'In the golden era of driving, we’d have seen so much more of our countryside and the towns and villages that make up our great nation. Today, so much of this is bypassed and the views outside our car windows are merely a blur. Sometimes it is good to explore something different and get away from the hoards of people at the same time. So why not pick up a copy and treat yourself to some fresh air and a good walk next time you’re on the move?' - The Petrol Blog
