road trip tips
If you’re anything like me, you would never think to pass up the opportunity for a good road trip! While others may find them exhausting, boring, and way too time-consuming, I love being able to see a ton of new places and enjoy some quality time with friends and family in the car. There are few better times than a road trip to catch up on podcasts, new music, and random conversation. Plus, road trips are often cheaper than flying – especially if you’ve got a lot of luggage!
In the last year or two, I’ve embarked on almost 15,000 miles of road tripping – and I’m leaving for another 1,500-mile trip soon! It all started when I drove with Nick’s family from our hometown in Washington to drop him off at college in Iowa. From then on, I’ve driven at least part of 4 round trips between Washington and Iowa and one from Washington to Colorado and back. I’ve learned a lot from each of these trips, and each time we hit the open road, we know more of what to expect, making our travels less stressful and more enjoyable.
In honor of summer traveling beginning soon, here are some of my best road trip tips to prepare for your next adventure and make it the best one yet!
And of course, don’t forget to check on your car and make sure everything is running smoothly!
I hope these road trip tips were helpful – safe travels! (:
