Sunday 14 January 2024

Adios Donostia! Until the next time... smile

Monday 27 November 2023

Little wonder around Oundle. Wouldn't be England if it wasn't raining though wink Very pretty place all the same.

Monday 12 June 2023

Few random shots from the road today. Sadly these don't do justice to the beautiful drive through the Jura sad

Saturday 10 June 2023

Random shot from the road, just outside village of Quintaine. Am a sucker for rolling vineyards & a little church.

Saturday 12 November 2022

Montpezat-de-Quercy. Another lovely little medieval village, with commanding views over the surrounding countryside.

Thursday 10 November 2022

Short walk in Bruniquel. Love off-season tourism, have this beautiful medieval village practically all to ourselves!

Thursday 7 July 2022

Easy morning ride through vineyards & villages of southern Bourgogne. Impressive monastery in Rimont. Lovely area.

Unbelievable Italian/Swiss ride. Lakes, spectacular Maggia Valley & super technical descent to the finish! Love it!

Friday 24 June 2022

Out of luck with weather so au revoir Haute-Savoie! Crossing Col des Aravis. Hope Pratiwi is praying for some sun! wink

Tuesday 21 June 2022

Today's dawn ride: river Rhone, sheep, canals, Lac du Bourget, a tiny chapel, col du Chat & Jongieux vinyards. Phew!

Monday 20 June 2022

Seems 2hr+ dawn ride not enough today so took 100s of steps up to tiny church perched atop volcanic rock. Nice view!

Friday 6 May 2022

Cruising the Prades Mountains. Awesome quiet roads, views from every one. More kays & climbing than Tourmalet loop!

Thursday 5 May 2022

Cliff-edge walk around Siurana. Wow! Reminiscent of Blue Mountains. You know, except for the 900 year old church! wink

Friday 29 April 2022

Vilaplana church. Great ride from the Med through villages like this, forests & climbs. Perfect weather. Love it! smile

Tuesday 22 March 2022

Churches everywhere in Lisbon. Feels like on every corner! A couple of the more ornate ones we wondered into today.

Monday 14 September 2020

Quick look around a very quiet Saint-Felix-Lauragais. Nice view from chateau but wow - this landscape looks very dry!

Tuesday 1 October 2019

Today's ride: lovely sunny loop from Chiemsee round by Reit im Winkl & return. Felt flat as a pancake! grin

Sunday 29 September 2019

Morning tootle on the bike. Austrian valleys, lakes, churches & castles under brilliant blue skies. Beautiful stuff.

Friday 27 September 2019

Stunning scenery & brutal gradients. Passes Falzarego, Valparola, Falzarego - again wink - & Giau. Utter perfection.

Monday 23 September 2019

Grey day in the Dolomites so little stroll in the village (La Villa) & stumbled across this pretty little church.

Monday 1 July 2019

Morning wonder around San Sebastian. Overcast & quiet, but still lovely. Now... which of these tapas bars is open? wink

Thursday 27 April 2017

Might be a bit nippy today, but makes for some crazy clouds up in the high stuff. Love the ever changing views here.

Sunday 8 January 2017

Random villages lucky enough to get some late afternoon sun... not that there's much warmth to it this time of year.

Wednesday 28 September 2016

I often ride by this little church but today just couldn't help but stop to take a shot to share the view. Fabulous!

Friday 23 October 2015

Passing the church at Niembro cove & thought it pretty enough for a picture. The joys of random travel smile

Monday 10 August 2015

Appears there aren't many stone churches in Norway, but is one here in Luster. Very quirky! Dates from around 1200AD.

Thursday 6 August 2015

Passing through Lom so quick look at the stave church. Origins in 12th century, but rebuilt in the 17th apparently.

Friday 31 July 2015

Short walk up the 'waterfall steps' & to the little church in Geiranger. Nice view, but it's better from higher up smile

Friday 17 July 2015

Random little church we passed on the drive today. Bit of restoration going on so we couldn't go in though.

Saturday 23 May 2015

A very quick, grey & chilly stroll in Ypres before dinner.

Tuesday 28 April 2015

The church of St Anne (or Anna?) in Brugge. Just passing by on our walk into the centre of town but still impressive.

Tuesday 21 April 2015

Arriving at Mertloch in the evening sunshine, spotted a church off in the distance. Just random German countryside.

Tuesday 8 January 2013

L'église Saint-Laurent in Aas. Get's you closer to god? wink

Sunday 4 November 2012

Trinità dei Monti, top of the Spanish Steps: one of the more modest religious places we've seen here.

Sunday 26 August 2012

In Sankt Peter, but sadly we missed the monastery tour so had to be content with a look at the little church.

Wednesday 8 August 2012

Part way up the cliff above Hallstatt we find the church Maria Ascension. With the world's most scenic graveyard?

Tuesday 24 July 2012

Church of Saint-Séverin. Thought the garish (70s) windows & columns (supposedly in the form of palms) a bit unusual.
