Traveler’s Show & Tell – 19th Edition

Welcome to this week’s Traveler’s Show & Tell blog carnival. As usual, I have contributed a photo to accompany the best travel-related blog posts I received this week. If you enjoy what you read, please leave a comment on their blog to let the authors know.

This Week’s Photo

I took this week’s photo while crossing the Rialto Bridge in Venice, Italy. I like how the graffitti girl seems to be eyeing those Venetian masks. Can’t decide, however, if she is feeling wistful or contemptuous. What do you think?

1. “Those Ruins Aren’t Aztec” by Pamela Jorrick

Pamela Jorrick presents Those Ruins Aren’t Aztec posted at Blah, Blah, Blog. As she explains:

I always think of the east coast of the United States as being the side of the country that hosts the most history, but driving through the American Southwest immersed us in times past. Much of it is more modern- the whole wild west expansion stuff, but there were people here long before the cowboys- and in the South West, you can still see tons of evidence of the lives of the ancestral Pueblo peoples.

2. “Driving in Norway” by Andrzej Wróbel

Andrzej presents Driving in Norway posted at across the world, saying,

“[My site is] about trips to far-away destinations and nearby places, about people who just passed by and about those, who have left a mark in my heart for ever… [Regarding “Driving in Norway,” Andrzej adds] I never had as much fun throwing snowballs as I did back then in the middle of the summer.”

3. “Top 5 Memories of Big Sur’s Andrew Molera Park” by Byteful Travel

Byteful Travel presents Top 5 Memories of Big Sur’s Andrew Molera Park (How to Charge Seagulls & Live) posted at Byteful Travel, saying,

“There are some days when the very air you breathe seems to embrace you like a comforting hug. September 9th was *not* one of those days. It was better. On our way back north, my aunt and I spotted another captivating park within Big Sur, CA: The Andrew Molera State Park (or AMSP). As it turned out, this second stop in Big Sur had many surprises in store and would give me the opportunity to touch the waters of the Pacific for the first time in over four years.”

4. “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” by Matthew Hyde

Matthew Hyde presents Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay (some memories of San Francisco) posted at Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth. Matthew describes his post as:

“Some memories of my trip to San Francisco, including insane taxi drivers, hippies, geekery at Alcatraz and an epiphany at Pier 39.”
