Roads which unite us. Time of occurrence of the first road does not name anybody though, most likely it has occurred not much more after the wheel invention. And our ancestors have very quickly understood all advantage of the invention. Still, presence it is expensive considerably facilitated movement of dealers and armies, promoted development of the countries and the nations. In due course their quantity all grew and grew. The technical thought too did not stand on a place: there have passed only some millenia, and the person has invented the car, and then and traffic rules.
Now the car became a habit, and many kilometres of our planet are covered by asphalt. So, the general extent of roads of the Western Europe makes more than 4 million in km, in the USA this indicator exceeds 6 million in km. You represent? Very few people can overcome such distance for all life, after all if to go with a speed of 100 km at an o'clock for eight hours per day, without days off and stops for 20 years you can pass only 5,8 million in km. And if still to count up extent of roads of Asia, Africa, yes the South America?
Roads, многорядные highway and high-speed lines - sometimes they remind blood system of our planet. On it, like blood little bodies, on the big speeds people are transferred to different parts of globe, cargoes are transported.
Someone, wishing to get to destination somewhat quicker, and on the parties does not look, presses on gas: faster, faster. And someone - on the contrary, travels just for the hell of it, slowly exchanges kilometres, enjoying each new kind opening behind turn. They are the present lucky beggars, after all they have time for contemplation. Incorrigible romanticists - they often travel families, with children and dogs, and every morning meet in a new place. Recently I have got acquainted with such family from Holland: the daddy the psychologist, mum - the housewife, four children-schoolboys. They travel every summer on the different countries, here, have reached and Moldova. Pleasant in every respect people, the meeting with them has helped to recollect rather the forgotten partially English. And they did not remain in накладе - learnt "thanks" and "hello" on Russian and Moldavian, have caused the sea of happy smiles on their affable persons.
And remember, still more recently the Soviet people were proud (at least, aloud) of that at us «borders on the lock». Even songs sang «the coast Turkish is not necessary to me, and Africa is not necessary to me». However, in a consequence it has appeared, that ourselves were under the lock, and Africa with Turkey, yes at the same time and the other countries very much even are necessary to us. And now our compatriots can be met and on roads of Asia, both Africa, and America, and Europe. Not looking at borders and visas, we safely direct in a way. The main thing - desire to sit down in the car and to begin the, personal, Great Travel. Let it will be the next small town or the unknown far country, the road will present to you set of new impressions, do not doubt.
