    Shouldn't that be “Napflio” rather than “Nafplio”. I've been to the former but don't know the latter.. Nice pics.

    Nope! Nafplio or Nafplion depending on your preference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nafplio

    That I did! Every single one of them. Brutal, but well worth it. Definitely an incredible view! Few more photos from my time there up here: http://www.alex-berger.net/MainGallery/thumbnai

    Absolutely gorgeous photos, Alex. My favorite by far is the cave in Scotland, but then again I've always wanted to visit that part of the world so I'm biased. One thing I see missing here is a big continent called “Asia”…going to head over here anytime soon to get some good shots?

    Thanks! I've definitely falling in love with the Northern Coast of Scotland. When you go, make sure to push beyond Skye and the Highlands and up into the real wild north.

    Unfortunately, no Asia yet! I'm hoping sometime soon, though my next trip will be taking me back to Europe – Central Europe this time or Scandinavia depending on inter-country airfare from Dublin. I'm saving Asia for a long trip. I feel like a 16 day introductory trip is just too short.

    Beautiful! Am in the midst of deciding to get a G11 or not and I was just searching for travel photos taken with G11. Your photos convinced me. 🙂

    I was there in June of last year – everything was fresh and green like your
    shots…but I saw photos of the place in winter too and feel like if I am
    ever in the region I will head back there to check it out again, it looked
    stunning.

    I think that the best shots are the winding road and the Cinque Terre! Great work man. I actually went to breakfast with that parrot in Flores as well. I have a couple shots of him, from back before I was a photographer, that shot is really cool

      Thanks! Beautiful places for sure. I think that parrot is a staple of the Flores tourism experience.

    Nice collection, Alex. Thanks for gently pushing me into doing my own 30 (or 50!) favorite travel photos too. It’s about time I follow suit. 🙂

      Definitely, i’m eager to see the shots you decide to post! I actually need to update this one as it doesn’t include any of my Argentina or Norway shots….I wonder if Top 40 or 50 is getting extreme? lol!

        I doubt it, Alex. With hundreds of photos taken per destination, what’s a mere top 50 best? You may even do sequels of this: 30 of My Favorite Travel Photos in ___________ . (wide grin) Go for it.
