Hello Boa,

The picture is taken on a Saturday morning, almost by noon.

To holmertz: yes, it is safe

Hello Gert,

On the bridge that you see here (the only spectacular one on the whole trail) there are safety railings.
And the path is almost all the time wide enough.

I've always felt attracted...

To Gerrit: niet een grot

Dag Gerrit,

De foto werd niet vanuit een grot genomen maar vanop een deel van het pad dat als een tunnel uitgegraven werd. Hier had de tunnel dan een opening langs de ravijnzijde.

Hi Piotr,

Remembering the fantastic nature pictures you regularly show on TE, I'm quite sure that you would enjoy hiking in the Picos de Europa.

To adramad: the most beautiful part

Hello Luis,

I'm quite sure that you have walked the most beautiful part of the trail and you have seen it in both directions. ;)
Closer to Poncebos the canyon widens and is less spectacular. The...

To Gerrit: met de fiets

Dag Gert,

Tijdens de tocht zag ik ook enkele sportievelingen met de mountainbike.
Dat leek me echt heel wat uitdagender zo net naast de afgronden, vooral omdat je dan de vele trekkers te voet...

To holmertz: rough ?

Hi Gert,

For the most part this 'ruta' is an artificial constructed or widened path in a canyon eroded by the river. So the trail is really in the heart of the wildernes.
But very close to...

Smile To holmertz: 'people' fanatic

Hi Gert,

You’re right. Streets, squares, temples and so on are made for people. So why trying to avoid them on pictures? I tried to remember why I thought so before I knew TE.

Jaren geleden bij het bezoek aan een boeddhistische tempel in Myanmar raakte in gesprek met een Japanse toerist. Ik vroeg hem of het boeddhisme in Japan anders beleefd werd waarop hij...

Ribadesella is situated at the mouth of a river, the Sella.
The water you see here is the river.
The part at the right side isn't an island. It's the mainland just like the land at...

Hello Jason,

Most streets were certainly not narrow.
And perhaps with just a few exceptions, the number of people in the streets isn't too bad. Neither in the underground.

Hello Frank,

Other towns in Morocco may be more touristic than Tangiers but a lot easier to get around.

Good luck during your next visit!

Zulke stad is ook niet mijn woongebied.

Hi Jason,

You're the first one who says something about the title or the 'golden turd' ...
I think the title has gone unnoticed to most visitors.

That is the Tokyo Tower.

To alvaraalto: de gebouwen

Dag Rob,

Eén gebouw is inderdaad een kerk. Gotische architectuur.
Het gebouw rechts is een combinatie van vuurtoren en kasteel/versterkte vesting.
