Is your day-to-day routine starting to get to you? Looking for an adventure vacation? If so, a good road trip is the perfect cure for restlessness. There's nothing quite like getting away from it all on the open road - you can explore new cities, enjoy the scenery and forget your everyday concerns. But as relaxing as a road trip sounds, it's easy for a simple vacation to go awry.
