From Jack Kerouac’s On the Road to the classic film, Thelma and Louis, the road trip has always been a filled with the feeling of nostalgia, friendship and exploratory liberation. Somehow the confined moving space of the car calls forth a romanticized intimacy in the midst of empty chip bags, half finished coca cola’s, a cigarette dangling from your fingers and tunes you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
When you’re on the road there are no rules, no responsibilities. You’re wandering with direction. With your belongings in tightly sealed in the trunk you feel invisible, briefly living on the road, laughing with your girlfriends and letting go.
Embrace this adventure, but of course not without flair. My top 3 items of choice to bring on a road trip would be: a good playlist, a bit of honey and a change of sunglasses.
