I love a good road trip! My wife and kids and I love getting out on the open road whether we are only going an hour away or traveling for several days. And we have some good conversations in the car. Especially now that our kids are teenagers and always seem to be coming and going places when we are back at home.
We wanted a list of questions we could come back to time and time again, and we kept having to find different websites for new questions. So I went and grabbed some of my favorites and thought of a bunch more and made this huge list of questions so we could just bookmark it on our phones and come back to it time after time.
One way to do that is to save this page to your home screen on your cell phone. I included two videos at the end of this article that walk you through is how to do that on iPhone and Android devices.
Some of these are deep and others are funny and absurd and some of them are fantastic road trip conversation starters. I hope you enjoy them as much as our family has. Sometimes my wife and I break them out on date night and go through them as a couple.
Try them out during:
- First dates
- Family gatherings
- Getting to know someone
- Around the campfire, while camping
- On a flight, bus or other public transportation
- Game night
- Messaging on a dating site or dating app
- Texting your friends or a romantic interest
- A holiday party
- A coworker
- Work parties
- Dinner with your family or friends
You get the idea. Let’s get on with it.
