Road Trip Bucket List


Can anyone here remember that noughties chick flick 'Crossroads' with Britney Spears? Well that movie had me dreaming of one day going on a big American road trip since I was about 12. From a young age I've always wanted to drive. We would often take long trips as a family which would consist of sometimes 7 hours worth of travelling, but it never phased me. I wasn't one of those little kids in films screaming 'are we there yet?' Instead, I would spend hours looking out of the window, taking in all scenery and being mesmerised by places I hadn't seen before. I used to think 'one day I can drive places like this myself' and now aged 25 and with a driving license, I can.

Today I have teamed up with E-Shores to celebrate Route 66's 90th birthday and to bring you my road trip bucket list. They kindly provided me with a little road trip kit to pimp out my car and some inspiration for my bucket list.

Route 66

First on the list is Route 66, the ultimate American road trip, Route 66 starts from Chicago, passing by Illinois, Missouri, and Oklahoma and finishes in LA. On route you can see some amazing sights and stop at some beautiful places such as the Grand Canyon, the Nevada dessert and gamble your way through Las Vegas. It's the ideal road trip for those wanting to live out their favourite American road trip fantasies and is a great way to see the country.

The Amalfi Coast, Italy

Italy is a country that I've always wanted to visit and the Amalfi route offers breathtaking views of Italy's most scenic coastlines the Sorrento Peneinsula near Naples. This route passes through the traditional Italian towns of Salerno, Ravello, Almalfi, passing along the cliffs situated highly above the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Almalfi route is considered so beautiful that in 1996 it was made a World Heritage Site.

Ireland's Atlantic Way

Situated a little bit closer home and just a short ferry away is Ireland's Atlantic Way. Ireland's Atlantic Way covers 1,500 miles of land from Inishowen Peninsula calling at towns such as Donegal, Ballina, Westport, Galway, the Shannon River, Kinmare and Kinsale. This route is great for those looking to learn more about the Irish heritage and language, maybe try a few pints of Guinness or a glass or two of whiskey (when you're not driving of course) and visit historical sites that are hundreds of years old. This will probably be my first road trip as my husband is Irish and keen to learn more about his roots, plus I can take my little car over on the ferry.
