COMPETITION TIME! Win a years supply of Febreze Car #drivehappy

We love to take a road trip and as I've just been on one down to Cornwall, (Hi from my beach cottage!) I felt I'd share my experience.  I'm nearly 30 and have never been to Cornwall so as a family getaway we rented a cottage in Bude near Widemouth Bay.
We have been on a string of driving adventures (including a spontaneous drive to Paris for the Tour De France) and my Nick is the main driver with me the navigator and food provider. I lost y driving license I'm 2012 after being diagnosed with Epilepsy which as you can imagine was rather frustrating, but soon after Nick passed his test and the rest is just history.
We were actually heading straight from Cornwall to catch a flight abroad, so two holidays back to back... You should of seen the car it was rammed to the roof of stuff so leg room was limited to say the least.
One thing I can't stand about road trips (apart from limited leg room) is driving through a mass amount of smells... And not good ones.  I always find you will get tyre smells, cow presents and hot bodies after being in the car too long. Yuck.
For this journey my lovely friends at Febreze sent us a car air fresher to see if it made our trip better.  Now before I go any further I'd like to point out hat normally I can't stand car freshness as they always smell the equivalent of a bad perfume or aftershave, which both ultimately leave me feeling sick and with. Headache... Not ideal if travelling for hours in confined space.

The one Febreze sent us was called blossom & breeze. It's quite small in size and slides onto the chosen air vent of your choice. Very light smell that isn't over powering and certainly helps keep the car smelling fresh for a long journey.

  Preparing for a roadtrip
If you're driving somewhere for a vast amount of time chances are boredom is going to set in.  If it's only two of you then you can't nod off, (been told that's not fair) you have to keep the driver entertained and trucking on.  

Top tips for the passenger
Bottles of water
Percy pigs (other sweets are optional but you can't beat a Percy Pig) 
Cheesy driving tunes

Wear comfy joggers 
Lose tshirt
Big socks 
Iced coffee (you will often need a coffee stop along the way) 
A map just in case the SAT NAV dies or has a paddy
Phone charger as these tap dancing phones never seem to last
Some easy engaging driving gaps... eye spy
