    Yes, I love that region of the world as well. The Mediterranean was always where I wanted to go as a kid (the idea of Greece fascinated me, so my first solo trip was to go to Greece, and I wasn't disappointed). I've been to Spain and Italy too...those southern European spots tug me.

    Turkey is it's own world though - the clash of the east and the west. Plus a lot of nature thrown in too. I can't wait. :-) The only reason I'm 'crossing my fingers' is the political situation to the east; I think it would be unlikely that I wouldn't be able to go, but I'll just have to see. At least I have trip insurance.

    I'd love to learn photography. But I'm too shy to pick up a camera and take photographs. I don't know why, though.

    You have no idea how envious I am of you. I read travel books all the time. Spain looks awesome too. Have you been to Morocco? I heard it was a must-see.

    Turkey has some of the most unspoiled ancient Greco-Roman ruins on the planet. But you're right. The region has destabilized even more lately. Their government IS trying to bring in tourism, so I don't believe it will be too long a wait for you if you do have to postpone.

    I haven't been to Morocco, but yes, parts of it would be really interesting. I DID make it to Gibraltar, though, so I SAW Morocco. And since I stuck to strictly the Andalucia portion of Spain, I did experience a bit of the arabic/moor influence in a few of those cities I visited.

    I can refer you to a traveling forum if you ever want to dig into travel topics/research, although it's much more geared towards 'independent travelers'. :-)

    I'm flying off to L.A. tonight for a little vacation! [by the way, my ability to travel does come with a price...a cubicle job. So, I do pay my dues, and occasionally I question the price. :-) ]

    Other than my long list of favorite nature/landscape photographers, one of my favorite photographers is Garry Winogrand. I think he was likely an ESTP. Edit: When he died, he left behind thousands of rolls of undeveloped film and untitled images.

    On one of my rare street photography excursions in the large city I live in, I borrowed a lot from his work when I snapped a photo of the guy who appeared to have been approaching me aggressively in an attempt to steal my camera. I politely thanked this gentleman for the unsurpassed photographic opportunity. (It's good to have a friend watching your back when engrossed in your camera's viewfinder doing street photography! )

    Would you be inclined to post maybe 5 of your all-time favorite nature/landscape photographers???

    I myself don't follow the 'experts' in photography and am a total amateur and don't know any of the techie stuff... ...but would be interested to get a short list so I can look into them next time I go to a library.....

    Here are some of my favorite photos. All were taken with a point and shoot, so the quality may not be as good as it can be, but I liked the subjects. I would just link, but the photo site I use went out of business and I haven't gotten them all up online somewhere else yet.

    i like taking pictures, but by no means does that make me a photographer. im just not very artistic... i do love to look at good photography, either way.

    I've been doing photography for about 12 years now. Most of my work was done on 35mm and I've been using a little digital since '01 or so. I want to get a sweet digital SLR, maybe a Rebel since I have a Rebel 35mm and the lenses are somewhat interchangeable.

    just throw it against the wall and see what sticks.
