Packed with photos and personal experiences, this inspiring and practical book also has key tips for enhancing every part of your trip, from getting out the door (with essential tips on packing and eating on the road--including recipes for car snacks) to taking in new experiences (with ideas for journaling and photographing) and bringing memories from the road back home (through creative collecting). 

Road Trips is the perfect guide to inspire a life of travel. Enrich your life, deepen your relationships, and discover the world around you--it's all just a road trip away.
