Here’s something fun to kick off your weekend. It’s a travel-themed picture puzzle. You just have to tie the photos together to make words. For example, a photo of an eye, combined with a photo of a full glass of water would be eye + full = Eiffel. Get it? (For another example, check out our last puzzle.)

This week’s puzzle is two words and represents a famous attraction.

Once you think you know the answer, post it below. You have until Monday, July 15, at 11:59 p.m. ET to post your response. We’ll keep all comments private until then. On Tuesday morning we’ll choose one winner at random to receive an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. Note: Although all are welcome to play, we can only ship prizes to the Continental U.S.

Editor’s Note: This contest has ended. The winner is Eileen Sawtelle, who correctly guessed that the pictogram spelled “Neuschwanstein Castle.” Eileen has won an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. Congratulations! Stay tuned for further opportunities to win.

    Hey Sarah,

    Thank you for the reply! The reason I asked is because I could actually see Nancy’s post, my posts and yours. No worries, I can’t see the answers, except mine!
