We love a road trip. The feeling of wind in our receding hair. The joy of crossing wide open spaces. The freedom to be where we want, when we want.

A well-crafted road trip enables you to beat the crowds at that busy tourist spot, catch sunrise and sunset and pack a little more into each day. But it also allows you to experience the best a country has to offer and get a little further off the beaten track.

We’ve driven across the deserts of Namibia, around the souks and medinas of Morocco and through rivers in Iceland. We’ve changed flat tyres in Etosha and unsuccessfully navigated our way out of Istanbul.

Here are some adventures for the semi-adventurous like us.
