Do you love them or hate them? Tell us your stories.
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.

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.
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!
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.
We glide from side to side the records of our huge country and carry to you the twenty five best road trips that you should get at smallest amount once in your life.

I love everything about roadtrips ... from all the planning to coming home and sharing!
The planning part is part of my next career...
I Still Love a Road Trip..Road trips are an awesome way to create lasting memories.
i excited when ever some one offer me a road trip.
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.
