The thing we love most about visiting a new place is finding a high vantage point and taking in the view. There’s something about being able to look out over a landscape, be it from a building, mountain, train, plane or car, that fills us with immense joy and a sense of freedom. It’s even more fun if you can spot places from your vantage point and then make moves towards them. That’s probably one of the biggest attractions of road trips: that feeling of coming around the bend and seeing your destination in front of you, slowly growing larger.
Undoubtedly, this is more fun when you can experience it in real life, but to simulate the feeling and maybe make you dream a little, we’ve gathered some images of fantastic scenic drives from around the world. Perhaps to serve as inspiration for your next holiday?
