Maybe you’re the kind of person that believes when it comes to road trips, there should be no rules. Although celebrating liberty and being spontaneous is what hitting the road with friends and loved ones is all about, a few simple road trip guidelines can be extremely helpful in ensuring success.
# 1 – Choose your travel mates wisely
Nothing can ruin a road trip like disharmony among travel mates. Try to have some idea of how yours and your friends’ personalities might dovetail or clash on a trip. If you have a feeling that things could go awry because of wildly different tastes or personality flaws, reconsider your choice.
# 2 – Avoid under- and over-planning.
If you don’t create enough of a plan, you may not feel satisfied with your trip. On the other hand, if you plan too much, and don’t leave room for spontaneity, your trip may not feel exciting
# 3 – Create a budget.
When you spend too much money, you may not feel the sting when you’re on the road. But your return home is sure to be accompanied by some regret and concern. Also, don’t spend too much money too early. Then the latter half of your trip may be disappointing!
The perfect road trip is all about balance. Balance some simple planning with lots of spontaneity and you are on your way to making memories!
