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.

Can you guess where the following mystery photo is located?

 

Guest contributor SnowmeltsSomewhere submitted the photograph shown below, shortly before she took a blogging break to have her baby.

Snow tells us that the photo is taken in Lisbon, in the Old town, in what obviously was a quiet moment, perhaps early morning?

Many bloggers thought the location was Spain or Italy and it certainly could pass for an old French or Italian/Spanish street. So, who guessed correctly?

Previous Mystery Photo

The photo here under, of me, standing beside a soldier from a historical re-enactment group. The challenge was to find the location for this military group, based on his costume.

FB_IMG_1497433584411

This re-enactment group is actually based in Trondheim, Norway. In those days, the King of Norway was actually Prince Christian Frederik of Denmark, so this soldier wears the yellow faced uniform of the Trondheim Regiment, of Northern Grenadiers, in the Danish Norwegian Army fighting the Swedes in 1809 – 1814. Read more about the re-enactment groups here.

Norwegian soldiers had been fighting the Swedes for many years. As many as 3000 Swedish soldiers died out in the mountains on the border of Sweden and Norway near Røros, during a bleak winter as they were retreating back home, defeated.

Here the group are parading in the Constitution Day parade in Trondheim with their drummers. They look rather grand, I think.

Their hats are rather unusual, and remind me a little of a feather duster on a beaver’s back!! And there is my friend from the Monday Mystery photograph – in the middle of the photo!

The Winners:

It was a very difficult challenge and Ted from Recipe Reminiscing and Gerard from Oostermans Treats Blog were closest to the mark!  That was so clever of them both!

Good luck this week!
