2020 has been the year of road trips really, hasn’t it?
Scott and I love a good road trip as much as the next person. But while you’ll often be admiring the scenery outside the window and making pitstops as often as you can, sometimes the long stretches of road in between can get a little dull.
So… how do you make a couples road trip fun? And what do you talk about during a long car ride?
Questions are the answer!
They’re great conversation starters and you might be surprised at how many topics can spin-off from just one simple question.
I’m always asking Scott weird and wonderful questions – at home, on the road, in hotels, when out to dinner – so I thought it was about time I wrote them all down for you.
Try asking these fun road trip questions the next time you and your other half have a long drive ahead of you and have fun getting to know each other a little bit better.
I’ve also thrown in some bonus road trip trivia questions you can quiz each other on, as well as some deep road trip questions (for when you really want to know more about each other).
Psst! Do you want these road trip questions as a handy cheat sheet you can print out or email to yourself? Sign up here and get access to all our free printables and ebooks.
