Why You Should Drive Instead of Fly

# 3 – Claustrophobia

Arguably the most unpleasant aspect of flying is the lack of personal space. They pack you in like sardines, and you spend the whole flight bumping elbows with total strangers. In a car, there’s so much more room, and you get stop any time you want to stretch your legs.

# 2 – Fresh air

Notice how flying makes you exhausted? It’s not that there is less oxygen in the cabin, it’s that your blood absorbs less oxygen at such high altitudes. As a result, you come off the plane feeling—and many times looking—like a zombie. If you drive instead of fly, you get benefit of full oxygen absorption (assuming it’s not a mountain trip).

# 1 – Scenery

You know that no matter how stunning the view from the window seat is, before long you are going to fall asleep, followed by waking up with a crick in your neck. In the car, the scenery is right there. You can almost reach out and grab it. In fact, admiring the scenery on a road trip may be the best reason to drive instead of fly.
