Did you ever go on family road trips when you were a kid? Maybe you remember singing along to your favourite tunes, playing eye spy, munching on snacks, or fighting over who got to sit where in the car. If you’re planning on travelling with your sibling in 2022, why not relieve all that nostalgia with a classic road trip around California in the United States. You’ll get to soak up city of San Francisco and marvel at the scenic Lake Tahoe, have time for meaningful conversations with your sibling on the way, enjoy the best food in the Salinas Vallet and admire the breathtaking view on a 17-mile drive up the beautiful California coast.

If you and your sibling have always dreamed of having your own Maria moment on top of a mountain in the Alps, this is your chance!

And when you need time to recharge after all the thrills, you can relax at the beach or soak in thermal hot springs.

This iconic adventure is made for travelling with your siblings. You’ll get to tick off all those big bucket list experiences like exploring Central Park, Times Square, and the Empire State Building in New York City, seeing the White House and other historic monuments in Washington D.C. and taking a thrilling boat ride to the base of the mighty Niagara Falls.

You’ll also have plenty of fun in Oakville in Canada where you’ll meet a professional hockey player and learn how to score a goal, go wine and cider tasting in Montreal, or learn how to make whoopie pies in Amish Country. Philadelphia is even nicknamed ‘The City of Brotherly Love’, so it’ll be extra special when you visit the city of cheesesteaks and the Liberty Bell with your sibling.
