Flip Flop Flying

Some photographs

with 25 comments

A bit late, I know, but Happy New Year. Today I’m feeling all jetlaggy. Back in Berlin after a lovely holiday. Back to the ice-encrusted, spent-firework-scarred, grit-coated streets. Back to the wind cutting through me. Back to wearing a coat after nearly three weeks of wearing a t-shirt from morning ’til midnight. Aaaah, post-holiday blues… doncha just love ‘em?
Here’s some photographs. Can you guess where I went?

  2. Welcome back. Post-holiday blues suck don’t they.

    I reckon (and my geography is pretty bad becuase all I learnt in geography at school was about nuclear villages and the seed drill) that you were somewhere in South America, maybe Cuba.

  5. Oh, welcome back Craig! How I’ve missed you! Hope you have come back loaded with inspiration.
    Hmm… the colours look like Greece but t-shirt both day and night – it cannot be that warm in January? And a waterfall? Don’t tell us you’ve been in Africa?!

    And again – glad you’re back after a well deserved break. ;)

  7. Hi and welcome back. This is a toughy – I would have said the Carribean, except for the last shot that looks rather like Cheddar Gorge on a wet November morning! Brazil (but no hammocks)or Madagascar, and I’m only suggesting the last one because you would sit on a plane saying it over and over in your head until you couldn’t stop laughing ‘cos it starts to sound like a toilet cleaner…..or a mental eastern European hatchback.

  19. If it wasn’t for the last shot I’d put money on Cameroon.

  21. Changed my mind – am convinced it’s Cameroon and will go so far as to put money on it after all – will give fifty quid to charity of your choice if am wrong.

    At the risk of sounding like a mad woman I reckon it’s Cameroon mainly because the waterfall looks like the falls at Kribi (a spot so ridiculously beautiful that I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry and I wanted to hug the view and I felt like I was going to burst from the joy of it all). See: http://geo.ya.com/travelimages/cameroon11.jpg

    And then other random reasons that I can’t justify, like:
    - sky above the blue building just looks like African sky
    - WC sign just looks like an African sign
    - landscapes and road and church just look Cameroonian

    And even more randomly:
    - Coca Cola, sadly, seems to be more widely available in Africa than drinking water
    - and lastly, when you were talking about your Grandpa you said that in one of the pictures you liked to think he was on safari, and so perhaps Africa trip was in your head when you wrote that.

    But still thrown by the last shot and also why jet-lagged as not very big time difference (although appreciate would be long flight).

    Anyway, if I am wrong and have made a complete tit of myself, will be money well spent as have had lovely evening looking a photos from squillions of years ago.

    (Blimey – never made a comment before today – this is probably far too long and breach of good blogging manners – apologies in advance.)

  24. i’d say africa, or perhaps morrocco? To be honest i have no idea. But i love the little house area with th painted walls, like life is coming out of the inside of the walls, if you know what i mean?

  25. Aaaah, comments! I like thee.
    Thanks. It’s good to be back. Nice to read all your guesses. The good thing is now I know that I don’t need to go to Cameroon or some of the other places you’ve mentioned as they all look like the south of México!
