Self-Drive, Andes Region, Bolivia

Freedom on the Road

Turn the key. Put the music on. Roll down the windows and drive.

Family road trips – less of a traditional holiday, more of a small group expedition.

The opportunity of total freedom: ‘To map’ or ‘Not to map’. To decide: When to go left or right, when to put foot or when to just stop and look. Not so much ‘when will we get there’ as ‘where shall we go next’, immerse yourselves in silly games, sorting out playlists, snoozing, reading, spotting, singing and just seeing the world your way. Whatever the destination, the road is yours.
Turn the key. Put the music on. Roll down the windows and drive.
