The Sunday Six: The Joys of Asian Roads
1: Bridges Can Be Scary
Thanks to Johnny Vagabond for having the presence of mind to photograph this Cambodian bridge after biking over it. I’ve driven over one of these but was too busy with the palpitations after to even contemplate a photo. You can read his full post here.
2: Unexpected Hold-Ups Are Not Uncommon
It took over 24 hours to move this truck off a road in rural Borneo. Unfortunately, we were on a bus, so had to wait there the whole time. Had we had our trusty bike, we’d have driven through the bush like everyone else.
3: Sometimes, It’s Like Driving on Mars
4: Sometimes, It’s Just Vietnam
5: Don’t Let The Horses Slow You Down!
Trying to overtake a lorry that was overtaking one of these horsecarts was one of the highlights of driving in Lombok, Indonesia. They come out of nowhere at a glacial pace, but the horses are, at least, unscarable.
6: Look! They’re Working On It!
What are the *worst* roads you’ve ever driven? Drop me a comment and let me know. If you’ve got any pics, do share: if I get enough I’ll do a follow-up post.
