going local: little joys of everyday life

Ever feel like you want to go somewhere or do something fun, but you have no definitely plan or place in mind? Maybe just hop into your car and choose a little road that you haven’t explored before.

That is exactly what we did one afternoon, and ended up seeing a collection of fascinating things and places, beautiful views and a had some nice ice creams too!
