My friend taking K’s photo with the lovely orchids at Taipei Taoyuan International Airport.

We just loved this orchids sanctuary.  The flowers are big and colorful. Some have a very nice smell. So pretty! Very relaxing to spend the layover hours while waiting for the next flight, as you can see.  Please excuse the feet. 🙂 You can take pictures of these lovely orchids to your hearts’ content as long as you are not exhausted and your camera’s memory card capacity and cellphone’s storage are huge.  🙂

Correct me if I am wrong, I think this is close to the C1 Boarding Gate.

The Best Driving Roads In America For Scenic Road Trips

I heard of some travelers taking road trips instead of flying.  I don’t blame them. Though flying will take you to your destination very quickly, sometimes time flights get delayed and you feel stressed because your precious time is wasted. Still flying is ideal when the chance calls it.

For those who love road travels, obviously, they find driving a good option because there are chances to stop and see beautiful scenery along the way.  Safety wise, it is always great to drive during the day than at night.  Road traveling across America can be fun and enjoyable at the same time.  If it is your first time to go on a road trip with family or friends, the best thing to do is to plan ahead and check weather forecasts ahead of time as well.  For  Below are some of the best driving roads in the US for road trips.

San Juan Skyway in Colorado – Besides being popular of its mountainous landscape, the state also brags its scenic San Juan Skyway.  The beautiful mountainside makes you want to stay there forever bonding with nature.

The Cherohala Skyway in Tennessee – For travelers who love historic places like in Tennessee, this road should be in your bucket list.  The Cherohala Skyway is about 40+ miles long and connects Tellico Plains, Tennessee, with Robbinsville, North Carolina which takes you to one state to another.

Hill Country, Texas – Of course, I have to brag about Texas’ best road trip route.  If you want to experience Texas in one driving day, take this 200-mile route and you will be able to see Texas all day long.  Road travelers will definitely won’t forget Texas and it’s history.  So many things to do and see along the way.  You should get your cameras ready, fully-charged batteries, and extra memory cards for photos and stuff.

One of the important things when planning a road travel is booking your car rental in advance.  You see, vacation times are hectic.  Hotels gets fully booked immediately, and so is car rentals.  To get advantage of low car hire fees, book at America Car Rental in advance.  In addition, they will guide you to the best road travel destination of your choice.  It’s a great thing to plan ahead.  Don’t you think?
