On The Road

Jack Kerouac On the Road Finally got round to reading Kerouac’s On The Road. What can I say? If ever there was a book that gave me wanderlust, it has to be this one. I’m desperate to just hop in a car and start driving across the States now…!

This book has been on my to-read list for a long time, and I’m so glad I finally got around to it. It’s a little insane, it goes in crazy directions at times, yet all the same I want to get on the road now too. Thinking about taking a little road trip across the US at some point next year perhaps… any suggestions? Must see places? Must do things?

    Oh definitely Seattle across Washington State, through Idaho and into Montana. Stay there awhile to photograph Glacier National Park and then continue on through the midwest all across until you get to DC or so and then south to Florida! Wahoo! You should do it 🙂

    I agree – that route is gorgeous!
    I’ve always wanted to read that book…I’m going to add it to my summer list 🙂

    @ Rose: Thanks for the suggestion! I’m hoping to head up the west coast at some point in the near future, probably before I do an epic road trip right across the States!

    @ Chère: It’s a great book, I recommend adding it to your summer list!
