The feeling of a road trip

When I was a kid I enjoyed traveling with my family, there was always a sense of freedom and exhilaration that came from hitting the road with them. I felt free from the big city. There was always less noise and more peace. The peace always felt like the feeling of the cool wind against my face as I titled my head out the window and closed my eyes. And as I opened my eyes again all I could see for miles would be open terrain. Even when we were to enter some town filled by country bumpkins I would be still stuck in a moment of purely pleasure.
I remember how we would just pack a much of randomness and lob it into the trunk of the car. There was no caravan or truck at that. I can’t even remember if we booked any hotels or carried insurance at that time. As for today, it’s a good idea to have insurance like consider Caravan Insurance. In this day of age we are to follow a schedule and develop a plan of action. Where back in the day, it was all about, “Let’s just go!”
I think that’s one of the reasons why now, I have no fear to be surrounded by open land or road. I could drive for miles and just feel free without feeling any type of fear. All worries would leave the mind and all possibilities would enter. As most people say to me “wow how do you just go, like that.” As far as I recall I never thought of it, like that. I thought of it as life. There is so much to see and learn, why not just “Go!” I always saw the world as a wonderland, where fun never actually has to end. It’s the same as a road trip, that feeling of peace. It’s always there; you just have to make time for it. The most important thing I believe in is live life to the fullest!
