Say that five times, fast…
After making the journey from London all the way to Cesenatico, via Lake Como and then back again via Evian-les-Bains… a round road trip taking over 30 hours, I feel well prepared to offer up my 5 tips for a fun + foolproof road trip! With a bit of planning, this stage can be enjoyed almost as much as the destinations you are trying to reach! Caffeine and a sense of humour, very much required.
And there you have it! If you are tentative about taking a road trip somewhere, don’t be, it’s awesome! There’s something so cool about watching the world change as you drive through it, especially if your route takes you through the mountains at any point! It’s also pretty awesome to just be able to throw things in the car (including the dogs!) without worrying about excess baggage and liquids and customs and so on and so forth.
Passing through 5 countries in one day (England, France, Germany, Switzerland and Italy) definitely made me feel like the world was much smaller and more accessible than I had previously thought. Plus when you’ve done it once and realise it’s really not a big deal you will be itching to load up the car and set off every time you spy a gap in your diary.
