Why I Love a Road Trip // Reflections
There is something truly important about seeing what is in between here and there.
Seeing how the trees change. How the color of the highway differs. The names of the towns and rivers in between. The interesting people you meet or observe along the way.
Where the Southern accent starts, fades, and then doesn't exist at all.
How the food changes, and how much the portion sizes differ from one city to the next.
The towns that time forgot. Some that were left behind entirely.
A lot of self-reflection can be done there too.
Things get clearer when you're out of your element. Decisions are easily made. What's most important becomes obvious. It's easier to be grateful for what you have when you're exposed to what else exists.
Facing challenges make you stronger on the road.
Life happens on the road, when we aren't too busy to see it out there.
Have you taken road trips?
What are your favorite parts of a road trip?
