Everyday matters - A travel memory
I haven't travelled very far this year but I did drive to the other side of the island to visit a small town atop a very high mountain. When we arrived the road up was closed and the only alternative was the cable car, a ride of about 10 minutes. It went up and up, higher and higher and apparently this was the view from the window.....I wouldn't know as I had my eyes closed for the whole journey, going up and coming down!
It was definately quicker than the car drive up, but why was the road closed?
We soon found out why, as we stepped off the cable car we heard the cars racing by. There was a hill climbing car race going on. I'm not a motor racing fan, but I have to admit it was exciting!
