Over the years, Jeanne has learnt how to minimize stress inside the car cabin and to enjoy motoring holidays. Also to hitch hike for petrol, smell an engine noise and pray for easy river crossings.

  1. One of my favorite quotes is from Robert Louis Stevenson– “To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive.” It seems Stevenson was expressing the same idea as the earlier Taoist saying – “The journey is the reward”. Does it apply to long distance driving? I like to think it does.
