When I discovered the Chainsmokers last year I knew they would one day make the playlist to an epic road trip. I lived this dream when I woke up at 4 a.m. Saturday morning and went on a little excursion with some new friends.
Many people like the idea travel and the general assumption is that travel has to be expensive and destination exotic. Over the years my family and i have managed extensive road trips within the region. My best memories were made then.
I have been itching to be back on the road since forever. However after planning my vacations in December I realized that there are two aspects to travel that we fail to separate. Travel and Adventure. I have realized is that I enjoy adventure more than travel. The latter has more to worry about in terms of planning and preparation and while I can be OCD about organisation I end up obsessing and spiking my stress levels.
Adventure is less planned, more random and way cheaper than a proper trip.The thrill of leaving my bed before dawn to catch a sunrise is exhilarating and keeps me refreshed throughout the week. Discovering new old places and making friends is the best part of it.
There is nothing more relaxing than just being able to get on the road and go. Pack a picnic or eat by the roadside the choices are endless just don’t stop chasing the adventure. This weekend just in case you’re thinking about being bored alone in the house. Take a ride out of town for two hours in any direction: Wake up early and look for a spot to watch the sun rise or set: Carry your alcohol and your friends to one of these recreational parks and let me know what you discover!
Just in case you’re wondering I’m wearing a basic Instagram Baddie look. Black bodysuit on black riding pants with a Kanye Green jacket and Adidas superstars. We will definitely discuss the lace up bodysuit from H&M on a different day but until then follow me on Instagram @Pisces_TwentyTwo
You never know where I might be this weekend. No doubt though that is where the party is at! I don’t have to tell you what my resolutions for 2017 are, the writing is clearly on the wall.
