Whether you're driving, flying, sailing, or a combination of the above, traveling can be both exciting and stressful at the same time. However, your trip can only go as good as as bad as your prepare for. Here are a few scenarios we can all relate to:

You've gotta have the best road trip songs! If you're not ready, you'll be listening to your parents picks, which almost certainly excludes today's best bops. Plus, with Netflix, the time will just fly by! This is the best excuse for binge-watching out there.

You may or may not feel this way. As someone who wants to get to their final destination as quickly as possible, this is what frustrates me about traveling in large groups. Someone ALWAYS has to use the bathroom every thirty miles.

Bring On The Road Snacks

This is probably my favorite excuse for eating junk food that I normally wouldn't eat. Except Dunkin Donuts. You can never have too much of that.

Pillows and Blankets Are Everything

It doesn't matter if you're flying or driving. Sleep will be your best friend if you have a long journey ahead of you.

Everyone Will Probably Hate Each Other By The End Of the Day

It's just what happens when you cram people in tight spaces for hours on end.

You'll Start Looking For That One Good Texting Buddy
