Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hi Arnd,

You have been too long away from the BVIs! You will remember that because of the lack of planning control houses are all over the hills in Tortola:



So its not Roadtown Tortola. Sorry But the hills certainly look similar.

I'm thinking Greek islands, but the red tile roofs look more like Italy or France. Every 6 hours we get a new photo; can't wait.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hi Folks


Time for a clue.



So far we have had, incorrectly:
Roadtown, Tortola, BVI's

Clues so far: None!


Rules of this one:
Don't look at my website (even though these photos are not on it)
Hints and more photos every 6 hours.
No "warmer/cooler/North/South" etc hints.
Need the town and country.


This is a clue.


This is the town we need identified

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Good morning!



So far we have had, incorrectly:
Roadtown, Tortola, BVI's
Marmaris, Turkey,
Rab, Croatia


Clues so far:
Lokum Gullu = Turkish Delight and the fresh stuff from the supermarket is thousands of times cheaper, much better and FRESHer than the tourist crap in boxes. That tray was UD$4 per KILOGRAM!!

Rules of this one:
Don't look at my website (even though these photos are not on it)
Hints and more photos every 6 hours.
No "warmer/cooler/North/South" etc hints.
Need the town and country.





The Marina is on the edge of town. Damn expensive at 52 Uros/US70 per day for a 40 footer but anchor right next to it


Yum!!


Name the town.
