THE TOP TEN Adventure Weekend Essentials
You don't have to know where you're going when you set off on your adventure weekend, but it's still a good idea to know your options. Take along a road map so you can see what towns/landmarks lie ahead of you on your journey.
An adventure weekend requires the spontaneity that only a car can provide. If you don't own a car, look into car hire with Europcar for the weekend.
By taking your accommodation with you, the options are endless. Rather than having to book hotels or B&Bs in advance, you can simply stop-off at whatever scenic spot you fancy.
Of course, you're going to watch to capture all the fun memories you experience during your adventure weekend. Take along a camera so you'll have brilliant photo scrutineers of your experience.
Adventures almost always involve new terrain. Bring along your hiking boots so that you can hike to scenic view-spots during your journey.
Who knows? Where you're going, there might not be restaurants or supermarkets. Play it safe and take a portable stove and cool boxes with food along with you. Or, to reduce the amount of food you have to take with you, buy some freeze-dried meals before you go. Those only require you to add hot water and are surprisingly tasty.
Sleeping bags - or if you're going budget, the duvet from your bed at home - are a must-have. Again, bringing them along will mean you don't have to rely on hotels, but can't set up camp wherever you want to.
One of the best ways to seek adventure is via bike. Bring your bikes along with you so you can explore all those beautiful spots that can't be accessed by car.
Music (Car radio, guitar, iPod speakers, etc.)
Wherever you're going on your weekend adventure, you're going to want a soundtrack to accompany you. Take your guitar or some iPod speakers with you so you can enjoy some tunes wherever you wind up.
Your adventure weekend should be filled with activities - so make sure to pack some sporting equipment of your choice, such as kayaks, a frisbee, tennis racquets, a football, etc.
