A truly memorable road trip includes several distinct characteristics.
A choice destination must be unique. It must stand on its own as a place of intrigue, fascination. It must exude a certain magnetism that captures your imagination and systemically draws you in, leading you ever so closer with each passing thought or mention, inevitably rendering you powerless to resist its enigmatic allure and compelling you to transport yourself and/or a loved one to its inviting, heartstring source.
A choice destination must be memorable. It must leave a lasting impression on your very soul and forever imprint a small part of itself on who you are and all you may do afterward.
A choice destination must also be welcoming and exciting, offering delectable food and drink, of course, yet also possessing an equal amount of options that foster relaxation and contemplation, creating those choice and too-rare moments to reflect upon your life and your loved ones, and meditate on these special gifts and those with whom you share it, heal your spirit and rejuvenate your soul.
