Ancient Bridge over beautiful river

Do you know where this ancient and famous trading bridge lies?


The winner is David…who guessed, Old Bridge, Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Mostar was named after the “bridge keepers” who guarded the Stari Bridge (old bridge), which was rebuilt in 2004 after being destroyed in the conflict.

David hasn’t won in a while here but he is back and gets the prize this week. Dave doesn’t have a blog so while I wait for Dave’s choice of links I’m including an APPEAL to Help Japan: My Experience During the Japan Earthquake.


Welcome to the weekly Where in the World? Travel Photo Contest! We have a great list of travel photos and bloggers lined up to challenge your world travel knowledge each and every Friday.

If you’re new or never bothered to actually read what I write, each week I post a beautiful picture (at least I think so) either from a featured travel blog guest (see below for details on how to guest post) or from my own travels and you guess where it is. Due to the popularity of featuring other travel bloggers I plan to hots other peoples’ travels and photos for as long as there is interest (get in touch!).

This week’s photo comes from…ME…yes, I am stepping back into the contest scene.

The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country, Bridge AND City!) will win a link back to their blog and all the fame and glory associated! Congratulations to Rebecca who won last weeks contest by knowing the South Australian Outback like, well, the back of her hand.

Ff you have bothered to read all the way down here you deserve a hint: film set.

Leave your guess and recent post in the comment section below (comment luv should take care of the second part).

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!

Let’s invite as many people as possible! Please consider tweeting or sharing on Facebook

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! This is no longer as new feature as we have had 5 weeks of guest posters and have the next 3 weeks filled already!

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 photo 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. I love helping the little guy…or gal.

    Dang! I don’t wake up early enough for your photo contests.
    It’s the Mostar bridge, but three people beat me to it.

    So as a revenge, I’ll bore you with details of my personal life (as well as some preaching). I went to this bridge when I was seven years old. Unforgettable memories. A dozen years later, I saw this bridge being destroyed by the Bosnian war (the one today is a new one that looks like the original one) almost live of TV (as well as the bombing of Dubrovnik).
    It was the first (and so far only, keeping fingers crossed) that a war took place in an area where I had been before, the day I saw war destroying priceless historical things. This is the day the concept of “war” became real to me and I understood its real meaning.
    Sadly, I wish more people had had a similar experience, there would be less warmongers among Westerners (who don’t mind wars, because they always happen in faraway more or less unknown countries… until they don’t anymore).
