Going on a road trip is anyway a lot of fun. However, going on a road trip all alone is a life changing experience. It is something that everyone should do at least once in their life time. It is a great way to rediscover you, find inspiration and most importantly get some peace and quiet to truly relax and unwind. Here are a few tips to make your solo road trip a memorable one.
Know where you are going, or don’t know at all
If the purpose of your road trip is to arrive at a specific destination, make a list of the places you can drop into on your way. These short stops will make sure that you don’t get bored too soon. Always remember to carry a detailed map with you – yes an actual map that you need to unfold and fold every time you use it. It can be a little risky to rely on technology while you are on the road.
The alternative is to not have a plan on where you want to go. You could start from somewhere you know and drive wherever your heart takes you. This is a great way to discover new places that you never even knew existed.
Packing is important
In order for your road trip to be both fun and stress free, you should make sure to pack everything you require prior to departure. The basics would include extra clothes, snacks, medication, some cash and any personal items that you would need on the way. If you want to take some cool drinks with you, you can get ice bags from one of the plastic bag suppliers in your area which can help you to be more organized. Taking a pillow and some blankets might also be useful.
Use an easy to use carryon bag to take all your things with you. Since you’ll most likely be staying the nights at a small B&B or hostel, taking too much luggage will make it convenient for you. Plastic bag suppliers also offer compact plastic travelling bags that are light and easy to carry. You could look at a few of these bags while picking up your ice bag if necessary.
Start as early as possible
There are many advantage of starting a road trip early in the morning; you will be fresh and energetic which will help you enjoy your drive more, you will be able to avoid traffic and it’ll be easy to navigate through areas that you don’t know.
Also, who doesn’t like to see the sun coming up while they are on the road enjoying their first solo road trip?
