Where in the World is the Wild Rider Now?

Wow! What a Wild Ride. After traveling thousands of miles and taking thousands of photographs, I’m back. I met lots of fun people, saw some amazing sights, ate the most delectable foods and danced, of course.

I gave up on blogging after a few frustrating attempts and remained unplugged for most of the trip. I know! Hard to believe, right?

I just downloaded most of my 5000 pictures and froze up my computer. Sheesh! I am off to the store to buy more memory. Back to ye old grind.

The contest continues. Figure out where in the world I roamed and win a trinket stolen purchased from a wammer scammer respectable vendor in the park. Get your clues in the photographs below or stalk me on Facebook. The more specific you are, the better. If there are multiple winners, then I will draw a name.

Good Luck!

This place had eye candy everywhere! A feast for the eyes and soul and the obvious…

The winner will receive everything in the case above. Kidding! Wouldn’t that be most excellent? I miss that country already.

A souvenir trinket will be sent to the winner. Really!

The winners will be announced at the end of the entire contest.

Say a prayer for fellow blogger and wonderful writer Suzanne Vince who is having a bilateral mastectomy today. Her husband, who is in the military, will be taking over her blog for the next two weeks. Leave a note here. 

Where is your favorite place in the world?

    Reblogged this on My Blog snuppy.

  5. My guess would be the south of France near Nice. Those look like French pastries to me. I’m drooling all over my keyboard. :-)

  6. My guess is view towards Capri….bay of naples…..?

  7. France or Italy. I am not sure. But such lovely views!

  8. Is it Nice? Yes, very nice indeed… :-)

  10. Hey those pics look amazing … I know the contest is probably over but I’m still taking a guess. I’m thinking France seeing how the flag is hanging around in your first shot :) Dude and what a “hideous” shot that is :) duuuuuuuuuuuude. Looks like a great place, glad you’re back and ready to share all your pics.

  11. Glad you had a great trip. That second pix is perfect. (could make a story about that being a picture of life: the buildings, the flowers, textures, the doors, the windows, the uphill road – with a bridge no less. Great great shot.
    (Catching up – flying over to Suzanne’s – will snack and chat later)

  12. Beautiful, mysterious pics, Susie!
    Glad to hear of your adventure. You deserve all the happiness in the world, baby!

  13. Heya Susie it’s lovely to see you back. 5000 pics omg
    am so glad you had such a fun time, have no idea about the places but the food platter in the last pic oh my favourite :)
    hugs n love :)

  14. Glad you had a great time, Susie!
    I’m leaving on vacation in 2 days, too! (on 2 wheels, though) LOL

  15. Welcome back, Susie!
    Fantastic pictures of Cote d’azur, frances.

  16. Welcome back, Susie! I was on vaca as well and, like you, the frustration of trying to upload from the road drove me crazy! Your pics are beautiful. Is it Corfu?

  17. I don’t know where this is….but I WANT TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll be waiting breathlessly for the “reveal”…unless of course you want to tell me ahead of time…(I won’t share the info with ANYONE…I PROMISE!!)

  18. For some reason you are not showing up in my reader? Darn WP. Thanks for stopping by. Good to see you!
    Pics are amazing!!

  19. I have to agree with several of the other readers: Saint Paul de Vence. Looks like an amazing trip, Susie. I hope you’re feeling great.

  20. The beauty in those photos is incredible! I’m not going to guess, I’m just going to sit here and imagine I’m there enjoying the scenery, while I enjoy one of those delicious pastries.
    Glad you unplugged and engaged in your surroundings. Dancing on foreign soil gives you permission to use the term “International dancer” on your resume.

  21. Good to see you back raring to go again!
    I’m sitting on De Vence on this one … :)

  22. At a (complete) guess – southern France? Places that look particularly wonderful from wintery New Zealand anyhow. Glad you had a good time & hope your recovery’s going well.

  23. So glad to hear you had a great time, Susie. I wasn’t too interested in the geography just as long as you were in a happy place. Pics are great. Hope there will be more to come.

  24. I don’t have a clue where you are, but I am loving the photos! Thanks for your globetrotting and your photography.

  25. The gorgeous place photos could be so many beautiful places in Europe, but those desserts have got to be in France somewhere!

  26. Since I do my best to avoid leaving Manhattan island, my guess would be based on other commenters nailing where you guys went. I’ll just say you indulged yourselves in a picturesque place with fantastic desserts where I don’t speak the language, even though I studied it for five years and only learned two expressions: je ne sais quoi and merde.

  27. Looks like St. Paul de Vence to me — possibly Eze, but I lean toward the former. One of my favorite areas.

  28. Spoilers!

    My guess: 104 Rue Grande, 06570 Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France @ CHOISY LA GALERIE. I am hoping that is specific enough.:)

  29. filbio

    What amazing pictures! Wherever you went I want to go there! Hopefully soon we will be able to travel overseas as my fiancee’ is recovering rom surgery and can’t fly for a year. Hope you are feeling great!

  30. I’ll guess my 2nd favourite spot in the world, Ville France Sur Mer :) ~Catherine

  31. Beautiful pictures! I am not well-traveled, so I have no clue as to where you were, but some place amazing!

  32. I don’t know where you are but I am in love with mystery photo #2. Gorgeous!!

  33. Anonymous

    Cannes for #1 and Paris for #4 the others have to be southern Italy?

  34. I figure either Bologna or Emilia Romania in Italy. My favorite place, the Train Museum outside of Denver CO.

  35. My guess is the french must have something to do with the country as no one makes pastries like that.. No one..:)

  36. I’m guessing Cannes, where you were responsible for last week’s $53 million jewel heist.

  37. I may not be good with geography, but I do know when I like a photograph! Absolutely beautiful! Wish I had been there with you …:-)

  38. Glad you are doing well Suzie, welcome back!!

  39. I’m guessing Amalfi coast in Italy.

  40. Well i have no idea… but with a plate of cakes like that I wish I was there…

  41. No idea, but it looks like a great place to visit. Looks like you had fun.

  42. My guess is the tiny town of Eze near Monaco in France. I just saw a travel show about it and now it’s on my Bucket List.
    Absolutely beautiful! Can’t wait to hear all about your trip, wherever you went!

    great to see you back and so happy you had a wonderful vacation away from it all. enjoyed seeing your pictures occasionally. i feel like i’ve been unplugged since may, it’s hard to get back on track after such a fun filled adventure.

  44. So glad to hear you and dancing. And unplugging! Yay you! Enjoy yourself, my sweet. And eat some more sweets. Indulge. You deserve it.

    • Thanks Renee!
      It was a blast. Most Europeans are unplugged. I came back and see Americans glued to their phones. It looks strange after being gone so long. Back to reality….

  45. Glad you enjoyed your wonderful getaway! And especially, that you danced! :) I sent a note to Suzanne and will be praying for her speedy recovery. I traveled through Spain for my 40th birthday (a few years ago…) and loved it. Italy and Greece would be my next destinations. :)

  46. The french flag was a clue. I am guessing Menton on the south coast. I don’t know what the other coasts look like. Thrilled that you are having such a nice time :)

  47. I have no idea where you were but please tell me you tried one of everything in that pastry case!!!!

  48. Wherever you are, you look like you’re getting some fabulous sights and wonderful foods… Enjoy! Said a prayer for your friend and dropped her a line.

    • Thanks Kitt!
      She only had precancerous cells, but it is hereditary in her case. It is a pretty major surgery. I just got through my eighth week and have to go back in for the second and last surgery at the end of the month. Similar down time, but not half as painful. Thank God!!!

  49. It looks suspiciously like the ancient Village of Eze and the goodies could be from any French market including the wonderful one in Nice. It looks like you had a great trip.

  50. You’re at 2 Rue de l’Etoile, Saint Paul de Vence, just west of Nice in the south of France. And can you bring me back one of those chocolate eclairs?

  51. Can’t keep a good Rider down!
    Umm…you’re in Disney World! Nobody recreates old Europe like Disney World.

  52. Portofino, Italy? I guess this because your photos are gorgeous and it’s the main place I want to visit before I die. Good to know you’re having such a great time, Susie. Blogging can definitely take a backseat to traveling.

  53. Tu es en Provence.

    That is it for my French – you are just northeast of Nice in Provence. There is nothing like a French patisserie – the display sucks you in and the blue sky lets the sun bring a vibrancy to the colors of the world like no place else. Glad you are home with memories.

  54. I’m gonna go with France. Sea, islands, mountains… I’m guessing an island in the Mediterranean? I’m gonna go with Corsica as well. Never been there, but I hear it’s beautiful!

  55. Ooh much over excitement there I’m afraid. So glad that you’re doing well and look forward top seeing more photographs from what looks like a highly enviable trip!!!

  56. I know! I know! I’ve been thinking of you all along and can’t wait until we hear the deets! Welcome home … and when are you going again?

  57. My guess is the French Riveara. Or one of the French islands in the Caribbean. I guess that’s two guess’s, isn’t it? Where ever you are it is gorgous!! I love it. If you need a cabanna boy to carry your bags or drive you all around please contact me! Hope you are feeling well!

  58. Ignore my previous comment. YOU’RE IN SAINT PAUL DE VENCE, FRANCE. I think.

  59. Hmm. Well, I see the French flag and a case full of pastries, but other than that I’ve got nothing but wild guesses. (Saint-Nazaire? Hyeres? Marseille?)

    Wherever. It’s beautiful.

  60. I would guess Corsica, too, Susie. Beautiful shots. Sounds like it was a wonderful trip!

  61. Wow! Beautiful pictures, Susie. I’m not sure where that was, but it sure looks like some places my wife and I have been dreaming of visiting. It sounds like you’re doing well. I’m so glad to hear it.
    Thanks for sharing. *waves*


  62. I’m going for Bastia – Corsica, or Marseille.

  63. I’m not very well travelled, but I’m guessing that you weren’t in Kentucky?

  64. It looks stunning…
    My favourite place in the world is Paris. I’ve been a few times now and I love it.

  65. This looks like Italy, one of my favorite places in the world. Amalfi?? Hope you’re doing well, Susie!
