My parents love to drive places. I absolutely love airports and would choose to fly in a heartbeat, but there is some charm to road trips – one being that my habits for overpacking aren’t that much of an issue because I stuff my suitcase full and bring another bag if I want to. Also, my mom always packs the best snack collection in the game. Our trip to Louisiana over holidays to visit both sides of the family is by far the longest trip we make. A whopping 14 hours can be super intimidating to a newbie road-tripper, but my dad and I can do this trip in a day if we needed to. I wrote this post a couple years ago for spring break, but I thought I would update it and talk about how I survived the latest saga in the Whiten family road trip.
