I'm getting ready for, what I think will be, the most epic road trip of my life. I love packing and have been making lists for weeks. These are some of my favorite things to bring with me on a sight seeing road trip like this.
I love my Olympus camera, but even using your iPhone or downloading a cool video app to document the trip. I love the VHS app. it makes it feel like the 90s and its weird how your vacation looks so much cooler on a VHS than in HD.
This is obvious. and if you're traveling with multiple people who use multiple electronics, one of these might come in very handy.
Music aka Spotify
I use Spotify Premium (although I'm testing out Apple Music) but for a long trip Spotify is a must. even if you don't want to use up data, you can make playlists available offline.
Use the road trip as an opportunity to multitask by downloading audiobooks of those titles you've been putting off reading.
If you subscribe to Audible, you can get your first audiobook download for free!
Mace or/and Weapon of Choice
At some point we will probably on the road at night or at a sketchy gas station so some kind of weapon for self defense is important.
First Aid Kit.
I made my own out of a combination of things I already had, and the target dollar section. A few things you can include.!
anti itch cream
Splurge Item: Polaroid Printer
I bought this Polaroid printer on a whim but I actually really love it. and it's light weight enough to travel with.
