Getting to your destination doesn’t need to be a frantic rush. Why not get off the motorway, and take a relaxing drive through pretty back roads, peaceful villages, and stunning scenery. Road Trip will seek out those magical drives ‘off the beaten track’ that really give you the true feel of a country. Take your time to wander through a local market, have lunch in a picturesque riverside restaurant, and take your breath away with those little known mountain passes. Of course, if you really prefer the motorway, that’s up to you – but we know where we’d rather be! So forget the SatNav, all you need are your car keys, a camera, and Road Trip.
