    I’ve been to all but two of your picks and loved them too. Now, a question............why is my name under your picture of Quebec?

    Cawker City, Kansas. World's largest ball of twine. Tanning is plentiful in the summer.

    I took this picture myself, in Darjeeling, India, in 2013. It's Mt. Kangchenjunga, technically the 3rd highest mountain in the world, but ranked as the most difficult to summit. We were about 20 miles from Napal at the time I took the picture.

    Later that day, we went to the furtherest most point in Sikkim that you can get to, without actually doing any climbing. We were about 5 miles from the Chinese border. And I was served the best fried chicken that I've ever had in my life, and the home of a lady who was hosting our group. We were about 10K feet in altitude, and it was just amazing.

    I like to visit the Caribbean Islands, that's about as exotic as I get.

    And if it is on a golf course that is even better. Great Exuma, Bahamas.

    I've run the beaches of a number of these, this is Barbados.

    As far South as I've been is Costa Rica.

    I did make it to Europe too, but just a short stay with a quick trip to Paris.

    We stayed in London, and I ran the Thames every morning ... and hit the pubs every night .. I really liked London a lot more than I thought I would.

    OK, so, my name here is Wrighty, which has been with me since school, my name being Wright. And, honestly, my first name is Kevin.

    I went to Chinatown in Boston once. I bought dried shrimp and beans a yard long. Wild, wild stuff.

    If this isn't it, it is close. Unfortunately my brother completely forgot to think about the depth of field.

    For those of you not in the know, it is the Matterhorn and we rode a railway all the way to where we were.

    The place of legends.

    Used to travel a lot, alone, on business. In those boring evenings in the hotel I’d often look through the local ‘phone book (remember them?). Never found more than about four, ever, in the places I went, not just UK.

    I know Wright is a common surname but, to diverge a little, my Dad died when I was around 8. Recently trying to trace my family tree with little to go on, I got as far as a Herbert Wright in Cambridge. I couldn’t think of anything I’d ever heard that lead there. Strange coincidence.

    I'm not much of a traveller. I've been all over North America, from the far north and south to Galveston Bay, and east to west, but I've never been off this land mass. The rest of my family have seen the world. I guess I'm a failure in this respect as well. Just like everything else. Consequently, no photos.

    My boots have travelled some for work, from Poltava to Bucaramanga, from Bakersfield to Eagle; hard to say what is exotic - I'm sure everyone's picture of that is a little different. I've got pictures, somewhere...but not sure where. Since I'm not native to Texas however, there's plenty here that folks from across the pond or even here in the states would find exotic.

    Like a real honky-tonk. Although there's still plenty, a few of them are under pressure - like the Broken Spoke, in Austin (Alvin Crow Band with James White):
    Broken Spoke.jpg

    Plenty of wide open spaces:

    Temples? Uh, sure, here's an ancient cotton temple in Paducah:

    Ports, sure, here's the main mast of the tall ship Elissa - a ship I worked on for eight months as a weekend volunteer:

    the mainmast of Elissa on the occassion of Ruth's wedding.jpg

    confusing road signs? check:

    exotic flora? check:

    ...and always someplace to wet your whistle at the end of the day - here's a cold tall one at a little biker bar in San Leon:

    I need to add Chitzen Itza, the pyramid and the blue holes on the Yucatán Peninsula...that was BC (before child), in the late 1990’s...

    Xi'an China. Visited the 1st emperor's Underground Army of Terracotta figures. Met one of the farmers who discovered it. He was making a good living taking pictures and signing the booklet they sold.

    They also had a famous dumpling restaurant that made over a hundred varieties of dumplings. The importance of a banquet is based on how many different dumplings are ordered. I gave a seminar at a university there and they hosted my wife and I to a banquet. Didn't quite rate the maximum dumplings.

    Maximum Dumpling? Could be a group name.
    The Ugly Dumpling? Definitely!

    If you're a diver I highly recommend Palau. Also, it's one of the few places in the world where you can have bat or land crab soup.
