Having made this 19 hour trip more than a handful of times, I’d like to think I have a few tips to share when it comes to incredibly long car journeys. In just over a week we leave for Hungary and poor G will be doing all of the hard work, but that does mean when I’m not sleeping I will have to fill my time wisely so I don’t go stir crazy.
Laptop – I will be using this along the way but due to the lack of internet won’t be able to blog but I can write posts up in word and then transfer it over. There will be a few hours where G stops and sleeps so I thought I could pop into the services, use their wifi and get some posts written or photos edited. And let’s be honest so I can check up on social media!
Make-up bag – This is actually a pencil case from skinnydip (via ASOS) but it still does the job. I’ve only put in what I describe as the “essentials” for a very long car journey, which includes my REN lip balm,. face and hand wipes, hand sanitizer, perfume, gum and of course tampons & pads as unfortunately I have to do this journey during my lady time.
Nike Benassi Sliders – I added these into this post because these will only be worn outside of the car, I’m one of those people who takes their shoes off in the car. Only so I can curl up on the car seat and snooze easier!
