There's nothing quite like a lekker pit stop set against scenic and otherworldly backdrops while trekking the long open road.

A pit stop where you can stretch your legs, grab a snack, relieve a road-stressed bladder and grab a quick Insta-shot is what we all crave and desperately need when braving lengthy road trips.

And, well, who doesn't love a good 'ol aesthetic shot of mountain ranges or multicoloured farm plains from the middle of nowhere, blessing your social media followers' feeds and boost your spirit mid-family-road-trip breakdown.
