Vacations are a time for exploring, having fun and just being plain silly. This summer we heard about a new social media phenomena called planking, or plankiando in Spanish. It’s a really stupid, harmless thing that entails laying straight like a log with your feet and your hands straight and your face down. There is absolutely no meaning to planking except that in our case I tried to do it with famous places and people. Almost no one had seen this done but in a couple places like the Golden Gate Bridge and in front of the Hollywood Walk of Fame we did overhear people say, “look, they’re planking!” Planking made our 44-day road trip so much funner! I hope you enjoy our collection of road trip planks!
