I love road trips, I think it’s a great way to see a country, get away from home and to enjoy a couple of days of traveling.

The first time I was on a ‘real’ roadtrip was in Florida going down to Key West a few years ago – we were staying at one of the many Key West condo rentals available by the beach, but what I enjoyed the most was the road trip down there, and having great music really added to that experience.
