This is a quick one. Just a few pics showing yours truly getting ready to ride. I want it to be noted that we had about 40 degrees Celsius - in the shadow - that day. However, I put on all the protective gear. Because there is only one way you can ride the Bird: with respect ... lots of respect.
I decided it is time to explore the neighbourhood. Today I did so by going to Sfantu Gheorghe, some 30km North-East from Brasov. Needless to say, I did not take the shortest route.
Last weekend was another perfect summer weekend so we decided to go swimming to a volcanic lake nearby. Excellent opportunity for a short ride as you can see below.
As some of you know, I recently bought a motorcycle. I will post the technical details soon. For now it may suffice to say that it is a Honda CBR 1100XX (also known as 'Super Blackbird'). Last weekend I picked it up in Vienna and drove it to Brasov. Exact route and some comments can be found below.
Recently returned from a wellness weekend in Bulgaria and now found the time to share this experience with you. Take it as a warning.
We stayed at the 'Lighthouse Golf & Spa Resort' - a proclaimed 5-star facility.
One more insight into Bali traffic. They certainly have their own idea of 'mass transport'. Note the maturity of the driver.
Like any city, Kuta has its fair share of construction sites.However, not all of them would be quite as optimistic as the one below.
I briefly mentioned the traffic situation in Bali in another post. Apart from 'normal' traffic, there are some particularities to be found, as you can see below.
To nobodys big surprise, Balis agriculture consists to a considerable degree of rice fields. We visited one of these plantations and as beautiful, peaceful and enticing they appear. Planting and harvesting rice is back-breaking work.
One more temple - the last one, I promise.This is one of the more traditional temples and gives you very good idea of how they are constructed: in harmony with nature. Instead of flattening landscapes and chopping down forests for building monumental buildings, these temples are very much integrated into the surrounding nature. In some cases - like this one - you will find yourself in actual jungle if you venture to walk some twenty meters from the actual temple.
