Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Roads


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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the Lincoln Tunnel, as we sped our way out of the city. No stopping allowed of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

  1. I like the Yellowstone pic the best. I can’t believe I haven’t been there yet. It’s on the list for one of my vacation spots ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I also don’t enjoy the Lincoln Tunnel. My son once had a slight altercation in there, with a truck pushing his sports car along. The driver claims he didn’t see him. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    • Yes, he was fine, and the truck driver didn’t even notice until the traffic police stopped him at the other end. My son had phoned ahead to report the incident. It did make quite a mess of the trunk of his nice black BMW. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  2. You have been travelling some roads … magical gallery – all kind of roads.
    My personal choice have to be the tunnel. Have a great weekend now.

  3. Quite a mileage you’ve got here Sylvia ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to take that road through Yellowstone NP ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Wow, you’ve got the roads covered! All types, places, means of travel, and all populations! I wouldn’t snooze either on some of those roads. I’d be too scared! Great post, Sylvia ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Such a great post AD thanks for taking us down /up all those roads. I also never close my eyes on a road trip in case I miss something.

  6. My word, you really have got around this little planet of ours. That Machu Picchu road looks absolutely terrifying. It’s so interesting to see the differences. Great choices and great photographs.

  7. You have seen many roads. My scariest for crossing was one in beijing, bicycle lanes, on and off ramps for the elevated road (double lane in either side) then four lanes in either direction. If you werent among the first to step off tge sidewalk you only made it to tge centre island in one traffic light change

  8. You must be the only person I am aware of who can genuinely say, “Been there, done that, got the T-shirt,.”
    Lennon and McCartney unconsciously had you in mind, AD, when they wrote The Long and Winding Road.
    Super post.

  9. I never go to sleep on a journey even if it’s one I’ve taken a hundred times, there is just too much to see and not enough daylight! Loving your roads Sylvia ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Many roads traveled AD – I think it must take you a while to get through all your pics!!
    Now that you’ve shown me the road to my dream, I wonder if I will manage it without getting scared!!
