Positano and Amalfi road ride

I have heard from this ride on the Amalfi road for a long time, finally we made it. 100kms of coast ride with dozen of villages perched on the hills. The best one has to be Positano. It is the one with more restaurants and tourists anyways. The road is a like a col (hill climb) with villages every6-7 kilometers, it is hard to comprehend how and when theses villages where build. The Italian are the world champion to built tunnels and villages on top of hills. We started the trip at Pompeii another very interesting place. Enjoy the ride

A friend told me you always need 3 visuals elements in a photo, well here you are the cranes, Pompei and mount vesuvius :-)

  2. Good to see winter is at an end. And you out on the road again.
    Here it is still hot and dry and very busy.
    We will be in France from 5 July. We arrive Barcelona and travel north via Sete area than south west France then to Nancy and after that Scotland. Any idea where you will be?
