Benefits of Travelling in a Campervan

Long trips can be a real bummer when you can’t barely move in your small car. What’s worse is getting stuck in traffic for hours without anything to eat and no place to take a nap. Thankfully, somebody thought of combining a vehicle and a trailer – alas the campervan was born! Now, we can comfortably stretch our legs, grab something to eat, and have a snooze anytime, anywhere.

The first motorhome originated in New York when Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company launched its Touring Landau model back in 1910. However, the Jennings company developed a campervan model that was easier to drive and has a better appearance. That RV opened doors to other motorhome manufacturing companies including Westfalia, Paralanian, and Bedford Dormobile.
If you’re planning to go on a road trip, then why not go to the extreme? You can do that by renting an RV and literally living your life on the road! So what are the benefits of travelling in a campervan? Here are some of them:

Glow-in-the-dark roads light up The Netherlands

Yeah, we all know that there are glow-in-the-dark stickers, shirts, and shoes, but is there such a thing as glow-in-the-dark roads? The answer is YES! The Netherlands takes us on a trippy ride as it recently opened the Smart Highway.

glow in the dark road

What makes it so smart is that it uses glow-in-the-dark road markings instead of streetlights. Driving along this one-of-a-kind highway will remind you of the science-fiction film “Tron”. Just remind yourself that you are not in a video game because you might get carried away and go on full throttle once you’ve hit the road.
