No twists, no glory – Weekly photo challenge “Twist”

You have done your research and have meticulously read and reread the guidebook. As you embark upon on the drive, full of twists, turns and hairpin bends, you try to fight the very last smudge of doubt – what if the whole experience, after all the twists and turns, is not worth it?

For this week’s photo challenge – Twist, I have selected the fruits of three drives full of twists and bends. While the pictures are idyllic, the drives along the twisty roads were far from smooth. However, in each case, the views were definitely worth the very interesting and adventurous road trips.

3. Cabo Formentor, in the island of Mallorca, Spain:

Do you have any such experiences? A road full of twists and turns, but totally worth it? Please share, so that I can fuel my wanderlust with more twists šŸ™‚

    Lombard Street, famously known as the ‘Crooked Street’ in San Francisco comes to my mind.

  2. I agree…Lombard Street. The Road to Hana is beautiful. We lived on Oahu for two years while my husband was stationed there. šŸ™‚ Great photos and a cool take on this assignment.

      • It was fun! I had small children when we lived there so it was nice never having to bundle everyone up into winter coats, hats and mittens. We could go outside everyday which was nice. I love being outside so there are tons of things to do there. Also, the breeze and the smell of plumeria in the air never gets old. It is intoxicating! I’m scared of geckos though and they lived in our house…that was a drawback! šŸ™‚

  3. What lovely photos. You must have thoroughly enjoyed yourself there. I’ve never liked twisty roads, either. When I visited the Genting Highlands in Malaysia several times when I was a kid, my dad drove the family up to this place – located on top of a mountain and the only way up there was a path going round in circles. The car ride went very slow…you can imagine how sick I felt, given I suffer from motion sickness šŸ˜€ But the view at the top was stunning – could see Malaysia’s city in all its glory!
