Longing for a road trip.
That feeling when you arrive in a remote town in the evening, wide empty roads ahead of you, one large convenience store where to stock up on all you need, the sun setting, quiet and peace.
The feeling of freedom.
That feeling is what got me dreaming of a USA road trip.
The idea started taking shape in front of a hot chocolate on a cold winter afternoon three years ago. Location: a quirky coffee place in south London. Characters: a friend and I.
That friend later dropped out but was quickly replaced by another friend who lived down under and was keen on joining me in the road adventure.
Route 66, here we come!
