    3. But then you have to figure out where you actually want to go.

    Up the coast? Down the coast? The possibilities are endless.

    4. And then, just before you leave, you have the bigger problem of choosing what music to put on your road trip playlist.

    14. You drive past somewhere really pretty and everyone wants to get out and take a photo in front of it.

    15. Then it's back to the same boring repetitive scenery.

    16. Though you'll probably drive past a big banana, a big mango or a big sheep at some point.

    17. Then you drive past a stand selling fruit and roses and you HAVE to buy a huge box of cherries or mandarins that no one will end up eating.

    18. It gets to that point of the trip where you're restless and completely sick of being stuck in a hot & cramped car.

    19. But wait! You see a sign that says you're less than an hour from your destination!

    20. It's possibly the longest hour of your life, but finally, you can get out of the car.
