So my sister and I have been on plenty of road trips together. I would say we are pretty organized and plan everything out ahead of time. We got hotels booked, rental cars taken care of, and arrival times set. We just have one problem... our damn pit stops.
Would you consider this a bad thing? Well, if you aren't on a time crunch to get somewhere, I would take as many pit stops as you possibly can. I've seen the most beautiful views, eaten the most delicious foods, met the most interesting people, and had the experiences of my life because of a simple pit stop along the way.
Like this one for instance - as my sister and I were driving down the highway, we noticed a sign that said "scenic view". We've passed many of these signs on the way, but for some reason we decided to pull over and check this one out. What is 10-15 minutes gonna do, right?
An hour later....
After seeing a view like this, do you think we keep on driving past these other "scenic view" signs? Absolutely not. Our pit stops are turning into short term visits, which turn into day trips, which stop us from doing whatever we are planning on doing that day.
At least we are taking pictures & making memories, right?
Another pit stop out in a private Washington apple orchard! Yes, I said private... hence my sister with that smile on her face, running through the apple orchard. No we did not get caught ;)
A field of sunflowers taller than me? We had to...
Ending with a vineyard we found in the middle of nowhere. There is always an excuse for a bottle of red wine!
