Road Trip - Adventure is Out There

February 17, 2016

We asked nine five ltd. friend, fan, photographer and avid adventurer, Nikki Hand, to share her thoughts on the timeless act of going on a road trip.

When I was young, a road trip meant sitting in a car for hours on end waiting until we finally reached our destination. We’d break open a bag of potato chips and pass it around. We’d talk or just plug into our CD players and listen away. I think of a road trip a lot different now. Spending a lot of my time shooting photography outdoors, I love driving in the car watching the landscape change as the hours go by. It is art. It so beautiful. 

 A road trip is that time I get to explore something I haven’t seen before. With other obligations holding me back from just leaving for months and exploring, this is my time. This is my time to live this day. The days that I am given to just go out and experience something new. People get so caught up in their lives that they make it so hard for themselves to just take a weekend and go somewhere. I have to make time. I have to finish everything I had planned to do for the weekend during the week! I have to pack everything up and keep checking if I have everything I need. Then finally, I can hit the road!

I get to see those changing landscapes again. I get to listen to some great tunes. I get to stop at those funky places on the side of the road and buy some jewelry. Then, I get to arrive. I finally get to explore and take photos of the great views and adventures. I get to laugh a lot and make memories that will last forever. Most importantly, I get to live this day.
