Try to make it fun by posting pictures from places that are distinguishable enough to recognize rather than having to blindly guess (ie. not a generic photo of a beach w/ palm trees that could be taken in 30 different countries) yet not too obvious, like a telephone booth from London.
seems like a good idea for a thread.
p.s.: guess mine
This should be pretty easy given how many people travel here
Not where you'd expect...
It's somewhere in Italy. The tobacconist sign on the outside tells me so.
Anyway guess where the sign is.
Congrats anon, you guessed straight away! It is indeed Plovdiv.
I will post another picture then:
Since it's slow anyway I'll post one to guess too
I'd say China then then then but no idea where precisely
>then then then
Absolutely no idea how it ended up like this
Another angle from my pic
Not enough cities in this thread for my taste. I'll post some easy shit
Looks like Florentin neighborhood in Tel Aviv kinda
This should be a piece of cake
It's pretty awesome I can't recommend it enough, pic related
Really wonder if anyone can pick this.
10 points if you can guess the country, 100 points if you can guess the lake/town.
i took this just some weeks back. had a great time in that region
The buildings look Italian to me. Also, there is some security railing, so there has to be some sort of political presence there, pointing towards Europe. So if it's not Italy, it might also be a country on the Adriatic. I'll say Montenegro?
Not Montenegro, it really is Italy.
Craco in southern Italy's Basilicata region to be precise, it got destroyed by an earthquake.
Pic shows some of the surrounding landscape.
Yay, happy to have guessed it right. Thanks for the info.
It is not Russia, though it was once occupied by Russia!
I'm not going to zoom in on the stones. The greenery and slightly dilapidated walkway made me think Asia, though I couldn't tell apart China from Korea on this one.
This one is very difficult. So a hint: tea.
this one is fairly easy
easier now?. Shot from the same location
Forgive its blurriness, it's from about 7 years ago and I was about 11.
Does not seem like anyone will guess it, so I'll just give you guys the answer,.
Just south of Cape Town: Taken from the hill above Fish Hoek. The bay is False Bay. The place you can see close is Fish Hoek, the place far away in the distance is the surfer hangout of Muizenberg.
Really a very lovely place. Y'all should go.
Also taken in 2015
And a final one from 2015. I'm done dumping for now.
It definitely is. Hell, I love Hungary as a whole and often just go there to hang out in the hot springs or such. I just wish the road connection from where I live to there was better. It's not a big distance but due to shitty roads it takes aeons compared to what it should.
yup close to Zdiar on the green lake hike.
imagine my surprise when I see a fucking danish flag up there
so I naturally did what any true swede would have done
COpenhagen right outside the central station with Istedgade running down to the right.
From a travelers point of view its the great area of Vesterbro. Lots of hotels, hookers, drug addicts and country potatoes trying to be hip in the terrible nightlife of Kodbyen
Seriously that's not a Danish flag
The Danish cross is off center, slightly to the left, the Savoie one is in the middle like in your pic and pic related
Lucky guess, but the very southwestern edge of of it yea. The mountains in the distance are France, the border is under the cloud layer. This is from atop the Black Forest's highest peak.
I'm from France and I wanted to say the Vosges mountains, in France pic related, because it looks exactly like this
Same shape, same trees... I wasn't wrong those places are close
Well, obviously somewhere in Russia that gets a lot of Chinese tourists. Siberia, out east anyway. Vladivostok? Blagoveshchensk? (I only know that second city because I boned a chick from there)
Eastern US yeah however I won't say now which place exactly in case someone can find it precisely
Thanks for the info btw. I'n not planning on going to the Balkans anytime soon but living in France it's pretty easy
That's one thing I remembered from randomly pouring encyclopaedias when I was young and the internet wasn't a thing yet.
And another easy one if you've been to this place before. I thought the interior was quite memorable.
Here's one I think will be a bit harder since I don't think many people have visited this place, much less know this specific site.
Iceland (big round-trip)
Cinque Terre / Tuscany
Norway (would probably take 3 or 4 weeks and travel south to north and back)
There are more, but these are all very likely to happen within 5 years. I know I said 3 earlier, but that's for Italy. Since Norway and Iceland will both be longer trips I'm less likely to take two in a year.
Among those I've only been to Tuscany and Corsica
About Tuscany it's a very good place really. Only thing I didn't like was that the people weren't really friendly, it may sounds surprising and I am only talking about people working in restaurants, shops etc but they were cold and barely answered when I said hello. The "regular" Italians I met were 100% alright tho
And Corsica is even on earth, from the white beaches with transparent water and high mountains there's a lot to do, on a map the island is little but once you're here it feels like a country on its own. Top tier food (especially the ham and likes) and climate too. I hope you enjoy hiking.
I recommend you memorize enough French for everyday tourist situation tho because English isn't our strongest suit
>And Corsica is even on earth
Anyway guess this one. Pretty easy I think.
Cool, thanks! The Mrs and I love hiking, yeah. And the mountains and the sea and the beaches and the good food. So Corsica does seem like a great fit for us. That's why it's on the list. ;-) And yeah, I've been to France before a couple of times. I know how important a little French is. It creates a bit of goodwill in the otherwise fairly cold (imo) French. It's good to know a few basic customs as well. :)
Not France either, but a related language is spoken in the country.
Pic is a city a few hours away.
Good start, do continue.
If you know your colonial history, the enclosed pic will help you a long way.
Are there any /p/ crossboarders here? Is your primary reason for wanting to travel due to your photography hobby? What gear do you typically bring along with you? What's your favorite country that you've visited?
I love to combine my travel and photography hobbies. It's not a primary reason, but definitely a happy combination.
I bring my Nikon D7200 with a fairly alround lens. Like an 18-105MM F3.5-5.6 VR.
I have no favorites. But I've visited Holland, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Portugal, England, Scotland, Canari islands (Spain), Alberta and British Colombia in Canada and Washington, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming in the US.
No, but here's another picture. It's on the other side of the world from Turkey.
I have a couple photos to add.
This one should be easy. You can probably even tell me the name of the town, not just the country.
This one might be a little tougher unless you've been there or recognize something.
Nope. Here is another from the same place. It is pretty well known for paragliding, but it was hazy due to fires during my trip.
Movie from 2015
