Road trips in movies always seem so epic. You travel with your best friends and you play muisc really loud while the wind blows your hair and a long the way you meet people who in one way or the other change your life. By the end of the trip, you and your friends are closer and you become an all round better person because of the hours of time you get to spend thinking, bonding and having an all round adventure.

But in reality, road trips, especially in Nigeria are more like horror movie than a romantic comedy. Between the crazy traffic and the bad roads, it’s kind of hard to have the time of your life like they do in the movies. However, you can make your trip a little less horrific by making sure you have everything on this list before you start your journey.
