Description

If you've ever dreamed of completing an epic journey behind the wheel, The 50 Greatest Road Trips is for you. Packed full of the world's most exotic, exciting and iconic road-trips, this compelling read will have you reaching for a road map. Informative first-hand accounts and engaging descriptions of routes across the Americas, Asia, Europe and Africa showcase the ultimate in car adventures.

The author is a veteran of road-tripping, having driven the iconic 19,000-mile route from North America to South America's tip, completed several dusty cross-desert voyages in the Australian outback, off-roaded in the mountain foothills of rural Cyprus, and scaled towering Saharan sand dunes in a 4x4.

Whatever part of the world you have your eye on, Sarah Woods suggests an epic road to follow. Readers are sure to feel the urge to climb into an old Chevrolet, crank up the tunes on the stereo, flick the sunroof open and settle back for one heck of a ride on the open road . . .
