  1. If you are not of the ‘lavish lifestyle’ types… then its not at all difficult. Just fix your daily destination, ensure its relatively a small town and you will find hotels, lodges, etc.. For crux days.. we were even ready to have a nap at the petrol pumps… :D

    Generally speaking the more time you spend on the roads as opposed to hotels… the more you’ll eventful and lovely your trip would be..
