When it comes to road trips, my most favourite things are the views! 🙂
It’s almost as if you are going through countless mini-destinations before getting to THE ONE. You know, like the appetizer before the main course. A lil’ extra side dish, if you will. Okay, okay… Hahah! I’m gonna stop now. 🙂
Here are a couple of pointers to help you plan your next road trip:
1. Good company.
If you have a say in this, make sure you pick people who bring out the best in you and vice versa.
2. Comfort is key.
Go for loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. And remember to keep warm if it’s cold, especially during the morning and evening hours.
3. Cue the music.
Carry your favourite playlists along with you because you can’t always rely on the radio.
4. Stock the snacks.
Potato crisps, banana crisps, apples, grapes, passion fruits, groundnuts, water, juice… pretty much everything you can carry.
Lastly, you’ll need to find a way to keep the memories of your trip. And what better way to do that than to take lots of pictures. So make sure your cameras and phones are fully charged and ready to go! 🙂
Always be kind.
I love safaris. I love adventure. But most of all, I love nature. Just the other day, while studying for my pediatrics class, I drifted off and started daydreaming about the gorgeous mountains in Canada surrounding pretty little lakes, the amazing landscapes in Iceland filled with breathtaking waterfalls, the beautifully sculptured canyons in the USA…
I’d love to see all these places one day.
Ok, now back to this post. There are a couple of things to note when it comes to dressing right for a safari. One: You need to be comfortable. Like very comfortable. Two: You need to blend in with the environment (think browns and greens) to avoid disrupting wild animals. It’s for your safety as well. Three: You need to be well fed and hydrated because safaris are exhausting.
Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll need to wear:
1. Hats & sunglasses
To protect yourself from the sun.
If you’re planning a morning or evening trip, you’ll need to layer up since it’s most probably going to be chilly. Otherwise, a t-shirt will do for the day.
Keep these long to avoid scratches and bites.
Sneakers are the best option.
Just a small backpack to hold your essentials like water and cameras.
Always be kind.
