We are real road trip fanatics! We love driving. The loud stereo playing our favorite playlists seems to soundtrack the journey. The road, sometimes paved and sometimes rough, always reserves unexpected and incredibly beautiful views.
Moving, moving from one place to another, visiting places that are difficult to reach by other means, without schedules, without stress in total freedom. Stop in a small bar not even marked on the maps to taste something typical and ask for information or stop in the largest motorway restaurant to have breakfast and read the newspaper. These are small and big details that make us love traveling on the road!
Over the years we have learned how to organize ourselves; we often forgot something that we were then forced to buy or we neglected to bring other things that would have made the journey more comfortable.
This is why we have prepared a small reminder of essential things or things to do absolutely to tackle a road tripin any season of the year.
- Power bank
- Water bottle
- Energy microdrinks
- Soaked wipes
- Hand sanitizer
- Road map
- Blanket and pillow
- Cooler bag
You must always have something available that allows you to charge your mobile. Often the journeys are long or in any case you travel on an adventure so you do not know the travel hours before the stop or hotel accommodation. For this it is necessary that the mobile phone is charged and allows you to call or receive calls or even connect to the internet, perhaps to access driving directions or find the number and address of a facility.
At first we hardly remembered water, then we became addicted to the bottle and we always carry it with us! Our favorites are inOSSIDABILE WATERDROP STEEL bottles, which maintain thevery fresh water for 24 hours. Essential for us in the car, at the sea, during the coast to coast but also in the mountains because the water bottles Waterdrop are also perfect for hot drinks that stay at temperature for about 12 hours!
Water bottles are the alternative to the usual (harmful) plastic bottles and these have a very modern and essential design, it is no coincidence that we also keep them in the office and during business meetings.
Precisely because we love this product and can ensure its convenience we contacted the company to ask them to provide us with a discount code for you, so that you can try it
With the code BEBOHEME5 you are entitled to a 5 euro discount on a minimum purchase of 25.00 € and for now it is valid until 30/09/2020.
Have you ever tried the energy Microdrinks? In our opinion, the following are essential during long journeys:
- they help withstand the heat
- they give you the energy you need to drive for many hours
- they help keep you hydrating throughout your trip.
To tell the truth we have tried many and in the end we have always chosen those of Waterdrop because they have the most pleasant taste ever, they dissolve quickly in water and give us the load of vitamins we need especially in the heat.
Also in this case, to try them you can use the 5 euro discount code, BEBOHEME5!
Why do we recommend them among the things to bring onroad trips? Simple! the packet of normal handkerchiefs is not enough: these help you with sweat, to clean your hands after eating but also simply if something spills in the car, for example coffee (we know something about it), to immediately dab the stain or clean what may have become dirty. In short, do not forget them absolutely.
This is also one of the things that over time we have learned to take with us on long journeys. It is essential, for example, when you eat in the car or maybe after using the bathroom in a motorway restaurant (where soap is often missing)or after an excursion. We always carry it, and there is one fixed in the car.
We have learned that it is essential not to always rely on technology. Especially in the open countryside, along streets or paths, 3G and 4Ggo down. For this it is necessary to always have an extra reference to avoid getting lost and wasting time.
Often in our travel guides we have listed some things to take with you absolutely during excursions or days on the beach, among these there is the cooler. This is also essential during aroad trip: it will allow you to keep packed breakfasts and water well, but it can also be useful for some medicines, in case it is particularly hot inside or outside the vehicle.
Blanket and pillow
For very long car journeys, it is essential that from time to time we take over driving and allow the other to rest in the best possible way. This obviously does not give you the authorization to remove the seat belts but at least you can relax a little and in the most comfortable way possible.
Francesco has forgotten them so many times that now he never takes them out of the car. When the journey is long or the itinerary includes many stages in one day, as often happenson coast to coast, then fatigue must be taken into account. Never leave without eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Obviously, in addition to all necessary checks before departure (oil, tire pressure …)we remind you what you must always keep in your car:
Things to always have in the car:
- Car documents … of course
- High visibility vest
- Spare wheel or tire repair kit
- Some plastic or fabric bags (believe us they always come in handy)
- Paper towels
This is a list of things that we never do without but we would like to know what, in your opinion, should never be missing for traveling on the road. What are you bringing? what do you forget on time? On the other hand, what are the things you can’t do without on the road trips by motorcycle? Please let us know absolutely, we are very curious !!!
