the husband + I have loaded down our car for a westward vacation. call it the honeymoon phase or just straight crazy, but we’re all about road trips. even if we are 15 hours from our destination. there is something so fun + freeing about driving. we make playlists for our trips (our road trip anthem). pack all of our favorite road trip snacks + beverages. and we hit the road.
we were planning on leaving wednesday morning, but were a little too anxious to begin our getaway. (and amazingly, ready. we’re typically last-minute scramblers). so we’re leaving today, after work. right after, because the car is already packed up. (who am I?).
we will be arriving in park city, UT tomorrow.
we’ll be spending the next 4 days in mountain town heaven. eating, drinking, hiking, shopping + celebrating! (our good friends are tying the knot on saturday). we’ve visited once before, but are very excited to spend more time.
when it comes to extended road trips, the last thing you want to do is rely on whatever the gas station or vending machine at your next bathroom stop has to offer. the husband + I fill up our car with our favorite snacks to avoid those desperately hungry moments. (and no drive-thru lines). for beverages, large bottles of water are a must. but I also like to pack non-water beverages, like coconut water + maybe a flavored la croix. you need granola bars + trail mix. we like to bring a chip + dip combo. and fresh produce; grapes are good, carrot sticks, an apple.
