Last Time on Monday Mystery

Ted from recipereminiscing.wordpress.com has been a very welcome regular commenter on Monday Mystery, but his gorgeous photo comprised the very last MMP for 2017.

It was of course, the very famous Vigeland Sculpture park in Oslo, Norway.

  Thanks Ted for the photo!

This photo was taken on New Year’s Eve some years back, and strangely enough, both Ted and Myself were at the park on that very night!

Although we did not know of each other then!!! The snow fell right on midnight following the annual Fireworks display lighting up the sky.

A wonderful moment for a traveler in Norway!

Congratulations to Drake for correctly guessing the location.

Who will guess the location this time?

Monday Mystery Photo – Last time Bali

Every second Monday, I post a photo of a ‘mystery’ location, and sometimes a mystery object.

I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location, or what the mystery object might be.

If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog in a post the following Monday, when the answer is revealed. Comments will be released later in the week, (Thursday Australian E.S.T.) so as not to spoil the fun for latecomers, to this post.

Ted from recipereminiscing.wordpress.com has been a welcome regular commenter on Monday Mystery, but this week’s photo is one he won’t be racking his brain about, as it is his own photo that he has submitted for us to ponder about.

Can you guess the location?

Last Week’s Photo

.facebook_1511438381360.jpg

The Photo depicts a water garden called Tirta Gangga and it’s a former royal palace in eastern Bali, Indonesia, about 5 kilometres from Karangasem, near Abang. It is noted for its water palace, owned by Karangasem Royal Family. Let us all hope the tourists return to Bali soon, as the rumbling Volcano has scarred off many holidaymakers and the Balinese small business are heavily reliant on income from tourists.

Correct guesses on the location came from:

Mel and Suan from travelingmatters.net/

Lorelle from amindfultravellerblog.wordpress.com/

Well done! Great geographic knowledge!

This is the final mystery photo for 2017, although I will post the answer to this photo on 1st February.

January 1st is an extra special day in relation to this photo, although just why that is, you will have to wait until the next post, or ask Ted, of course!

MMP will return twice monthly in 2018.

Last Week’s Mystery Photo

Photo credit: Julie

Goodwood Park Hotel is Singapore’s distinguished heritage hotel. Housed in a uniquely designed building dating back to 1900. The 5-star hotel is an endearing pioneer of the Singapore tourism industry. Much of her original beauty has been faithfully restored, with the Grand Tower gazetted a national monument in 1989.

Here are the bloggers who guessed the location correctly:

Ted from https://recipereminiscing.wordpress.com/ knew it was one of the two best hotels in Singapore.

ledrakenoir recognised it as a headquarters for the Japanese army during WWII

Mel & Suan attend vintage auctions there every quarter, so knew the street address!

leggypeggy has been to many places in the world but hasn’t been lucky enough to stay there, yet!

amindfultravellerblog aka Lorelle was just there a few months ago in September!

gerard oosterman noted the colonial feel Goodwood Park hotel has.

Well done, everyone.

Will you guess correctly this week? Something I will Ponder About.

Don’t forget to let me know if you have a photo for submission.

Last Week’s Mystery Photo

Deir el-Bahri in Egypt.

The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut

Contrary to the view so often held, the great monuments of Egypt were not built by Hebrew slaves nor by slave labor of any kind. Skilled and unskilled Egyptian workers built the palaces, temples, pyramids, monuments, and raised the obelisks as paid workers.

The building was modeled after the mortuary temple of Mentuhotep II (c. 2061-2010 BCE), the great Theban prince who founded the 11th Dynasty and initiated the Middle Kingdom of Egypt (2040-1782 BCE).

It was a reasonably easy location to guess last time and so many bloggers guessed the location correctly: –

Lorelle  at https://amindfultravellerblog.wordpress.com/

Gerard at https://oosterman.wordpress.com/

Mel and Suan from https://travelingmatters.net/

Leggy Peggy from https://leggypeggy.com/

Last Week’s Mystery Photo

MMP nov6Drake corrected guessed the location of last week’s Mystery photo  and told us that, ” we were in Kazakhstan and Astana where we see the Khan Shatyr Entertainment Center. The tent of the King, with indoor beaches and waterfalls, as well as a mini golf course and botanic gardens, designed by the British architect Norman Forster. Located close to Kazakh White House which is an opera house. In many ways a fascinating city. 🙂”

Le Drake Noir/Andrikken

Thanks Drake for that informative comment. Peggy from LeggyPeggy also identified the correct location and has visited twice. Well done!

Have a great week!
