Where in the World (250)
This the 250th edition of “Where in the World…” and as promised there will be a small prize available. However more of that later on.
As I often discover when I think somewhere is going to be a little more challenging to identify I receive a good few correct answers. Last week was no exception as some had visited the city and one regular reader, now residing in London, used to live there. A certain romantic couple, had they been around today, would no doubt have recognized the city as the setting for their ill-fated love affair. In fact many visitors to the city come specifically to see what has become known as Juliet’s balcony. However the twisted photograph shows the skyline and the Ponte Pietra Bridge and not the balcony. The city is Verona in Italy and is where William Shakespeare set his romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet.
This week the distorted photograph is one of the iconic views of the city to be identified. There are plenty of clues as to the cities identity so if you don’t get it from one clue there will be another. Scroll down the page for the distorted image. Good luck.
As promised there will be a small prize for this week’s “Where in the World…”. The prize is a French Press Travel Cup from Bodum. I use one frequently and will be reviewing it later this month. It is more than a travel mug as you can make your coffee ‘on-the-go’ using the French press lid. Then, with the lid in place, you can drink it with out getting a mouthful of grounds. All you need is the ground coffee and a supply of boiling water. Makes a change from the usual instant offering in most hotel bedrooms and it keeps it hot. Of course if you do not like coffee you can use the standard lid with any hot drink.
I have one of these as a prize for the first correct answer drawn at random after the close of the competition on Wednesday 28 June 2017 at 10:00pm [BST]. So identify the city and be in with a chance of winning. If you cannot identify the city or you can’t wait to win then click on the image (affiliate link) and you will be taken to Amazon.co.uk where you can buy one.
