‘Tis the season to be jolly. And for travelers!
It’s not a tradition that we do this, but a group from my family is going to road trip out to visit my Grandpa in New York this year! I am excited, but also nervous about the road conditions for our long drive ahead of us. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate with us on our journey. It is approximately a 13 hour drive, but with all the stops it will probably be closer to 14 hours. That’s a lot of driving!
Just this year, I have driven for a time period longer than 1 hour. This summer I drove 2 hours back from Wisconsin. Just last month, I drove by myself to Illinois 4 hours there and then the 4 hours back! I am surely packing in the driving experience this year.
Family is absolutely worth all the time spent driving, though! I am really looking forward to playing card and board games, eating lots of snacks, laughing a lot, and spending quality time with my loved ones! I am so blessed for my family and the wonderful traveling opportunities in my life.
I am also excited to spend time with family in my hometown as well. Even if you don’t have to travel very far…I’m wishing safety to all you travelers out there! Especially the ones with the snow!
