Reykjavík, Iceland
Outskirts of REYKJAVIK, Iceland --- We travelled on the Golden Circle, a popular tourist route that covers about 300 km with primary stops that include national park Þingvellir, the waterfall Gullfoss (meaning "golden falls"), and the geothermally...
Save Place
N9, Morocco
The distance between Ouarzazate and Marrakech is only 200km (125 miles) but the drive on the N9 through the High Atlas Mountains can take as long as four hours. The winding road, full of switch backs and featuring such scenery as to make one's jaw...
Save Place
Machu Pichu, Peru
We were among the first 50 or so people into Machu Picchu in the morning and the fog completely set the scene. It really made you feel like you were in a lost city and helped you understand how it could have been lost for so long.
Save Place
The trees look as if they have plotted a slow attack to take over the road. Vines hang down trying to slyly block my way and hinder my vision. The road isn’t straight nor does it have any defined shoulders or boundaries. The asphalt is laid around...
Save Place
Grossglockner High Alpine Road, 5661, Austria
The Grossglockner is without a doubt one of Austria’s most impressive natural sights. It’s not only Austria’s tallest mountain, but also one of the highest peaks of the Alps. Once you have laid eyes on this giant, you will both desperately want to...
Save Place
Kebler Pass, Colorado 81230, USA
My girlfriend and I were celebrating the day of her birth with a lovely off road adventure. Once at the top, we decided to hike at the peak of Kebler Pass while witnessing Aspen trees as wide as truck tires. The towering forest, mingling with...
Save Place
CA-1, Bodega Bay, CA 94923, USA
Many car commercials have been filmed along this stretch of the iconic California road. The hairpin turns and switchbacks make it a wild ride for some, but the views to the west (the ocean) and the east (Northern California's inimitable green...
Save Place
Latin America
Salta in Argentina is known for its colorful mountains, giant cactus, and beautiful cathedrals within the city center. Cafayate is known for its wine. Take a chance to enjoy these both parts of beautiful northern Argentina by jumping on a tour...
Save Place
Mt Crested Butte, CO, USA
I lived in Colorado for 15 years and explored some areas quite a bit, camera in hand. The Crested Butte area is one of the prettiest areas in the state. Crested Butte is known as a ski destination, but I went in summer and autumn and loved it. Get...
Save Place
San Diego, Nicaragua
A string of random events had landed me with a house/dog sitting gig in Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the Western hemisphere. Every morning at 5am, before the temperature climbed well into the 90s I took the dog for a walk up the dusty...
Save Place
East Asia
With no roads in Western Mongolia, it's pretty easy to get lost. While participating in the Mongol Rally (driving from London to Mongolia), we were challenged in many ways. However in Mongolia our challenge was directions! With a map of the...
Save Place
2 Church St, Knockaunroe, Corofin, Co. Clare, V95 T9V6, Ireland
Ireland tugs at the heart strings. It is everything you could imagine - and more. I have been there 4 times and love it. Of course, I might be partial since I have a good friend who lives there. She got married in 2009 in this tiny, gorgeous...
Save Place
Urubamba, Peru
With limited time, we had to forego hiking the Inca trail to get to Machu Picchu. The alternative? Taking the train down the Urubamba river valley. The ride from Cuzco to Aguas Calientes, at the base of the mountain crowned by the ruined Inca...
Save Place
Roys Peak, Otago 9381, New Zealand
The guidebooks say this is a difficult trek but well worth it. After a huffing and puffing trek to the top of Roy’s Peak, I would most certainly like to concur. 11k in approximately 4-5 hours, a decent level of fitness is most needed for this...
Save Place
Latin America
We had only gone a quarter mile off the main road before our first river crossing. We surveyed for the shallowest route then gunned the tiny car through the water. This was only the first of many crossings as we climbed steadily into the Andes....
Save Place
Milford Sound Visitor Centre, Milford Sound Hwy 94, Milford Sound 9679, New Zealand
My husband & I were lucky to have the opportunity to travel around New Zealand for several weeks. Of course, Milford Sound was one of the "must sees" on our list. We booked a day tour with a local operator called Trips and Tramps. Unfortunately,...
Save Place
Iceland
One of the lovely things about driving around the countryside is the beautiful, and curious, Icelandic horses.
Save Place
Latin America
Cuesta del Obispo. Six washouts, roaring rivers, road/no road, falling boulders, amazing views.
Save Place
Hana Hwy, Hawaii, USA
The famous Hana Highway. This loop around the eastern side of Maui is truly spectacular. There are many reasons to pull over and just look around. From the waterfalls, the beaches, and jungle, this spot might have been my favorite. It was a one...
Save Place
Las Palmas, Spain
walking on the moon... Well Timanfaya National Park is on Earth but it looks of another world. In this part of the park, the mountains of fire, its necessary to jump on a bus to take a look around since cars are not allowed on that particular...
Save Place
Central City, Salt Lake City, UT, USA
I love the homes in my Salt Lake City neighborhood.
Save Place
Polihua Beach, Hawaii 96763, USA
The Hawaiian island of Lana'i is not for the posh, it's for the rugged. With only 30 miles of paved roads (which basically break down into 3 actual roads) and 400 miles of unpaved roads stretching in every direction possible - the island requires...
