This is such a fun and memorable way to celebrate your birthday! Travelling doesn’t have to be far, you could even visit a famous instagrammable location near you. Just be sure to take all the precautions –

Make sure your car is in good working order and everything is well maintained and checks out. A well-maintained vehicle is less likely to break down, and means you can save on insurance (https://www.onesureinsurance.co.uk/) as well, get a reliable GPS system, have important numbers on hand in case of any issues, follow safety precautions and pack an emergency overnight kit, in case you have to sleep in your car. Be sure to cover all bases and make sure your vehicle is purring like a kitten before you set off!

Always be safe when travelling the roads, never follow someone for help and take a trusted companion along. An emergency kit should contain essentials like water, blankets and some food that doesn’t require cooking.
