    Dettifoss the most powerful waterfall in Europe. I went there once and it was a bit frightening. Grey thunderous water that sounds like HRRGGRFRGGFRRG!![​IMG]

    Nice town you live in Vampyrian, looks like a fairytale town in happyvalley!
    Beautiful pics, I like forests and there aren't many here.
    Damnit so many places I want to go to. Life is short, money is scarce... :insertangrysmiley

    I'm planning on going to a fjord sailing trip from Bergen, Norway this summer( in a few weeks b.t.w.). Want to go to Sognfjorden, it cuts the land 200km. inwards.
    It has majestic mountains

    Slovenia is actually the third most forested country in Europe, after Finland and Sweden. A fact I'm very much proud of:D You and Alec have posted some lovely pictures aswell and yeah... so many places i'd like to see:D Life isn't really that short, you have plenty of time (unless you're terminally ill or something, in that case man, I'm sorry and good luck.) but MONEY, that's the problem:D

    It's no fair when you guys live in places that have actual scenery. I come from Denmark, we just have fields. :/

    I'm in Finland now, and I'm telling you; the scenery alone makes me contemplate it. This is such a beautiful country.

    Québec is very similar to Finland in many ways, landscapes being one of them :)

    The population is about the same. The climate makes our forest types very similar and the amazingly large quantity of lakes and rivers from the last glaciation sculpted both regions in a pretty similar fashion.

    Not to mention we're both ice-hockey nations, and the Montreal Canadian hockey team's Captain is Saku Koivu, a Finn :D :loco:

    p.s. I wish the Canadians to the north of Seattle would stop dumping their sewage into the Puget Sound. It's not healthy for the Orca population, among other things.

    don't believe me?

    Slovenia Commercial <- a lovely 'slovenia commercial', about 3mins long, features a lot of our country's beautiful landscapes. The captions and the slogan are quite stupid IMO, but the commercial itself is visually quite well done, professionally even.

    Oh my God! most of your pics are amazing, I wish I was able to see such vast landscapes when wolking out of my door (or town)...

    I live in Germany. My Hometown is Düsseldorf and my recent home is in Erkrath (where Gaunerin lives aswell ;)), so I'm just gonna show you pics of the 2 nearest region "Bergisches Land", so do not expect any pics of the Alps or the Blackwood Forest! ;)
