Summary/Review: Remarkabe road trips has assembled the very best scenic drives the world has to offer. From the towering sandstone buttes of Utah to the breathtaking arctic wastes of the Dempster Highway, there are 51 journeys that will leave you gasping for breath, none more that Bolivia's Road of Death. There are short journeys and long journeys - some take weeks, others hours - all are spectacular. Along with the wild and desolate highlands and islands of Norway, Iceland, Scotland and Ireland, there is the world's biggest Scalextric set, Jebel Hafeet. Requiring less adrenaline, there are beautifully signposted roads, like the Blue Ridge Parkway, Route des Vins d'Alsace and Germany's Romantic Road, plus for petrolheads the long-and-winding mountain ascents, such as Stelvio Pass and Romania's Transfagarasan Road. There are unique urban adventures, too, and a trip through the Cotswolds that will tempt you to stop at every pub. This is a compelling set of road adventures.
