The Millau viaduct I reckon. The tallest road bridge in the world. It's on the motorway from Paris to Barcelona. You'll cross it and it looks nothing exceptional. Go off the motorway and look at it from underneath. It's impressive, to say the least.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
