700 km in the car with the kids

DAY 2 was …easy!? Our goal was to get through Poland in one day. It sounded unreal!  We are going slow (80 km/h – otherwise the caravan shakes the car) and Janis isn’t feeling good.

We started from Alytus, Lithuania and ended in Łozina, Poland at 2 am! We can’t go any further – it was terrible for all of us to sit in the car for such a long time (with few bathroom brakes). Also, we got in the traffic jam. And for the first time, I really experienced what does it mean traffic jam! Those so called traffic jams in Latvia is… nothing!!!

For girls, it was terrible to sleep in car seats but I can say – it is easy to travel with my girls. We did crafts and coloring. Also the “I spy” and didn’t have any “screen time”. Yes, you read it right – no computer or phones or other smart devices! Since I and Janis are in IT (Computer geeks) we know how damage it can be for children.

There are lots of things you can do in a car without smart devices. Yes, you need to be prepared but it’s worth it.

We had our sun set at McDonald’s cafe…. it was the closest cafe πŸ™‚

Now, I’m the only one up and have to manage the breakfast. Outside is windy and it’s raining. Brrrrr it’s cold! Only 13 degree Celsius.

In the middle of the truck parking…
