  • Swipe left to see a badly shot video collage of this gorgeous winding road that wraps around the side of a mountain and sometimes through it.
.
I was unsure about taking the road as I read it was only meant for experts behind the wheel in tiny cars. We had a tiny car but did we have an 'expert'? Regardless, ignored all the lessons I learnt from the @finaldestination6 movie franchise & it worked out great. One of the best.drives.ever.
.
The road led us to a 'secret' spot between the mountains (I'm sure the elves were in camo, ah #Legolas when will you seek me out?...sigh), a tiny town at the summit and a restaurant with the most amazing view of the lake. I bet on clear, sunny days it would have been way better than what we saw but we were still stoked and freezing thanks to strong winds. It's good my legs moonlight as cruiseship anchors, stood my ground I did. .
When did ignoring your good sense/people turn out to be a great idea?
.
Tip: Don't order french fries and sit outside when it's windy. 
Small car or bikes for this road and make sure you have a full tank of gas. .

  • The drive from the the Pacific coast to La Fortuna was seriously wild. After about 45 minutes of winding incline, we go around a turn and suddenly there is this wall of clouds that continued on for the rest of the ride. Had to pull over so many times to admire these cute little foggy mountain towns..

  • 🇬🇧 Toll roads in Spain. If you take them, you'll never find mountain tops like this. 😆⁣
⁣
The toll road system in Spain is relatively new and can be avoided because most toll roads will have a free road just next to it. To me saving 30 minutes is not a reason to pay roughy 1€ per 8 km. 🤷‍♀️ Petrol is cheaper in smaller towns than at a highway station, and 120km/h speed limit is the maximum on both toll and free roads.⁣
⁣
All things considered, there is no reason to take a toll road unless you are in a hurry and live in Barcelona but work in Valencia (why would you do that anyway?).⁣
⁣
Toll roads are designated with the word 'peaje' in a red circle sign. Other two words to learn are: autopista (a highway/motorway, usually newly built and a toll road) and autovía (usually an upgraded existing road and normally free).⁣
⁣
Avoiding toll roads has let me watch the sun set behind the mountains, see blooming almond trees, find wine routes, and talk to a cyclist who stopped me in the middle of nowhere to ask for a screwdriver to fix his bike. It took him 2 minutes and about 20 complex sentences in our conversation to realise that I'm actually not Spanish but I keep replying to his questions. #meninshock⁣

🇱🇻 Maksas ceļi Spānijā nekad jūs neaizvedīs uz šādām kalnu virsotnēm. Maksas ceļu sistēma te ir samērā jauna, bet, manuprāt, gluži lieka, jo katram maksas ceļam blakus iet bezmaksas ceļš. 🤷‍♀️⁣
⁣
Maksa ir aptuveni 1€ par 8 km, bet ieguvums, ja vien ikdienā nemērojat tālus posmus un nekur nesteidzaties, ir niecīgs. Degviela Spānijā ir lēta (ap 1.30€ litrā), un lētāka tā būs mazpilsētās, nevis maksas lielceļa tankštellēs.⁣
⁣
Maksas ceļus atzīmē ar sarkanbaltu ceļazīmi, kurā rakstīts 'peaje'. Autopista ir daudzjoslu šoseja, parasti maksas, bet autovía ir bezmaksas šoseja. Kartē maksas ceļu apzīmējumā vienmēr būs iekļauts P burts (AP-3, piemēram).⁣
⁣
Mēs vienmēr izvēlamies bezmaksas ceļus. Tie mums ir ļāvuši vērot saulrietus kalnos un ziedošu mandeļkoku laukus, kā arī nekurienes vidū satikt riteņbraucēju, kuram vajadzīgs skrūvgriezis ķēdes salabošanai. Pēc 2 min.visai tehniskas sarunas viņš attapās un izbrīnīts vaicāja, vai tiešām saprotu spāniski. #vīrietisšokā

  • We left Lake Bafa and cycled through Turkish hills filled with the smell of woodsmoke and wild sage.
-
The cycling in southern Turkey amazes us on a daily basis, the roads are smooth, the landscapes are stunning and the people show us an unconditional kindness that is unlike anything we've ever experienced.

  • Beautiful sunset.  I planned the shoot, was in place and waited for the sun to set.  The clouds were spectacular 30 minutes before sunset and then dissipated.  The shot turned out good but could have been so much more.

  • Back on the road again! Waving goodbye to Amritsar we decided we missed the mountains far too much, leaving us with one direction to head in - north! After an hour’s jostling, weaving and at times forcing our way past various tuk-tuks, trucks, cars, school buses, horses, buffalo and eventually a manic level crossing, where a free-for-all lead to a battle to keep the bikes upright as people bashed into the panniers left, right and centre, we suddenly burst with great relief out onto a pristine dual carriageway of European standards and found ourselves gliding over the lowland plains. With a cracking roadside sunset telling us it was about time to stop we headed for a nearby town that just so happened to have a Dominoes Pizza. What a shame! Deciding it would be a travesty to pass up the opportunity to sample how their pizzas taste on the other side of the planet we promptly opted for a Chicken Feast with wedges. A perfect representation of the local cuisine we’re sure! Another quick battle with the city traffic the next morning and we were once again on our way, with the road rapidly changing from dual carriageway to single lane as we started to climb through the hills, the peaks of the Himalayas an ever-constant looming above us and countless cricket matches in seemingly every village we passed. Gradually the roads turned steeper, tighter and narrower until we made it through Dharamashala, home of the Tibetan government-in-exile and up to Mcleod Ganj at 2,000 metres. We had some trouble trying to find a reasonable place to stay - it seems India is going to be more expensive than Pakistan when it comes to accommodation - but as usual a very chirpy local came to our rescue. When it became apparent that his hostel wasn’t quite right for us as it would have meant leaving the bikes on a far away street he happily trotted up the road with us to find a friend’s hotel and tell him to give us a room for a far below standard rate! Bikes parked right in the middle of the foyer with the receptionist sleeping next to them at night we happily settled in to our room with a beer to watch the sun set over the plains we had just crossed.

Taken with iPhone. Somehow with so much noise, it turned out looking like a painting.
