The Astronomical Clock is my favourite of these. St Petersburg is the only one of these places I've been to.

I really love the Canadian Landscape photo. Thanks for the brief but interesting trip.

Kate Isis said...

I always thought the canadian lakes were just thing you saw in movies, digitally enhanced but they do exist. That place is just gorgeous.
It seems like you've been everywhere including to the one place I'd go with a free air ticket - Poland.
Its hard living so far away from, well, everything.

You have been travelling a lot. Interesting.

kml said...

Thanks for the globe-hopping tour - you have some great photos!

Andrea said...

These are some beautiful pictures. I cannot pick a favorite because they are all great pictures.

Hi Peter
I have really enjoyed your post. The pictres are great and they have given me itchy feet. Dumpy looks like a real character - we know a guy who looks just like him. He ran a popular pub in Cape St Francis for many years

Thanks for the trip around the world in the letter "P". Great photos and it makes me want to pack my bags and travel.

Neva said...

You are a world traveler, Peter, and I thank you for taking me along on this P-themed tour of the world.

My word Peter, that's a lot of 'P's - can't wait for your 'Q's ;)

Kudos to your adventurous spirit and your great 'eye' for the things you see.

I really love all the photos - haven't been any before, nor have never seen those in any movies.. Hope I'll get the chance to visit them. Sigh.. how I wish I could..

Peter M said...

Thank you for all your wonderful comments. Yes, I believe we are very lucky to have visited so many places, many of them not yet shown on here.

I/we just feel a need to get around as much of the world as possible within certain contsraints that may pose hazardous to health.

If you know of any other ABCer's let me know so I can comment on their blogs and hopefully increase my audience. Thanks

Peter M said...

Runestone thank you for your comment, is the blog yours or your wifes

runeStone said...

Well, actually, it's mine. I've yet to teach her how to blog.. She loves to write about her sunday school experiences with the little children.

Linda and her Surroundings said...

Such lovely photos. It must be easier to get to these far flung places when you live in the UK. The ones from Russia are almost fairytale in style. PeterHof Palace is just beautiful. So many places, so little time.

Peter M said...

From England it is much easier to access the majority of these beautiful places. It is true, so many places, so little time. When we traveled to Canada it took almost 11 hours so it balances out a little

Mike said...

I still fancy going to Poland on my motorbike. Maybe next year.

G'day Peter,

Nice shots - my favourites are Peyto Lake and the Paris shot.
