    This must be my last go. I'm an ozzie in New York and all my travel pics are back home in Sydney in my mum's attic. Here's some from a place i loved. (I took a great deal of snaps there, literally identical to these- ah, tourism..). And don't look at the properties of the images- that'll give it away immediately.
    cheers

    Something about those pics make me think Mexico or Belize. Don't know why. Love the ones of the skulls. What's the story behind that?

    I know this is a horrible, horrible reference, but I think those heads appear in the animated Street Fighter II movie.

    Somehow those skulls made me think of a documentary I had seen on TV a while ago and I thought it was one about Cambodia. So I googled things up a bit, putting in "Skulls Cambodia" and was presented this image:

    With the help of this one I think I have the solution to the question "Where am I?":

    Thomas, you've not only been to Europe (Hamburg in Germany, to mention just one place) but also to CAMBODIA!

    Right?

    The Duck said, it is not necessary to put up photos of one's own. If your wife or some other family member has been to other places than yourself and has taken photos, you can put up those. I'll soon have to revert to photos that my husband took on one or the other of his business travels. I'm gradually running out of pics myself, too. But I might then - should this game go on - also ask my sister or my dad for contributions (I hope). Then we could all "travel even further" together.
