Road trips are the thing this summer and with that, you may be wondering how to pull off a couple’s road trip. Chris and I have been doing some long-distance driving as a couple ever since we met (fun fact: we were long distance when we started dating!). From couple’s road trips to DC, Toronto, and even to NYC, we know that road trips can be so much fun together!
But..they can also be stressful, boring, and drag on. After all, the flat landscape of Ohio isn’t nearly as exciting to look at as the mountains out west, right?
In this podcast episode, we’ve got our top 10 tips to create the best road trip possible, plus the blunders we’ve had over the years! We hope you enjoy learning from our mistakes and make your next road trip one for the books!
