The Gandy List - Model and man-about-town David Gandy curates his monthly Top 5 Unzipped Instant Update

March was made for making great escapes. Out of winter. Out of town. Into the wild blue yonder. Get behind the metaphorical wheel with a little insight from Gandy on the roads less traveled he’s dying to drive down now.

THE DRIVE:
Scottish Highlands
I first drove through the Scottish Highlands when I was six years old. Obviously, I wasn't driving myself, but even then I couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel. James Bond in Skyfall probably does more justice to the scenery than I could ever describe. It’s really like no place on earth. Last year, I drove through the Highlands twice and for a driving enthusiast it is a dream. Just be careful though, there is a saying in Scotland: “If you don't like the weather, just wait 10 minutes.” That’s how quickly it changes.

THE DRIVE:
St. Gathered Pass
The Gathered Pass is a high-mountain pass in Switzerland connecting the northern German-speaking part of Switzerland with the Italian-speaking part, along the route onwards to Milan. I’ve never actually driven this road, but one day I certainly will. Supposedly it is the greatest driving road in the world to truly test a car. Sounds like a great challenge to me!

THE DRIVE:
Pacific Coast Highway
Pebble Beach, Big Sur, Carmel, San Francisco… some of the most beautiful places in the world all on one road. I’ve driven this road in 90 degrees of heat and rain. Once, a landslide even prevented me from going any further and still, it didn't matter. Whatever time of year, whatever conditions, the P1 is always spectacular.

THE DRIVE:
Uganda
I once spent 3 days driving through the whole of Uganda in order to trek for gorillas. Being touching distance to the gorillas was special enough, however it’s the driving that still stays in my memory. Not that you could really call them roads that we were driving on half of the time… we also had a vehicle crash into us, we broke down and had a few punctures. However, to discover a country like I had never seen, to meet the people, the children and the different cultures, only driving really affords this kind of insight.

THE DRIVE:
Amalfi Coast
I’ve shot fashion editorials on the Amalfi coast from Positano to Ravello more times than I care to remember, and usually with some of most well-travelled and successful crews in the industry. But an amazing thing happens every time on the Amalfi coast: everyone is inevitably almost stunned to silence by the beauty. It just so happens that the stunned silence may be broken by the odd Ferrari V8 speeding past, but for once I'm happy just being driven and enjoying the peace and view.
