Driving in the mountains can be one of the most awesome experiences on any road trip. The epic views and opportunities for Instagram fun are seemingly infinite. With every turn of the road, there’s another sight to take your breath away, another landscape you’ll save to the USB stick in your own mind. Seriously, once you’ve driven in the mountains, driving on the M25 is just…well…it’s just boring (more boring than it normally is).
But, of course, driving in the mountains isn’t without its dangers. The roads curl and weave, threading themselves up and down the slopes like wayward bits of tarmac spaghetti. And if you don’t keep your wits sharp and your eyes on the road, there’s hundreds of potential hazards just waiting to spoil all of your mountain-based fun.
