Below is a list of road trips which will make you fall in love with endless highways and looking out the car window.

Most commutes are necessary evils. Slowly driving to work through a myriad of traffic and red lights; sitting on a smothering tram on the way to a business meeting; driving on endless thirty miles per hour roads to get to the cinema to see “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”.

However, there are some occasions when the journey is the most enjoyable part of your day. Below is a list of road trips which will make you fall in love with endless highways and looking out the car window.
