6 Definite Signs You Need To Take A Road Trip Soon

Sometimes you just know it’s about time for a road trip, especially in the spring when you’ve been stuck inside for too long and can’t wait to get out and soak in the warmer weather.  If any of these things ring true for you, it may be time to just hit the road already.

1. You’ve been taking the scenic route to the grocery store.

Because the journey is just as much of an experience as the destination, even if you’re only going to get more bread and wine.

2. You have been daydreaming about where you want to go next.
