Cee’s roads challenge this week, had me searching through a few of my albums for something different. I’ve travelled many roads, in many countries, and I do try not to snooze, just in case I miss something.
This long, narrow and very winding road up to Machu Picchu really kept my heart in my mouth. Not a chance I was going to fall asleep on that coach, as I had to keep breathing in every time I saw another vehicle coming towards us down the hill.
This is the road through the town at the bottom of the hill, also very narrow.
A dusty, stony road through Bolivia, made for quite a bumpy ride.
Another sand road through a Bolivian town. Tarmac would be a real luxury.
Back to the USA, and a drive down the highway in Montana under clear blue May skies, was far less stressful. We could see Yellowstone in the distance.
As we travelled through Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming the weather became less Spring-like, and the road was quite slippery.
Back to civilisation, and Times Square is much more populated of course. You can hardly see the road for cars and people.
Here’s the Lincoln Tunnel, as we sped our way out of the city. No stopping allowed of course.
Hong Kong roads are also very busy, and quite hair-raising to cross.
In Xian, the roads were extremely congested, even though there weren’t many if any cars around.
Of course what ever road you may be travelling on, it’s always nice to ride in style, so from the ridiculous to the sublime. I was most impressed when our New York taxi arrived. I was expecting one of those yellow cabs.
