🥇 Road to the Russian North by @amikphoto

At the very beginning of summer, a couple of years ago my wife and I went on a short trip to the Russian north. The trip to Lake Onega was very interesting and informative. The main purpose of the trip was Kizhi island. There is a museum reserve with the same name. This place is interesting for its collection of wooden architectural objects typical of northern Russia. In addition, there is a unique wooden cathedral - the Church of the Transfiguration.

🥈 Exploring Buchanan Castle by @natubat

It wasn't exactly "urbex" – more "ruralex". I'm not sure if it's even worthy of such a description. Buchanan Castle, near the village of Drymen in the west of Scotland, is surprisingly easy to access. We just drove up and strolled in! Although there were several "Keep Out" signs, there were a couple of huge gaps in the barbed wire fence that were so big you didn't have to crouch down very far to get through. The biggest one had a path leading right up to it.

🥉 Granada on a Shoestring Budget by @pushpedal

How long we have waited for this moment. Matt studied a bit of Spanish language and history at university and this was one of the places he had been looking forward to seeing for a long time. We booked ourselves 3 nights and thankfully there was one sunny day (the other sunny day was when we departed Granada!). Our host lived in one of Granada's neighbouring towns. It had easy access to the city via a cycle lane that went along the main road. They were tour cyclists themselves and had many bikes in their garage. Quite an impressive collection. It wasn't hard for them to pick one and joined us for a ride in the morning to Granada.
