Travelling and road trips are something that folks enjoy to satiate their inner wanderlust. In the hectic schedule of our daily lives, the thought of travelling with friends to take the much-needed respite and rejuvenate ourselves brings a smile on our face.
Be it taking out time for yourself, indulgence in leisure activities, adventure sports or simply sky gazing on a sea beach at night, or snow-clad mountain peaks and lush valleys, each place has something new to offer. It is like each of these places had their own tales to narrate.
Travelling is a fulfilling experience in many ways and one that is recreational as well as informative. We learn equally from interactions and practical experiences as we learn from books. Traveling broadens our horizon and makes us appreciate the breathtaking diversity of our world.
There is a good news for road-trip enthusiasts: A new book has been released that features 50 greatest road trips on earth. The book includes multiple countries, from Vietnam to Ireland to the USA.
Australia’s iconic great ocean road and USA’s popular highway 66 are included in the book.
Highway 66 is a 4,000 km highway in the US that connects the state of Illinois in the Midwest to California on the Pacific coast.
The usage of the highway decreased in the 1980s when new freeways and interstate highways were constructed. But highway 66 has witnessed a renewed popularity amongst those who want to travel across the USA by road. The highway trail is particularly popular with foreign tourists.
The book also includes first-hand accounts by travel writers and almost 200 road trips covering the diverse geography of our world.
