Life is a highway. Hop into a car with your friends and drive through the open road. There is so much to see. So many places to explore and so many memories to make. Some of the best conversations happen in the car.
We went for an epic road trip with my friends from Nairobi-Nyeri-Naromoru-Nanyuki-Meru-Chuka-Embu-Nairobi. This was arranged by my friend who wanted to surprise his girlfriend Mayah for her birthday and boy, wasn’t she surprised. For the rest of us, it was a great reason for us to see the country as well as spend time with our friends.
Make a Playlist
Designate someone to choose hundreds of songs that will be perfect for the trip. Choose songs that everyone (if not majority) knows/likes and can sing along to. Spread out the genres and choose songs that evoke happiness and road-trip vibes. Songs can change the entire mood of a trip. Put it on blast and sing along. Do not be afraid to stop in the country side and dance on the side of the road. Try some Kygo mixes or download some SoundCloud Jams. The best road trip songs ever! Wireless mini speakers come in handy.
Choose & thin your squad.
Choose the people who will accompany you for the trip if you are the one planning the trip. This also depends on the type of car you have. Remember that you will be locked in a car for hours with these people. For us, it was easy to choose because we have all been friends for years and we all have love for each other. The less, the better. This will ensure that the trip goes seamlessly and it makes planning easier.
