Monday’s Travel Photos – Highlights of 2012

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

I wanted to pick out the highlights of my Monday’s Travel Photos posts in 2012 but rather than choose my own favourites, always a difficult task, I asked Relationnel to tell me which of my Monday’s travel photos he preferred month by month. These, of course, are not the places I went to in 2012, but taken from various holidays over the last few years. Which is your favourite? Or is there a photo you remember from another post that you prefer?

    Lake Annecy for me 🙂 Reminds me of a stayover there..such a beautiful area..we experienced three seasons in 3 days ….coldest day EVER, well it felt like it..wondered why there was no-one around..guess we were the only STUPID ones to be out and about…I thought my ears were going to freeze off! then a warmer, sunny spring day…then we woke up to snow laiden rooftops! So amazing. Also took a boat cruise on this river..views to absolutely die for!

      Annecy certainly has very changing weather! We started out cycling around the lake in bright sunshine and finished in a cold downpour in the middle of July. But I agree, the views are stunning.

    of those photos shortlisted today, I find the one of the Dancing House in
    Prague most striking. My architectural genes kicked in. I wonder what my grandfather who designed our parish church would have thought of it. Of course I googled it to see and learn more about it. I really like the view from the river but find the view from the side street, with the curved glass unsettling.

      It’s amaazing, isn’t it? Prague has a greater range of architecture than any other city I’ve seen yet, including Paris and London.

    Some photos I like because of the artistry and others I like because of the beauty. I think the Dancing House is certainly very interesting – has appeal as well as strangeness – a bit like the building near your area in Paris that seems to have a ‘cover’ over the whole building.
    The canals in St Petersburg remind me of a highlight of my trip there in 2009. I did a canal boat tour at midnight and during the tour we went out to the sea and passed under the bridges and soon the bridges opened! Besides being a fantastic experience to see the bridges like this it was a relatively cheap tour for a few hours duration.
