The car/driving culture is so alive and well these days compared to decades past. We owe it to easy payment plans offered by banks, high employment rates and the introduction of smaller and more affordable cars. Not backed by data but I would surmise this also increases Juan's penchant for road trips. Why don't we share our recently concluded or planned travels along with tips, tricks, hacks and any other helpful and interesting info. Doesn't have to be cross-country... as long as it's long and fun. I'll start. I plan to take my wife and kids to Baguio this Christmas and this is our planned route with stop overs in Tacloban, Mt Mayon, Quezon, Manila and San Fernando. And then on the way back... Still working out the specific details on where to stay, where to cross, how to much to prepare and the stop overs on the way back to Cebu.
