These roads are mostly from Bhutan, where there is no such thing as a straight road … all roads are winding along mountain sides, or clinging to river edges as they wind along too. When we were there in 2008 there was a frenzy of construction in preparation for big celebrations in 2009. Amazingly we were never held up for long, as the kindness and efficiency of the people made the impossible happen to get us through. The Irish roads are just two views of the Dingle Peninsular, more winding and hilly landscape which seems to be our favourite.
