Where in the World? Extreme Child Line Discipline

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 blogger 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 host other peoples’ travels and photos for as long as there is interest (get in touch!). This week’s photo comes from Kyle and his great around the world blog The Inquisitive Travelers. The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country, Region, and nearest Large City) will win a link back to their Read full article…

Child`s Mystery: Travel Photo Contest Friday 32

Update: The winner is Katrina…who guessed Naples, was wrong, but was the closest of anyone The picture was taken in  Florence, Italy! Thanks again to Travis for this challenging end to year.  Here is what makes this wall so special to Travis: “Florence was one of my favorite cities when I went backpacking through Europe in 1999.  The vibe of the city, the sites, the gelato and the food were all amazing.  It’s also where I had the best meal I’ve ever eaten, and I remember it quite vividly.  I was traveling with a friend and we went to a specific restaurant based on recommendations from other travelers and our guide book (remember “Let’s Go: Europe” ??).  Anyhow, every table was family-style seating, which meant our party of two would share our table with six others.  We ended up sitting next to a pair of young Italian girls our age Read full article…

Amazing Waterfalls of Krka National Park, Croatia

Rivers and waterfalls are not the first images to come to mind when Croatia is discussed. Most people dream of exploring the ancient Venetian cities, dramatic islands and Roman ruins of the Dalmatian Coast. But located just a few hours drive from Split, near the amazing but underrated old city of Sibenikk, is a true natural wonder, Krka National Park. Take a break from century old monuments to explore the thousand year old monuments of nature. The Kraka river flows through a limestone gorge and at points spreads throughout an expansive forest. The area is made up of karst environments, which form when carbon dioxide dissolves with water on carbonate rock (limestone). Over a period of thousands of years this ongoing process has created unique geomorphological features on the surface of the rocks through which the Krka river flows. What? Basically, its a biochemical process that is constantly evolving and Read full article…

Wild Side of Travel: animal photo tribute

Interesting characters are usually the center piece of my travels. They help make a place memorable either by their actions, personalities and generosity.  However, there is another group of actors that deserves attention, our fury and feathered friends in the animal world. They participate in festivals, live monastic lives in temples, sneak into our rooms at night, and play hide and seek while we tramp through their neighborhoods in 4-wheel drive vehicles. They have made many of my trips extraordinary and unforgettable. Here are a few faces and characters that have stayed with me long after my flight home touched down. Peacocks can’t fly well but they can at least get to the top of houses. In southern Sri Lanka this is a common sight…everyone likes a view after all. It can get really hot in Sri Lanka and everyone likes to cool down. Notice the chains around the neck. Read full article…
