Stunningly beatiful blue lake
Follow the posts down to the lake. Do you know where you’re going?


The winner is David…who guessed, Lake Baikal in Russia!

Thanks again to Magda for a beautiful photo. Here’s what she had to say:

This photo was taken on the Olkhon Island on the Lake Baikal in Russia. Lake Baikal is world’s oldest and deepest lake as well as the largest source of fresh water on the planet. Olkhon is the largest island on the lake and for centuries the local people have believed it to be a spiritual place. Shamanism is a very strong cult on the island up to this day. Olkhon is not only mysterious but also a very beautiful place.

David gets the prize this week. So check out his great blog Ogijima that is all about the beautiful islands in Japan’s Inland Sea. Personally, I love this area of Japan.

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 Magda and her beautiful photography travel blog Destination World.

The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country, PLACE!) will win a link back to their blog and all the fame and glory associated! Congratulations to Dave who won last weeks contest by knowing the the old stone bridge in Mostar Bosnia and Herzegovina.

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.

    Wait? What? I won???
    I finally won for the picture that nobody could find and that I had to do a lot of research to find (while when I actually know the place somebody passed me by a few minutes).

    Cool… B-)

    Well let’s see…it’s somewhere where everyone has taken all their clothes off and hung them on the clothes pegs so handily provided and they’re all running around au naturale on a beach …
    Wouldn’t mind being there.
    Give us a clue?
