A road trip is an adventure.
It might not be everyone’s cup of tea.
But is is ours.
After last year’s road trip through Denmark and Sweden we decided to go South this year.
Last year we drove to and from Scandinavia in one go. That was a bit stressful for me since I am the only driver and handling more that 5 hours behind the wheel in one session is not good for my stress and happiness levels 🙂
So this time, we decided to actually stop more often on the way to our Spanish destination and see some places in France we usually pass by thinking ‘we should visit here some day’.
Some day had finally come.
Our very last stop on the way home was in Orleans where we stayed at the Ibis Orleans Sud for our last night before heading home.
All in all we drove more than 4000 km and set up and broke down our tent 5 times. When I asked the kids what they liked the most it was definitely Ferrari Land and the amusement parks (they are that age you know…), the ham and the camping in Royat and Lacanau.
They did not like setting up and breaking down the tent.
So next time we do a road trip, we will do less stops and longer stays. Next year however, we are looking at a different kind of road trip. At the moment we are dithering between Bali, Florida and South America.
