I've always been fascinated with volcanoes so anywhere with active volcanic activity. Iceland, yellowstone park, Hawaii, etc.

Never wanted to cruise till I saw a travelogue on a cruise through the Panama Canal with side trips to see the wildlife and explore some of the smaller Caribbean islands.

Anybody else who read the November 2009 Nat Geo Magazine will share my love of the landscape, flora and fauna of the elusive island.

Image

and this waterfall near Voss, Norway which has also doubles as Rivendell at times with a bit of tarting up in photoshop... :P

Image

and from inside my own mind -

Lothlorien and the Anduin Rift :lol: :wink:

That's why we took a polypin of Abbot with us when we stayed in a chalet in Voss (this was back in the mid 80's and prices were sky high). Previous year we had to trade a half bottle of duty-free malt for 4 trout 'cos we hadn't been able to shop on the way south from Alesund over the mountains - even the fish cost a flamin' fortune :roll:
