    Summer vacation season is upon us in the northern hemisphere and road trips are a great expression of our personal freedom. Show us where you've been lately or previously if you haven't been anywhere lately. Not a requirement, but I'm curious to see how you got there with vehicle in picture (RV, car, motorbike, bicycle, wheelchair, VW camper, bus ...)
    After the last contest, many have been asking, "Are we there yet?"
    Yes, we have arrived!

    Same rules apply as always:

    The photographs must be your own work.
    • Be creative and have fun.
    • You may only submit one photo per contest.
    • Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
    • The contest runs for one week, starting NOW!
    • At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.
    • The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    Haven't really been anywhere for a while, but this was a 'road trip' on New Years Eve. It is a road. Technically. I was taking photos while we were navigating the trail...

    Out of curiosity, would you prefer to see a "pre-destination-en-route" photo, or a photo from the actual destination for this challenge? :) I have some en-route photos, but they look nothing like the ultimate destination, so not really a good "vacation" photo per se.

    Zion NP, roadtrip. One of the few of my images that come anywhere close to capturing the scale of this place. DSC08180.jpg

    I think a road trip begins when you leave and doesn't end until you get back or reach your final destination. I hope that helps mollyc.

    Hmmm....this is a good challenge! I have lots that fit the criteria, but it's hard to pick just one!

    I take a zillion and three quarters vacation photos on every trip we take (I'm also a scrapbooker). It was hard to choose just one!

    This is rv63, the beginning road from Geiranger to Valldal. The one you're thinking of is Trollstiegen which is further out on rv63 closer to Andalsnes. I saw it but didn't drive it as it was a tourist mess. But basically, every road up/down a mountain are full of the hairpin turns.

    I thought I seen it before,was from different angle,though. Outside the hostel on top of the hill is an excellent view platform,where you see the town and a part of the fjord. I drove exactly that road about 4 years ago.
    I can agree that trollstigen is a tourist mess,been there a few times.

    Not necessarily a road trip in the truest meaning of the word and taken years ago with a rather crappy camera, but here you go:

    Bullet train. More precisely the Nozomi Shinkansen from Tokyo to Hakata.

    Between 2004 and 2005 I travelled around the world through many countries. I have to many pictures to choose from. After looking for a while I took this one of myself shoot at Cape Reinga in New Zealand.

    It is the last day for this round.
    I'm really enjoying the amazing entries so far!
    If you've been on the fence on what to submit, just close your eyes and pick one out already.
