    The best vacation I did up to date was a drive around Australia... My boss told me in 2003 that I either took my accumulated overtime or forfeit them... Easy choice to make... so I cleared my calendar for 4 months, booked a ticket to Sydney and bought my self a car... 4...

    I find any excuse to go

    for a long drive. I love to explore and will take any road. The old saying is true, "it's not the destination that's important, Its the journey!"

    I love to drive out to my Aunt's place.

    When I do it alone I can sing to the radio for a few hours and enjoy the scenery be with my own thoughts awhile. I like long drives with people too just depends on the company. We can play car games like the animal game and have some close time together. It can be pretty...

    As long as I'm not the one driving,

    because I tend to get sleepy. I enjoy just staring out the window and watching the world as we drive through it, past it, to it, whatever.

    Perfect

    driving is a versatile pastime. there are fast drives for getting out aggression and frustration. there are slow, scenic drives when one needs a little peace and serenity. a driver bonds to their car when they find the right one, and sometimes that connection is all you...

    I've only had a couple of boyfriends

    who have had nice cars. I tend to find guys who use public transport like me, so we use the trains or the buses to get around here.It's easy enough, and more sensible, in places like Paris and London, even Flensburg, but here in Le Havre? My last boyfriend Otto had a car. A...

    A road trip sounds great right now!

    I rarely even think about time away from my daughter but a long weekend trip to anywhere, just me, feels like just what I need!

    That's my favorite kind of thing to do

    when nothing else is a possibility. I like to go on long car rides with my iPod and ear buds and watch the world pass me by while listening to my music. It always helps when I need to clear my mind. It's also so relaxing. I don't know, maybe that's just me.

    Horizons

    whether its the car I'm driving, where I'm going, what's playing on the stereo, or the person sitting next to me - many of the best times in my life have involved a car somehow. There is nothing like just setting out on the open road with someone special to somewhere special or...

    The Thinking Road

    I can think back and remember the long drives I took...oblivious to gas prices, I just wanted to think and driving down the same road that went on forever and ever was the best way to do that. I could drive for hours and not worry about getting lost. I could play song after song...

    Sometimes I just jump in the car

    and go. If I've been stressed through work and I can't sleep properly, I jump in the car. Maybe at two or three in the morning. And just go. Never know where I'll end up. But it's fun overlooking the sea at five in the morning. Really relaxes me.

    Rolling early every morning catching the dawn

    makes this time wasted much more enjoyable , and as the day begins grab another gear cuz it a long ways to go . But If the dawning of a new day could last forever I'd drive it with a smile on my face .

    Road Trips

    I daydream about taking a long drive in a car

    that is my own to no where in particular. Just to drive and see the open road. Blast my favorite songs and sing at the top of my lungs. Stop wherever I please and just enjoy nature. I just want a chance to be free and that's exactly how I feel when I'm on a long drive.

    that I'm weird because I love long car journeys. For instance ;we recently drove to wales from London, which took us 5 hours. I was really looking forward to going, but not because of the countryside. The drive was what I was looking forward to most ;3. I guess it was because it...

    384 Miles Each Way

    When I was in college I started dating a girl I met over a summer who lived 384 miles away from me. That's 6 1/2 hours, two tanks of gas ($40 at the time), and $12.50 in tolls -- each way. I would drive up at least once every two weeks for the weekend. Each drive I would play...

    Spontaneous Road Trips

    There something about long drives.
