Ok World Travelers we cannot travel... And that Sucks.

So let us share a picture and take a trip virtually.
I am posting the first picture.
If you guess where it is you get to post the next picture.
Only one picture at a time.

So the first one is for all you sailors...
Make your guess and I will respond yeah or nay!
And if hints are need I will add when appropriate

What port are are these beautiful channel markers located?

Sleepychef is correct...

That did not take long at all.
I hope you have seen it or read about the entrance instead of using Google.

A very special day we crossed through that entrance.

Sleepychef your turn to post the next picture.
You have 24 hours to post

Thanks so much for joining in so quickly.

Totally understand sleepychef on the pics.
Carol probably knows exactly where it is, but Beerman did a great post on how to upload pictures.
We would love to see some pics of your adventures.

Ok travelers
The game is open! First person to post has the thread.
Remember one picture at a time
Anywhere in the World!
It must be your picture
And we usually wait 24 hours before giving hints.

Next?

TravelHat, is it the old hotel in Martha's Vineyard? Oh and I see Ron Silverman in the back there, off of the show, Parks and Recreation. Lol, but it looks a lot like him.

Your right Tom, it is on SXM, so I guess that counts! I really can’t believe folks didn’t get this sooner. It was taken sitting at BUGBYS looking out across Dawn Beach.

We have been to SXM 5 or 6 times since 1995, but to Dawn Beach only once.
That was in 2002
You are generous to give it to me...
Let me take a second to get the next one up

BTW - TravelHat that was my second choice - First choice was the guy on the far left

SXMFox--No, not Bugby's. I think the spelling was Busby's. Never a big fan of Dawn Beach, so that's why I didn't get it.

Well Carol one of the things I did photoshop out was the last line

ERECT. CI)I)CCLXXV

It looks like Roman Numerals but it is a style used by book printers when mass production first began

CI) = Roman Numeral M
I) = Roman Numeral D
The rest are the same

Hint #2

If you deciphered the number above you know the year.

The color of the edifice matters.
It is associated with family or should I say dynasty.
Today when you visit that country and see that color you know someone of importance lived there.
It is even the the color on the Brazilian Flag

JOSEPHO II. AVGVSTO ET MARIA THERESIA IMPERANTIB. ERECT. CI)I)CCLXXV, that’s what you photo shopped.

Schönbrunn Gloriette , Wien ,Austria

That was too easy Tom, but I’ll pass the torch along to someone else.

No, SXMFOX you did guess correct...

We just had a wonderful dinner with wine from Bandol, visited some friends for some BS time (social distancing of course) and wonderful Friday Evening. I am a little slow in response.

The yellow color is Schönbrunner Gelb or some may say it the yellow of the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy.
Which is also the same yellow of the Papal State and the yellow on the Brazil flag.

The Gloriette as you identified sits a top a hill overlooking Vienna (Wien)
The roof is flat and offers a great view of the city or over the forest in the other direction
The ladies, back in the day, waited their for the emperor and his party to return from hunting for lunch in the Gloriette.
Stunning views from the roof.

SXMFOX it is your call - but you deserve to post the next photo. If you do not by 1400 EST the board is open.

If you have not been to Vienna - Here is a view of the city and the Schönbrunner Palace from the roof of the Gloriette.

As my father would say... Those are adequate quarters!

It is written on the front of it.

There use to be a Current Events page 15 years ago on TTOL where we would a discuss things happening around us.
Carol had to shut it down because it got way too personal.

TravelHat - would love for you to post something that is not going to piss off half the membership and make the other half go yeee hah....

The Pineapple Fountain in Charleston would be much more along the lines of the game...
Plus it does not have the city name on the front of it.

You got any other pics?

I am guessing you have taken us to the British Isles?
Now the hard work begins. There must be 1000 Castles!

Are there any TTOL Brits or British travelers out there?

And then I could be totally wrong at it is a castle on the Rhine...
I just cannot see the flag well enough in the background

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...

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

Ok I had to do it....
I put in all the cities on the sign in Google Maps
then asked for directions

Then I realized it had to be between Certaldo and Baccaiano

Which low and behold that took me to: Montespertoli, Tuscany

Then using the little man I dropped him on the intersection that made sense and I found this sign.

Notice even the lines on the white sign at the bottom are the same which was in TravelHat's hint

I guess being a old USCG Navigator in a seaplane forced me to keep drawing lines until they all intersected...

Sorry Ellen you have not guessed correctly.

The Needles, Isle of Wight, UK. Sailed past them many times but never with the sea looking that calm!

On the previous photo, I came up with most of the places suggested with the help of Google but I rejected them all because of the Olympic rings on the road sign. I couldn't come up with any place with an association with the Olympics. Anyone know why this town has the Olympic symbol on a road sign?

I'll come up with a photo but I might be a bit limited as I'm not at home with my backups.

Jeannius,

Just to make it official... You are correct with the Needles joy

The Needles is where a young 23 year old Guglieimo Marconi set up the first radio transmission station in 1898.
His invention based on Hertz electromagnetic wave theory from a decade earlier, brought wireless communication into the 20th Century.

The yellow and red boat makes me think the picture was taken in Malta.
Maybe going to see the blue grotto up close?

That's a nice guess but not correct.

Hint... It is an island in the Atlantic.

St Helena was amazing. When we were there, 2011, there was no airport and no proper harbour. Those lines hanging down from the frame are what you had to grab hold of to get ashore in anything other than dead calm conditions!

Since then they've built what is often described as the world's most useless airport. Not planned properly and the most common approach direction suffers from severe wind shear regularly which results in flights being cancelled for days at a time.

I wasn't sure about that. I know Antibes has a wall like that but I suspect another 20 places in the Med probably have something similar. Now I've got to find another picture!

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.

EllenS you are CORRECT!

The stain glass in located in the Church of the Holy Spirit Heidelberg, Germany.
A beautiful place to visit at Christmas time.

It is known as the "Physics" window - Johannes Schreiter, the artist, added these 4 elements layered in red highlights:

1. The date the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima is inserted (August 6, 1945)

2. The equation developed by the German scientist (Alfred Einstein) that made the atom bomb possible.

And two scripture verses:
3. Peter 3:10 "the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up"

4. Isaiah 54:10 "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken"

The artist had been commissioned to replace all the windows that had been blown out by allied bombing, but the church leadership said it was too radical and re-competed the task.

Where to now?

Ellen,

You are up you guessed the city where the stain glass resides.
The picture is of the Church of the Holy Spirit Heidelberg, Germany where the window is installed.

I took at Christmas time when we were on Christmas Market River Cruise a few years ago.

So it is your turn to post a picture

Blue Buildings... I kept asking myself Blue Buildings I know I have seen them...
But when you zoom in on the uniforms were the clue!
Wow that is a longgggggggggggg way from Lake Norman grin

The DMZ crossing in Korea?

As reported on the news not soooo long ago, even thought it seems like a lifetime.
I guess simpler put - Pre-COVID.

Since we have BC (BCE) AD (CE) Do you think we may establish PC - Pre-COVID
Me I am looking forward to AC - After COVID

Wow, I thought that one would last a bit longer. Yes it was a mighy long airplane ride. We took our teenaged adopted son back to see Korea and we loved it. Have the say the DMZ was a bit scary. Lots of rules.

Pictures of the North Koreans looking at us looking at them. Me inside the blue buildings with the very intense military, the bridge of no return, and no trip is complete without looking for mine signs.

So cool that you would make that journey!
I think I would be fairly uncomfortable at the DMZ.
I cannot believe the border guard allowed you pose with him.

Thanks for sharing the extra photos and the background stories.

I want to say it is a shot of the flags that have controlled St Croix.
Definitely in the USVI

But it is missing one... The Knights of Malta were in controlled for a short period of time.

I have never been to St Croix for a visit. Landed there frequently in USCG Helo in the 70s.
My wife has been a couple times and has almost the exact same photo.

The thread has grown in length and for ease of management we are going to close this one and start a new thread.

Here is the link: Too Quiet!-Game Time- Part Two

All new entries and photos should be place there.
