On holiday, I have always preferred the road less travelled, unless there is a pressing need to get somewhere more rapidly

Wine routes in France and Austria were always popular, and there might be stunning scenery (as with the Dentelles de Montmirail in the Rhône valley) or castles as at Durnstein in Austria, or one of many in Alsace:
Nothing like getting off the beaten track, discovering your road has been closed, and taking a very rough detour because you were determined to reach your destination…my friend was driving and I suggested she take this very rough detour, and talked her through negotiating the ruts and potholes…in 1st gear and VERY slowly! That’s how we reached Craco Veccia, to explore the abandoned town.
And off the main roads, there’s nothing like a tree lined avenue
