The forecast is always similar every long holiday: be prepared for the heavy traffic along the various expressways that lead out of the metro and into the provinces. This is something you expect but that still doesn’t change that you are going to get stuck in soul-crushing Holy Week traffic.
So between the heavy traffic on your way to where you plan to spend the long weekend, here are a few ways you can keep your cool while you move at a snail’s pace.
Grab a bite
For long trips like these, it’s a good idea to grab a quick snack while the queue at the toll booth progresses slowly. This can be food that doesn’t require as much attention while eating so you can still move along.
Pack water because the summer sun isn’t going to be kind even if you are in an air-conditioned vehicle.
Listen to an audiobook or audio drama
If you’re traveling on your own and there’s heavy traffic grinds, you can take the time to listen to some of your favorite actors and actresses read some of the most awesome works of fiction out loud, or perform plays tailored specifically to be listened to.
Put on some music
No out-of-town trip is complete without a soundtrack. You can either queue up a playlist you assembled the night before, and subject your friends or family to a crash course in your kind of music.
It’ll keep all of you from being bored if you get stuck, and you may end up exposing family members and friends to music genres that they never thought they’d like.
You’ve seen Adele and One Direction do this with James Corden. Put on an artist that you all like and kick out the jams! If you’re driving, keep your eyes on the road still but feel free to lipsync along.
There are many ways to keep cool and avoid road rage, and accidents that are sure to cause a dip in your finances due to car insurance claims.
Keep calm, and remember that the heavy traffic shall get lighter to the open road going to your destination.
