Life: Your Favourite Road Trip Destination?
If I gave you the keys to my (rad) car, a nicely packed suitcase, a week off and my credit card, where would you road trip to? Do you have a favourite place you love to visit? Or is there somewhere you’ve been meaning to check out? If you’ve got carte blanche to drive anywhere you like, where is that place?
For me, it’s hard to choose. Maybe it’s like that for you too. I am Melbourne based, and kids and pets mean I don’t want to venture TOO far from home, lest disaster rain down. With that in mind, here are my favourite places to trip to. These are the places where memories have been made, people! The places that are etched into our families psyche and stamped FUN TIMES!
1. Sandy Point
These are our favourite places for all kinds of reasons. We’ve had lovely times there. Evenings of cards, board games, reading aloud or nicely wrangling wombats. Mornings of bottomless cups of freshly brewed coffee, egg and bacon sandwiches and beachy views. Mid-morning fry ups. Cold feet on hot sand. Fish and chips and salty lips. Days filled with beachy walks, ice clinking in tumblers, endless rounds of sandwiches and cricket on crunchy grass or wet sand. Piles of thongs outside the back door/tent door. Leisurely icy poles. Banana lounges casting shadows on the deck. Fly slapping, towel flapping, shore lapping good times.
How about you? Where do you love to go? What’s your favourite road trip destination?
