If given the choice, what would be your preferred mode of transportation to & from a vacation?
On one hand, I'd choose airplane because you would reach your destination quicker, but you would have to deal with airport stuff (crowds, checking in, baggage claim, security, waiting to board / disembark, etc.).
On the other hand, I also enjoy travelling by car - you get to set your own pace, stop when you want, etc. I chose this option, as I haven't needed to travel by plane for a couple of years.
May the Force be With You. . .
