Nothing Beats a Road Trip

7:58:00 AM

Travelling and seeing the world is on most people’s bucket list. We all want to experience something authentically exotic and rugged. Be it, visiting temples in the foothills of the Himalayas, or breathing in the soil rich air of the rainforest in British Columbia, or experiencing the hustle and bustle of the street markets in South East Asia, we all have something we want to see and do. Usually, we will fly to a destination and look about a city or a part of the world we are interested in and fly back, but this means missing out on many less travelled destinations.

To truly see and experience a country, its landscape, terrain, countryside, culture, wildlife, people, you need to get out of the cities and away from the beaches and travel by car absorbing the scenes around you. This means that all you need to do is to hire a car, and away you go.

Here are some fantastic road trips you must try:

Perth, Australia.

There is a terrific one-week road trip in Perth where you can explore some of the best-kept secrets of the land down under. Drive along the open road, through the desert, and see a kangaroo in its natural habitat. All you have to do is hire a car from Burswood Car Rentals car hire promo and feel that freedom only driving can give you.

The Ring Road, Iceland.

To develop a real feel for the land of fire and ice, why not take some time out to travel the 828 mile long Ring Road tour. The trip starts and ends in Reykjavik and along the way you will see the Golden Circle, the scenic Snaesfellsnes peninsula, with its lava fields, and lava tube caves.

If you are a bit of an adventurer, you will want to stop and explore these marvels of nature, so get out and hike the rugged terrain. You will also be able to stop wherever you want and stare up at the Northern Lights. Hiring a car is easy, and gets you to places you would never usually go.

The Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland.

Ireland is not called the Emerald Isle for no reason and to truly experience why you need to get in your car and travel along the Wild Atlantic Way. You could travel from the Northern Headlands with its rugged and craggy beauty, to the Haven Coast in the south where you can explore the ancient tombs. In a car, you can become one with the country and begin to understand the land and its people in a way you couldn’t if you flew into a particular area and stayed there.

There is nothing quite like allowing the road to take you to places you never normally would go. You don’t need to travel the beaten track, take back roads, and diversions wherever and whenever you like. Driving through a country nourishes the soul in a way that flying in and out of a bust airport is wholly unable to do. Road trips allow you to gain a new perspective on the world around us with all its vastness and beauty.
