Due to the current circumstances, 2021 is definitely going to be the year of the road trip.
Although they’re not for everyone, I think road trips are probably one of my favourite ways to travel because not only do you get to see lots of incredible places at once, but you also get to make some great memories on the road too.
From singing at the top of your lungs to stopping for your next round of snacks, you may be surprised at how much the small moments mean to you when you’re looking back on your trip.
Whether you’re in the States and you’re travelling cross country with your partner or you’re hitting up a couple of spots in the UK with someone you met Dorset dating, I wanted to share some of my top tips for creating the ultimate couples road trip this year:
The Perfect Couples Road Trip
Plan Your Route
Of course, one of the first things you need to do for your perfect couples road trip is to plan exactly where it is you want to go.
While this doesn’t mean you have to plan EVERY single second of your trip, knowing where you’re going to be spending each night is definitely a good place to start as it gives you time to book your accommodation in advance and if needed, plan the best possible driving route to take.
Alternatively, you can completely wing it and see where you end up each day. Something I’ve always wanted to do, but never quite got round to doing.
Consider Your Accommodation
When it comes to road trips, pretty much anything goes when it comes to accommodation. You could hire a van that you sleep in, pitch up a tent at a nearby campsite, book a weird and wonderful Airbnb or you could stay in ultimate comfort and book a hotel. Personally, I love camping but my partner would much rather stay in a quirky self-contained property somewhere in the wild…
The sooner you book your accommodation, the cheaper it is going to be, especially now that things are hard to come by as a result of the pandemic.
Make Sure You Have Everything You Need
When it comes to packing, having a car means you have a little more space to play with and as a result, you can probably pack more than you would for your standard trip. For me, this just means planning ahead and packing the things to make a couple of home-cooked meals, ALL of my toiletries and some extra snacks for on the road.
Pick And Awesome Playlist
Part of the fun of going on a couples road trip is singing to all of your favourite songs as you make your way down country roads and highways. Whether you’ve recently started dating someone you met on one of the most popular dating sites UK or you’ve been dating for years, chances are you’re not going to like all of the same music.
With that in mind, making a super long playlist on Spotify that’s filled with a little bit of everything means that there are no arguments on who gets to choose the next song. Just stick the playlist on shuffle and all of the hard work is done for you!
Although I don’t have a road trip planned for this year just yet, it’s definitely something I’m considering once restrictions start to open up more over the next few months.
