Rooms with views

So far, on our journey around the world, we've been fortunate with our blind choice of accomodation (knock on wood). Herewith, some photos of the often incredible vistas from our various homes away from home...

The rural countryside from the one-time honeymoon suite, Provence, France

Paris, France

New Town, Edinburgh, Scotland

Athens, Greece (yep, that's the Acropolis)

Over the harbor towards Kosta on the mainland, Spetses, Greece

From the foot of the Akronafplia fortress, Nafplio, Greece

Down onto the Midan Tahrir (Liberation Square), Cairo, Egypt

Across the Eastern Harbor towards Fort Qaitbey and the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria, Egypt

From our sleeper carriage from Cairo to Luxor

The rural area around the village of Gezira, across the Nile River from Luxor, Egypt

The Red Sea coast from Nuweiba, Egypt (actually, our room didn't have a window; this is from the breakfast patio. We know, we're only cheating ourselves.)

The town of Wadi Musa, outside Petra, Jordan

From a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum, Jordan
