Every Tuesday Jonathan Epstein, aka @EpsteinTravels, announces the theme for #FriFotos - a weekly forum on Twitter where people share photos that match the theme. This week the theme is 'Views'. To say I've enjoyed looking over some of the photos I've been lucky enough to take over the years is an understatement.
Hout Bay, Cape Town
If you go to Cape Town don't leave without doing the Chapman's Peak Drive - this is why.
Sunset over the River Arno, Florence
There are many great places to take in a sunset in Europe, but Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, is by far one of the best.
The Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Want to enjoy this view one day? Then do Bridge Climb Sydney in Australia's best-known city.
One of the top 10 views in the world - Cerra Campanario near Bariloche, Argentina
This view, which was voted one of the top 10 views in the world by National Geographic, is stunning. You'll find it at Cerra Campanario near Bariloche in Argentina.
Villefranche-sur-mer, Cote d'Azure, France
This is why people say the South of France is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Dubrovnik - one of Europe's most beautiful old towns
Dubrovnink's answer to the Eiffel Tower are the walls of its old town. Almost everybody who visits walks them, all taking in this view of the red roofs and Lokrum Island along the way.
The Great Wall of China
I didn't realise how close the Great Wall of China was to Beijing before I visited. So I obviously had to visit when I was there. It is a day I won't forget in a hurry.
En route to Machu Picchu
For three days I went on a trek in Pretu from Cusco to Macchu Picchu. Day 2 of a 3-day trek was from a town called Santa Teresa to Aguas Calientes, the closest town to one of the world's most sacred sites. It was a long trek, but since this was the view most of the way, I didn't mind too much...
The Alhambra, Granada
Mirador de San Nicolas - that's the name of the lookout to enjoy this view of the Alhambra in Granada.
San Franisco and the Golden Gate Bridge
Need I say more?
Maybe not the view you were thinking I was going to post - instead this is the view looking back to St Kevin's Tower in Glendalough. Even when the skies are grey, Ireland is stunning.
What's your favourite view?
