Hi everyone! Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week! DCT and I are actually taking a good ‘ol fashion road trip down to Texas to celebrate with my family and boy are we excited to hit the open road! The last time we took a road trip this far was when we drove down to Charleston, right before I first started blogging for Kinks and we’ve been craving for another chance to take an extended road trip ever since!
Luckily we’re both pretty good travel buddies – as long as I have enough car snacks (the only time I ever crave beef jerky is during road trips) and have general control of the tunes, I’m a happy camper. Something about a long car ride is so soothing, there’s no feelings of being rushed and herded like when going through an airport. It’s just you and the open miles ahead and that to me is so beautiful!
It’s going to be just under a 15-hour drive, which is a good amount of time to be in a little car with someone – good thing we kind of like each other. But most importantly, a car ride this long calls for proper road trip attire – something that you can feel comfortable sitting/sleeping/singing/daydreaming/being weird in the car for hours, stopping off at random truck stops, and any other adventures that may call your name. Layers are key for me, especially when traveling to a different climate. Leggings and a loose fitting tank or t-shirt are my base pieces and from there I’ll layer on cardigans, oversize scarves, beanies, etc. And in terms of footwear, something that can easily slide on and off is a must.
If you’ve been following Kinks for awhile you’ll know I’m a big advocate for traveling – as the quote says above “The world is a book and those who do not travel only read a page“. This time of year always excites the travel bug in me and I can’t wait to share our adventures with you all! Stay tuned!
Thanks for reading! HAPPY FRIDAY!
