While Thanksgiving weekend is usually the busiest travel time of the year in the US, this year travelling is discouraged. So our focus this week is some virtual traveling! Share some images that were taken "far from home". Here are a few to get started,

1) The Sydney Harbor at Sunset - Australia

2) Sunset on the Yulong River - China

3) Pyramid and Camels - Egypt

Thanks for a fun Friday Focus Kyle, brings back great memories from BITD when traveling to climbs was my focus.

Masai Mara, Kenya

Khan Tengri, Tien Shan range, Kirghizistan

I was lucky to live in Germany for 7+ years working for the Department of Defense Schools, so the next shots were not actually far from home at that time, but now they are.

Eastern Czechoslovakia

Nuremberg, Germany (when I lived in Europe I had a thing for finding a high vantage point and shooting roofs)

Something old, something new.
Most of my foreign travel has been either thanks to Uncle Sam, work or church activity

1st up, Vietnam. 1969
Market scene contrasted with the girl in the traditional ao dai dress
The coastal city of Nha Trang
This is a scan of an 8x10 print cause I lost the negative:(
