    Hi everyone,
    I was using the search option to see wether this topic has been on the list. So time to start it:

    Everyone has a favourite of his travels. So c'mon, let's see! One pic and a short description.

    I'll do the starter with that one:

    I took that one in Kaikoura/NZ. The most difficult thing was to get the spermwhale in the right position :D

    Now your turn!

    Cheers

    You can try to find the bike related stuff, but it's pretty dark. I took it resting the camera on my helmet if that counts for anything...

    Believe it or not, this was taken in 2003. The old car and family were obviously broken down off HWY 40. Looked like a scene from The Grapes of Wrath.
