When summer comes around it seems like J & I are constantly on the road.Whether we are heading to see family and friends on the Sunshine Coast or driving out to Kelowna to visit our favourite wineries, there are a few road trip essentials that always make our road trip more comfortable and enjoyable. Of course, we pack along the essentials like some tasty snacks (dried mangos are our favourite grab and go snack!), our iPod, a map and our camera. Aside from the basics, we also always pack a few items that always make for a more comfortable journey, I like to think of these as my luxury road trip essentials.
Road Trip Essentials
Foot Lotion This sounds really odd but honestly if you’re in the car for the long haul, pack along some foot lotion. My favourite is The Body Shop Peppermint Cooling Lotion. Simply just put a bit of foot lotion on, tuck your feet into your slippers, and you got yourself an easy on-the-road spa treatment. This little DIY spa treatment will ensure that by the time you arrive at your destination you’ll have beach ready feet. It’s like having a mini spa on the road!Audio Books or Podcasts: Rather than just listening to music on our trips we also listen to books and Podcasts. If you get motion sickness (like I do – terribly) this is a great option rather than trying to read a book while on the road. Plus audiobooks and podcasts will entertain both you and the driver, unlike a book.
