we saw some of the coolest (and some of the most boring) landscapes and sights along the way. driving together gave us way more flexibility to act on a whim & stop, see and stay where ever we wanted.
when it comes to getting from point a to point b, a. and i couldn't be more opposite. he just wants to get there. head down, pedal to the metal, refuel when the car gasses up, kinda go. which to me, sounds miserable. i on the other hand, love to take my time, stop for every scenic overpass, tourist trap, unique shop & yummy bakery. this kinda road tripping would have taken us months to cross the continental u.s. so we compromised.
