    Restarting an old tradition solo this time

    every Super Bowl I pack my bags & head to Florida for a month it's a nice way to make the winter seam shorter, when they start talking playoffs I think to myself soon I'll be blazing in the sun ;)

    Peace and Tranquility

    My favorite annual road trip is to Door County, WI in the fall.  It's a short road trip, maybe 2 hours one way, but one of the most gorgeous spectacles known to man.  The Bay of Green Bay and Lake Michigan, high cliffs, brilliant colors of fall, cherry picking...

    Going on a road trip with one other person

    seems amazing, because even though you may meet new people, you two will share the same experiences and strengthen your connection while doing so.

    I Love to Explore New Place...

    I love to explore new places, and doing that in a car is the easiest way, but to be honest, I afraid of being in cars.  So roadtrips are fun, but bittersweet.

    I love to take random trips, even if its to someplace I've already been. I'll just grab some jammies, get some gas and round up some friends and head out. I once went on a Roadtrip to the capitol building at like 10 pm and we had to be back by 2 pm the next day for work. I enjoy...

    Getting out of town for a

    while is always the best cure for whatever ails me. I'll even go on trips all by myself. In fact, I'm known for it.

    A Road Trip To Nowhere.

    no worries, no destination in mind, just the open road, a clear sky and 4 good tires hugging the road. I would not use a GPS or a map.  I want to travel and see what is out there and where the road goes.  I want to find the places where "You can't hear me ...

    Cross country road trips have been some of the

    best times of my life!! Choosing a direction each morning never knowing where I may end up was entirely exciting.

    Just looking out the window,

    gazing at the open fields and feeling the breeze gust my skin. Watching the sunset go by, dozing in the sound of chill pop music in the background as the 70-mph vehicle drives down the road. And best of all visiting new places and experiencing new things :)

    I used to take road trips all the time with

    family or friends. Now I mostly travel for work and that requires flying to get there quickly. The beauty of a road trip is that the trip is as good as the destination

    I love the road. My dad probably has a big

    influence in this. If I just know how to drive, i could have gone somewhere else every weekend with family and friends. Haha. I could just go any where and eat a good food somewhere else, in the middle of the night. I miss how my dad would wake us up at 3 in the morning just...

    From Point A To Point B

     Just the thought of getting into a car, without a pre planned destination, stimulates the sense. A spontaneous jaunt to anywhere, is very intriguing. I can even go for a half an hour drive, and find something exciting in it. The only money you need is for gas, or food. The...

    A Dream

    Anywhere, Any Time.

    I love the feeling in my spirit when I'm getting ready for a road trip.  There's an earnestness to the experience that heightens my senses. I am eager for the feel of road passing beneath my feet.  I do love to walk, but there's power in travelling faster than I could myself...

    Do You Use Your Satellite Navigation System To Educate Yourself?

    An option on my TomTom is the shortest route. It isn't by any means the quickest route but it is an education. I will give you this one example and let you decide for yourself. If you leave Dover in England by car you are likely to be taking a ferry or train to France and the...
