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.

That Machu Picchu Road does look pretty hair-raising. I love the Hong Kong and Xian roads. 🙂
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 🙂
I think I’ve seen more of America than many Americans. 🙂
Most definitely more than this one that’s for sure. But I think I got California covered.
I recognized the Lincoln Tunnel immediately. I never liked traveling through it. The thought of it being underwater always frightened me. It was nice to see it again, though. Nice shots of roads.
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. 😯
OUCH … the thought of being confined in there has always given me a feeling of claustrophobia.
I hope is is well? An adventure I wouldn’t want to have again. ~~~~ : – O
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. 😦
You’ve had some times AD ! What a way to approach M Picchu 😮
Yes, I have had some great times, Poppy. 🙂
That first one is about enough to make me car sick 🙂
wow Sylvia you’ve traveled to many exciting places. Great entry 😀
Thanks, Rosie. I sometimes can hardly believe all the places I’ve been to. 🙂
Only one advice for the tunnel photo … crop the photo so the view of your car don’t get in the way.
I left the photo as it was, to give a sense of being in the car with me. 🙂
Okay … that is also a way to see it, may be the only way *smile
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.
Thanks so much, Viveka. 🙂
Quite a mileage you’ve got here Sylvia 🙂 I would love to take that road through Yellowstone NP 🙂
Thanks, Paula. Yes, Yellowstone was a magical place to visit. 🙂
That road up to Machu Picchu is terrifying (I’m not a great passenger at the best of times!) 😉
You and me both, Dianne. 🙂 My heart in my mouth is not one of my favourite sensations. 🙂
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 🙂
Thanks so much, Marsha. 🙂
Although the competition was tough, the first one is my favorite!
Thanks, Frank. It was certainly quite a breathtaking ride, both up and down.
Great diversity of “roads”, Sylvia. Love them all but especially the civilized one of Times Square 😉
Thanks, Tahira. Yes, Times Square is quite an experience. 🙂
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.
Thanks, Optie. es, I need to keep my eyes open, especially as I drive from the passenger seat. 😀
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.
Thanks so much, Susan. I’m also amazed at all the places I’ve been too. 🙂
Lovely post once again! Love all the pictures and the adventures.
Take care and regards
Thanks, Gail. So nice to see you here again. Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂
Times Square is amazing!
Yes it is, Tandy. Always a great vibe there. 🙂
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
Yes, I remember Beijing too, but the scariest place ever has to be Cairo. 😯
I haven’t been there yet
You got Roads all day long! Great shots
Hahaha….yes I do. 🙂
I knew this would be good! Excellent adventure, ad.
Thanks so much, Gemma.
These are very interesting places. Some roads look a bit exciting to be on.
Thanks for your comment. Yes, some of those roads were a bit too exciting. 🙂
fabulous variety of roads ad, love those rough country roads, and the scenes in hong kong and xian 🙂
Thanks so much, Christine. 🙂
Love the picture of the tunnel! 😉
Thanks, TA. I don’t really enjoy riding through tunnels.
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.
Thanks, Ark. I stopped collecting ‘been to’ T-shirts a long time ago. 🙂
I prefer the wide open spaces ones – even when scary!
Me too, Col. 🙂
A fine collection Sylvia. The first road looks fun! 🙂
Thanks, Adrian. Yes, you could say that. 🙂
Excellent series of photos Sylvia!
Thanks for the Lincoln Tunnel pic, that’s the only way I ever plan to see that thing again.
Thanks, Phil. So, I gather the Lincoln Tunnel was a part of your daily torture whilst living up north. 🙂
Even with traffic your blog is a lot more peaceful than mine right now 🙂
That’s very true, footsy. I don’t envy you. 🙂
Your first road is utterly amazing. I’d love to be on it….but with no other traffic!!
Thanks, Cee. 🙂
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 🙂
Thanks, Gilly. I agree with you. 🙂
Great variety of roads.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks, Francine. 🙂

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!!
I’m sure you will, 68. You’ll be too excited to be scared. 🙂
