Have you ever caught yourself during your ride to work thinking that you could be somewhere else at that very moment? Have you imagined that you’re driving in the beautiful countryside instead along the clogged streets of your city? According to a survey commissioned by an affordable car hire company, AutoEurope, drivers clock up 166 miles in a week on average. This distance could take you to many different landmarks, historic and holiday destinations if you drove abroad compared to just using your car to commute in the UK.
Our trips begin in our minds, so let’s start from there. Imagine where you would like to be driving in your car, who would be sitting next to you and what countryside you would be looking at with a smile on your face. Now, take that and add166 miles to it. This distance accounts for a few-day trip in France, Spain or Italy, for example. With just a few thoughts we transcend to sun-bathed coast where we’re enjoying an afternoon ride by the sea… Let’s go on a virtual road trip that one day can turn into a real one.
