You want to try out a different kind of a holiday, escape everyday life and experience a real adventure? So pack your stuff, get into the car and go!
What do you need for a good road trip? What is it you should not forget to bring along? And above all: Where should the trip go to? Here we gathered some tips for your trip to become an unforgettable one:
1. Find the perfect route
Automatically you think of the United States speaking of road trips. Endless streets through the desert, national parks and cruising alongside the coast sights. A dream for anybody who loves travelling! But also Europe offers spectacular routes which promise unforgettable impressions all way through.
Two European travel routes I really like:
Amalfi Coast, Italy
Amalfi’s coastal roads lay within the south italian region Campagnia and last more than 50 kilometers from Meta to Vietri sul Mare. Experience the Amalfi coast alongside the deep blue sea, in between bays, beaches, citrus fruits, grapevines and olive trees. It’s an extraordinary coast with cute villages you should have cruised along one time.
Ring Road, Iceland
If you are drawn to the North, then the Hringvegur in Iceland or the Ring Road should be exactly the right for you! The Ring Road is on the top list of the most pretty roads worldwide and leads alongside Iceland’s coast. With almost 1.300 kilometers you can do this route within a week. Due to the many sightseeing spots on the way it is recommended to take a bit more time for your trip. If you want to get the chance to see the magical northern lights you should travel in September or October. Don’t wait and drive through fairytale landscapes!
So there are not only possibilities for road trips in the U.S.! You can find more spectacular road trip routes on Travelbook.
2. What you should pack
You drive facing the sunlight, feel free and listen to your favourite songs. Your way is your goal and the world is yours. But what are you going to do if you reach the beach without your bikini or not having any soap or toilet paper at a shady highway stop? The golden road trip rule is preparation!
Here are some tips and tricks to ease your dream road trip.
3. Better together
It’s out of the question, in a pair or group you just experience more! So pack your favourite peeps with you! You will make life time memories with your friends on adventurous road trips you won’t forget in 20 years. Like this your road trip will surely become spectacular and unforgettable!
