I went on an impromptu road trip with my parents from California to South Carolina. I wanted to document my trip with pictures. Things that I could capture with the camera that were interesting to me. I have always wanted to drive across country, it was something to see. A few travel tips I learned along the way are: Pack a cooler and lots of snacks,this will cut down on stopping and save you money. Sign up for the rewards card at gas stations, there are perks to those cards which are quite handy (money-saving). Bring pillows to help make the seats a little more comfortable. Play the license plate game, it is very entertaining and helps the driver pass the time. Have your camera ready at all times. It is a great help to have a smart phone, this helps finding hotels on a budget. If you can take your time, stop and see all the beautiful things our country has to offer.
