Traveller

There are many topic in this forum about travelling - dream locations, future journeys etc. And because most of you have seen a lot of the world, and because I'm sure we would like to hear eachother's stories, I decided to post this one.

Here you can tell us about the most beautiful/inspiring/stunning places you've ever been. Kind of like a traveller's diary - a short story, maybe a picture or two, some advice... You can post a story now and then, and share your experiences.

I would personally enjoy reading about all the different places you have been to!

:D

In October 2008 my classmates and I went as exchange students to Mallorca for a week and we lived in a town called Felanitx. We made almost daily excursions and one day we climbed a nearby "mountain". There are paved roads and so but the mallorcans (?) took us through the woods instead. At the top you could see over the trees, other mountain tops, to the next town and much of the ocean as well, it was very beautiful and impressive! :D

At the top there was an old church, it was amazing to walk in the church and look at the paintings, ornaments and the coloured glass windows.

I don’t remember the name of the church or the mountain :oops: but I really recommend you to go there. (Bring a bottle of water; it was a quite warm and long climb.)

A few years ago an Internet friend of mine asked me to house/dog/cat/pony sit for her while she was away on a family holiday.

She lives on the island of Yell in the Shetland Islands. It was incredible there. HERE are some photos I took while I was there. :D

Here's a view from the front room window.

When in Spain you must watch out for crocodiles. I captured one with my bare hands :wink:

The Alhambra is really beautiful, but I advise to take a guided tour :P
Image

Nice views too :D

If my lottery numbers come up tonight I'll go to Port Issac and knock on doors until I can get someone to agree to let me have their house.

I just love the place.
