I have shared a couple of our road trips during the kid-free weekends, but I wanted to share a bit of beauty behind our road trips. Not only do our road trips help us to reconnect as a couple, for we work to make sure electronics are away – riding in the car for hours on ends with smartphones put away means we are semi-forced to talk to each other. Road trips with no smartphones in hand are a great idea for any couple suffering from communication issues.
As we are two proactive people, we prefer to maintain our weekend road trips because that doesn’t let things slip away, with that being said, road trips are just fun. He loves driving, I prefer to ride in the passenger seat and as we travel all over New England we get to see some pretty cool sights. Like the photo above captured up in the White Mountains, gorgeous right?
We had some drone adventures with our Phantom Standard Drone from Gearup.io as well, some fabulous photos captured on that as well. Here’s a photo of us using the drone up in the White Mountains:
Wherever we go we find beauty in nature and have great conversations with random people. One of our most recent road trips ended us up in the Green Mountain Forest where Robert Frost actually was inspired to write some of his poetry at, more on that in another post!
There’s just something about the random conversations we have during these road trips that help keep us connected and maintaining that excitement we had for each other back when we first started dating. I cherish these road trips, and while conversation is totally random, a fly listening in would totally be shaking their head, we love it so very much.
