Colorful Catherdral

Pray that you'll be able to answer correctly where this beautiful cathedral is.


The winner is Katrina…it must be the good Karma from nominating 2 charities ;)

Thanks again to Jasmine and her wonderful picture and awesome blog. This has been one of most commented contests yet! Here’s what she had to say “The answer is Leon, Nicaragua, home to the largest cathedral in Latin America, historical and art museums, Sandinista revolution stronghold, and a sweltering hot climate.” I do love a good revolutionary stonghold!

Katrina get a bit prize this week. Not only a link to her wonderful blog Tour Absurd, BUT also links to her more than worthy charities:

Children of Ethiopia Education Fund
Amani Children’s Home

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 Jasmine and her fun travel blog Jasmine Wanders. No, I didn’t just pick Jasmine’s site because her Blog Name is similar to mine. Give me a little more credit. Check her out, it’s worth it!

The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country and City…smiley faces for partial answers) 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.

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). Hopefully, we can convince Jasmine 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 to help the reader out (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.

    I don’t have any idea about the photo. I am a traveler but I am only limited to theme parks. You know, if you are a mother what is important is what the kids wants to see. Anyway, I like your guessing idea… as I can see from all the responses here it is very effective in organizing thoughts from different individuals.

    Oh well, the answer has already been put forth (one commenter above), but I’ll put my first (wrong) guess anyways – Manila, Philippines.

  8. the scary thing is that I am absolutely sure I know this church, because I took pictures there. There is a separate church on the left and one of the right that you can go into. It is in a pretty good sized town. I remember some other sights a bit that I saw in this town….. and I have no earthly recollection of where it is. LOL. Too much travel.

  9. Oh man, I think I’m too late so I’m going with Nicaragua and a shout out to Bread Pig:, which I just learned about<<their mission of bringing less suck to the world is awesome and I love their offbeat attitudes :)

  10. Leon, Nicaragua: Iglesia de La Recoleción

  11. Very South America. Hmm… how about I guess Managua, just to take part.

    Ok, great rules for my side of the world :) It’s definitely Nicaragua, and I think Granada.

    Feel like I’m time-zone cheating, so I’m not going to answer with details but I think that it is here
