Thats's really difficult: A country with warm weather (palmae), metric system (speed limit) and left hand traffic...

Hmm, I guess Brunei, but I really don't know

Pino, you were very fast.
Yes, it's the bridge over the Suriname river at Paramaribo.

Yes, Jules Wijdenbosch Bridge, you're right! But you haven't mentioned the country: Suriname!

Edit: Some minutes too slow

I think we once saw another pic of this bridge and the sign in the background on the Dutch forum. When I saw this one, it immediately rang a bell. In other words, I was lucky; for most of the photos in this thread, I am really clueless.

Anyway, I will not have access to my photo collection until Sunday. But rest assured, I will post one then ...

Thanks everyone for the patience. Here is your next assignment. It was a pleasant drive in Spring. Clear blue skies and many gardens along the route were in blossom. But, on which road was I driving when I took this picture?

Not a bad thought at all, but the answer is wrong.

Looks so Belgian like but i'm guessing Germany.

Road items seem Italian to me.
It's not the A4 Pino mentioned - perhaps the A7 south of Milano ?

It's Italy indeed. But the correct road is still to be named.

It was the A14 in the Imola area. Makaveli is the winner !

Was it pure guess of an Italian 2x3 road that had not been called yet or did you recognise the area? What strikes me is that this is an area on the edges of the Pianura where the Apennine mountains are generally quite visible, particularly on a beautiful day. The photo was taken when travelling in the direction of Rimini, so the mountains are on your right-hand side. They must even have been visible when looking over the garden that is on the photo, yet no mountains appear on the photo (not intentional, but probably the result of focus). Made it a nice one for "Guess the highway".
