The cover of the night adds a naughty clandestine feel to skinny-dipping as long as you mind the temperature. Removing all clothing and a dive into the waters can feel like a return to the womb in a way.

One thing that travelers can view as an advantage brought about by the recession, a blessing in disguise, if you will, is the numerous travel deals being offered left and right.

Earlier, we talked about the best roads in the world today, where petrol heads can drive to their heart’s content. Where there is nothing more that just man (or woman), car, and road.

The reviews are in and much debate has been going on. And now, to appease others who are adamant about their own choice for the best road you can find around the world, here are a couple more places you may want to visit if you’re planning to embark on a road trip.

NEW ZEALAND

Milford Road

The Milford Road, also known as SH94 or State Highway 94, is a perfect place to visit if you’re particularly interested in the outdoor scenery in New Zealand. It starts from Te Anau, passing through the Fiordland National Park, Southern Alps, and ends in Milford Sound. The entire distance of this highway is about 240 kilometers or 114 miles. Depending on how heavy your foot is at the gas pedal, and on the current weather conditions, the trip usually takes at least two hours. Make sure you’re ready to commit to the entire journey before entering the highway; it’s a one-way road and there’s no turning back.

Baseball

First on the list is to catch a baseball game in Boston. To see a REAL baseball game, you should definitely go there during summer season so you can feel the intensity and the frenzy of it all.
