By the lighthouse on Lac Leman (more commonly known as Lake Geneva). This was a great vantage point from which to watch the paddle steamers go past on their voyages through the lake.

I just returned home from a trip to Europe that included six wonderful days in Geneva, Switzerland. This was my first visit to this city and the country and I really loved it. The city and the lake, and of course the surrounding French mountains, were beautiful. Geneva was so relaxing and still retains its traditional appearance. Modernity did not seem to have encroached too much. My family and I made good use of the buses, trams and water taxis, which are all free for tourists. We visited the United Nations building and took a cruise on the lake, among other things. I hope to return one day.

Here's one of the views from the observation floor of the San Jacinto battlefield monument. It shows the World War I era battleship, the USS Texas, which is permanently berthed next to the Houston Ship Channel.

While visiting Houston recently I took some time out from our busy schedule to visit the San Jacinto monument and battlefield site, located on the eastern side of Houston. This is one of the most interesting historical sites in the Houston area, and probably in Texas as a whole. We ate lunch at the Monument Inn Restaurant, which is located just outside the battlefield site park, and next to the Lynchburg Ferry landing site.

This is Arad fort in the city of Muharraq, Bahrain, which was the capital of the island nation until 1923. The fort occupies a strategic location overlooking a coastal area. Today, the modern skyscrapers of south Manama can be viewed from its ramparts. The fort was built in the 1500s in traditional Islamic style. I visited this fort with my wife and children yesterday during a two-day trip to Bahrain. Located close to the International Airport, the fort is quite well preserved; it is also well sign-posted and easy to find. Some preservation work was been carried out during our visit.

The North Wales coast has some of the best preserved castles in the United Kingdom. Most of the coastal castles were built by the English to keep the Welsh in check, but the Welsh seem to have claimed them for their own. This is the large and impressive-looking castle at the entrance to the town of Conwy, the next town along the coast west of Llandudno, which I visited in August, 2014.

The highway toward Juffair district, Manama, Bahrain. This area is close to the Bahrain National Museum and Al Fateh Grand Mosque. This is a very nice area of Bahrain, where I stay whenever I visit the island.

This diesel train goes to the top of Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales. The railway also runs steam trains.

I visited Caernarfon castle during my recent trip to North Wales in August 2014. The castle is situated next to the Menai Strait across from the Isle of Anglesey. This impressive castle was built by King Edward I in the 13th century.
