Welcome to the 3rd episode of Season 2 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik.  A road trip is just not about arriving at the destination. Neither just about having a good time on four wheels. It is an opportunity to break free from your mundane routine. It is a chance to explore the unexplored. Those carefree days speeding on highways or dirt roads clear your head. Driving has a therapeutic effect and gives you that chance to introspect.Sometimes a road trip may not even end as you had planned. But if you can reflect back on those memories with a smile on your face and a silent tear in your eye, then it was all worth it.If nothing else, a road trip most definitely teaches you some life lessons that no form of formal education will ever teach you. In this episode Myra talks about 7 life lessons only road trips can teach you.Original Blog post about road trip life lessons (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/7-amazing-life-lessons-only-road-trips-can-teach-you/) was written by Shalini Mimani on our blog.A bit about our super epic road trip plannerScoutMyTrip allows 25 points on a single map compared to 10 that Google offers.

Welcome to the 1st episode of Season 2 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik. In this episode Myra talks about the packing essentials for any road trip. While this list may sound very exhaustive, please keep in mind that this is considering longer road trips as well. While for short ones which could be for a weekend, you could skip on a few items - we would still advise having some basic items in your car always. Lists are a lifesaver whenever you are planning a trip, be it things to pack, attractions to check out or local specialties to try out. So we got our heads together to come up with an extensive road trip packing list for you. What you pack depends on the destination, time of the year and number of days you are traveling amongst other things.When you are packing for a road trip though, there are certain essential things you should remember to pack to make your time on the road fun and comfortable. So here we go with the road trip packing list essentials by ScoutMyTrip.. in the voice of Myra.Road Trip Packing List EssentialsMedical KitCar Emergency KitMulti-port USB car charger and USB cablesWet wipes / Hand Sanitizers / Liquid soapWaterSnacksPlastic bags that seal / Shower capDisposable glasses, spoons & platesSunscreen / MoisturizerTorchTowels, pillows, bed sheetsSpecs/contact lensMusic PlaylistReading Material or a KindlePen, Pencil and NotepadMaps and Directions (Preferably offline)Loose change and cashMiscellaneous boxOriginal article (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/road-trip-packing-list/) written by Aparajita Mitra published on the ScoutMyTrip BlogLinks from the podcastFind Toilets on Indian Highways (https://scoutmytrip.com/trip-planner/)Road trip food to keep you going (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/road-trip-food-to-keep-you-going/)Hindi Road Trip Songs (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/hindi-road-trip-songs/)Rock songs for a road trip ( https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/road-trip-songs-rock-volume-1/) (Volume 1) A bit about our super epic road trip plannerScoutMyTrip allows 25 points on a single map compared to 10 that Google offers.

Welcome to the 12th and the final episode of Season 1 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik. In this episode Myra talks about one of the niftiest innovations in the technology space to hit Indian Highways - The FASTag! Haven’t you been seeing the FASTag mentioned on the news pretty often? In fact, it was recently declared that the FASTag will be made mandatory in a few months for all vehicles. So what exactly are the uses of a FASTag and why should you get it?The FASTag (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/uses-of-a-fastag) is essentially a reloadable tag that allows you to pass through toll plazas without having to stop to pay the toll charges by cash. The FASTag allows automatic deduction of the applicable toll charge from a linked prepaid account. The tag works on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. Once the tag is activated, it is attached to the windscreen of the vehicle. From thereon, you can go through toll plazas without having to stop, and the charges will be deducted automatically. It is currently functional at 420+ toll plazas across the country.You can read more in the original blog post (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/uses-of-a-fastag) published on the ScoutMyTrip blogA bit about our super epic road trip plannerScoutMyTrip allows 25 points on a single map compared to 10 that Google offers.
