Enjoy these fun Road Trip Conversation Starters for your next vacation!
A long road trip can be super fun or it can be a horrible experience. It really depends on a few factors on what can make or break a road trip. One of the big things is the people you go with.
A good conversation can make a huge difference on a road trip. Driving with people you know really well is great, but a conversation can run dry after many hours. If you’re in a car with new people it can be hard to figure out what to talk about. That’s why conversation starters are an awesome thing to have on long trips.
I personally hate a boring car ride where no one talks, especially if I am the driver. I drove 10 hours with a group who didn’t really talk. It’s was NOT fun.
Like it was a traumatic experience. I still twitch when I think about it…
So, to make sure that doesn’t happen to me again or anyone else. I have created a list of “25” conversation starters for your road trip. Feel free to pick and choose from the list or even tweak them a bit. Make it into a little game.
It’s a fun way to go deeper into your current relationships or avoid awkward moments with new peeps. Try not to answer the questions cut and dry.
Creating a good conversation is not about answering questions, but learning about each other more by expanding what we talk about. Nothing is more of a killjoy then yes or no answers.
