Or are you a zoom-up-the-highway kinda person?
There's something to be said about getting there sooner (especially when you leave the house late which always seems to be the case with us) but for the most part we take the scenic route.
We'd be crazy not to with all this goodness around us here in Provence.
Our 6 yr old sometimes gets carsick, the poor poppet. After the Great Corsican Vomiting Incident of 2010 we take the highway if she's having a bad time of it.
Those roads sure are windy in Corsica (and devastatingly beautiful). She'd told us she was feeling ill but we were only 10 kms away from the village where we were stopping for lunch, so we decided to push on.
Just thought I'd share that.
But usually, we take the backroads. Have to enjoy the journey, right?
Linking up with Design Mom's Love the Place You Live, where you can find more travel stories (hopefully with less vomit).
