Photos From Each Country



Country 13 of 198: Which country? #picture198countries

For the next 7 months or so I will post a photo from a new country every day. To be the first to see them, please follow me on Instagram (where I am @Garfors). I will not tell you which country they are from, that is up to you to guess, sometimes a little hint will be added. And please feel free to share your own photos from that particular country too, using #picture198countries. I would love to see many more shots than the 198 I will contribute with.



You guess by adding a comment to the photo via Instagram. The first 21 to correctly guess the right country 10 times will get a free copy of my book “198: How I Ran Out of Countries*” in the mail (or electronically, if you prefer). Or you can find out where to buy it here.

I will reveal which country each and every photo is from, a day after it has been posted. Most photos have been snapped by myself, I will otherwise credit the photographer. And I might appear in some of them, too.

And do not forget to enter yourself or others into The Country Challenge.

Please check instagram.com/garfors for your daily photo fix, or see one photo from every country here.
