"Been There" Virtual Travel Quiz? Round #54

See Round #20 for info about and rules for the contest.

Round #49 won by Portolan
Submitted by BKMD. Axel Towers, Copenhagen, Denmark. Copenhagen, which was my favorite city on the Scandinavia tour has bike trails/lanes throughout the country, not only in the city.

Round #50 Unoffically won by AlanS (playing behind the scenes via PM and doesn’t count)
Submitted by Smiling Sam. Gold Funerary Offering, Chimu, Imperial Epoch (1300 AD - 1532AD) found in the mud brick city of Chan Chan, the capital of the Chimu kingdom of NW Peru. The picture was taken at Lima’s Rafael Larco Herrera Museum during the Peru and Galapagos tour.

Round #51 won by Portolan
Submitted by JohnS. We are in Chitwan National Park on the river Rapti in the Terai lowlands of Nepal. This was on the first day of our Safari on the Northern India and Nepal trip.

Round #52 no winner!!!
Submitted by SueMS. This shot was taken during a walking tour of Old Town Warsaw of the Castle Inn. The inn is set in the sixteenth century townhouse of the Kościelski family in the heart of Warsaw’s picturesque Old Town, and is in itself a true work of art. Its rooms dreamt up from concepts of exquisite visionaries like Rene Magritte, Maurits Escher and Lewis Carroll.

Round #53 won by Smiling Sam
Submitted by BKMD. Hosier Lane, Melbourne, Australia "The town is a graffiti capital in Australia apparently. Recently it has been attracting the world-wide attention to its street art: the city attracts people from all around the globe, therefore they develop a really unique style."

Round #54 is officially open. Submit your photo in a reply [Leave a Comment] to this announcement.


  • Note: The Hosier Lane, from Round 53, graffiti was attacked by vandals in February.

    What/where is this castle?
    It wasn't officially visited as part of the tour, you drive right by it on both versions of this tour on the highway farthest away in the second photo.

  • Bunratty castle, Ireland

    Oooh, you guys are quick! Bunratty Castle and Folk Park in Bunratty, Ireland.

    We arrived in Ennis a day early and had previously booked (MANY months earlier) a tour of the castle, a visit to the adjacent Folk Park, and their Medieval banquet. Great entertainment w/musicians and a good meal! We booked the driver for our airport transfer to the Old Ground to take us.

    AlanS - When did you do Bunratty? I did it in 2008. Seems like I had slightly musical different entertainment.

  • July 2016

  • I was there in 2001 (not Tauck). First overseas trip for younger daughter who was 9 at the time. She was the only young kid in the group and some of the older women were buying her little gifts along the way. :)

  • My tour was with Globus. We hadn't discovered Tauck yet. Our first Tauck tour was in 2011.

  • My hubby and I were there in 2004 (did Ireland on our own). This was an especially meaningful sign on the wall in the folk park, which we took to heart throughout the trip. :D

  • And some food from the medieval banquet in the castle.

  • I remember that sign. Guinness is one of my favorites and is much better in Ireland than here, which reminds me of a funny story.

    When my kids were young, we went to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg. After the rides, etc., we went on a brewery tour. My wife doesn't drink beer and asked me how it was. I said, "Budweiser is just as bad fresh as it is in the can."

  • Speaking of Guiness, here are a few being poured as part of the Guiness Factory tour in Dublin - a great tour, especially with the last stop being in the tasting room which is at the top of the factory, which is the tallest building in Dublin.

  • I can see Bono out my window...
