Let Your Mind Travel…

Another post inspired by Marina at mexploring.blog. She suggested a guessing game with photos… I’m at a stage where I feel like experimenting with new things on my blog, so why not?

Hmm, how to do this? I decided to recycle some photos from my older posts. Those of you who have followed my blogging journey from the beginning will have seen these already, but many of you probably haven’t. They didn’t attract a lot of attention when they were published because I was a new blogger back then without many readers at all.

So, can you guess where these five photos were taken?

I would love it if you took a wild guess (or an educated guess) and then explained the reasoning behind it!

Of course, you could always do an image search but where’s the fun in that? This isn’t homework that you must complete. Who cares if you’re right or wrong! So maybe put away your google fingers for this one and just guess with your eyes and heart. Give your fingertips a well-deserved rest, and do some yoga for the mind… let it wander…






If the last photo seems too hard (to me, it does!), let me tell you that it was featured on Monday Mystery Photoย over at Amanda’s blog Something to Ponder About a while ago, and I was stunned when someone guessed correctly straight away!

By the way, do have a look at Amanda’s blog too, her Monday Mysteries are legendary!

I’m looking forward to your guesses and explanations – I hope you have a minute in your busy day to play with me!

I’ll tell you the answers in my next post later this week.

  1. What a beautiful guessing group. I don’t wish to spoil the game for others so I’m not gonna reveal anything! Said that: I’m not sure at all about the last photo, not even about the country… could be either this or that. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • That’s right, make us wait, SMSW. When your babes start to watch cartoon, show them one and make them wait for the next one till the next day. And goes the same for TV series. ๐Ÿ˜€ One week in between! As we had it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Builds the character!

        • Hahah! Can you imagine waiting a whole week now?! ๐Ÿ˜ Though I seem to remember that Inspector Gadget, my favorite TV program, came every day in Australia, or so it seemed. Then when we moved to Finland, everything came only once a week. (And no Inspector Gadget). Builds character, hahah! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Aha. Now I find the shoe is on the other foot as I am the one trying to guess!! And it isn’t easy at all. Except for the last photo and I won’t spoil the fun for that one as it seems like I would be cheating! But i will have a guess and am going to say the glacial ice is from Iceland or canada?
    Thanks for the mention, my friend!

  3. I have no precise ideas for any answers but I liked photo #3 as it looked like the South of France – it made me think of Nice with its windows and shutters… then the car parked in front of the building made me realized I was completely wrong as well as the design of house number. So I’m thinking Spain (because of the shape of the door)? Argentina (I’ve never been but that is how i imagine it)?…

  4. Wow! This is pretty hard. Let me make an attempt:

    1. Chile
    2. Iceland/Finland (are two possible answers ok?)
    3. Palma
    4. The airport in Finland
    5. Scotland

    The above answers are given with no confidence at all ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Wii, guessing games! *feeling like a muse and blushing a little bit* thank you for sharing the inspiration, dear!
    I have really NO idea and I don’t possess the google fingers (sweet name) so I will go just straightforward guessing. I haven’t been beyond Europe, so that makes it even easier, haha. As you say, I just do the mental yoga, let my mind wander and follow the intuition.
    This is what it said (so far).
    1. Ecuador (no idea why). Spanish language, but the rest? It seems like you’ve been there, so that’s why.
    2. Patagonia. Bc this how the end of the world must look like))
    3. My intuition said Cuba, but it really doesn’t look much like Cuba. And Spain. So let it be Cuba/Spain.
    4. Frankfurt airport. Just because)))
    5. Greece? The orthodox mystic in me woke up and said this word.

    • Very good guessing!!! Canโ€™t say more just yet, but I can tell from your guesses that you have certainly been traveling… ๐Ÿค— Amandaโ€™s MMP really is so fun – though I must admit Iโ€™m a terrible guesser myself and usually am completely wrong! But it doesnโ€™t ruin the fun for me, I just still keep on guessing ๐Ÿ˜

  7. As Iโ€™m one of your new followers, I certainly haven’t seen these photos before! And I donโ€™t know how to find them via a google image search – can you really just put a photo into google and it tells you where it is? Amazing!
    My guesses – the first one is obviously a Spanish speaking country. Somewhere tropical as thereโ€™s palm trees, is it Cuba?
    No2 I have no idea, total guess, Norway?
    No3 no cues here, so Iโ€™m guessing Spain? Canary Idlsnds?
    No4 is probably the hardest to guess, I canโ€™t find any clues at all. Iโ€™ll guess Holland. Hahaha I hear you laugh…..
    No5 – no idea, but Iโ€™ve seen old painted churches like this in Greece. The window doesnโ€™t look Greek though, is it Greece?

    Iโ€™ve definitely scored 0/5……

    • Thanks for giving it a go, Georgie! I’ve never used an image search either and I don’t know how it works exactly. Apparently, you put the image url somewhere and it searches for similar images… or something like that! (Or maybe I dreamt the whole thing?) Anyway, I’ll reveal the answers soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Picture1 – I would say somewhere in Spain, maybe Canary islands? Picture 2: this one is easy, it must be the Kalahari, just south of Phuduhudu. Picture 3: Perhaps Havanna? Picture 4: I haven’t got a clue! It most certainly is not the Kalahari just north of Strampriet. Picture 5: Aya Sofia?

  9. Hi Snow. I might be right about a couple but they are overall quite difficult I think. Let me try anyway
    1. Somewhere in South America is all I can say because of the language. Maybe Argentina?
    2. Patagonia
    3. Somewhere in Italy?
    4. Could be somewhere in Spain due to the distant buildings and the hill.
    5. The hardest! Anywhere in Europe, although the colors tell me that it could be one of the countries where they follow Orthodox Christianity.. Greece, Bulgaria perhaps?

    I missed the last photo in Amanda’s blog, but I also love her MMP posts! What a fun idea for a blog post ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks dear! I remember seeing a Nepalese photo of yours on Amandaโ€™s blog, right? ๐Ÿ˜Š I donโ€™t always remember to visit MMP so I sometimes miss quite a few of them, but itโ€™s fun when I do get there!
      Loved reading your responses and reasoning, you are so close! Good detective work, hahah! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for guessing ๐ŸŒป

  11. This is fun! I haven’t been around WP much lately but I used to check out Amandaโ€™s ‘Monday Mystery Photo’ posts – such a nice idea for an online community game. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Here are my guesses:
    1- It’s in a Spanish speaking country because of the text in the store sign, I would say probably in South America but can’t guess a specific country.
    2- Alaska or Iceland? The two places that come to mind when thinking of icebergs.
    3- The architecture and the sun make me guess it’s somewhere in Mediterranean Europe?
    4- Looks like there’s a big city and mountains in the background, I have no idea – perhaps in Rio (Brasil)?
    5- Haha this one is hard! It looks like the interior of a church but I really don’t know where.

    • Good guesses Ines!!! You were quite right with the last one! And not far with number 4! Thanks for joining the fun ๐Ÿ˜Š And yes, Amandaโ€™s posts are fun!!
      I should probably take a little WP break too, Iโ€™m not that inspired to post anything right now!

    • Thanks Julie! So many of my lovely blogger friends guessed South America for the first one, but it’s from the Caribbean! ๐Ÿ™‚ The answers are in the next post, I published it on Friday. I love guessing games but usually I’m hopeless, too!!! But I don’t mind, for me, that isn’t the point!

  12. This is difficult but such a fun idea with gorgeous photos! I’m going to guess that #1 is Costa Rica, #2 is Chile. The rest would be a total shot in the dark… ๐Ÿ™‚ #3.. somewhere in Europe. #4 – no idea but love that you captured the skyline and mountains. #5 – again somewhere in Europe LOL

  13. Without looking at other comments I got Brazil? …Or at least somewhere South American-y for no.1. For no2. Switzerland …I mean this could be lots of places, Iceland? Austria? For no.3 Mexico…or somewhere where they have those bright, bright almost citrus colored buildings! Chile? Cuba?….What have I won? I am available to pick up my new car at any time. ๐Ÿ˜€
