Green Around the World

11

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, this week’s #FriFotos theme is GREEN.  Digging through years of travel photos looking for a certain color was a challenge, but I think I found some good ones!

Here are my favorite green photos from around the world:

It’s hard not to feel on edge with all the primates running around at the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali, but it’s actually quite peaceful!  Just make sure they don’t get too close.

Still one of the most amazing sights I’ve ever seen — Dunnottar Castle in Stonehaven, Scotland.  Truly a sight to behold.

What a GREAT meal this was, on the street in Hanoi, Vietnam.  I had it immediately after a 32-hour bus ride with nothing to eat but a single roll of Oreos.  We were overcharged like crazy, but that food tasted SO GOOD.

A quintessentially Italian view in the truffle-rich hills of Sant’Agata Feltria, Emilia-Romagna, Italy.

These Swedes in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, were so committed to their crazy Christmas costumes that they didn’t even take them off while swimming in the ocean!

The Bolaven Plateau of Laos is green in every direction — an area nearly untouched by tourism, but it won’t stay that way for long.  Get there now, and on a motorbike, before the busloads of tourists arrive.

Very thin asparagus paired nicely with strawberries at Mercado San Miguel in Madrid, Spain, just a few of the culinary treasures on offer.

The surf town of Sayulita, Mexico, is filled with neon colors — including this bright green hostel!  This is one place where I’d like to spend a lot more time.

And finally, taking a break from a difficult hike in the Alps in Innsbruck, Austria — made all the nicer by views like this.

#FriFotos is open to all.  To see more photos from everyone else, follow #FriFotos on Twitter.

Which photo is your favorite?  Besides Dunnottar Castle, of course!

    I love the bright green hostel! I don’t know why we don’t paint our buildings brighter colors in the States.

  2. Beautiful selection of pictures!

  3. That food looks great– I’ll bet after 32 hours it was one of the best things you’ve ever eaten! Hunger is a funny thing…

    Beautiful pictures! I especially like the one with the Dunnottar Castle in Scotland and the one with the green plateau in Laos. Great job!

  9. Love the green theme! I was in the Himalayas at 4500 metres on Paddy’s day… to be honest I forgot about it until an American at my lodge reminded me! At slightly too high altitude to enjoy a celebratory bev, so thanks for the festively-themed photos!

  10. Well, my favorite IS the castle, but other than that I love the Laos photo and the Alpes photo, though I got most curious by the possibility of walking alongside primates!

  11. Nice round-up of photos. I just took a long weekend in Savannah GA for their St. Paddie’s Day festivities, kind of random, who knew that their’s was the second biggest in the US?
