Does the idea of a well planned road trip exploring a bucket list destination filled with experiences of a lifetime sound like your kind of vacation? The thrill of being on the open road calling your name? Whether it’s a grand month long exploration of the wild wild west, a two week RV adventure across New Zealand or a whirlwind four day tour of the Scottish Highlands, road tripping provides a unique window to exploring our world.
Our family travels often include road trips, be it a two week journey, or an extended weekend. Road trips provide wonderful opportunities for us to reconnect from our hectic, crazy busy, day-to-day life. No sporting events to rush off to, school work to be completed, nor work deadlines to be met. Just us and the open road ahead. So what’s on this family summer road trip agenda? Check it out!
A Family Summer Adventure Begins
The time has arrived! Our bags are packed, hotels and experiences booked. Our fight has departed, and we are off for our 2017 family summer vacation. This year’s big adventure will find us in Great Britain for both city and countryside explorations. It will truly be a planes, trains, and automobiles vacation, with a few rides on the London Tube too!
I can’t wait to share with everyone the adventures we have along the way, but until such time, here’s a snapshot of our journey, and a few experiences on our trip agenda.
- London Bridges, Towers, Museums and Pubs
- Edinburgh Castles, Ghosts and Underground Secrets
- Cairngorms National Park Hiking & Biking
- Scotland’s Border Abbeys Walk and Ruins Explorations
- North England’s Hadrian’s Wall Hiking and Ancient Experiences
Our days will find us exploring several classic points of interest as well as a few off the beaten path destinations. Just how we like to explore! Our adventures will be reached by airplane, train, tube, car, on foot and on bike, each one being equal parts a means to arrival, and an integral experience of the overall journey.
Family Summer Road Trip Inspirations
This year’s family vacation once again includes a road trip, this time across central Scotland. Hitting the countryside after a week exploring London and Edinburgh is the perfect way to complete our two week adventure in Great Britain. Our road trip will take us from Edinburgh into Scotland’s Cairngorms National Park, then south to the Scottish Borders and Hadrian’s Wall, and on back into Edinburgh. Six days of road trip fun, here we come!
