Flying is obviously the most convenient way to travel, and it’s definitely the way to go if you just want to spend as much time as possible relaxing on a beach before returning to the real world. That being said, there’s still nothing like a good road trip. Not only do they let you avoid the hassel of getting strip-searched at airport security and the indignity of being treated like cattle on the actual plane (assuming you can only afford to fly coach), but road trips also give you a chance to take in the scenery. And, if you take your road trips in the right places, that scenery can be downright breathtaking.
Today, in case you’re starting to think about your next vacation (like me), I present you with this list of some of the world’s most scenic roads. If you live in North America, like me, some of them will be pretty difficult to get to. And of course, even if you like to take trips to the other side of the globe, you might still be put off by the prospect of driving around in the middle of nowhere in, say, Pakistan. However, some of these places are considerably easier to get to and in stable, non-autocratic countries, so it’s definitely worth a look.
So, ready to add a few places to your travel bucket list? Great. Let’s get started.
