  1. Hi Belita!! Three great shots for Benni's theme. Lovely shot of Vienna, looks very colourful and cosmopolitan. The Azores town is beautiful, I love the pastel colours of all the buildings (very similar to some towns here in Wales, actually, like Tenby). Wonderful countryside in the third shot.

    1. Thanks, Mitch! Wien is a very lively and colourful city, which makes me love it. That Azores town is in the Terceira island. It became very important as the Portuguese discoverers sailed to the 'New World'. It was the first Portuguese town to be recognized as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. You see that countryside when you sail up the Douro River that takes you to the Port wine region.

  3. Hi, Belita. Three terrific shots. You have captured the vibrancy of Wien, another European city I have visited and loved. I enjoy your street view of the people walking about and the colorful signs. The town in the Azores certainly deserves his Heritage site honors; it's intriguing with that little doorway begging me to come in. What a stunning shot of the Portuguese countryside!! I love how you have included the gentle hill and the white houses reflected in the river. Thank you for participating.

  4. Wien is one of my favourite cities as well, I love it. Lovely photo on the Azores. I would love to visit those islands once, mainly for the vegetation. The Portuguese view is lovely, I want to go there again.

  6. The first shot is so full of life. I like all of the details, and movement. The man and woman facing each other arouse my curiosity, I wonder what they are talking about? :) I like the colorful houses and blue skies in the Azores photo and the country side is a beautiful panorama!

  11. I love to travel with you Belita. Such captivating photographs all. The first one so strikes me as similar to street scenes from my years in Denmark. The Walking Street (Gaa-Gaden) in Copenhagen, no cars allowed, loads of shops and small cafes, stretching from one side to the other of the city. Great entries.
