Wordless Wednesday

I had mentioned to someone the other day that we had visited a place near Helsinki and have since realised I got the name wrong. That is what happens when you don't keep notes of where you have visited. It gave me the idea to use it for my Wordless Wednesday.


Finnish World War 2 cemetery near Poorvoo, Helsinki.

Wordless Wednesday - Kilauea volcano Hawaii.


 


This is a vent with hot air escaping from the volcano. I can't remember how hot our guide said it was but many many times higher than boiling point. He said under no condition put hands or feet beyond the bars. Of course someone had to try it and it peeled the skin right off his hand. His guide rushed him off to hospital but I don't know what happened because he wasn't from our group.

Wordless Wednesday - Day and Night.

 The Aloha Tower is a retired lighthouse that is considered one of the landmarks of the state of Hawaii in the United States. Opened on September 11, 1926, at a then astronomical cost of $160,000, the Aloha Tower is located at Pier 9 of Honolulu Harbor.

Wordless Wednesday


 
Hawaii (Big Island, I think)

This was the same island as last week's lava tube photo. We had a local guide who was passionate about his home. He had a minibus and picked people up outside the port with no need to book. We got about 2 hours more than agreed on and he refused to take any extra money for the time. We were there overnight so no worries about missing the ship! One of the best tours I have ever taken.

Wordless Wednesday - Flamingos.


 

I think this was Curacao, definitely one of the ABC islands during a Caribbean cruise a few years back.
