Perfect sky!



The classic way to travel around Europe is self-drive car, chance in getting our preferred stop over, I must say that these experiences was greatly different. Perfect sky brightened up our day. Most European roads and motorways are state of the art. Our first stop was in Torino, Italy we arrived around lunch time... The lunch was exactly what we wanted and everything went as planned, Hubby and I visited our friends around the place... We wanted to stay longer but our next stop was a little far to drive.... (to be continued)


Motorists will be charged every time they pass through this toll gate.... arrrggh! additional travel expense(s), but toll gate helps control the volume of traffic.

  19. Hi PLO, I like your sky pictures. Yes, those toll booths are trouble.
    Here in the states we have transponders on our windshields that say to the booth, 'charge it' to our credit cards. No stopping, we go through at 80 MPH plus.
    Happy Skywatching.
