Those photos from Romania are stunning!

Switzerland has some truly awesome landscapes, but the views are so limited. Every time I'm in Switzerland I love it at first, but then later I get slightly claustrophobic There's no horizon..!

When I moved from my hometown in hilly Central Italy to Bologna, when I was 19, I felt the opposite: too much horizon, I felt agoraphobic

These are some of the most scenic roads I know which are close to my hometown. I like dramatic views of mountains as you will see

The LR-250 in the Leza River Canyon (Cańón del río Leza):


The A-2122 and BU-530 next to the Ebro river:




The SO-830 climbing down the Santa Inés mounain pass offers great views of the infinite pine woods of Soria:


Funnily enough the northern side (LR-333) is much more arid:


The northern part of Burgos province has some of the best landscapes I've seen. Here's a picture of the BU-550 where you can see part of the valley of Mena, where the Kingdom of Castile was born.


For those who like History: This is the exact place where Castile was born: http://g.co/maps/546fu

Green hills and trees, which differ a lot from the stereotypical idea of Castile (arid plains filled with fields of wheat).

I know what you mean, when I'm in the Alps I feel similar. But most Swiss actually live at least a few Kilometers from the Alps, so you actually have a nice background.

Many roads in my region look like this:

Not nearly as spectacular but still very beautiful.

Did you go to the Schilthorn, visiting Mr. Bond?

Here's a pic of Swiss A6 Thun - Spiez.

The Wine Roads in Goriška Brda in Slovenia there is a wonderful view over the Brda region, a vista of hills, churches, villages, vineyards, and orchards of cherries, peaches, apricots, and figs.

I have done that one in summer 2010 !!! Amazing experience!

I´am not sure cause i was 2009 last time there and the second part was still open but some dudes who were there this or last year say the complete road thru the canyon is now barried.there is another very interesting road near to this road that also goes thru a canyon.when you drive down the nigerpass(passo nigra) and not taking the main road but hitting left near the village of Tiers you find a road with a 24% climb that goes thru a canyon,very small and not very well known so mostly you are alone - here some kind of a map



i try to find few of my pictures but i am not sure that i have some cause i cant remeber that we ever stopped there

If you have a cabriolet or a spider such as a mx5 mazda you can have a lot of fun driving such roads - i am a passioned motorcycle driver but you can also have a lot of fun whan you get the right car
