Tossing your luggage into the trunk and going on a long road trip is one of the best and cost-effective ways to experiencing the beauty of Canada. For example, you could consider the Trans-Canada Highway, which happens to be one of the longest roads in the world, starting from St. John’s in Newfoundland and ending at Victoria in British Columbia. It stretches to a distance of 8030kms, presenting glaciers, islands, national parks, charming lakes, majestic peaks, and mysterious forests to the delighted traveler.

However, taking a road trip is not without its challenges, and if you have never done it before, you might like to consider the following ten tips.

Audio Books

Borrow or buy some audio books to enjoy on the way. Children as well as adults love listening to stories such as Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, and others.
