Show some holiday pics!
« on: August 18, 2018, 07:13:28 AM »
I thought I change things up a bit. Holiday season is still ongoing, so I thought it would be nice to see what everyone was up to. So, if you like, post some pics of your vacation destination. I bet we will collect some beautiful places from all over the world.

I was hiking a lot the last two weeks, here's a best-of including the "Hohe Tauern" and some parts of Vorarlberg, both in Austria.












More pictures on my blog linked in my profile, if someone is interested.

Incredible!  Thanks for sharing those pix.  With our house on the market and an old dog I blew off vacation this year, although hoping to get to Canada to be with family this Christmas.  This will be a great thread.

Finally I have some photos to put on this thread. 

My dad declared that he wanted to climb Mt. Everest.  We were all well shocked.  After a few more questions, we realised he meant Mt. Kosciusko - the highest point in Australia.  Easy to get the two confused I guess. 

So my dad, my son and I walked up to the top a few weekend back.  It's about 4 hours walking round trip from Thredbo, with the highest point being about 2200m altitude.  Yep, Australia isn't known for its high peaks. 

Still a nice view though.

My recent travels have involved scenic mountain views as well (sort of).
Here is a tiny portion of the "world's largest" indoor model railroad setup at EnterTRAINment Junction near Cincinnati, Ohio, US:

The whole thing is really quite huge (relatively speaking -- how does one describe a gigantic miniature model anyway?) and well worth a visit.

That place is very impressive, far more impressive than I thought something like that would be. I was there last summer with my kids and their grandparents and everybody had a good time.

They even hid some pretty hilarious stuff in there that you’d never find unless someone showed you. A hobo taking a dump was hidden somewhere.

My last trip was a long weekend in Nashville for our anniversary.
