Are you hitting the road this Easter? Somewhere new, back home to see the family, or off to your favourite holiday location? Are you thinking about some useful gadgets to keep the kids, adults and maybe four-legged friends happy in the car? We’re off to see family and friends a two hour drive away. This travelling party only consists of two adults and a Pomeranian called Paddy, but all three love a bit of entertainment as we travel.
Our favourite car journey artists can include anyone from James Morrison, Pink and Blur, through to Hot Chip and Radiohead, so we like to access and play our own favourites from our phone and Bluetooth speaker. Paddy always looks like he’s smiling and nodding along in appreciation as we blast out the lyrics very badly!
