Travel Photo Thursday — November 7, 2013 — My Travels During the Past 150 Posts

Posted by on Nov 7, 2013 in Budapest, Czech - Prague, Destinations, Hungary, Korea, Nova Scotia, Travel Photo Thursday | 28 comments

Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday, and a special week it is! This is our 150th Travel Photo Thursday…(drum roll please)!! Hard to believe that this little link-up started back in December, 2009 on the first anniversary of Budget Travelers Sandbox. My first post is here.  The group has been pretty fluid, with people coming and going. We usually have between 20 and 30 photographers linking every week. Just as important, most of us comment and share each others weekly posts. Lovely friendships have formed. Two of our linkers have been with us from the very beginning. I could tell who they are, but let’s have some fun. Leave your guess in the comments, and try not to peek!

A big THANK YOU  to contributors, present and past,  to our weekly virtual photo journey. Without all of YOU this weekly meet-up would never have become such a great success. VIRTUAL HUGS TO ONE AND ALL!!

I’ve covered more than a few miles since our first Travel Photo Thursday. My camera has clicked in Canada, the U.S.A., Thailand, Singapore, Bali, Japan, China, Taiwan, Czech, Spain, Hungary since 2009. Of course, how can I forget my home way from home…KOREA.

To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog.

Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

The Twitter hash tag for Travel Photo Thursday is #TPThursday.

My first Travel Photo Thursday shot…Dragon’s Head at the Nun’s Temple in Daejeon.

Budapest’s Chain Bridge was mesmerizing…




As was the The Budapest Sunset… (Loved the orange sky!)




There was Prague and this stunning shot of the Tyne Church.




The Peggy’s Cove fishing nets kept me busy trying for that perfect shot.

The Nova Scotia daisies made me smile.

Beautiful Chiang Mai has seen a lot of me over the years.

This post would not be complete without Korea, where the years seem to have slipped away 🙂 The Seoul Lantern Festival, one of my favorites…

  1. congratulations on the 150 posts – virtual travel at it’s best!

    • Thanks, Jill! It’s wonderful to have you as a contributor!

  2. Congratulations on a great milestone, Nancie! I have loved virtually traveling with you for the almost two years I have joined your link-up. What a great set of travel photos and a trip down memory lane. Thank you for hosting this every week. Without you, I wouldn\’t have formed some of the great friendships throughout the blogosphere I now have. I love how everyone is so supportive in your link-up. This link-up has also been such a great inspiration. Virtual hug across the ocean to you too.

  3. 150 TPT posts is quite an accomplishment. I have truly appreciated the opportunity to share my work, learn about other places, and most of all, form virtual relationships with other bloggers. You photos are stunning as always. I like the Budapest sunset silhouette and the way you’ve framed the Chiang Mai temple and the Prague Church. My hubby is in Hungary right now, so he may be seeing that chain bridge himself this week.

  4. Hi Nancie, Happy 150th!!! Wow, that’s awesome in blog age! Congratulations! And thank you so much for creating this great forum where I’ve got to know a lot of wonderful, quality bloggers and where I get to share my travel experiences. And thank you for sharing your life in Korea and travels with us. I hope to meet you and all these amazing bloggers someday in person.
    Okay, my guess for the two veteran “Travel Photo Thursday” linkers are Jackie of TravelnWrite and Dick from Tales Told from the Road.

  5. Nancie, (I think my first comment didn’t make it, so. . .) Congrats on the milestone and thank you so much for creating such a great community. I honestly look forward to Thursdays as it is my time to catch up with friends and their travels. After one becomes a regular contributor here, you do become friends even though thousands of miles separate us all. Look forward to celebrating many more milestones with you and my fellow TPT bloggers! And look forward to meeting many of these folks in person one day as well as seeing you again! My best ~ J. xo

  6. Wow! 150 Travel Photo Thursdays! Congratulations, Nancie and thanks for hosting this every week. Proud to be a long time contributor, although I wasn’t one of the first! I’m going to guess that Muza-chan was one of the original posters.

    • Indeed, I participated on the first edition! (^_^)

    • Hi Cathy! Guess what? The honor of being an original poster goes to Lili (Muza-Chan) and YOU! YOU were the final contributor the first week. So glad that you both stuck around 🙂

      • Oh my gosh — I didn’t realize I was here for the first week. Just looked it up and it was my photo of the Chicago police horse wearing a Santa hat. How honored I am to be in the company of Lili as original contributors!

  7. 150? Congratulations, Nancie! You and your camera have been quite busy piling up miles of smiles and photos along the way. This is surely a lovely way to celebrate.
    I’m going to guess that Jackie Smith was one? Maybe Leigh the other? I trying to think who else was here when I started – Dick, Lili, Cathy? Would love to know!

    Congrats again!

  8. Congratulations Nancie!
    150 weeks… amazing how time passed by…
    Thank you for hosting this weekly virtual party – I was one of the first participants and I enjoyed it each and every week!

  9. I love how you frame landmarks, making your pictures absolutely stunning.

    I would say my favorite is the first colorful dragon, but you have posted that one before ;D soooo this time I’m between the Budapest sunset and the Prague church… Both incredible, yet so different!

  10. PS: congratulations on 150 weeks! Crazy how fast time goes by…

  11. All nice shots. The one from Prague is my favorite.

    • Thank you, Dick! That is definitely one of my favorite Prague shots.

  12. Congratulations Nancie! That’s an awesome achievement! I hope we shall soon be celebrating the 500th and more!!! For me the most intriguing shot (although it was hard to choose) is of the Seoul lantern festival, just because of the mystery and the colours.

    • Hi Johanna! Thank you for the kind words. This weekly event really is a lot of fun. Couldn’t do it without everyone contributing 🙂

  13. Great job Nancie and quite an accomplishment. You are so reliable for putting up posts. I’m thinking the two are Muza-chan and TravelnWrite. Love the chain bridge and the Prague photo. Just read that it was Cathy – and I wouldn’t have guessed that.

    • Hi Leigh. When I went looking, I had in my mind that it was Cathy, Muza-Chan, and yourself. I’m pretty sure you came on board fairly soon after we started. One of these days, when I get some time, I’ll have to have look!

  14. Congratulations on 150! That’s an impressive streak.

  15. What an Incredible set of photographs over the last 150 posts. I cant wait to see the next 150! I love the europe photos as it reminds me of a trip through eastern europe a few years back.

  16. I am glad I found this post. That first photo was a beauty to kick off the link-up, and the rest are just as good. Photos are such a good reminder of experiences. I am always being reminded of this when I look through our own photos. I am sure I would forget half without the photographic evidence.

    • Hi Jan! Glad you enjoyed the post. Yes, photos definitely help to keep them memories alive.
