Awesome Road Trip Is Giving Us Wanderlust (VIDEO)

Wouldn't it be great to shun all of life's responsibilities and hit the open road for a few weeks?

That's what four friends did when they took an awesome road trip from San Diego to Vancouver last summer. A video posted to YouTube by user The Strollers on Thursday shows the young travellers hitting Santa Monica, Hollywood, Mendocino and Portland before reaching the end of their journey in Lotusland.

Looking outside at the grey skies, busy traffic and the packed trains makes us wish we could do the same.
