Here’s the round-up of this week’s #TTOT on “Road Trip Travels!”

Q1 via @eurotriptips: What’s the best country to go on a roadtrip and why?

  • @CorneliusAesop: I would say the USA; its size and diversity (climate, geography, cultures, etc.) Plus it has classic interstate roadways 
  • @worldwanders: Taiwan on a scooter! Valleys, mountains, beaches, countryside, futuristic metro city….all of it
  • @monchi26: South Africa. Good infrastructure, great landscapes and sights, nice B&Bs
  • @Focaljourney: Argentina: urban, jungle, beach, glaciers, pampas, desert, mountains, waterfalls, etc. You name it, they have it 
  • @AngelFCast: Ireland. Easy to drive. Lots of great scenery. All of the hidden gems are reachable by car
  • @TravelPassionis: Australia- 4WD adventure on deserted routes 
  • @stimpressions: One of the best and unforgettable road trip is the Great Ocean Road, Australia 

An incredible road trip in Iceland, 2007

Q2 via @tide_trip: Who would you most like to go on a road trip with and why?

  • @ilivetotravel: Someone who knows how to fix a car
  • @constantramble: Anthony Bourdain because he is a sexy bad boy that loves good eats and can always appreciate local cultures 
  • @DangerousBiz: I road tripped with my sister last summer, and it was great! She’s a good road trip buddy. Plus, we had time to bond 
  • @brandon_darnell: I’d most like to road trip with friends, but save a seat for a local who wants to show us the hidden gems
  • @DeltaVacations: Alex Trebek. He’d keep me busy with trivia, and probably knows the history of everything we’d see 
  • @Hjortur: I recommend picking up hitch hikers. They’re like a box of chocolate. You never know what you’re gonna get
  • @PLUSjordi: Justin Bieber – so I could leave him in the middle of nowhere

Q3 via @lucy_c_b: Don’t go on a road trip without ____

  • @lethers: Firstly a great sense of adventure; then a great sense of humour; some flexibility; an open mind… Oh, and a camera 
  • @saraorsarah: You cannot roadtrip without decent music. Hearing Abba on loop through Kenya was a living hell
  • @Fairfield_Tours: Snacks and maps 
  • @RickGriffin: Bail/Bribe money
  • @elatlboy: Car supplies: jumper cables, bottled water, blanket, spare tire kit 
  • @Em30b430: Is it too British to say teabags?

Q4 via @ae_carhire: What are your tricks to stay entertained on a long road trip?

  • @MiniTimeFamily: Great conversation. Nothing passes the time quicker
  • @caravanofone: Screaming at the top of my lungs to my favorite songs and waving my hands out the window
  • @miss_starling: Take annoying amounts of photographs and eat copious amounts of sweeties
  • @JennySerwylo: I perfect my mad rap artist skills by rapping along to music or just making it up. My car-mates LOVE it 
  • @WanderOne: Filming myself giving running commentary. Makes for hilarious post-trip videos 
  • @Travel_Rich: Wave at pedestrians and drivers. Watch the confusion and see how many wave back
  • @WeWantSun: An audio book is also a great option for those who can’t read in the car
  • @TopdeckTravel: Singing to classic power ballads 

Q5 via @priyaganapathy: What are the most bizarre road signs you’ve come across? Show us a picture

@HW_Travel: This was taken to warn people of cassowary crossings in Cape Trib
@KyleGoesGlobal: Kusadasi, Turkey


@incoherentboy: loved this sign in LA

@Reserve123: This one’s pretty bad… what’s a driver to do?
