Out-of-town with friendsOut-of-town trips can be fun and exciting, especially once you arrive at your destination. But what can be gruelling is the long journey it takes to get there. Most people crash in bed once they reach their destination, mainly because the travel time was quite long. Below are a few tips that can make the bus ride, drive or flight more bearable:

Wear Comfortable Shoes

Whether you are driving or taking the bus, wearing comfortable footwear is crucial since you will be sitting or driving for hours. Stick to sneakers, comfortable flats, or orthopaedic shoes if you are flat-footed. If driving long hours, opt for boots or hard-soled shoes.

Pack Sleeping Essentials

If you have a favourite blanket or cashmere travel set from Everyday Cashmere, make sure to take it with you, especially during a bus ride or flight. This can make you feel comfortable and make it easier to catch some needed sleep or rest during the trip.

Cashmere is a good choice of fabric since it feels smooth and luxurious against the skin. This is why it’s a favourite material for sweaters and lounge wear.

Take Turns Driving

If you are driving from one state to another, make sure to take turns driving. It’s best to set a schedule before leaving and plan if for how many hours each one of you will be driving. If you are travelling alone, make sure to take a break every two hours at a truck stop.

Bring Some Food and Toiletries

When packing for a trip, always make sure to include toiletries such as toilet paper. Keep a bottle or two of water handy, and throw in some snacks, in case you get hungry along the way.
