Road trips are one of my favourite types of holiday and they can really add a dimension to your holiday that you can’t experience by simply flying somewhere, for example. I wanted to talk a bit more about this and let you know some of my top reasons that you should take a road trip for your next holiday. Enjoy reading and I hope this inspires you to get out and feel the open road through the tyres of your car very soon.
You haven’t seen all of your own country
There is always the problem where a person never gets to see their own country because they never get around to doing it. It is always so easy to say that you will do it another time or that it will always be there for you to see. The point is that people often go searching for beautiful experiences and feel that they need to be halfway around the world to do this! The reality is that there are beautiful places in every country, you just have to go looking for them and a road trip is the best way to uncover these special places.
You can stop when you want
There is no truer freedom than being able to stop wherever you want to and a road trip gives you this absolutely amazing freedom to stop and do the things that you want to do. Buses, trains and planes are great, but you miss everything in between and it is a much more pure experience to see everything along the way. I don’t like the feeling of being in a plane for a few hours and then being in a totally different country. If you drive you see how everything develops into another country and it really is a beautiful experience.
There is no such thing as a wrong turn
In your everyday life you may take a wrong turn and it will mean that you lose time and become lost, when you take a roadtrip and do this it simply means more to experience. If you travel the road less traveled you are much more likely to see some unique things compared to others that reached the same destination. Wrong turns are not wrong, they are just an “alternative” way of getting there!
