#MySundaySnapshot – Scenic Stop 11/52 (2019)

Welcome to this weeks #MySundaySnapshot post, a recently launched blog-linky that you are more than welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you fancy taking part.

Having a child with travel sickness can be stressful for both the child and the parent, especially if you happen to the one behind the wheel. To avoid danger or disaster (by which I’m referring to my daughter plastering herself and the upholstery with puke) I’ve become accustomed to making a number of stops whilst on the road with my little lady.

Over the years I have found a number of scenic side-roads and stops at which our little lady can either have a short stroll, take a breather or empty the contents of her stomach whichever she pleases. 

Whilst travel bands lured E into a false sense of a security for a short space of time, it seems they no longer have much effect, thus our fifty-minute journey to the hospital earlier this week took a little longer than originally planned. As we wandered along one of E’s many ‘sick stops’ I became rather aware of the time and E’s impending appointment, I therefore used snapping shots as a distraction for my daughter. It seemed to do the trick and we were both punctual and without puke!

#MySundaySnapshot - Scenic Stop 11/52 (2019)

We may stop once, twice, three times or more dependent upon the weather conditions, the speed of traffic or what she ate for breakfast… it’s like playing the lottery really – you have very little chance of winning! I’ve tried all-sorts of tips and tricks when we travel but I’ve come to the conclusion that sticking a bowl in the car and adding the time for a few stops along the way seems to be the only solution.

“There is a road
Beyond this one
It’s called the path
We don’t yet take
I can feel how it longs
To be entered upon
It calls to me with a cry
And an ache
As we go along this one
And we live the way we do
Love pulls us on to that
Distant horizon so true”
Horizon (There Is A Road) – Suzanne Vega

    That sounds really hard! My daughter feels sick when travelling, but was only actually sick a couple of times on a car journey when she was 4 and on a little boat trip on the sea when she was 7. She always takes medication if she’s going on a coach, mini bus or train – for some reason trains are worse for her than cars.
    Glad the distraction helped her and this is a lovely photo.

    Bless her that’s so tough. My nephew used to travel everywhere with a bowl but eventually grew out of it xx #mysundaysnap

    That must be really tough. We are always driving long distances to visit our family, so it would be a nightmare if ours suffered with travel sickness. I hope as she gets older she will grow out of it! Lovely pic x

      We travelled to London once- it was quite stressful to say the least lol

    That must be tough, on both of you. Hopefully it will be something she grows out of. Beautiful snap though, fabulous idea, getting your daughter involved x

      I soooo hope that she grows out of it !

    It’s good to make the most of having to stop all the time, but I’m sorry your daughter suffers from travel sickness so badly. Thanks for hosting x

    Oh no! Travel sickness is no fun at all. What a lovely view on the stop off. I hope the hospital appointment went OK. x

    No travel sickness is no fun, my nephew and mum both get it on long journey. Great shot though xx

    I used to suffer really badly with it and the only thing that helped was sitting in the front or the middle seat to look forward. Still the same xx
