Wow Zazz...what is it you do, that allows you to travel so much?
Must be some great experiences there.

Sadly, most of my world travel was back when I was a kid (and not near as extensive as yours...probably only about a third or (likely) less of the countries you've visited)...

I'd love to be able to go back and see them (and others) with my wife, and with a camera (you don't really care about that much as a kid)...

Petra in Jordan, Fulfilling a Indianna Jones role play

Walking the SIQ (the dried up river cavern multi colored rose sandstones) to get to the lost city is beyond amazing, truly astounding and breathtaking. And below doesn't show how big the Wadi RUm desert in Jordan, there are little dots which are people on top of the sand dune. This is where Lawrence of Arabia lived and Campaigned with the Bedouins against the Turks, and I camped with the direct descendants
They had great stories and showed me a carving in the rock Lawrence did.

Lebanon.

Such a gorgeous place.
Beirut is the Paris of the Middle East, and its on the Mediterranean, so even more of a bonus.
The bottom pic is from the green line, people were still living in these bombed out places, this photo was 2006.
Top two are Balbek, Its a headquarters of the Hezbollah ( who I found incredible welcoming and fed us ! ) a poppy growing region, not many tourists really visit Balbek, just scholars and intrepid travelers because of its regional ownership. Israel raised it to the ground a couple years back in the Dec war, but no the Roman site, set fire to the fields. It is my favorite classical ruined city. Scratched on the side of the Temple is "Mark Antony and Cleopatra were here!" lol well their version of that graffiti

IRELAND
The cliffs Of Mohair, apparently you cant walk them any more
that's a travesty, they are also the cliffs of insanity for any Princess Bride fans
I use to go down a lot when in Ireland and just stare out to sea.



Giants Causeway (Northern Ireland)
and Galway, I think this is the MOnty Python Castle where the French take over and hurl abuse at Arthur and his silly English KniGITS, but need a 2nd opinion

Britain.
Stonehenge, I tried very hard to drive my mini car in like Clark Griswald, but alas after his visit it is caged off



Then, A little cottage in the Grampians of Scotland that I figured I would be happy in one day, but no beach!


And doing the highland Fling, Or being flung by a highlander more to the point.

Syria, Damascus,
You can wander down the straight street which is mentioned in the bible by that annoying turncoat Paul ( I call him Saul, after all he tried to get in on the act that he had nothing to do with!) The ice cream and sweets in Syria are to die for, but its a bit of a weird place, wits a dry country so we bought beer from the lingerie shop

This mosque is the3 rd holiest in Islam ( think) and it holds the head of John the Baptist who is also a prophet in Islam.


The mosaics I wish I got a close up, they are beautiful, In Islam you can not depict man or god, so they are very nature stylistic.

EGYPT

Temple of ABU Simble, UNESCO moved it Up a mile when they created the Aswan Dam.
Built By Ramses, these statues are HUGE! He was a super ego maniac though, hard to get them that power crazy now. Middle is Temple of Karnak. Bottom is Hatscheputs temple, the fenale pharoah, and she rocked, oh yes she did my friends.

TURKEY, truly one of the most fun countries, and lovely.

First is Ephasus (where Mary was taken for retirement) next is Cappadoccia, where they lived subterranean. The second one I took because they are kinda funny shaped wouldn't you say?



Ballooning over this area, and a photo from the air.
They grow grape vines as ground creepers, not wire creepers, and it looks really pretty
