What is the image that comes to mind when someone says ‘road trips’?

An experience of a lifetime on meandering roads, preferably in a top down convertible, with great music and wind blowing on that glorious face, of course. But what about the times when the pleasures of a road trip go haywire?

The other side of a road trip ranges from an exhausting journey, bumpy roads, a broken music player and the constant chatter on the radio, emergency loo breaks and being stuck in a car with really bad company!

If you thought you had seen it all, here is a compilation of the many tweets of experiences that fellow road trippers have faced in graver situations!
