”I used to love the roads like blood loves veins”. Someone sent me a postcard with that quote on it and it is so true. There is nothing like packing up the car and leaving, just driving anywhere. For me the travelling part is intimately linked with the freedom of open windows, great music and taking the time to look at the scenery. Impromptu stops on the way. Road side stalls and animals. Not being too sure that you are taking the right highway but who cares because you’ll get there eventually. Our road trips are a little different now that we have kids, but they are always a synonym of vacation and taking life as it comes.
