So here is a list of thing you can do to make sure you car journey is a good car journey.
1. Safety First
To make sure that your car journey will be a good one, that means avoiding injury. So incase of a car accident, make sure you are belted up, your car seats are all placed in correctly and the straps on it are also correct. If you are using Sat Nav, make sure that it is working and that it's placed somewhere safely on your dashboard so you don't need to be holding it. Make sure you are well rested and if you do feel tired, stop for breaks.
2. Make Sure your Comfortable
Comfortable clothing is a must. there is nothing worse than tight clothing on a long journey. I suggest something warm, but loose and something made with a soft material. Last time I traveled I wore my yoga bottoms and strappy top with hooded top over it. I always get cold on car journeys, if a car is to warm then the driver may get tired and so usually on goes the air con. I usually shove a blanket into the back of the car to make sure I am warm and so then comfortable. There are also other things you can concider such as a travel pillow, which is always a big help for sleeping.
3. Make Sure you have Entertainment
Unfortunately for the driver, the only entertainment they can have is looking out of the window as they drive and listening to music. So its a great idea to make sure you have your best CD's placed into the car, or even make a mixed track list to listen too. If you are a passenger, then headphones may be a good idea if you aren't a fan of the divers music. With it being there only form of entertainment, they get first pick. For the kids, make sure you pack magazines, a few toys (non noisy annoying ones) and a teddy for them to snuggle with after that all important nap...(that you will have to beg them to take).
4. Take Snacks
The last thing you want to do is get hungry and have to go and spend a fortune at a service station. So make sure you pack some snacks, I always find things like breakfast bars, crisps, and sweets are a good option. Though maybe not the healthiest. If you are going to be driving over lunch time then why not make a packed lunch or pick up your sandwiches from your local supermarket before you go. Eating sometimes helps the boredom on long journeys. Or at least it does for me.
