The improvised road trip

Early September, before the autumn equinox, we decided to jump in our car and head north while the light was still good, the weather pleasant and the tourists long gone – we were a bit wrong on that assumption...

We had no particular plan. We wanted to drive somewhere north, up in Canada. We did it one day at a time. Each evening we chose where the following day would take us, booked that particular night, got behind the wheel and soaked up the scenery.

Just like when we ski or bike, we were lost in the moment and forgot everything; who we were, what we did and whatever bothered us. We saw some spectacular vistas, met some interesting people, gathered a few good stories and didn't see the days and miles go by.

We can't wait till the next road trip!
