It was fun watching everyone’s “Dance/Dancing” photos.

This week’s theme (Week of March 19, 2017) is: Old

There is also a Photo Hunt 2017 category on the Media Gallery in case you want to put your photos in the media gallery first and then insert from there using the camera icon above the text box, into your post.

Future Themes (In case you want to start hunting for your photos):

Photo Hunt No. 4 (Week March 24) – Window
Photo Hunt No. 5 (Week March 26) - Quiet

Dating back to the 13th Century, the Eilean Donan Castle is very old and it is one of the most visited attractions in the Scottish Highlands. It is located on its own little island overlooking the Isle of Sky at a point where three great sea lochs meet. It was one of my must sees when I visited Scotland in 2009. It has been used in such films as the Highlander (1986) and James Bond-The World is Not Enough (1999). If you find yourself visiting Scotland, I would definitely put the Eilean Donan Castle on your must see list.

In my travels, I have been lucky enough to see some of the oldest manmade structures in the world, but nothing was like having a cigarette with this gentleman in a small mountain village on Kythnos, Greece. He was fussing because he did not have a match and his son standing next to him evidently would not get one for him. He saw me smoking and signaled me to come over. I was able to figure out from his son that he had celebrated his 100th birthday years ago.

(BTW – as of April 1st I quit smoking 11 years ago… but who is counting.) :D

This tunnel along the original Via Flaminia (which goes from Rome to Fano on the Adriatic Sea) was hand-chiseled out by Roman soldiers and slaves over 2,000 years ago. It is located in the Gola di Furlo / Furlo Gorge in Le Marche, Italy. Second photo shows the original chiseling marks inside the tunnel which are still visible today. Third photo is of the beautiful Furlo Gorge itself. These photos were taken in 2011 when you could still drive the road through the tunnel. Unfortunately, in 2015 a landslide blocked the road and now you can only walk in to see the tunnel. Pauline has posted information and photos about a day trip to Furlo Gorge here on Slow Europe.
