Your Ultimate Roadtrip -COMPETITION
For many people, a roadtrip is the ultimate travel dream. From journeys which become years long odysseys,taking in multiple countries or continents, to a day long drive along a specific route- getting behind the wheel, navigating yourself and negotiating whatever the road, and fate, throw at you is a uniquely satisfying experience.
Travel by road gives you an opportunity to really get under the skin of the region you’re travelling in. To take in the surroundings, observe the day to day goings on, and interact with the locals. Crossing a country by road gives you an understanding of that nation and its people that air travel can never match .
Roadtrips can range from carefully planned expeditions, to ‘make it up as you go’ journeys, or participation in crazy cross-country endurance races such as the Rickshaw Rally or the Trans Sahara Run.
The common denominator for all types of roadtrip is that the journey becomes more than a means of getting from A to B. As the DriverAbroad tag line says, a roadtrip turns a journey into an adventure. The memories of the actual travel between locations on a great roadtrip, often outweigh the places you visit en route!
We’d also like you to tell us about your dream roadtrip- If money and time were no object, where in the world would you love to drive? What vehicle would you do the drive in? Why would this journey be so special?
