Britons aren’t the only ones discovering their backyards this summer. Holidaymakers all over the world are looking for inspiration and road trips. __S.2__
People are increasingly attracted to the idea of getting in a car and driving on the roads.
The world might automatically associate Route 66 with “road trip”, but Britons could imagine driving the NC500 through the Scottish Highland.

Goodbyecar, a car-buying service, analysed social media data to determine where people were heading.
The service looked at Rough Guides’ 36 top road trips.
