Road trips are not just for families and friends. Couples can make their first holiday as married couple – the honeymoon – a romantic road trip. They can spend time with each other without worrying about expensive hotels and airfares. A road trip will also test your compatibility and strength as a couple as it will put you through various unexpected situations.
Planning is essential for a honeymoon road trip. Avoid starting the journey of a married life with quarrels about things he or she forgot to carry on the trip. Make a checklist of the essentials and complete the tasks together.
Where to go
Let each of you have a say about the places to cover on the road trip. Is there any destination you’ve always dreamed about but never visited? Now is the time to fulfill those dreams. Learn to enjoy various things as a couple, even if it is only to make your spouse happy.
Drive through your dream destinations in a perfect vehicle. This means it has to be in good working condition with all parts in place. Ensure that you have enough fuel for the journey. Carry an emergency kit with tools and spare tires. Acquire the technical knowledge of your car if it’s new or you’re a novice.
Food and water
These will be available on the road too, but you would save a lot of money if you carry them from home. Take a mix of healthy snacks and junk food so that you can have meals in the car occasionally. A first-aid kit and refills for the current medicines of you or your spouse are important.
Kill the boredom
While you may never be bored in the company of your spouse, lengthy road trips can lead to some amount of ennui. Play games, and carry your favorite tunes to listen and sing along. Share fun stories about your life or read from books and magazines to each other.
Remember to capture all the great moments on film so that you can look back nostalgically on your road trip honeymoon.
