I thought you were psyching me out, with something too easy! duh

I have to say, not sure whether I can post a picture up next because most everything I have is St. Maarten/St. Martin. Will look for something tomorrow. All my pics from Europe are way pre-digital..

Somewhere I really love but I'll leave it for a few hours to see if anyone else comes up with the answer as I'm running short of suitable photos.

This archipelago's largest island is shaped like a butterfly, you can just see the butterfly in this pic sitting about 20 miles away.

Guadeloupe is a beautiful island(s)
It is in the shape of a butterfly, and they call them the blue and green Islands.
Technically it is two islands.

Some say the best food in the Caribbean.
We had some mighty fine meals when we were there.
Classic French, Indian, and Caribe all marry to a cuisine that is absolutely amazing.

We stayed on the blue side but hiked the green side extensively.

Would love to return.

Can't resist any longer... Isles des Saintes, just to the south of Guadeloupe. Terre-de-Haut to be more precise.

... ok I have to come clean - I am big fan of Death in Paradise filmed on island of Guadeloupe.
The story takes place on a fictional island off the coast of Guadeloupe.
If you have not seen it the first 5 or 6 seasons are on Netflix
PBS just finished season 9

No judging! smirk

Just to keep the game going, I certainly did not guess that (even with Google help!).

Who is this and where is this?

And you are correct!!

Very interesting story also from there is to google the tie to Smoke on the Water. When we went and my husband figured out we were in the same hotel as Deep Purple and then of course we went to Funky Claude's bar.

I think we should set the rule that Google is allowed after 18 hours after the original post time and no correct guesses have been received

So I say tomorrow at 1000 EST (1400 UTC) Google answers accepted.
Of course we are on the honor system
Is that fair?

That should give plenty of time for those who have seen it and not a chance to guess.
You know Travel Hat the night lurkers. grin
What the heck we will make up the rules as we go....
I just hope I get another one right - I got a great idea!

Hope you guys read the back story...
Pretty powerful!

Going from the E=mc2 I'm going to say Albert Einstein's birthplace. But I don't know where that is without google.

Jeannius,

Good Guess, but that is not the correct city. Einstein was born in the city Ulm, Germany.
Ulm is the home of the tallest church in Europe... or the world... I cannot remember, but I do remember walking to the top.
And I am scared to death of heights! But that is another story.
Attached a funny statue that is in the square close to his house and a brick marking his birthplace in Ulm.

Hint: The city where the stain glass resides is where US Army had their HQ following WWII (USAEUR).
About ten years ago they moved it from this historic German city.
