Road Trip Packing Checklist & Essentials
In this episode Myra talks about the packing essentials for any road trip. While this list may sound very exhaustive, please keep in mind that this is considering longer road trips as well. While for short ones which could be for a weekend, you could skip on a few items - we would still advise having some basic items in your car always.
Lists are a lifesaver whenever you are planning a trip, be it things to pack, attractions to check out or local specialties to try out. So we got our heads together to come up with an extensive road trip packing list for you. What you pack depends on the destination, time of the year and number of days you are traveling amongst other things.
