On the road postcards
Argentina. More than 7,000 KM from North to South and back. Every single picture in this collection has been taken from a moving vehicle while crossing the 8th biggest country in the world. The absolute central actor in this collection is the road itself and all the space that surrounds it. By bus, car, motorbike or bike, to me Argentina represents the ultimate place to experience an “on the road” trip in the truest sense possible.http://www.fotopedia.com/reporter/stories/PPRtyvdv4Gu

Panoramic views of Cordoba, Andalucia, Spain,Cordoba is a mid-sized city of 350,000 inhabitants and the capital of the province ofCordoba, situated in the center of Andalucia in Spain. A great cultural reference point in Europe, this ancient city has been declared a World Heritage Site and contains a mixture of the diverse cultures that have settled it throughout history.
Very few places in the world can boast of having been the capital of a Roman province (Hispania Ulterior), the capital of an Arab State (Al-Andalus) and a Caliphate. Such splendor is palpable in the intellectual wealth of this city, that has seen the birth of figures like Seneca, Averroes, and Maimonides. The historic quarter of Cordoba is a beautiful network of small streets, alleys, squares and whitewashed courtyards arranged around the Mezquita, which reflects the city’s prominent place in the Islamic world during medieval times.

Marvao, Alentejo, Portugal.They call it the Eagles Nest. Marvao is a spectacular medieval walled village perched at 900 metres on a rocky crag called the Serra de Marvao. The narrow cobbled streets lined with whitewashed houses many with decorative doors and windows from the 15th century, wind their way up to one of the best preserved castles in Portugal dating from the 13th century.
The views from the castle are truly breathtaking looking out over wild rocky landscape towards Spain and the Serra da Estrela mountains in Portugal, which are often snow capped in winter. At dawn, in the evening or when the mists close in Marvao becomes almost eerie as it rises up to touch the sky. This is a very special place.
Perched on the top of a steep granite hill the fortress has been impregnable for centuries and Marvao’s history shows how hard it was to persuade inhabitants to stay.
