Keep it comming!
your photos are state of the art...
Great to see another installment, D! As always your photos are amazing and the commentary is excellent. Thanks!
Thank you all!
Great !! I was afraid you were done telling your story here... I'm glad you're not ! Still amazing pics and story telling. Thanks ! :)
WOW I just catch up with this rr, best pictures I ever seen!!!
To me after a while on a road like this I come to a state of trance or unmeant meditation. I'm not talking about a delirium, more of a liberation of my mind that was filled with the common daily thoughts. All these thoughts are now all blown away and thoughts, that have never been thought before come up, thoughts that haven't been thought for ages are reborn ...
This really spoke to me along with your terrific pictures.....wonderful. Thank you!
It just occurred to me that if you look at the number of views this report has had relative to the number of actual report installments.....it is one big-A number! I take it as a metric indicating Dirck's fabulous photography and story-telling abilities! Speaking of which.......ahem.
I'm always very happy to read your comments. A great pleasure. And yes, Via Mediterra will go on but with a few interruptions. One of them will start on Saturday when I have the pleasure to ride this baby through Morocco.
And there's another thing coming up in which you may participate:
The new movie project: "Pyrenean Adventures"
Watch the trailer of "Pyrenean Adventures"
I would be happy if you join in and spread the word to make this movie happen.
See you all with another chapter of Via Mediterra soon.
Stunning, what an artist
Beautiful and historic Mediterranean!
Thanks for sharing!
The little village east of San Vito is Castellamare del Golfo, this is the one we saw from above while going towards Scopello
Damned, when are we going again ?!?
Bis Bald, man.
And when are we going again?
It's about time!
See you on Sunday with the boyz
Custom X-challenge.....nice ! Pity about the stock suspension unit. Could do with an upgrade.
Just discovered this thread.
Great photos of course.
Subscribed for more! (whenever you get back to it)
Great stuff!! Hope to see some more!!
I spotted this thread way late, and it took me the good part of two days nonstop to catch up with everything. Man, the pictures you take are stunning. I so wish I had some of that talent.
thank you everybody for your kind comments you've left in the meantime.
I've taken a ferry from Trapani on Sicily to the island of Pantelleria. Though it's Italian it lies already south of Tunis in terms of latitude. Some wealthy Italians like Mr. Berlusconi and Mr. Armani have their holiday home here.
Pantellerias architecture is quite specific with its stone houses and their flat white roofs.
The islands roads offer some extremes ...
... but though the coast road is magnificent there's another reason to go here. And the reason is underwater.
Due to its position in the Med the waters of Pantelleria offer best food supply for a lot of species. Humans included
I'm not a diver, not a snorkeller and I already dislike water temperatures of less than a hot shower. But how can I travel the Med without at least one time get my toes wet? That's why I've bought a snorkel, flippers and an underwater housing for the G9 (camera).
For those of you familiar with scuba-diving these pics won't be spectecular at all. For me as an underwater noob they are much more than I've expected.
And even above the waterlevel there are some nice motives. A bit too posh maybe. But can you imagine Giorgio Armani rowing around the island?
In the evening I take the ferry back to Sicily ...
... to find accomodation in Palermos old town at Claudios. This is now the time to learn more about Palermo, Sicily and the Mafia. And Claudio is the right person to teach me.
That will be the story of the next chapter.
Stunning pictures -- as always
