Monday Mystery Photo – Last week France

Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I invite you to leave a comment, if you think you know the location, or what it is. If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog, when the answer is revealed, the following Monday.

Guest Submissions are very welcome!

Please note that I will release comments in the latter part of each week, usually Thursday or Friday, Australia time, and in this way, everyone can have a guess without a spoiler being revealed prematurely.

Can you guess this location?

Lorelle has kindly submitted another mystery photo (see immediately below). Lorelle is a fellow Aussie who blogs under the name amindfultravellerblog so that gives you a hint as to the wonderful places she posts about.

Last Week’s Mystery Photograph

Lorelle 1

Saint Paul de Mausole, Saint-Remy de Provence, France. This was where Van Gogh was hospitalised in his latter years and it is now open to the public. Read more here.

Lorelle tells me she had a wonderful week stay in this French countryside town of Saint-Remy.

Many guessed that this location was France, and quite a few Provence, but no one guessed the exact location! Thanks Lorelle, for an excellent Mystery photo!

Those who guessed the country/region correctly include:

Previous Monday Mystery Photo

 

Lorelle from amindfultravellerblog submitted the mystery photo last time.

Lorelle’s mystery photo did in fact look like somewhere in Croatia, (great guess Mel and Suan), but it was, in fact, the medieval bridge in Dolceaqua, Italy (Northern Italy). Lorelle tells me that it is such a picturesque little town in the hills. The bridge dates from the 15th century and at one time, inspired Monet.

Ted from Recipe Reminiscing  identified the location as “…il ponte di Dolce Acqua in Italy close to the French border not far from Nice.”  Drake was also quick off the mark to advise it was an, “Amazing Italian village separated in two by the river Nervia. Almost on the edge between Italy and France. The bridge is about 600 years old. Dolceacqua where the oldest part is call Terra.” I also should mention Peggy who guessed the location as Italy.

Well done, everyone!

Good luck with this week’s photo. MMP – Always finding a new destination to Ponder About.

Proverbial Thursday – Pearls of Wisdom

I find there to be profound wisdom in proverbs, sayings and quotes and I marvel at the way they are so succinct, in communicating messages, to the reader. Mostly anonymous, they come to us from past generations and from across cultures. They speak of the experiences of lives lived and lessons learned. Quotes, like proverbs, make us think more deeply about something.

 

Each Thursday, I post a Proverb or Saying and a Quote that I find thought-provoking. 

I hope you think so too.

 

 

Moffat Beach

Tooway Creek, Moffat Beach

 

Do you believe things happen for a reason, or is there merely a continuum of movement and progression (forward or sometimes backwards), in your life? Just as the river flows from its spring to the estuary, we are all on a journey from the lofty beginnings of life to the wide, winding meanderings of a river close to its mouth.

 

This week’s proverb comes from Poland and has many layers.

 

Do not push the river, it will flow by itself.

Polish Proverb

 

 

 

 

The quote this week comes from  Danish physicist Niels Bohr: –

 

 

 

 “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.”

 

 

I sense a touch of irony in his words. What do you make of them?

and…

How much do you push the ‘river’ – or do you always go ‘with the flow?’
