A good road trip can be so rewarding to you mentally and physically. Short trips will clear your mind from all of the stresses of your daily life and encourage you to walk, swim, shop or whatever comes your way. Luckily, we owned a vehicle in Mexico City and often left the Big Enchilada, as some call it, to venture out to small, magical towns nearby where the locals moved slower, ate well and enjoyed the fresh air. There is still so much for me to explore by car in the U.S., although I have gone cross-country a few times. Time to plan a road trip by the ocean for a quick pose!
