Road Travel – A Unique Experience for Your Family
No travel plans for the family this summer? Why not differ from the monotony of the usual planning for once and plan a trip by road? You might now think, ‘Why would anyone go for a road trip leaving the luxury of the train and plane?’ But once a road trip has been meticulously planned, you can give your family the most memorable travel they’ve ever had.
Paying attention to certain details can make your plans to travel by road comfortable. Consult a good road map to plan the route you would like to take. Once the route is decided, chalk out a detailed plan. Get the necessary booking done. Get your vehicle serviced so that it gives you no trouble on the way. Get all the travel papers ready. Make an itinerary with your family. Decide on the distance you would like to cover each day. If you would rather avoid night driving get the necessary hotel bookings done well in advance. Stock up on enough food, games, CDs etc to keep your children amused. Once these basic preparations are done, you can be ready for a tryst with the road.
Road travel always has a feeling of adventure associated with it. You don’t have an inkling of what is in store for you. Travel by road opens up infinite possibilities of seeing nature at its best. You can just stop and enjoy the beautiful scenery you pass by, or you could just stop for some refreshments tea and stretch a bit. You can get to see all those small and remarkable details about a place that you would have missed if you had traveled by train or plane. A road journey therefore offers a refreshing change from a boring journey by train or plane.
One other luxury that road travel affords you is quality time with the family. Today everyone is so busy with their lives that they have no time to spend with each other. Traveling by road brings about a feeling of togetherness, a sense of oneness in the family. This is the only time you can get together with your family uninterrupted by television, persistent ringing door bell and telephone calls (keep your mobiles off). All are at peace and relaxing with each other, free from the humdrum of normal life.
Travel by road thus opens up before you a new aspect of life. Never did you have time to realize that nature was so beautiful. There are so many varied aspects to it that you would have appreciated them all or at least got an opportunity to enjoy them if you embark on a road journey. Approach every stretch of road with an anticipation of thrill. That is the magic of travel road.
