It seemed our city put more money in building commuter lanes, which is two or more people per vehicle, to encourage ride sharing. However, people's schedules and lifestyles don't always match-up, so the commute lane is underutilized while the other lanes are still congested. Traveling by automobiles has many advantages, but during commute hours it seemed there just might a better alternative.
Another way my family define traveling, or transiting would be to a vacation destination. We know better to buy the trip cancellation insurance, because sometimes things don't always work-out the way you plan. With each of us living at our different phases in life, we never know who might need to cancel. Moreover, we have leaned toward buying the visitor health insurance as well because it is better to have options especially when traveling far away.
Planning for a family vacation takes a lot of preparation and tons of research. There are not many choices on the dates and prices unless you allow the kids to skip out of school. To travel when everyone is off and on vacation is a lot more expensive. And the kids are not always super excited to leave all their electronics either. Not when they can watch their favorite shows on HDTV, play games, and have the internet right in the comfort of their home. Nevertheless, a family vacation means everyone in the family goes. So it might take a lot of time to plan and costs a lot of money to pick a date that works for everyone, but it isn't the same without any member.
Thanks for stopping by today.
