A Family Trip That Wont Make You Crazy? Follow These Tips!!


It is without a doubt one of the most stressful events in a person’s life – A family road trip. You hear the kids complaining, constant whining, wife telling you ‘I told you so’, your physical and mental incapability to ask for directions and the absence of anything that you need in the most emergency situation because you ‘forgot’. This domino effect is sure to make anyone swear off road trips for life. In order to make it an enjoyable experience for you and your family, here are a few tips and tricks you need to follow rigidly if you do not want to rip your hair out at the end of the day.


1. Planning the trip should be a family activity specially involving the kids so they know what will happen and what to expect.

2. Reserve rooms or lodges in advance at all times.

3. Plot the course of your road trip ahead of time using GPS applications and add interesting towns or place you can go through on your way to make it more enjoyable.

4. Keep the time check during the road trip. Its better not to go to fast or too slow so you either miss on the fun or reach your destination too late.

5. Always get the car checked from the mechanic and get the faults fixed up so your ride does not break down on the road.

6. Pack according to the trip and where you are going. It is better to keep emergency supplies with you like a medical kit and tool set.
