5 Tips for Road Trips

It’s almost the end of summer and I was looking back on all our road trips this year. It’s amazing what you can fit into two months! I love getting to know places around me and enjoy the whole ‘road trip’ adventure – it’s not only about the destination but it’s also about the journey. 

I was invited to write this post (Groupon has sponsored it,) and that inspired me to come up with some travelling tips. 

Here are some of the things I do that make road tripping much easier:

1

Make sure you unpack your fur babies before you leave – unless they are coming with you.

I am not sure if these two find my suitcases very comfortable or really don’t want me to leave them at home but they do this every single time.

It sure is cute and I do miss them when I go. They never seem to want to crawl into the suitcases when I get home for some reason.

Bring silicone earplugs! And if I am to be completely honest, these are not for me to wear so much as my roommate. Yes I’ve become a snorer.

Make sure to use the soft silicone ones that you can warm up by rolling in your hand then place over the opening of your ear – not in your ear though. You want to go for a suction effect. If you clean your ears the silicone sticks to your skin a bit better.

Bring an extra set of clothes. I like to change after I arrive because I find driving a sweaty business. I wear loose comfortable clothing in the car as it’s uncomfortable enough to sit for so long on your road trips. Plus, if you end up spilling a milkshake on yourself while singing at the top of your lungs to ‘Life is a Highway’ – it doesn’t really matter for long.

Keep all your meds in your purse. This tip is important if you fly or take the train too. You need to know where this stuff is in case you lose your luggage or you don’t have the time or energy to search for them when you arrive. I also include Benadryl and Tylenol. 

It’s handy to keep your toothbrush in there too even though most hotels will provide you with one if you are desperate. Road trips

Check out special offers on route for Groupon Goods at restaurants, accommodations, local attractions and other interesting deals.

This is why I like Groupon for my road trips. They advertise deals that you can use right away and if you download their mobile app you can surf as you go. It’s a great job for your co-pilot!

As I mentioned before, this is a sponsored post which means I was paid a fee to write it. Since it is part of my blog it is all 100% my post and my opinions.

    I totally agree with bringing a change of clothes! Also, I recommend bringing non-junk snacks. Eating fast food and chips for days at a time, plus just sitting in the car for hours, makes me feel disgusting. So I pack grapes, cherry tomatoes, sandwiches, fruit, etc so I have something delicious and healthy on hand.

      Very excellent points! Thanks for the reminder – I like to bring along a small cooler on my road trips for this exact thing. Happy trails!
