When I think of my younger days, it is with fond memories...actually, most people remember their high school days with nostalgia - it is a time when one did not have responsibilities, could go anywhere, could eat anything without putting on weight and could do anything without anybody raising the eyebrows. Even the law is lenient to the young.

Travel Tips: Things you need on an American Road Trip

When I think of my younger days, it is with fond memories...actually, most people remember their high school days with nostalgia - it is a time when one did not have responsibilities, could go anywhere, could eat anything without putting on weight and could do anything without anybody raising the eyebrows. Even the law is lenient to the young.

One of the activities that make us remind these days is a road trip. While you can always have a road trip even when older, you will not have as much free time on your hands. You have to find ways of making every minute that you spend on the road, in the night clubs, in the parks and attending festivals count. Below are a few things that will make your road trip even more enjoyable.

1. Maps

You do not have the luxury of getting lost like you did when you were younger. You can either have a car that is GPS enabled and directs you to your destination or a smartphone which has a GPS app. The old hardcopy map is no longer in use.

2. Download some travel apps

In your smartphone, you will need apps that show you the best eateries, the best nightclubs, the best games, translate some languages for you and more importantly - tracks your expenses. There are hundreds of travel apps that can help you do this. A good example is the Expensify App which help[s you track your expenses.

3. Entertainment

Can you imagine driving hundreds of miles without some form of entertainment? Get your iPod and download your favorite music. Have on your playlist and listen to it as you drive.

4. Carry some snacks

On the road you will need to eat something. Sometimes you will be using back roads that do not have some restaurants. Carry some burgers and sandwiches to have on the way. If you are travelling with the kids, you will be amazed at their appetite. Trust me; you cannot afford to buy them something to eat every time they are hungry.

5. Other Essentials

Toiletries, sunglasses, medication, some formal and casual clothing, hand sanitizers, towels, and many more are some of the things you will need during your road trip. Remember the things you used to buy when going back to a boarding school? Get all of these.

A road trip, especially when you have recreational vehicle, is the cheapest way of seeing America. You do not have to pay some boarding fees and you can even cook for yourself. If I were you and I really love to travel, I would get an RV and pack off my family to an American Road Trip
