Hi, Dusky: It was almost impossible to choose favorites–these are so amazing. But I loved the Nubian village, Japanese lake with cherry blossoms, Italian grotto restaurant in the cave, Skagit Valley tulips–I have been there with Robyn!, Indian staircase, the stuppas in Bhutan, gorge in Oregon and the river in Vietnam between towering mountains…Just amazing. For some reason I didn’t see German skiers but I will go back. Thank you so much for sharing this beauty!
These were beautiful and fascinating. If only a little younger and wealthier would be a dream to travel to every site!
Here is your Italian Grotto Restaurant
