^ Nice!


Some Georgia:











They better have some bypass!








I've seen this a few times in my city.


To the left Vladikavkaz (Russia), to the right Kazbegi, now called Stepantsminda. It lies at the foothills of Mt. Kazbek, Georgia's third highest mountain. Nice beret.


Mt. Kazbek.


And Azerbaijan:















Autobahn! Turn right for Tehran.


A local road, I believe.


Wow!


Wow!






Yes, you should do it too.

This one which links Karachi-Gwadar(both in pakistan) along the arabian coastline is quite remote too and is always next to the sea. ( hence the name of coastal highway)

That James Bay Road site is breathtaking. I think I've got a new favorite place to go...

Welcome to the Khyber Pass (1,070 m), linking Pakistan with Afghanistan, an historical entrance into the Indian subcontinent.

You don't have this in The Netherlands, because almost everywhere live people!

Of course you can find such pics everywhere, but yeah, your first thought wouldn't be Holland for sure. As already OT (and since I'm the starter of the thread, I can post whatever I want :P), I think one of the most remote roads in Slovenia would be the road Kočevje - Črnomelj, running through Kočevski Rog, a region inhabited by bears and wolves, that's why I haven't driven there yet. But otherwise I've made some pics of a gravel/muddy road, leading towards the tripoint between Slovenia, Croatia and Hungary (also the easternmost point of Slovenia). I gotta say I felt pretty remote there. For the pics click here and here. Dewrob, sorry for posting them for the 5th time.

Indeed, but those prejudices are not only counting for foreigners (it's imaginable they have), but for a lot of dutch people as well. "Holland is full", "There is no nature in holland left", "Holland is big sea of asphalt", those are kinda popular howls here. But it says nothing. More than 60% is unbuilded land, and our motorway network takes only 0,2% of our (small) surface.

That's probably because most people want some more than just a few patches of nature. On the other hand, I have plenty of bears and wolves just 60 km away from me, and don't really feel like going there.
