    I Want One So Badly

    I've only gone on a couple road trips with my family, but I would love to go on a really long (like multiple day) road trip with my friends or my boyfriend. I just feel like there's something so liberating about just hitting the open road without a map or any plans. I'd like to...

    Driving Without a Destination

    I can't think of a better way to spend a summer's day, than hopping in the car with someone and just driving wherever the road may take us. I have come across some amazing landscape by doing this that I probably never would have had the opportunity to see otherwise. I am kind of...

    They're so calming, but fun at the same time.

    I have this fantasy that one day I'll go around and pick up all my friends that live in different states and we'll just drive and have fun. ☺

    The Open Highway

    I am soon to be on the highway, which I missed with an intensity, brought on stronger as the long winter months lie in darkness. I cannot go a year without a roadtrip, a flight for me is only a destination, suspended in air is missing contact with the in between, the gems and...

    Pacific Coast Highway through Big Sur and the Blue Ridge parkway (nice this time of year with the leaves changing) are my favorite places to drive!

    Looking so forward to my next trip in 2 weeks

    which is driving from my home in Denver to San Francisco! Did this trip last year, and while San Francisco was awesome, the trip home through the Sierras was not. Stuck in a snow storm for 6 hours! Have to make sure I check the weather and road conditions this time..

    So a few days ago I went to la to take my

    little cousin to an audition. It wasn't the best trip ever, but the ride there was really nice. The sunsets are so beautiful.

    When I'm able to drive,

    I plan on driving up north. I live in Washington state, and plan on driving through British Columbia, into the Yukon, and head west to Alaska, and come back on a shorter route. Maybe I'll do others in the future, but this one, I'm currently mapping out :D

    I live overseas now in the capital city of

    Taiwan. I get around just fine here without a car but I really really miss taking long road trips. A trip by train or high speed rail is just not the same.

    Queen of the Road

    I just love driving period.  Driving seems to reduce my stress.  Whenever I have a lot on my mind I will just drive aimlessly.  But, with today's gas prices, that's not a wise option anymore.  Road trips are even better.  I prefer to be the driver during...
