    Yeah looks beautiful all year round. I went last summer it was about 30ish degrees so very nice. Couple of nights there was thunder and torrential rain which was quite nice and new to see. I'm not sure I'd like to visit during the winter though haha.

    Do you live there or have you moved to the UK or what?

    In the winter it's amazing because there are no tourists. And any time I've been it's surprisingly warm- that water is still flowing, but the railings have all frozen from the mist.

    It's the best I've got... when I went on DofE expedition. This is in [email protected] least I think it is.
    Is that the river Wye? It looks a bit like the view from Symonds Yat, which would make it a few miles into England (from Wales)

    Ah wow that's surprising. Which part of Canada are you from?
    I'd love to revisit to be honest, the week I went was pretty rushed.

    Three things I really hated
    1 - the fact that taxis would overcharge us because we were tourists. They'd make up new rules and a 20 minute drive would work out to about 100 dollars +
    2 - we ordered a few pizzas to a hotel and one 12 inch was 50 dollars. WHAAAT?!
    3 - If we asked where the nearest Wendy's or whatever was, people in Canada would be like "ah it's just down the road and turn left"... But down the road means 40 minutes. Everything is so far, nothing is walking distance

    I think it very well could be. I wasn't sure where I was at the time. I asked the people from my group and half of them said Wales and the other half England. I know we were standing on some platform and some wooden buildings and stuff behind us with walking bridges.

    My family lives a few hours north of Toronto.

    I get the impression that's a massive generalisation. I've never paid that much for a pizza in Canada, or anywhere else in the world. But it depends on where you've ordered it from I guess. I don't have a problem with the fact that things aren't walkable. My favourite thing about Canada is the wide open roads. It's not unusual for me to jump in my car on a Saturday in the summer and go for a 10hour drive 'just because'. But from a tourist perspective I can understand that would be frustrating if you want to walk everywhere.

    The greatest city in the world (in my opinion, anyway). The view across the Bosphorus at night is magnificent.

    But the view from Delphi is probably the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. It's even better at twilight. Pictures cannot capture how breathtaking it is.

    Attachment 205783

    Delphi in the West of Ireland? Love Conemara/Mayo. The Atlantic light is hard to descirbe.

    The three annoyances I listed were minor to be honest. Don't get me wrong it wouldn't stop me moving there. I'd also love to go on long drives etc. The things I loved about the place would be too long to list. Beautiful place.

    Yeah, it's Salzburg

    I have a lot of family there, so I've been quite a few times, but the culture, architecture, scenery and people take my breath away every time!
