  • Road trip tip 3: Find the smallest or largest everything

    Road trip tip 3: Find the ‘smallest or largest’ of everything. Before embarking on any road trip make sure your car is mechanically sound. If you need any car spares or any other road tripping odds and ends, speak to Randburg Midas and we will have you enjoying your road trip in no time #Roadtripping Ok so if there’s one thing you’re allowed to map out, it’s all those places that claim to have the “world’s smallest/ largest” version of whatever, because they make for some hilariously off-beat sights. There will be tons of ‘smallest and largest’ things to see along your way. Highlights include food challenges (if you can beat them the meal is usually free so this is a great money saver, that is if you can do it) smallest churches, museums, trains, homes and largest vegetables, shoes, cars and machines the list could go on forever.

  • Road trip tip 2: Don’t research your stops beforehand

    Road trip tip 2: Don’t research your stops beforehand. Before embarking on any road trip make sure your car is mechanically sound. If you need any car spares or any other road tripping odds and ends, speak to Randburg Midas and we will have you enjoying your road trip in no time #Roadtripping Click the link to read more. Ahh expectation, the grand crippler of many a road tripper’s happiness. On a road trip, your schedule has extra room, so you can afford to enter a new city with no prior knowledge of what you’ll find. Being relatively clueless has benefits: When you don’t know what to expect at a stop, you can’t possibly be let down by what you discover. And when you’re not bee-lining for the city’s most-visited tourist locales, you leave the door wide open for weird little discoveries… of the city’s true gems.

  • Road trip tip 1: Make a plan, but not a rigid one

    Road trip tip 1: Make a plan, but not a rigid one. Before embarking on any road trip make sure your car is mechanically sound. If you need any car spares or any other road tripping odds and ends, speak to Randburg Midas and we will have you enjoying your road trip in no time #Roadtripping If you’ve got a time limit (as most road trippers do), it’s smart to plot out which city you’ll sleep in each night before setting off. Plan so your driving time is eight hours or less per day, but don’t plan anything more than that. Then watch as your days become hilarious sagas of driving, wandering, and following your wild road trip whims.
