Why have I never heard of Quedlinburg before? This place is gorgeous!

The whole of the old town looks like this photo - more than 1300 houses built over eight centuries in the style of the Middle Ages.

The main sites in town are the central market square and the Church of St Servatius which had the tomb of the first German king. But I think just wandering the side streets is the best way to explore. It feels like a movie set and I could've taken hundreds of photos of all the buildings!

Anyway, other than being a fantastic surprise of a place, Quedlinburg is also World Heritage Site number 12 of my challenge with +DB Bahn and the +German National Tourist Board.

What a cool photo!
The view from the top of Ait Ben Haddou in Morocco.

The small community was part of the trading route between ancient Sudan and Marrakech. The people who lived here had to balance the appearance of openness for those passing by for commerce with a natural instinct for self-preservation from those who planned to take control and stay longer.

Ait-Ben-Haddou today looks easily sackable but, in fact, it was built to be defended. The outside walls of mud and clay are the initial protection for the town which is built onto the side of a hill. The buildings are packed tight with narrow pathways that wind around each other and unexpectedly turn into steep staircases up to another level of construction. At the very top is a fortress that the residents can retreat to as a last line of defence.

This is a shot from Homebush Bay in Sydney of the WW2 shipwreck SS Aryfield. The SS Ayrfield (originally launched as SS Corrimal) was a steel-hulled, single screw, steam collier of 1140 tonnes and 79.1m in length. It was purchased by the Commonwealth Government of Australia and used to transport supplies to American troops stationed in the Pacific region during WWII.
