Photo of the day: VW road trip
Who doesn't want to roll around England's countryside in a VW van, stopping to read and set up camp between lush rolling hills? Sometimes the idea of living by way of van, by way of the road, seems too far-fetched to travel-loving dreamers out there. I'm here to tell you... it is not far-fetched! Buy a van! Move into it! Drive! Explore! Use exclamation marks as often as possible; it will show people precisely how happy you are to be traveling this way!
This shot was taken by photographer/Flickr user, Samuel Bradley in Cumbria, England. I love it because it does seem to embody the spirit of traveling via road tripping. I've spent much of my time on the road and I suppose one of the reasons this photo excited me is because I'm about to start living on the road again starting at the end of October. I can't wait to re-embrace the living-in-the-van lifestyle. It's not for everyone, granted, but it is positively for me.
