Hi Liza,

This is beautiful and mysterious. I've been looking up the highway to try and figure out where it could be, and several countries in Europe have a D81. Love the pink ground with the great. Supe with the dark purple and green. Just wonderful.

Hi Barbara, how (when) on earth do you do all the things you do? I can't believe you actually took the time to look it up! Well, as D stands for "départementale", there is probably a D 81 in just about every one of the 100 départements. This one, which I drove along yesterday morning, is in the Charente. I was coming back from Angouleme, going south to Verteillac. This particular stretch is also called "Route de Torsac".

Oh, and thank you for your kind words!
