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?

  1. 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*



  2. 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.


  3. 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!


  4. 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!!!


  5. 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!


  6. 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.


  7. 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.


    • 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!!!


  8. 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 :)


  9. 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. :)


    • 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….


  10. 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.


  11. 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!


  12. 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!


  13. 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.


  14. 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.


  15. 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.


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


  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. 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?


  19. 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 :)


  20. 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)


  21. 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.
