it’s that time of the year once again
- when we need to hit the open road and plan an an epic road trip! So rev up your cars and get set to hit the road as we are about to share the ultimate “know before you go” guide to ensure that you are totally #RoadTripReady!
1. Pimp My Ride
Road trips put serious mileage on your car, so make sure you take your vehicle for a routine maintenance check at the workshop and also instal collapsible sun-screens on the windows to protect yourself from the afternoon sun. After all, you want a car that’s up for the journey.
2. Recce Much
Before you set out, you need to plan a route, make reservations for where you want to stay and figure out the stops you want to make along the way. Well, a little homework for a wicked adventure is not a bad idea! ;)
3. Snack Attack
When it comes to snack selection, don’t go too elaborate because spilling food is the last thing you want - sandwiches, granola bars and fruits should be sufficient to satiate your hunger. If you wish to make a pit stop and have a little picnic, then go ahead and stock up your ice box with drinks and some fuss-free nibbles to enjoy at a picturesque place.
4. Chic Yet Comfy
Make the most of the “Pajama Trend” this season and team up your comfy PJs with a cutesy crop top for your epic road trip. You can add sneakers, throw on a pair of funky sunnies and complete your look with a bomber jacket.
5. Candid Captures
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so capture your fun moments with your camera and go crazy taking #ScenicSelfies along the way!
6. Apps Galore
To ensure a smooth journey, you’ll want to log on to portals like Road Mojo
and download apps like Fuel Monitor
for a hassle-free experience while you are on the go.
7. Hello Hygiene
Remember to keep the basic essentials such as a first-aid kit, tissues, wet wipes and a sanitizer handy. It is also a good idea to have a bag to collect all the trash during your trip in order to keep the car clean and be environment friendly.
8. Road Trippin’ Playlist
