“Because the greatest part of a road trip isn’t arriving at your destination. It’s all the wild stuff that happens along the way”.
I love that quote and the above photo (both of which are on my About Page). It sums up my philosophy.
Loving life on and off the tracks with plenty of thrills and spills along the way is my motto, even though sometimes it means I get mud in my face!
I’m not always on the road, far from it, but when we have a spare weekend, we’ll hook up the camper and head off. I know I’ve said it before, but I think I must have been a gypsy in a past life!
We’re nearly half way through the year and we’ve enjoyed camping trips to Yanakie, Walwa, Jamieson, the Great Ocean Road, the Otways and the High Country.
Today we headed to the Merindoc Cellar Door and Bistro in the hills near Heathcote where I had the best wood fired pizza ever! Sometimes those last minute day trips can be just as good.
Along the way there are always laughs, both on the road and off.
Like yesterday when I heard a skit that really made my day.
Have a listen to this prank call that so tickled my fancy I just had to share.
A radio station makes a prank call to a BMW dealer.
I’ll have to remind my son who’s learning to drive:
D for Day mode
N for Night mode
R for Race mode
Good thing he’s clued up and he knows the automatic transmission is really D for Drive, N for Neutral, R for Reverse. And P for Pass (haha).
I must have been in a warped mood, I just loved it.
It makes me want to hit the road again. Even the cooler weather isn’t a deterrent, though, as hubby is working in Tasmania next week, my wonderlusting will have to wait, at least for the time being.
Enjoy your trips, whether it’s to a far flung destination or a trip down the street to a local cafe.
Hmm, anyone want to join me?
Enjoy it all as you never know what you’ll find, who you’ll meet and the delights you’ll eat.
Remember that road trips aren’t necessarily measured by miles but moments so be sure you’re making lots of memorable ones.
Life is short
and take that trip.
