🥇 Annecy Trip Day Two: Biking the Lake by @leaky20

On day two of our time in Annecy my wife and I, along with our dog, rode our bikes around the Lake. This was our first time taking the bikes on a trip with us so we were pretty excited about the whole ordeal and I would even say that it was probably the highlight of our trip overall. One nice thing was that the ride was pretty easy too, even for beginners like us. The path travels around the entire lake on a dedicated bike path and the terrain is mostly flat except for one large steep hill near the town of Talloires. That spot was a bit too much for us and we had to walk our bikes half way up the mountain. But we saw a few other people without electric bikes doing the same thing so we didn't feel too bad about it.

🥈 A Solo Birthday Trip to Sagada Series Part 1: Spontaneous Detour, Eerie Burial Traditions, and Green Lush Fields by @kayceeports2020

I chose Sagada because January is one of the best times to visit its cold climate. As someone who grew up in a tropical country such as the Philippines, I always look forward to visiting other countries during their coldest climate because it's the only opportunity where I can sport winter fashion clothes. Haha! But if you want a quick getaway, the Philippines also have elevated areas in Ifugao and Mountain Province, or even closer to the capital like Tagaytay, where we can cozy up with a blanket holding a hot cup of coffee. Another reason is that I love long trips where I can be alone with my thoughts. Imagine my excitement when the bus departed at 10 PM knowing that I'll be at my destination the next morning!

🥉 West Balkans - Switzerland - Italy moto trip (part 2) by @orestistrips

I'm leaving Montenegro behind with really nice memories despite the stuff that was stolen from my bike and a minor fall I had close to Cetinje. Weather's nice with only a few clouds decorating the blue sky. All set to enjoy a ride by the sea (for most of the part) and the funny fact that on this route you leave Montenegro to enter Croatia then Bosnia/Herzegovina for a tiny part then again Croatia. As ex Yugoslavia as it gets... At the borders I didn't have much delay due to my wise choice to pick early season to be around but those hippy(ish) guys in a beetle van might still be there checked by the local police. I guess the officers smelled their weed from miles away. I did :)
