Just like Lucy from On the Luce, who was kind enough to nominate me for this photography competition, I can never resist hunting through past photographs looking for the ideal fit for the latest travel meme. The theme today is transport with categories for travel by air, rail, sea and road and all the details on how to enter can be found on Rhino Car Hire Travel Your Way Competition page. There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs and here some of my favourite travelling photographs.
I’ve literally just got back from an intensive 6-day, road trip around Sardinia, visiting numerous hotels and private villas, so this seemed a great place to start. One journey was particularly breath-taking, between Santa Maria Navarese and Oliena (Uliana) which takes you along the west coast and then into the mountains. The views (and drops) were spectacular and it was very popular with bikers. I jumped in the back seat for part of the journey to take shots of the motorcyclists either overtaking us or passing us in the opposite direction. Here are two of my favourite shots from that journey but they’ll be more in a future post.
Although I regularly travel by air I’ve got very few photographs relating to this mode of transport. I do enjoy taking the occasional photograph through the plane window though. Here’s a recent one taken flying back from Bologna, not long before landing at Gatwick.
My favourite journey by train is in Corsica, between Calvi and L’Ile Rousse. A rickety old train chugs along the coastline giving those on-board ample time to take shots through the window of the lovely beaches and views along the way. Here’s one of my favourite shots from my last visit, taken from the train, early in the morning, when the sea was like a sheet of glass with just the occasional gentle ripple.
Not sure the backwaters of Kerala really counts as sea but this is my favourite photograph relating to travel on water.
I would like to nominate the following to enter this competition, the deadline for which is the end of the month so you better get a shake on if you’d like to join in!
The competition’s T & C’s can be found here.

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.
