Last year, we made a mistake of going on a road trip the day after the 4th of July. Our destination was Ocean City and we didn't thought that many people are heading to the beach as well. We were stuck in the congested traffic in Maryland. I think we were sitting there for almost three hours and it was tough especially if you have kids traveling with you.
We didn't use the full 6 days that we have booked because we were bored already after 4 days of going back and forth in the ocean and in the amusement park there. So on the fifth day, we decided to come back even though we already paid for another two days in the hotel. No, we didn't get a refund but it was okay, we want to come home already.
Coming back, we were again hit by the same luck with traffic in Pittsburgh. We were so bummed and the heat of the sun wasn't helping either even though we have an air condition on in the van.
To divert my call of nature feeling, I just started taking pictures. The GPS took us where we have never driven before in Pittsburgh so it was kind of new to me.
I just busied myself taking photos of the beautifully designed architectural buildings. I find it fascinating how ornate these old buildings are.
There's so much to enjoy in big cities like Pittsburgh. Being stuck in a traffic is not a bad thing sometimes. You just have to make use of the time you have while the car is sitting in the middle of the road.
I think if I live in Pittsburgh, I would spend a day or two just walk all around the city, take photos of the beauty that surrounds the city of bridges.
This year, we are going on a road trip again, this time we are going to Virginia Beach and nope, we are not leaving right after the 4th of July. We chose not to lol. I actually told our friend who is leaving to go to Myrtle Beach the same day that we did last year. I told her good luck and hope that they don't hit any traffic.
