Have I ever mentioned how much I love road trips? I love them, and today I’m starting my first long road trip with my husband. We’re taking the “scenic” route from Georgia down to Florida, driving along the coast, heading into Texas, and eventually making our way to New Mexico. Our plan is to see family, eat lots of delicious food—we’re making it a point to stop for some grub in New Orleans, and enjoy five days of road trippin’. (And before you ask, Bella is not going with us on this particular trip. She is, however most definitely going with us to Italy!)
Five days of hanging out in a car with one other person can get pretty interesting, so besides stocking up on our favorite snacks and making sure we have plenty of water and caffeine to keep us fueled, I’ve come up with a variety of ways to keep us occupied…at least for a few hours.
1. Delete numbers from my phone. I don’t know about you, but I’m a phone-number hoarder. I was looking through it the other day and can’t even remember who some of the people are (terrible, I know). I always think about deleting the numbers, but really, who has time to sit down and go through their phone book. I think miles of open road will be the perfect time for that!
3. Play a game with music. My best friend visited me last year and we listened to the radio and had to guess the artist. It’s not that creative, but it made for good conversation and we had some fun with it. I was surprised with some of the bands I didn’t think I knew, but did.
4. Make a playlist. This is a “duh” idea, but necessary. I have several road trip mixes that I’ll bust out for this particular trip. What are some must-listen-to songs that you’d have on your mix?
