Friday Fun: Can you guess where I am?

Monique vdB Community Manager Sep 25, 2020

For today's Friday Fun, inspired by Katie from Air B&B, we are doing a treasure hunt!

Below is a cropped photo of a famous location somewhere in the world. Can you guess where it is?

Screen Shot 2020-09-25 at 10.37.22 AM.png

The person who guesses right gets to go next, so get your photos ready. 

Thanks to @Laura for the game idea!

I was going to say the same thing, in the limited world traveling I have done that is one place I have actually visited.

This is also my guess!

Trevi fountain! Love this game. It reminds me of one I played during a virtual happy hour where they show a google maps view and you guess where in the world it is. 

Here's the link in case anyone needs a new virtual happy hour game! https://www.geoguessr.com/

That's the Bellagio in Vegas, isn't it? I was supposed to stay there for Summit in March; it would have been my first trip to Vegas :(

@Esther Strom you nailed that one!  That was from the 2019 Summit (as I said I don't get out much).

Feel free to post the next one!

I've never been to Barcelona, but one of my favourite songs, Maçã, which means "Apple" in Portuguese, was recorded at Park Guell by Djavan, who is also one of my favourite songwriters and musician. As soon as I saw this picture, I related it to the video.

Correct. La Jolla in San Diego. Stunning place and I’m glad the there is no such thing as “digital smell”.

It looks like you’re the next one.

Yes indeed!

Must admit the works of Charles Dodgson are a favourite of mine, so I stumble into things like this more than most.  That sculpture was not there last time I visited NY, but it's on the list for 2023.

This one might be a challenge - where is "The house that Jack built"?

thtjb1.jpegthtjb2.jpeg

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ - I feel like this is somewhere in England (or the UK if I'm wrong), but I really don't know where!

 

@Monique vdB - I love this game!!

Maybe Cherrington in Shropshire England? Just a guess based on my google investigation on the origins of the children’s rhyme.

Monique vdB Community Manager Sep 28, 2020

This is hard to Google! @Ivan Lima does your Google lens work on this one?

Otherwise we might need another clue @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_

I tried Google Lens on this and got photos of churches (the top photo) and coins (the bottom photo). Not at all helpful! Definitely need a clue, @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_

Like Monique vdB likes this

It is very very obscure, I admit, but that's the challenge, right?

The building is flanked by a couple of old coaching inns, one late 16th century and a larger one built in in the mid-1600's by a supporter of Sir Francis Drake and still carrying the name of "The (Golden) Hind".  The House that Jack built is, obviously, 250 years younger.

Jack Community Leader Sep 28, 2020

Well that hint did the trick! Wellingborough, England at 37 Sheep St. I think I got a full mani-pedi done there once. 😉

Good question, @Monique vdB. I was not even bothered to try Google Lens for this one because I figured it would be a "google-proof" type of challenge.

Now, assuming I am correct (Nic?) I’m going to nominate @Laura since I have already posted.

Going back to my picture - yes @Jack  it's Wellingborough.  5 minutes walk from my house.  I use it as an example of how people fail to look up - most of the locals have no idea it's there, I noticed it the day I moved here.

@Angela Newton yes the original post was the Trevi Fountain! Esther's gonna try and stump us next. 

(Original one was unfair since it wasn't a permanent part of the location; if anyone saw it before I changed it, it was a yarn-bombed window at Blarney Castle.)

Esther Strom Community Leader Oct 06, 2020

You're too fast, @Jack ! I changed it; I figured it wasn't fair since the photo was one I took last year and might not have been part of the site for more than a week.

Jack Community Leader Oct 06, 2020

that was my second guess!

maybe Epcot but there are a number of geo-domes around so...

Monique vdB Community Manager Oct 06, 2020

My guess is Epcot too!

Esther Strom Community Leader Oct 07, 2020

I'm really bad at this! Yes, it's Epcot. @Jack you're up.

Jack Community Leader Oct 07, 2020

Ok so hopefully this is hard but someone can still figure it out. I visited here during a business trip many years ago and hope to return. If no one gets it within a couple days I can expose a bit more of the photo.

I do enjoy a Guinness Jack, yes.

@Esther Strom I was there last year (early summer) too - it had been about 12 years since my previous visit, but the tour was as good as ever

I think my photo will be far too easy - but it's very special to me as it was the first time my fianceé and I left our home continent together.  I've cropped to make it a bit harder but I'm sure someone will be getting it very quickly!

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ you're up again! 

WhatsApp Image 2020-10-08 at 20.58.26.jpeg

 

So, as @Monique vdB says I get another go, here's one from a holiday (yes, please do ignore Chrissy's hair at the left, the other photos from this walk were fuzzier, less green or had even more of my family in them). 

I thought a landscape would be a change from the buildings we've seen so far.  But I know that landscapes are much harder to place, especially when there is nothing peculiarly distinctive in them, like a unique building.  So a small clue is that if you can work out what nuclear reactors are in the photo, we're around 20 miles from them...

Oh, and I'm looking for the name of the hill / park we're in before I'll admit you've found us.

Jack Community Leader Oct 10, 2020

I’m thinking this is Collard Hill. I saw a BBC bit on the blue butterfly 🦋 several years back on BBC and this looks like that area.

I like the thinking, I was ambling around there a few years back (I'm one of those people who bought a lifetime National Trust membership and probably used it so much, I made it worth it within half a decade)  

But no, Street doesn't have that view of the Atlantic or that many nukes.

It was Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Trevi from Rome, Italy
