    #4 Greece. Too many strays, and a semi circle Greek theatre. Not Roman style
    #15 Venice. I recognize the flag and the facade. The floor was fixed after water damage.
    #16 Luxembourg. The bridge and the modern building.
    #17-18 Spain? In Euro, with the 1 written like German but people which do not look like Germans The words in Catalon? No. More like Spanish. So, it is not Barcelona. Correction, it is the Boqueria Market in Barcelona. The lamps look the same my photos.

    #1-3 Italia.

    all pics taken with iphone. they get onto icloud via wi-fi access, and i see them on my ipad in the comfort of a chair right away. with the new mac os (yosemite) and ios 8 coming up this year, i can see and manage them on all 3 devices (macbook, ipad, iphone) seamlessly and can talk and message from the macbook as though it behaves like the iphone. i can also use the ipad like an iphone. all devices will tether to the iphone and automatically turn it into a mobile hotspot if wi-fi is not available. i can also record a voice or video message on imessage. plus a lot of app friendly improvements. apple is da bestest!

    24 no idea

    25 -ionic columns... trees on left looks familiar. ancient olympia? But the hill on the right looks different. The style of ionic is more roman than greek.


    26 - in athens where the soldiers in skirts and goofy shoes perform hourly. Wait a minute, the words are greek, but it could be in Turkey as well. These greek text are not next to modern day marble wall. Cannot be at Constitution Square in athens. Cannot be on Leonidas monument in thermopylae.


    27 - one of the 4 most important centres of ancient greece - the boat leaves from mykonos. Only Delphi is more sacred than this island

    24. turtle bay, oahu.
    25. fertility eggs were associated with artemis. where was the temple of artemis, and why was the place such a popular pilgrimage for ancient mediterranean travelers? ephesus.
    26. that's greek, and the place is ephesus.
    27. you're close when you mentioned mykonos. delos is only a boat ride from mykonos.

    Of course, it has to be Ephesus! I failed my History in school, so I should be doing fine.

    I remember Artemis's tits. She is the Diana of the Greek world.

    People used to sit on this dwarf while waiting for the tour bus to arrive.

    Bergen can be a wet place to be. Ski in mountains (less atas and touristy than Alps) is bagus. Amazing small kids snowboard (1 piece). And midsummers night parties, with never setting sun upsetting your hormonal balances (0300 never gets dark).

    Guess norge blondes gave you a pass? Of 5 mill, surely at least 1 wantd to do an exotic ex-sinkie? In downtown Oslo, AkerBrygge is the place to be -with former docks masquerading now as restaurants/pubs
