St Petersburg, Russia the first photo was a guess the second saint issac cathedral. I think a similar photo was posted on this thread or on this site. I remember seeing it and thinking I would like to see this.

Correct re the second. What's in the first photo? Another one of St Isaac's dome:

I figured North Africa, but unfortunately a gap in my experience. So scanned your trip reports for clues ...

Re reading my response, I was pretty sure your image at #1801 was in Russia based on the language but had no idea of the location. Photo #1802, I have never been there but have seen similar photos when researching things like what to see in Russia and then narrowing down further and was pretty confident in the location (city) it is on the list but we have not got there yet. As you have a bit of a cryptic clue between your posts and a bit of goggle searching (what to see in...) I would guess that that photo #1801 is the burial place of Tchaikovsky.

Oh, clever ....yes, Tchaikovsky at the Tikhvin cemetery, the necropolis of artists.

Russian cemeteries are fabulous. The following are in the Novodevichy cemetery in Moscow

This is the grave of a famous stage artist - a Chaplin type figure, I gather

Understand but I didn't have the winter pic and it's pretty well buried. If people want to Google, then - meh.

The beach is in Nth America.
don't recognise the beach, but given the snow I guess maybe one of the Great Lakes?

staying with coastal theme, here is one I took a number of years back.
