Autumn is the best season in the city, though it's ephemeral. In the last post, I said that "It's autumn now, take a trip to the colorful mountain, climbing, hiking, bicycling, etc". Riding bike in autumn is the wonderful thing, the warm weather, the beautiful views beside the road, exercise bodies easy way.
The longest distance that I have ridden is nearly 60km, it was taken between my hometown and a neighboring county seat, and I and one of my friends, rode the normal bicycle at the age of 17. A damn riding experience that time, but the pleasant memories now.
"Fall Tour", a real rider, who had done twice biking "The Golden Circle, which is actually shaped more like a broken triangle, is a 370-mile route of connecting roads between Haines and Skagway, Alaska". Although be called fall tour, the vacation was full of challenge, the headwind, the squishy trails. What awesome trails they had chosen, attractive scenic showed by the photos, also the fun trip they did.

"初识老庙村": A local young guy shot around, to show the origin appearance of the old village. small street, old house, contrast between tall building and dilapidated dwellings, the old temple, the river, the vegetables garden, and the common life in village. Although the post was written in Chinese, u can travel the village through the pictures in post. You can click here to view the post which is translated into English.
Arles, in Provence, far southern France. If we know nothing about this city, read the geography, history, main sights, famous people of Arles on Wikipedia first, then lets travel together.
"Arles": Posted by Peter, a retired swede living in Paris, about his second time to Arles. In this post, he told us "Arles has a long Greek, Celtic and Roman history and the city has still a number of more or less complete buildings from those but also from medieval times.", and "Arles is just to walk around the old houses and the narrow streets, just feeling the atmosphere." As a photographer, he also added lots of pictures of the fascinating place. After reading this, we can read his first trip to Arles , more photo in the post.
"Arles": By Thomas, only five pictures and one sentence. "Hotel Particulier: Urban Oasis in Arles" blogged by Thomas as well, about "great boutique hotel" in Arles.
"Arles Van Gogh's Friends": By Sharilyn Miller, a jewelry designer, she noted the weekend car trip heading west to the Languedoc region, Arles on her way. She love the ancient, crumbling part of the building.
"The Best of Southern France: Arles!": Was written by an American student, she lived in Arles for almost two months. She completed her article with four pars, "A Different Experience", "An Ancient Influence", "Language in Arles, France", "Why I Wrote This Guide". In her eye, "Arlesiens seem to spend their days talking, laughing, and eating outdoors in antiquated cafes. Arles, France, is alive with a spirit and love of life."
Great place, Arles, wish i could be there now.

"SP Road Trip: Mount Desert Island, Maine": The article begins with a photo of lobster-bake picnics, the traveler drove up from New York to the island, describes their stop and road trip. Then the author discusses the rustic and remote society, but i can't understand this paragraph.
Reading this, "The setting sun dancing before us fought for attention with the rising full moon as lobsters steamed in the pot, bringing the whole picture into clear focus and I realized what being a rusticator is really about." at the end of first day, "The boat ride home under the full moon across the bay was like sliding into a dream." poetical life, isn't?

Why do people like traveling? Living in different way, seeking, or just traveling.
Where both sunrise and sunset, why do people go to different place, to enjoy?
I don't understand myself sometimes, may do the travelers. If i can't travel, i can have a journey over the nets, from one place to another, from one post to another, from one blog to another.
That's why taonets exists, traveling around over the nets.
