For anyone who loves to drive and who loves to travel, there are few holiday concepts more appealing than the long road trip. The best thing about a driving holiday is the incredible sense of freedom that comes with taking to the open road and just following the brease. It can be a daunting thing to do though, driving in another country where you dont know the rules or the customs, but it is well worth taking the plunge and opening yourself up to the experience. Here are 3 ideas for an incredible trip: 1. France Certain parts of Europe are truly a drivers paradise; the roads are all well-built, flat and beautifully curved. I especially recommend a jaunt through the French Alps the constant hair pin bends and stunning scenery is sure to inspire you whilst simultaneously testing your bravery. As an alternative, why not take a stylish trip down the cosmopolitan roads running along the golden beaches of the south coast in a classic sports car? Areas such as Monaco are a great place to go if you want to enjoy living the highlife for a few days. 2. Route 66 If sports cars and sweeping bends arent your thing then maybe the thought of cruising along endless highways with a V8 roaring in the background grabs you a little better. If that is the case then taking an American muscle car for a long trip across America is probably the ultimate experience. It goes without saying of course the route 66 is the must take journey and one that every driver should make. 3. Africa Africa is the place to drive if you love to soak in expansive scenery. Its not a place to take nice sports cars, but it is a wonderful place to take a well-equipped four by four a tent and a sense of adventure. The vastness of Africa will truly take your breath away and if you love to go off the beaten track this is the holiday adventure for you. A few other ideas: There are plenty of places in the world that are a joy to drive around and there is something for everyone, the above are just a few suggestions, but dont be afraid to explore the possibilities!
