Tips and tricks for surviving long car trips

Guess what everyone? I’m doing another road trip! This year just seems to be full of them for me. First, I drove with my family to the bush, then I joined my dad on a road trip for his iron man race, and now we’re driving all the way from Johannesburg to Knysna and back. I’ve spent a lot of time in a car this year … Anywho, long car trips can be a great way to travel. It is cheaper than flying, you can essentially pack whatever you want, and you have more luxuries than you would on a plane, such as being able to pull over somewhere to have lunch or simply stretch your legs. Now, even though driving has all of these advantages, that doesn’t mean a long car trip doesn’t have its negatives. They can be cramped and annoying and tiresome to a point where walking sounds better. But, that doesn’t have to be the case. Long car trips don’t have to be a bad experience if you know how to avoid certain things and travel the right way. So today, given the fact that I’ve spent between two and three weeks worth of days of this year on road trips, I thought I would share some helpful tips and tricks for surviving long car trips.
