I learnt some interesting things over the past few days:

  • The best vehicle in which to have a road trip is a kombi van.
  • The best song to play whilst riding in a kombi van is “Land Down Under”.
  • Uncertainty as to whether your vehicle of choice will even make the distance only adds to the excitement.
  • Petrol stations are always slightly further apart than you were expecting.
  • One should always try not to be the only person going on the trip who can actually drive.

I hold these truths to be self-evident.
