The most recent issue of Open Road has some great road trip experiences including:
- Cairns to Karumba
- The New Zealand South Island Zig-Zag
- A Trek to the snowy Mountains
It got me thinking about my favourite road trips taken throughout my life. Having grown up in South Africa, most of my road trips as a youngster were from Johannesburg to Durban. This trip was done numerous times a year and included breathtaking vista such as:
The Valley of a Thousand Hills
As I started to ease into my twenties, the location and scope of the road trips I took were quite different in their location and scope. From an epic 30 hour bus ride through the heart of Brazil to a leisurely 3 day trip from Sydney to Melbourne. The details of one of my favourite pastimes may have changed over the years, but my fondness for them has not.
How have your road trips changed over the years and what is your all-time favourite route?
