If it is engineering then, I would say it was one of the military academies
I have been to Annapolis many times and I can say it is not the Naval Academy
So how about West Point?

Here is another hint...
You will have to figure out the hint, but it will get you very close to the location once you do.

The inside of the church. As you can see it is very small inside. Looks big sitting on the hill, but it is not.

You are correct on both Beerman...

Now just go East to the next town from where you hung out on the Italian coast...

Beerman.... May want to post another pic.
The name of this one is Zion...
I am guessing you are in Zion Natl Park....

That does not count

And you are correct! Italy - Not Iceland - Food and Wine Better clapping

You are correct Ellen! From Zermatt it does have a bit more crook, but way up where we were hiking it took that angle away!

Tom--Yeah, I have had several medical issues in recent years, making travel where there is a lot of walking, pretty difficult. I would love to go to Europe when all this crap is over, but I kind of doubt it will happen.

Totally understand - I was not aware of medical issues.

Although one of the best ways is find a great street cafe and watch Europe go by.
I can sit for hours along a canal in Amsterdam, or even better rent a canal boat (VRBO) and sit on the roof.
Tapas in Andalucía at beach side bar staring at the Med and Gibraltar in the distance with a bottle of wine is hard to beat
and as you have seen in Beerman's and my pictures in the past... A balcony in the Cinque Terre will create a lifetime memory.

So many rush to the museums, Cathedrals, and tourist attractions that they miss Europe.

I remember when I first got on this board everyone always talked about "Sand Gravity" in SXM
You can do the same in Europe!

Ahh but at last... for now we have the "germ" and are not welcomed

Carol, have you been to Europe? You have enjoyed cruises before...they have some tempting ones even for this guy who has never been on one! It would have to be a relatively small one though!!!!
