I took part in the travel challenge where you post one favorite travel picture each day for 10 days without explanation, then nominate someone else to participate. Ten pictures, 10 days, 10 nominations.  Today is Day 11 when the locations and winners are announced. I very much appreciate being nominated for this challenge by Wanderlustig.

As far as I’m concerned everyone who participated in this very difficult challenge is a winner! I wish clues were allowed. I know I would have appreciated help with identifying the locations of the photos posted on other blogs.

Day 1

Delta 747-400 flight deck at Seoul/Incheon (ICN).  Don’t worry.  I got kicked out before pushback.

Day 2

Temples at Kyoto, Japan.  Those who got it right are 100 Country TrekTom’s Tales Of Woeand wanderlustig.   Honorable mention to Perspective on Trauma and Wandering With The Williams Family

Day 3

Labuan Bajo, a fishing village on the island of Flores in Indonesia.  Indonesia’s Komodo National Park is  reached with a two-hour cruiseMonkey’s Tale nailed this one and Jason Likes to Travel got the country right.

Day – 4


A street in Kathmandu, Nepal just of Patan Durbar Square.  Roswil Tor Raekül and Monkey’s Tale nailed this one. 

Day 5

Hamad International Airport Doha, Qatar. The runways remind me of Meigs Field, a now decommissioned general aviation airport on an island in Lake Michigan next to Chicago, IL.  Airports that look like this are as close to landing on an aircraft carrier as a private pilot will get.

Day 6

Buda Castle overlooking the Danube in Budapest, Hungary.  AndysWorldJourneys, Blanca, wanderlustig, and Jasonlikestotravel all got this one right.

Day 7

This is the Gulf of Thailand near Bangkok. No beach for miles and miles and miles.

Day 8

My beautiful picture
Bolshoi Theater, Moscow, Russia. The answer from Wandering With The Williams Family was right on.

Day 9

Cape of Good Hope, South Africa. Rather unimpressive compared to its reputation and Cape Point, the towering promontory that was the vantage point for this photo. The Cape of Good Hope is the most southwestern point on the African continent not the most southern point.  It marks the point where ships travelling south down the west coast of Africa begin sailing more easterly than southerly.

Day 10

Yamdrok Lake, Tibet elevation 4,441m (14,570ft).  The Tibetan Mastiff and yak are visual clues.  Congrats to Monkey’s Tale for getting this one right.  Honorable mention goes to Borden’s Blather who remembered this photo but thought if was from Nepal.

Final Thoughts

Thanks to all who read or commented on these posts.  This challenge was tough.  If you haven’t done this challenge, feel free to take revenge by challenging me with 10 of your favorite travel photos.  Cheers!
