Travel essentials: Car trip

I am going to visiting my grandmother soon, and to get to her house I have to be in the car for almost five hours! I have some special things I like to have with me when I am sitting in the passenger seat trying to survive a long car trip, so I’ll give you travel essentials: car trip edition.  
Picture from WeHeartIt, but edited by me.
This is the most important thing in my opinion. If you have a long (or short) car trip in front of you music is a lifesaver. The best way to waste time is just to plug your earphones in on be in your own little world while listening to your favourite music. Trust me time will fly by in the matter of no time, or you will end up falling asleep, which also is a way to make time pass easier!

Another great way to spend a car ride is to read a book. Unfortunately I get very easily carsick, so books are a no go for me. I wish I could read while being on car trips because it would make everything so much funnier! So if you are luckier and can drive and read without a problem, then remember loads of books.   

Drinks & food
If you are on a long car journey - especially in the summer –  you will need something to drink as sitting in a car when it is really sunny outside is horrible. So always remember to keep hydrated  - a thing I am absolutely rubbish at since I always forget to drink enough water.  Food is just always nice on long car trips, whether it’s “real food or snacks you can never have too much of it.   

Cleaning wipes
During the day at home when it’s hot I like to wash my face with cold water just for the refreshing feeling, so when you are tuck in a car a cleansing wipe is a must for me.

If you are in a car for a long time and let your thoughts be all around the place, maybe you will be hit buy some great ideas for your blog so always keep a notebook near! Again me getting carsick keeps me from doing this in the car, but if I am on a train I love to write ideas down or just doodling like a crazy.

What are your essentials for car trips? Let me know it the comments

  1. Music music and more music! Nothing like a good sing a long to your favourite songs on full blast!

  2. I'd say music & snacks are definitely on the top of the list. A good road trip playlist will work wonders! :] // ☼

  3. That's exactly what I take when I travel by car. I take a book (even though I too get carsickness very easily). Great post. Keep up the good work.
