Okay, someone told me to upload my pics of Spain here. It is really a load of pics, but not such large pics, as you seen throughout this forum.

The route:

N240 -> AP2 -> AP7 ->C32 -> B20 -> C58 -> C33 -> AP7
(Lérida/Lleida - Sitges - Barcelona - La Jonquera)

















































































































Part II

What does those IC and IP numbers mean? Why doesn't Portugal have A or R (rodovia?) numbers for its motorways?

In Portugal we have different designations for the roads. First we have the IP's and IC's. IP means main road(connects all the district capitals and important towns) and the IC's, complementary roads that connect cities with less importance. These two types of roads can be applied to highways and national roads. But, the highways have also another designation that starts by an A plus the number of the highway. For example, the A2 that connects Lisbon to Algarve is also the IP1 because connects two important regions. The pictures that I put are from the IP2 which is a national road with some improvements because connects several district capitals in the interior of the country so was designated IP2. Finally, the IC1, when the A2 didn't exist was the IP1. But, when the A2 was built he was renamed to IC1 because now the main road from Lisbon to Algarve is A2-IP1(Highway number 2 and main road number 1).

It's interesting how the road signs are very similar to UK 'A Road' roadsigns, but the highways are more like US Highways than European ones.

I'd love to drive around Australia one day...it looks like a great place for someone like me who loves the open road.

Well, Google Earth's zoomed areas are expanded. Here's Antalya's Interchanges;
Iller Interchange

Airport Interchange

Isparta Road Interchange(It's 2,75km northeast of Airport interchange)


Kemer's Interchanges(Kemer is 35km south of Antalya)
It's renowated to a roundabout intersection now.

Kuzdere Bridge Interchange(Now added two lanes to bridge.)
