Have you ever gone on a road trip? What are the interesting things do you think you can do while on a trip to make it worthwhile? That feeling of being on a road trip can not be overemphasized, from listening to your favorite tunes from the stereotype, to expecting what the new excitement would turn out to be. Trips are not always lively all through, they have their own “buts” too. Many people who talked about their experiences have talked about their own share of unfortunate events. But guess what? There are a few ways to make sure that your road trip is amazing.
A road trip gives you a great feeling. It feels like you have left all your worries behind you, and it is best enjoyed with your hommies. Here, I have gathered 10 things you can do to make sure your road trip is completely fun and enjoyable.
1. PLAY GAMES
There are unlimited games you can play while on a road trip. Games like word games, I spy, Twenty games, Quiet games, Connect Four and so on. Your road trip games would not be complete if you forget to take Cards Against Humanity. It is a great travel game.
2. HAVE A PLAYLIST
Combining a list of songs with your friends is actually a great plan to prepare for an exciting road trip. Your road trip can not be complete and full of fun without having a playlist, everyone knows that. You should combine classics, jazz, rock, pop and all other kinds of genre, to enjoy a mix of pleasure.
3. A SING-ALOUD TIME
Singing aloud with your friends during a road trip is so beautiful and exciting because you literally forget all your worries that moment. All you want to do is sing along and dance to whatever music is popping out of the tape. It is such a great feeling to have your favorite ones together with you on a road trip, and your favorite songs popping.
Your road trip might be a long one and you might need to catch some sleep before the driver starts to feel sleepy too. You might have to switch turns in driving, you know. If your friends are the party kind of people, you might end up holding a party in your vehicle, lol. This might prevent you from catching a sleep but you would be catching fun anyways.
5. LISTEN TO AN AUDIO BOOK
Reading books is fine but this is a road trip and every activity should involve your friends. That is why listening to an audio book made it to this list. Even the driver can tune in without feeling too distracted. It is one of the perfect ways to have a bit of car entertainment.
6. PACK YOUR OWN FOOD
Buying foods on a road trip can be so expensive and out of budget. You can be getting unhealthy foods that could cause food poisoning. You are not familiar with the restaurants you will come across on your road trip, so you can not be so sure of the hygiene. It will be great if each person brings different delicacies, so you all make it look like you are on a picnic. This plan will be saving you money. Sounds a lot better.
You don’t have to be on the road all through your days of road trip. Adding camping to your list isn’t a bad idea after all. You can camp anywhere, since you are in control of where you are heading. Camping on the beach is a beautiful idea though. Just make sure you don’t forget to pack the essentials for camping like pillow, torch, spare batteries etc.
While you are planning on going on a road trip, make sure one of your buddies will be holding a recorder because you all have to capture all the beautiful moments. Do crazy things, go wild, record every little activity, even when some of you are asleep. Jot some memories down in a book, take a selfie at every stop. Capture every moment!
You are surely connecting with your friends by going on a road trip with them but you can actually some spice into this adventure of yours. Do not make it just all about eating, singing and dancing. I suggest you all have heart to heart discussions. Talk about your jobs, problems, heartbreak stories, relationships and other interesting things.
10. FORGET YOUR PHONE
You should only pick your phone when you want to take selfies. The road trip is going to be very boring and quiet if everyone decides to focus on their phones. Understand that you are in another part of the world, focus on the plans you made to have an awesome road trip.
11. LAUGH IT OFF
Sometimes, not all our plans would go exactly as planned. There might be little flops during your road trip. Do not take it to heart. Make sure it doesn’t ruin your other plans of making your adventure a beautiful and memorable one. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Enjoy your adventure!
