Grazie CC, Many of these were slides that I had digitized--some are 20 years old.

If you are not a photographer for a travel magazine, then you have missed your calling. Fantastic pics!!

Bob, great photos. Some bring back memories, the rest reinforce my desire to travel. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go buy a lottery ticket.

Thanks, Bob. What a treat to take a "tour" this morning.

I especially liked the "End of the World" and the "Glacier Express."

More????

Well, I am delighted that these images are enjoyed by others. The Greek chapel was taken from a boat as we entered Folegandos in 1997. It never ceases to surprise me which shots are the favorites--it really is a personal thing. Since you seem to like these, I will start a new post with my gallery named " Faces of Europe".

Who can guess where the "end of the world" shot was taken. Many regarded it as just that in the 14th century.

Looks like Etretat, France to me.

Beautiful shots Bob. My favorites are the portrait shots in the other thread though (I love those sorts of photos)

I'd have to guess, never having been there, that the end of the world would have been thought to be somewhere on the coast of Portugal? I can tell from the pic that it's not Ireland. That photo reminds me very much of the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia between Melbourne and Adelaide, except for the vegetation.

Thanks for sharing, bob. Really like the gondolier's hat. And lunch at Amalfi reminds me of many that I take of a reluctantly agreeing subject.

Clifton wins ! It is indeed the Cape St. Vincent at the SW corner of Portugal--the site where Prince Henry, my mentor, had his famous navigation school. There is a very nice Pousada closeby if you want to stay there.

Wonderful photos. Relieved to find they were not all taken on the same trip -- I thought at first you had been on the road for about 6 months..

I like the photo "Underwoods in Prague" because I think I can see our March 4-7, 2005 hotel room windows (!!)in the photo.

(Apostolic Residence's 2 floor "Attic Apartment" -- can't wait!)
