Friday Photo – The House Of Blackheads, Riga

I am on my second visit to Latvia’s capital. This building is named after the African missionary (St Mauritius) who refused German orders to execute locals who refused to convert from paganism to Christianity. This saw him beheaded himself, hence the building name.

We visited Iceland in January 2015 for my birthday. What a stunningly beautiful country.

Friday Photo – Wawel Castle, Krakow

The World Heritage site castle was built in the 13th & 14th Centuries in Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance & Baroque styles, initiated by King Casimir III The Great. The views from the top are wonderful, whilst visits to the State Rooms, Armory and the Cathedral situated within the fortification walls are fascinating.

Friday Photo – Salzburg, Austria

A week ago I was in wonderful Salzburg for some pre-Christmas cheer. The picture shows the Salzach River that bisects the city and the pedestrian Makartsteg bridge, with the cathedral spires and Arenberg Castle in the background.

Friday Photos – Iguazú Falls, Brazil

One year ago today Mrs Wilbur and I visited the Iguazú Falls in Brazil. The highlight is known as the Devil’s Throat, a vast cascade of turbulent water. I vividly remember getting as close as possible and ending up soaked to the skin from the spray. Exhilarating! The Devil’s Throat, Iguazu Falls, Brazil
