Road trips are awesome in so many ways, and often the trips we take that involve a lot of driving are a lot more memorable than the ones we hop on a plane for! This is because road-tripping turns the entire journey into a trip, rather than other forms of travel where once you get to your destination is when your trip begins.
Whether you choose to road trip by yourself, with a friend, or with your significant other, once you get the road trip bug, you get it and you want more! If you’re already ready to plan your next road trip but feel like there’s some room for improvement, read on. Here are 2 tips for your next road trip.
Consider A Larger Vehicle
On long road trips, you will have to stop and sleep each night before you can continue on your journey the following day. This is particularly important when you are the one behind the wheel because driving is not something you want to do on little or no sleep.
Rent an RV or campervan: if you can’t take your campervan anywhere, you can still enjoy traveling in a roomy, rented one. You’ll find plenty of campervan options for your road trip in campervan-friendly countries like Iceland—your choice will ultimately depend on the inclusions, itinerary (driving on F-roads), and travel expenses separate from the camper rate.
Camping or sleeping in motels is easy enough and can be fun, but if you’re on a very long trip or you take trips often, you are going to start thinking to yourself that there has to be a better way.
Luckily, there is! There are so many vehicle choices for road trip lovers like yourself. You may choose to buy an RV, purchase a van and turn it into a camper van, or modify a different type of vehicle such as a retired school bus or ambulance.
The possibilities are endless but one thing is for sure – if you want to be a professional road tripper, you are probably going to need a bigger ride. Just start thinking about your options and see what’s out there!
One of the things about being on the road that is a turn-off for some people is the lack of options when it comes to food. When going through big cities, you will have plenty of places to choose from, but there will be times when you are out in the middle of nowhere and the only places to eat that you pass will be fast food.
This could go on for miles or even days. This is why it’s so important to pack your own snacks! Bring a cooler (or multiple) and pack healthy snacks so that you aren’t stuck eating something bad for you for every single meal. After all, you want to be feeling your best for your trip!
