It’s holiday season (at least in my country) and there are so many things to do, so many places to see and so many options on how to do that. I know many people prefer to travel by plane, but personally I think that the best way to visit a country is by taking a roadtrip.
Here are 10 reasons why.
Roadtrips are cheaper especially if you travel with all your friends and “split the bill”.
Roadtrips allow you to stop whenever you want, wherever you want and as often as you want, whether you want to visit something or just take a break from the road.
Roadtrips should be seen as an adventure because that’s what they are. Something exiciting is always going to happen and you’re always going to learn something new.
Spontaneity goes hand in hand with flexibility. As I mentioned before, roadtrips allow you to be flexible, which allows you to be more spontaneous and visit that place your friend told you about or just drink coffee in a town you’ve never been to before.
When you’re with your car you don’t really have a schedule. You can make one but it’s not necessary to strictly follow it.
Another advantage that roadtrips have, is the fact that you can pack more than you can if you’re travelling by plane or by train.
7. Bonding experience
Roadtrips are the perfect way to bond with your friends or with your family. When you’re in the same car with the same people for hours, it’s impossible not to bond in a way or another.
By camping I don’t strictly mean putting up your tent, but also to those little motels that you find by chance and you just fall in love with.
One thing that you must remember when it comes to roadtrips that it’s not about the destination but the journey.
10. Sense of achievement
At the end of a roadtrip no matter how long or short you will always feel like you have achieved something, like you learned new things about yourself, your friends and the places you saw. Some of them will be become a second home.
There are a lot of reasons why roadtrips are a good idea but the main reason are the beautiful memories that come with it.
Remember, it’s all about being happy!
