A collection of roads from around the world.
Aerial shot of two roads running through unusual land forms in Iceland.Road work on a narrow road high in the mountains of Sapa, Vietnam. The bus we were in had to pass the truck on the cliff side. The entire bus held their breath and we made it!Moki Dugway (aka Utah 261), a gravel road with dozens of terrifying hairpin turns, none photographed as I couldn’t see the next turn until we were in it.“The Irish drive like maniacs down these really narrow roads….”; some advice for driving the narrow roads and hedgerows of Ireland.
Heading down the road to Rouen (France).Some rules of the road when travelling in India: one tanker truck politely drives over on to the dusty verge to allow a more hazardous tanker truck to pass.
Driving a one-hamster-powered car through the back roads of northern Spain. We called our little rental car “The ‘amster”, after Miguel’s pet rat in Faulty Towers but looking at this dashboard maybe we should have named it “Darth Vader”!That is a full-size bus on one of these narrow twisting roads in the High Puna of Argentina that lead up into the Andes. It can get really cold up at this altitude so the bus stops had wood stoves in them so people could keep warm while waiting. Stand-off with a bus on the narrow roads of Wales. Guess who had to back up to the nearest ‘passing place’?Vehicles were far and few in Myanmar, where every vehicle was treated as if precious. This was from our Inle Lake bicycle trip; the only Asian country where I didn’t fear for my life when on the road. Mexico City roads used to be the most congested and polluted in the world. They’ve done a lot of work to reduce the congestion and we had a lot of blue sky photos – something that never happened in the past.Rough washboard road with lots of cattle guards to further rattle your brains, up in the hills above Merritt, Canada. Around the Tourist office the story goes that the tourists sometimes return the maps that they have purchased because they’re aren’t enough roads on them. But I bet even this one is marked – there just aren’t a lot of roads in the province compared to the rest of the world!More of Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge: Road.
