  • Replied in Austrian Alps
    My holiday in the Austrian Alps is coming to an end soon. Simply stunning scenery in every direction. Not to mention good food and wine. Landing now but where? Look at the endless peaks. The ...
  • I don't go near religious buildings but I did enjoy my stay at a temple in Koyasan. This way I could try the temple's vegetarian meals, which I found quite interesting. I like how quiet and calm ...
  • In the Estonian capital. Medieval towers (with dynamic tone effect).
  • Replied in Korean
    I didn't know Korea also celebrates lunar new year. Have been making Korean new year food as a challenge to myself. The veal ribs were dinner today. A platter of stuff... Based on this meal Gujeolpan ...
  • Replied in Oink oink
    KING of hams! Bar none. And 1 of the reasons I like Spain. Jamon specialist at the market. At the restaurant now. (More food photos from this trip in a compilation)
  • Just like the postcard, almost. A typical path on which locals (and tourists) like to go for a stroll in the evening. The paseo comes to life in the evening.
  • Replied in Cheese
    Thanks for providing more details. I'm especially glad you mentioned a possibility to fly to Oviedo. I've bookmarked this post for future trip planning. My travels for this entire year has been ...
  • Food and beer photography is a favourite hobby of mine. In fact, my Flickr stream has mostly food and beer photos. This was my first trip to China which was started in Chengdu. Fuji S5500, year 2006. ...
  • Replied in Chile (F31)
    Went walkabout in the park Torres del Paine in Chilean Patagonia. Too bad it was very cloudy but I was glad the peaks were quite clearly visible. The guide said all glaciers had been receding and ...
  • Replied in Cheese
    Say no more. Sold! My (little) problem is usually logistics as I don't drive. I have not looked it up how to get there by public transport. Could you tell more about getting there? I have Yokohama ...
  • It's terrifying as I don't do any snow sports. I did consider Chamonix to try out paragliding but decided Tirol (Austria) would be the place for me. Love watching winter sports and am enjoying the ...
  • Replied in Just chilling
    The monkey park a short train ride from Nagano. A nice walk through the woods first. I was there in early October so no snow yet. She's resting now. The monkeys are so used to tourists but they are ...
  • Replied in Cheese
    Were you able to obtain the cheese? And how was it? I'm glad you mention cheese. No other food has my affection so completely! All my travels are planned around food, beer/wine, animals and nature. ...
  • Is the stained cloth on display? Thanks. It's a new word, to me. I have read more about the sudarium of Oviedo: https://www.shroud.com/guscin.htm I have recently learnt a new religious term whilst ...
  • A baby alpaca crosses the road in front of our van. Everyone gets excited. Many enduring images of Peru (and Bolivia) often have alpacas, vicuñas, guanacos or llamas in them. You would think "it's ...
  • I thought the baby alpaca has lost its mother and wandered round aimlessly in the photo posted. Found another photo with a grown alpaca a bit farther up the road and although they were separated I ...
  • I start learning about a country already in the planning stages. And I have been learning in this thread. Thanks for the history lessons and the photos!
  • I know about the moon yesterday. I meant it was not visible at my location. From NASA site: illustration
  • Baby alpana has wanders round without its mum. On the way to Chivay from Arequipa. My first Fuji camera the S304.
  • Nice perspective and i like the mist, too. Photos on the web are mostly from the front of the church. Not many people have found this pot like in your photo.
