Yeah, I usually plan my vacations this way so I can drive as many new roads as possible. Plus, you see a lot of the country. For example, few Dutch know they can also appreciate the landscapes of the Harz, Rhön or Fichtelgebirge instead of mindlessly driving to Lake Garda or the Ardèche every single year.

Going to the same spot every single year...

What's wrong with that? If you like that spot why not go there every year if you feel like it? Not everybody has see as much as they can. What you probably mean is that many people claim to "know" France while they go to the same spot every year. That's for me. However, if people go to the same place very year, there's nothing wrong with that IMO.

Denmark, Germany, Czech, USA. Driving in the USA was the most exciting, different signs and rules but fortunately I had help.

I personally drove on much of Italy (including Sicily but, alas, not Sardinia), Austria and Bavaria.

My humble update:
Blue - myself
Grey - as a passenger

My travels. Blue are roads, Green is Ferry Leghorn (Livorno)-Barcelona.


Forgot the road to Cuenca and N-400 Toledo Aranjuez...

Did you drive all this or some of them are passenger travels?

These are only the roads I have driven personally:


not only highways but also other kinds of roads.

In red are the roads I'm going to drive next week.

Stick your car in 5(or 6)th gear at 120 km/h and try not to overtake. Left hand on the steering wheel, right hand on your camera Good luck!

but every time I have to grab the camera, power it on, hold it, take the pic and power off... too long and distracting for me.

I just leave the camera on for dozens of hours in a row. If you have screen off in 10 seconds, you can last generally 6 hours of photographing on 2 batteries.

Leave it on the right seat. It's not so hard.

Are you traveling alone? If not, you could ask the passanger to help you.

Unfortunately my camera, Fujifilm Finepix A600, lasts much less... it is a production defect...

Hopefully one of my friends will come with me, but I'm not sure yet.

I'll see what I can do, I promise I'll try!

Don't promise such things God knows it could be pouring rain. You can't take good pictures when it's raining.
