This was clearly a difficult challenge: Collevalenza is a small town in the Umbria region in Italy.
It is known trough The Sanctuary of Merciful Love, a Christian pilgrimage chapel, established in 1951.
Pope John Paul II made a pilgrimage to this place on 22 November 1981 on which occasion he raised the status of the church at Collevalenza to a Minor Basilica.

Yes, this one is hard. But what if I told you that there is a relation with Contest #221…
Legend has it that the remains of St James are buried in the Cathedral.
Those who did not loose their way
It is a long walk
Grande Terre is the main island of the French territory of New Caledonia.
Nouméa is the capital city of New Caledonia and is situated on this island.
As he writes:
“Noumea is easily the most beautiful city in the Pacific outside of New Zealand. It is almost like a city on the French Rivera which has been transported to the Pacific. Walking around Noumea and its several harbors was a great experience.”
