is Jenny. She’s on a mission to be a location independent minimalist, awesome!

The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country, City AND name of fort) will win a link back to their blog with the anchor text of their choice in this post (keep it clean and relevant).

Leave your guess and recent post in the comment section below. Last week Katrina nailed the colorful cathedral in Leon, Nicaragua first.

I will also stumble and review the latest post of anyone who leaves a comment even if the winner has already been picked (up until next Thursday). Jenny has agreed to join in on the stumble love as well! Yes, the prizes heavily favor the blogging and travel geeks amongst us. If you don’t have a website, then leave your favorite website or better yet a charity that deserves attention.

Good luck!

Guesses aside, all comments are welcome!

New Feature: Be a Guest Photographer

If you’re looking to help increase the visibility of your blog, drive more traffic, or just share your pretty pictures then why not be a guest photographer for Photo Contest Friday on Todd’s Wanderings! If you’re interested in having your photograph featured then send me an e-mail through my Todd’s Wanderings Contact Page with the Subject line: Photo Contest Friday. Don’t forget to tell me which site your coming from and I’ll be in touch and explain how to send the photo. Keep in mind that your photos should be awesome!

The photograph should be your own and should have a few small clues in the photo to help the reader out if they’ve never been there (no, I don’t follow this last rule myself all the time…but it’s my website). I’ll link to your page and talk you up as the guest poster. I can be very flattering when I want to be.

Oh, and it goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway. You should be an independent travel blogger. You big companies have more than enough SEO stored up to get you through the winter.
