I have traveled the world many times and I know that when you travel, it pays to have a way to get to places you want to see. Of course, this can be accomplished when you have a car at your disposal.
I still remember one of my holidays many years ago. As an adventurous person, I had promised myself that I would see as many places in that particular area as possible. Little did I know at that time that public transportation in the area was very ineffective. After managing to finally figure out the complicate bus routes, I had my money prepared for a trip back to the hotel. I waited, waited, and waited, and absolutely nothing happened. I was stranded in a desolate place with nothing but a backpack on my shoulders, a few packages of snacks, and a little water. Luckily for me, hitchhiking used to be one of my hobbies back in my university days, so I decided to give it a go. I managed to get back to the hotel that day, but asking complete strangers to get you somewhere might not be the best idea, especially when you are alone in a foreign country. Next time I am just going to rent a car and drive anywhere I want.
I have to admit that I enjoy the freedom resulting from having a car at my disposal. Driving in even some of the most remotest countries in the world does not differ that much from driving in my own country. The signs are everywhere the same and there is no difference when it comes to that. When I rent a car, it comes with a set of keys, a full tank, and I am always ready to embark on some of the most wonderful adventures in the world and enjoy myself very much.
