10 Road Trip Tips from an Ex Delivery Driver

Recently there just seems to have been so much negativity around.  First there was Brexit, then there was the US election (yep I was lucky enough to live through both, I emigrated between the two events) and I’ll be honest that I’ve not always exactly looked at my life in America in a positive light.  Considering it’s Thanksgiving, what better time to write a post about the small things that I should be thankful for?!
