Road trips can be stressful and going on it by yourself can be a bit boring. So what do you do? You go with your partner and hope that by the end of the trip, you’re still a couple!
When you’re going on a road trip with a significant other, I feel that it is easy to get either of you a little aggravated because you’re in the car with them the. whole. time. so its best to find ways to help make this situation better and make them happier. After a handful of road trips with Carmy, I feel like I’ve gotten a pretty good handle on how to make it out of the trip unscathed. So here are my tips on how to survive a road trip with your girlfriend or Carmy!
Know Your Route
Pack some snacks/water
You can try and convince her to pack light but it’s not going to happen ? I’ve come to just accept it. Make sure your car’s cleared our before the trip so there’s plenty of space for her bags which somehow will magically double yours. But either way, it’s best to clear our your trunk before you go on a trip because you don’t want to lug something useless across your trip and realize you needed extra space after. (Carmy: ahem, like his badminton shoes and rackets ha)
Sometimes Meals Don’t Go As Planned
Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow. You may or may not have ice cream for breakfast because she found a spot on Google Maps she wants to try. There has been many times where I think I’m heading out for a meal only for her to lead me to an ice cream parlour and she’s insisting on dessert as our meal. What’s the term? YOLO? Yeah. If you’re on a trip, you might as well enjoy yourself and have a few extra desserts.
