Trying to decide what to do for your next great getaway with your honey? These days there are literally so many things to do for holidays or great romantic getaways that it can be daunting to say the least trying to come up with something that suits the both of you, your relationship and is cost effective for your budget. Sure, an island vacation to Tahiti is high on everyone’s lists but is actually not achievable for many. So what can you do that is still romantic, fun, adventurous and lets you unwind? Here we run down how to plan the perfect road trip getaway for you and your partner.
One of the first things you will want to consider when planning a road trip is the location. By location of course, we mean the route and the country in which the road trip will take place. That’s right – country! Just because you’re going on a road trip doesn’t mean you need to do it in your own backyard. Some countries with great road trip opportunities include Ireland with the Ring Of Kerry, Canada and the Trans Canada Highway, the USA and its historic Route 66 and the Australian outback from Adelaide to Alice Springs. So which will you choose?
Choosing the right vehicle can make or break your road trip adventure. Depending where you go and what you want to see and do will determine the type of vehicle you choose. We suggest renting an RV or small campervan due to their ability to provide all the comforts of home while driving long distances. Particularly popular in North America, many RVs or camper vans come with small bathrooms, eating areas, kitchens and sleeping areas making them the ultimate road trip vehicle choice.
Sightseeing In Between
What you want to see will determine where you stop. Often times on road trips the best parts are the sudden, unexpected stops you make in dozy towns with fifty locals where you find the best hamburger of your life, or a campsite overlooking a gorge you never would have found otherwise. Planning where to stop is part of the fun! Try to fit in some secluded spaces where you can be alone with your lover, overlooking beautiful lakes and valleys for some romantic one on one time.
No Plan? Best Plan!
Sometimes the best plan is not having a plan. It allows you to be much more flexible and ‘go with the flow’ which can be a huge adventure for you and your lover. Having no plan allows you to explore random possibilities that just pop up on the trip, sometimes resulting in seriously amazing experiences that you wouldn’t have had if you had created a cemented plan and stuck to it. Awesome, right?
So if you’re already starting to think about your next romantic getaway with your lover, why not consider a great road trip? With so many things to see and do along the way there’s never been a better time to consider this unique holiday idea. With several destination countries to choose from as well, you can still travel abroad and take advantage of the freedom of the road.
