Today’s travel pictures are thematic, hills and mountains from a few countries.

I start with a long ago picture from Bantry Bay in Ireland where I spent a blissful holiday with friends in 1978. Then we have the desert in Jordan and two from Kazakhstan, both taken in 2014.

Then there are two from Azerbaijan, in 2015, Mongolia in 2012, Armenia in 2016 and Meghalaya in 2014 again. Then we have two from Sikkim and Angola and Bolivia, one from Tripua and to conclude one from our own beautiful Aluwihare.
