Interesting Things to See on a Road Trip

Brianna Krueger's picture

As an amateur photographer, I always have my camera on me. I never know when I'll see something that strikes my fancy, or where I'll be when such fancy is struck. Sometimes you see things worth capturing in the least likely place…such as from your passenger seat in a car during a fourteen hour 'no stops unless the car is out of gas' road trip…which means taking a picture while in motion. Some things are just too good to pass up, even at seventy miles an hour.

European travel is glorious in any form. The food, sights, arts, culture, languages, vistas, and new friends just make it such an enjoyable experience.

Considered by many to be the top driving tour in Europe, and perhaps even one of the top three in the world (next to Australia’s Great Ocean Road or California’s Highway 1), Germany’s Alpine Road stretches over 450 kilometres through the Alps. There’s no real reason to do this drive… it’s a drive for the hell of it, winding through the mountains, tiny German towns, and castles along the way. Why not?

For the Love of Road Trips

Schools in the US are mostly stationary. Students, staff, and teachers enter the building in the morning and leave at the end of the day. If we’re lucky, we may grab some much needed outdoor air and vitamin D at lunchtime or recess, but for the majority of minutes of each day, we’re inside in the same place. Travel changes this. Travel lends that added element of the unknown to the constant of the classroom. For many of us, that unknown becomes a dreaded, scary place.

When it comes to road trips in Europe, it’s hard to find something that feels unique. As one of the most touristy locations on the planet, Europe has been done, and done over again. It’s earned its reputation, of course, as a treasure trove of art, food, and culture. But how can you road trip Europe and come home having experienced something new? Look no further. We have just the trip for you.
