Drive safe and happy
One of the gladdest moments of human life is the departure upon a distant (not so distant but hopefully one day will depart) journey into unknown lands.Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of routine, the cloak of many cares and the slavery of home, man feels once more happy.
