We car folks are all alike: our happy place is behind the wheel. I personally love to cruise for hours in total silence, save the hum of the road and rev of the engine. I’ve also been told that a key component of romantic relationships is sharing your favorite parts of life with your partner. So far, I haven’t found anyone who wants to binge-watch The Real Ghostbusters cartoon series for an entire weekend while remaining completely silent and subsisting solely on coffee and Fudge Stripe cookies.
Anyway, sharing a quick drive or a long road trip can be deeply personal, if only because it’s so relaxing and joyful. Here is a collection of stories we’ve done this year on two-seat rides that will perhaps inspire your next romantic road trip. Even if you stay silent together.
