Hotels or motels along the highway have an astonishing similarity. Members of various chains, they became interchangeable including the water under the shower tray which left a kind of soft feeling under the feet. The dog must have wondered why we rode around in a car for long days and then always wound up in the same place.

That's one advantage of road trips over everyday living.
On road trips we have maps to guide us and warn us of hazards or delights along the way.
