An Open Road | Enjoying a Couples Road Trip


Going on holiday as a couple is all about enjoying that time together. But going on holiday with your significant other isn't always easy. But what if you want to do something different? Rather than hanging out in a holiday home why don’t you go on a road trip? When it comes to a road trip it's not the typical holiday experience. And with this in mind what are the things you need to know so you are able to enjoy the open road with your significant other?

Plan the trip together

Planning a road trip is more in-depth than a regular holiday. Because you are both going to be spending a lot of time together in a car you both need to have equal input. So by planning together, you are both getting involved in the process but it can give you the opportunity to get excited together. Even when it comes to the practical components of preparation it's a good idea for you both to get involved rather than leave one person to do the boring admin. When it comes to going on a road trip to another country you are going to have to rent a car. And there are companies like Burswood Car Rentals located in Australia to help you get the most out of your travel experience. But this is why you've got to remember that planning the trip together requires both of you getting involved, even in the boring bits.

Be careful not to over plan

If you've never been on any sort of road trip before you have got to remember that a lot of it is to do with spontaneity. The best way to plan a road trip is to know your route and if you decide to deviate from it you can get back on track so you know where you are heading to next. When you plan everything to the letter there is no room for freedom. Taking an opportunity to go off the beaten track can help both of you, especially when you are doing a long stretch of boring road. And let's face it, driving on a long road for hours can get pretty boring.

Spending time as a couple 

You're going on an adventure together so think about the areas where you can go on your route for you to be a couple again. Being in the same car couped up for hours on end can make you look at your partner in a different way. It's important to remember that time as a couple is crucial. So think about places where you can go for meals or have a nice date night. And even if you're not going through big cities if your journey is exclusively rural or remote you can take the opportunity to go for a picnic and spend some quality time together.

A road trip is a different sort of holiday where you are not just hitting the open road but you are opening yourself up to the other person. You might be surprised that even if you've been together for a long time you will learn new things about each other! And this is part of the adventure...
