Route 66

When we travelled a little on Route 66, it was exactly as I expected. Small towns, slightly rundown with a somewhat regretful feeling of having been left behind. While the interstate highway system makes it really easy to get around USA, visiting the small towns brings to home how much they have simply been cutoff from the rest of the world. Route 66 is trying very hard to use it’s historic status to bring in visitors and keep money in the local economy, and I was glad to help a little in that.

Sunflowers in Provence

While Province is well-known for the lavender fields, it is also covered in sunflower fields. Here is one of the many that we drove through when we were travelling in Provence. You can see them from miles away, bright yellow flag in the middle of the fields.

The streets of Paris

Walking through the streets of Paris in the 21st century, you so get the feeling that not much has changed in many years. The streets are full of cafe’s, small grocery and wine shops, and Parisians going about their day.

Almost every street corner has a cafe, and there are always people sitting outside drinking coffee. I could spend months just wondering around the streets of Paris.

Sedona

When we were in Arizona we took a road trip from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon. One of the towns we drove through was Sedona, which is a truly beautiful yet somewhat bohemian town, full of artists and hippies. B ut the landscape is spectacular. These bright magnificent red rocks shoot into the air from the desert, and they are spectacular to look at.

We were just driving past, but I would love to spend some time there exploring the trails and mountains in the area, it was such a lovely place. I am sure it will be the perfect place for some trail running (but not in summer; it can get above 40 degrees in the heat of the day).
