RULES ARE NOT MEANT TO BE BROKEN, NO MATTER WHAT YOU MAY HAVE HEARD, ESPECIALLY ROSE’ RULES.

These RULES are meant for both domestic and foreign travel, put them where they fit. They also flex between having your own vehicle, or rental, and taking buses, trains or planes.  Many of the rules apply to life in general.

Most of the RULES, or suggestions, are geared to riding in a vehicle but they can be adjusted to fit any mode of travel. Don’t forget to take the stairs instead of the elevator, the side road instead of the main road and watch for what stands out.

Please, take this as the fun it is intended for. Hopefully, it will make your trip more pleasant. Travel down the Roads with Rose and you will make some discoveries of your own.  Click on this link and see how I made one of my first discoveries – http://roseontheroads.com/discovery-the-pa…d-walls-of-paris/
