Stopover on a road trip

Postby Alexandoy » Sun Jun 25, 2017 8:20 pm

When we go on a long distance road trip, our refuge at night is the motel or inn. But we have several bad experiences with motels like bad air conditioning, dirty room and facilities. What we do is to park the car in a gas station and get some sleep. And then we freshen up before continuing with our journey.

Well I say that any stop over is a bad, but then again I am bringing years of negative experiences and an overall cynical attitude to the table. I suppose maybe it is an adventure waiting to happen, but still.

When it's nightfall and there is still long distance to cover then a stop over at a nearby hotel, inn or motel becomes inevitable whenever we journey. Agreed some of these places especially at the rural communities could be messed up but you really don't have a choice but manage until the next day. I don't know how secure passing the night at a gas station will be.

I cannot make long journeys by road. I need to have a break in between especially in the night so as to catch some sleep. Otherwise I end in severe nausea and motion sickness.

But I would prefer to opt for a good guest house rather than sleeping in the car. A little extra money I spend is all worth the good affects and convenience it brings to my travel.

We have rarely go for road trips where we have to spend night at some place kind of hotel. Either we go for over night driving or we choose other option for travelling. But yes we do stop at many restaurants and good natural spots for time spend during road travelling. Driving non stop is kind of headache.
