Description
"For anyone who has fallen under its spell, a car represents freedom and adventure. For decades, the American tradition of the road trip has been bound up with the idea of new possibilities and new horizons. This book is an indispensable guide to the most beautiful, breathtaking, extraordinary, and fun road trips the world has to offer. Complete with road trips varying in length and level of challenge, from an epic transglobal route inspired by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman's Long Way Round documentary series to a two-mile blast around Monaco's F1 street circuit, there is something for any adventurer. Each entry provides information about distance, start and finish points, road surfaces, must-see stop-offs, detours, and other details to plan an unforgettable trip. Entries are organized into three categories: Scenic, Adventure, and Culture. One can marvel at the views from Cape Town's scenic Chapman's Peak Drive or central California's Pacific Coast Highway, but the thrill seeker might opt for the hair-raising ride through Montenegro's coastal mountains to reach the medieval walled town of Sveti Stefan on the Adriatic. The culture category features routes inspired by film, literature, and history: re-create Thelma and Louise's heart-pounding joyride (minus the final leap), savor Japan's "Romance Road" through unspoiled small towns, or follow Jack Kerouac's path from On the Road."--,Amazon.com.
