Anthony those are awesome pics, especially like the one with the chicken on the guys head.

Here is my only pic from Canada. I am guessing I was around 13. Of the 6 of us that went this was the first fish any of us caught.

How are we still in Jamaica. Paul posted he was in Jamaica and Canada. I went from Canada to the Netherlands and Anthony went from the Netherlands to Cuba. Frank were you in the Netherlands with me?

So if Jordan was part of Greece, how many countries were just Byzantine?

If I owe Ted an apology, it is offered.

Hey Frank......your "apology" is not accepted......simply because it was not necessary

Carry on !

And, take care, good buddy.

Who reads the titles to posts, not worthy of a title?

Not worthy Paul, without a picture of Jamaica, but they have been added, so I guess we're in Cuba, but your guess is as good as mine. Oy vey!!!

Thank you for sharing. Really like the demonstration of 3 color printing on the piece of cotton.

Are we stuck in Cuba?

El Duque got out.

I have seen Cuba from the deck of a cruise ship. Does that count?

If so, I would add Russia

Hi Frank....after 6 days, it's time to give this thread a friendly bump.

And. I would like to thank you for posting the picture of the Church of the Resurrection in St. Petersburg (Russia). It is a well-renown and historic Cathedral.

I meant to post these pictures in my post #33 here.

Aerial view of the Acropolis in Athens......



A scene from the Island of Rhodes. One of my favorite movies, The Guns of Navarone (circa 1961), was filmed on Rhodes. Shown here is the location
of the cliff-climbing scenes with Gregory Peck, Anthony Quinn, David Niven, etc. in this movie. The film won the Academy Award for Special Effects.
If you've seen this movie and have visited Rhodes, you'll appreciate why it won this Award.

I thought I took a lot of pictures in India, but looking through it, it seems like I didn't take that many. Here are some of the highlights:



This girl was one of the first beggars we saw; I took this one on the bus leaving the airport. She had just crawled out from underneath that sheet on the left when I took the picture.



I wanted to take a ride in one of those rickshaws...then I actually did. Riding in one of those will keep my cardiologist in business for a long time. They don't have shock absorbers or anything to protect you in a crash, and they sit lower than just about everything on the road. Riding through Delhi rush hour traffic in one of those was an experience.



The Taj Mahal, in Agra. We got there right as the sun was setting. As an engineer, it's incredible to think they built it without calculus.

Ted never said he had been to Jordan, so Santorini (Greece) was not added to the list.

This time he at least implied that he had been to the cathedral of the spilled blood, so Greece was added.

Many of you may not realize that Ted participated in the first marathon during the Peloponnesian Wars. I believe he came in second, which is understandable considering he carrying his camera.

Furthermore if I don't add Greece now, it will continue to pop up.



Note: Moderating this thread is not as easy as I make it look. A raise would be welcomed.

Note also: We are still in Greece as Scott's photos supplement country #2 INDIA. OY VEY!

This increase does not affect the pay you receive for moderating the Monster Number thread. Increases there have to be negotiated separately, and need Leon's approval.

Default Out of Greece and into Poland

I can get us out of the aforementioned Santorini, Greece (the photo is one I took on my wedding day of my wife) and move us into 24 different countries but let's go to Poland - specifically Gdansk.

This post reminds me of Johnny Cash

Feel free to sing along

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov4epAJRPMw

I was totin' my pack
Along the dusty Winnemucca road
When along came a semi
With a high and canvas covered load
"If you're going to Winnemucca, Mack
With me you can ride."
So I climbed into the cab
And then I settled down inside
He asked me if I'd seen a road
With so much dust and sand
And I said,
"Listen, Bud I've traveled
Every road in this here land."
I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
'Cross the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel, I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere.
Been to Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota,
Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota,
Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma,
Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma,
Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo,
Tocopilla, Barranquilla, and Padilla, I'm a killer.
I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
'Cross the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel, I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere.
Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana,
Washington, Houston, Kingston, Texarkana,
Monterey, Ferriday, Santa Fe, Tallapoosa
Glen Rock, Black Rock, Little Rock, Oskaloosa,
Tennessee, Hennessey, Chicopee, Spirit Lake,
Grand Lake, Devil's Lake, Crater Lake, for Pete's sake;
I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man

Only two rules exist

Visiting the prior country (currently Indonesia)

And pictures of your addition.


Am I upset with Enfuego? Hell no.

He's not the only rule breaker,

And sooner or later we are going to need Kyrgyzstan

Since I didn't include any Australia or Brazil pictures in my original post, here they are. Now, I think we're still on Indonesia.

The first two pictures are in Australia. The third is in Florianopolis, and the fourth is an abandoned palace (now home to squatters) in Rio.

Also, we should talk strategy. It's probably a mistake to save the obscure places for last. The probability that there's someone here who has been to both Turkmenistan and Kiribati is pretty low. The odds that some has been to Turkmenistan and Germany, and someone else has been to Germany and Kiribati, is much higher.

Some vacation pics that are not from the US.

EDIT: Per Franks request These pics are from Europe. Most I am sure are the Netherlands. I know the last pic was my ride and cabin during a stay in the Amsterdam Bos(forest). We used to get blasted beyond belief and ride the ICE trains all over Europe and get on and off whenever we decided. EuroRail passes are the best. I have 100's if not a few 1000 pictures I know are from Europe but no idea what country.

Have we collectively visited every country on the planet?

#1 MYANMAR
#2 INDIA
#3 UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
#4 AUSTRALIA
#5 BRAZIL
#6 URUGUAY
#7 ARGENTINA
#8 EGYPT
#9 AUSTRIA
#10 CAMBODIA
#11 BOSNIA
#12 CZECH REPUBLIC
#13 JORDAN
#14 GREECE
#15 ITALY
#16 ICELAND
#17 SPAIN
#18 MOROCCO
#19 JAMAICA

#21 NETHERLANDS
#22 CUBA
#23 RUSSIA
#24 GREECE
#25 POLAND
#26 FIJI
#27 INDONESIA
#28 ECUADOR
#29

The conehead in Egypt is incorrect. World travel is not a free for all.

Of the four complete pyramids shown, I believe Pete's head is the third from the left.

Still waiting for Indonesia, but it has been 7 days, so Anthony may add #28 if he chooses.

This thread did need more pics. Post them if you got them.

If I can find them I will post some Keukenhof pics where the flowers have so much color they seem to glow.

I've been to Israel twice, in 1970 and in 1975. I probably have pictures somewhere but I would have to take my closet apart to find them.

I've been to many others, but I'm not sure the rules allow me to post more than one.

You must be referring to the 7 day rule, but you are more than welcome to legally add a country tomorrow as Ecuador was introduced on the 14th.

Default Portugal to Tonga

Portugal is great. I hope you had a chance to visit Sintra. Next up, Net54 is off to Tonga. I had to leave Australia for a while for visa reasons, and thought about going to Fiji. Everyone I knew said that it's overrun with tourists. So my wife and I went to the next island group to the east.

Portugal first: a view of Lisbon, and some castles.
Then Tonga: a wonderful beach, the view from an 8-seat plane, a banyan tree, and a path down to the ocean.

Been to Tonga (Vava'u) and now on to Honduras:

These were all in Roatan, which is mostly a diving location.

I've been to Honduras, but found nothing there worthy of a picture on land, and I am not a diver.

I will add a few pictures from a new country

Hole in One.jpg

A Golfer's Urinal typical of this country's humor (?)

Berlin WaterClock.jpg

This is actually a three story high functioning water clock in the atrium of a shopping mall.

Checkpoint Charley.jpg

East meets West at Checkpoint Charlie many years ago.

Berlin Wall.jpg

Unless you preferred to jump the wall.

We are now in GERMANY

Frank, you're probably correct about Honduras, at least topside.
Visited Germany when I was a kid, so that leads us to Viet Nam.

I spent 18 months in Viet Nam. Let's move on to Japan.

There seems to be a lot of millennials on the board. Has anyone been to Millenia?
