Road trips are fun and exciting. You have the chance to see different places across several miles. Some people prefer driving and enjoying the road than flying even when the latter takes only a few hours depending on the distance.
You can travel with friends and or family members on the road. It is best to do when you have a special someone. It is your chance to be away from everyone else. You have the opportunity to bond and know each other better.
The problem is that road trips might take several hours depending on where you are heading. You might get bored and tired after several hours. These are the tips to remember to keep the trip fun, exciting and romantic for the two of you.
Have a clear expectation
Dont expect a lot of kisses and hugs throughout the trip. Being romantic does not necessarily involve these gestures at all times. You need to learn how to manage your expectations, or else you will get disappointed. At some point, you will feel tired. You will run out of topics to talk about. Despite that, you need to be okay. If you are on the road for the next ten hours, you cant expect fireworks all the time.
Divide responsibilities based on what you can do
The first thing to do to make the trip romantic is to lessen the possibility of fighting. Before you leave, you need to divide the responsibilities with one another based on your strengths. If both of you are driving, you need to drive alternately. If someone is good in planning a trip, that person needs to handle all the details. The person assigned to do a task needs to be responsible of it and be willing to take the blame when things dont go well.
Apart from the responsibilities, you also need to discuss finances ahead of time. It is one of the reasons why couples on a road trip end up fighting. They did not have a clear plan on how to divide the expenses ahead of time.
Try something new
You already know each other. You know what the other one likes and dislikes. Perhaps, it is time to try something new and exciting during your trip. If someone hates getting lost, you could try an alternate route where you need to figure out how to get to your destination. If another person does not like exotic animals, you can visit a zoo along the way. Pushing each other to try something new could be a source of fight, but if you overcome it, you might thank each other.
Dont forget the alone time
Again, you will be together for several hours. You dont want to feel tired of each other. Giving each other time to be alone when possible would help a lot. Dont force yourself to be romantic with each other. You dont need to shower each other with gifts. Being romantic during the trip is when you allow each other to grow as a couple and as individuals.
Anything can happen during the trip. You need to relax and enjoy each others company.
