Here are my Top 10 reasons why I love road trips. They are not in any particular order.
I love taking photographs and the number one thing I love taking photographs of is scenery. Even on road trips you can see a variety different scenery mountains, forests, lakes etc. Makes for a memorable trip.
I know what your thinking, I can see wildlife at home why would I go on a road trip just to see wildlife. Well the reason in my opinion is pretty simple, you see see them in their natural habitat versus the habitat they have had to adapt to because we have encroached on them.
So I personally love road trips simply because I get to spend quality time with whoever I happen to be travelling with. It lets me reconnect with them and be able to share what's been going on in our lives if we haven't be able to spend that much time together before that.
For me personally I find myself simply to busy to actually listen to music and that road trips are a great time to listen to that podcast you have been meaning to or that playlist you made and haven't gotten around to listening to yet.
Yes you read that right, snacks. For me I believe that having the right snacks with you on a road trip can make or break it. You don't want to be hungry of course but you also don't want to be eating junk food/fast food for your entire trip. Having the right snacks is the key to a good trip for me anyway.
Off the Beaten Path Stops
When your on a road trip you have the chance to stop at various stops and see things that you might not have seen before. You can stop at these places and have the experiences that you might never have had otherwise.
You Never Know What Could Happen
When your on a road trip you never know what could happen during your trip. You could be stopped by a herd of bison or stopped by an unexpected traffic jam. You never know and that's all part of the fun.
Your Not On A Schedule
Personally when taking a road trip I don't like to have a set schedule, I do like to know what places I would like to stop if there are any and I do like to know where I am stopping for the night etc.
Clear Your Mind & Relax
A road trip gives you the chance to simply relax and clear your mind. You can recharge your batteries in a sense and be ready to conquer whatever comes your way when you get home.
Getting To Your Destination
Yes a huge part of your road trip will be getting to your destination. Whether you know what your destination is or if its totally by accident. The destination doesn't even need to be somewhere it could just be when you are ready to go home or the destination could even be your home all that matters is that you enjoy getting there.
So there you have it my Top 10 favorite things about road trips. I love road trips and will always be an advocate for them. Whether it's for fun or for business, road trips are always for me at least, fun.
See you next time :)
