Dave and I love to get out on the open road, we prefer to stay in mom and pop hotels or bed and breakfast. We love the freedom of stopping to see something fun or unique when we come along it. Do you have any stories to tell about your road trips? Favorite drives? Scenic drives? Please share your memories. Reply to this

I think it depends on where I'm going, and with whom. Partially because I don't have a license, I'm usually along for the ride, but I'll take it as a chance to see more of the world whenever I get the chance.

The "Horror" story I remember is the following, though it gets funnier every year:
It was June of 1998, and I had just turned 11. My dad's side of the family came from Overijse in Belgium - an aunt, uncle, and two cousins of mine. We went to Washington, D.C. for about four days. On the way home, we stopped in Virginia, probably Fairfax County. There was a replica Army tank (or maybe it was real, I couldn't tell). My cousins and brother and I were playing on it, and we left the windows open a crack to air out our minivan. Big mistake. We come back after about an hour and fruit flies have invaded the car! It takes us another hour to get them all out. Very quiet trip home as we all caught our bearings. Now, though, it's really hilarious to tell. Reply to this

Funny story!

We love road trips. We regularly drive from one set of parents to another in the UK, and dream about taking to a slightly longer and more open road. The first one we did was in South Africa, where we drove the Garden Route and then through Kruger National Park. We are now planning a USA one for next year, taking in the West coast and some national parks. Ezra, we'll check out those blogs as they look like they'll be useful! Reply to this

In response to: Msg #197771 We lived in Overijse from 1984 to 1995...I worked at NATO headquarters. Overijse holds many fond memories for us. Our blogs written about the travels we took from Overijse start with Home in Overijse, Belgium from July 1984 to November 1995...lots of road trips! Reply to this

Our family loves road trips...except for our children when they were teenagers who only wanted to spend their summers with friends, or bring them along for the ride. Then we had to travel to places where they couldn't bring their friends. Rather than listing all the trips, like my post above, I will only list the Trips from where we lived since living in Belgium. They start with Home in Falls Church, Virginia from November 1995 to August 2005 and Retirement in Woodland Park Colorado. Reply to this

Road trips are the best experience. No one would say the trip was boring. We go on trips on summers. That's the time of the trips, right? I take a journal with me and record every incidents on the road. It is refreshing and it leaves us from the same old boring routine. It makes us feel we are living. We see new people, new places and new cultures. That's the best part of the trips. This summer, we did.t go anywhere. But last time, we went on a trip from Vancouver to Calgary. It was a splendid trip. My family had a wonderful time. Reply to this

I love road trips. Riding in a Bike can be very difficult, i had that experience, when my friends decided to go Darjeeling. The area of Darjeeling hill town the roads were foggy and hill cart road but there are countless tourist places views of Kanchenjunga snow peaks, Buddhist monasteries, historical churches, temples, rolling tea estates on mountain slopes, museums, parks & gardens, waterfalls and more.
