Random Thoughts Inside A Van On The Way Home

I love long post titles!!! It ain't exactly catchy or attention-grabbing but it works for me. So to state the obvious, I was on my way home riding a van when I had these random thoughts...


For a weekend afternoon, traffic is still bad. Welcome to the biggest parking lot in the world - EDSA!!! If it isn't an accident or road repairs or road reblocking, it is something else. People find a way to cause traffic in the city's major highway. ***sigh***


It isn't fun travelling with two noisy obnoxious kids. I can tell from hearing the exasperation of the mom in the back seat. Note to self - bring a toy or an iPad or a game console... bring anything to keep kids quiet and busy in a trip.


Tints are overrated. Better to bring sunglasses to shield your eyes from the sun while travelling.


A trip to the moon is possible on a daily commute. Thanks to all the potholes that feel like moon craters. Good suspension in vehicles is a must. This is where our taxes is needed but sadly, DO NOT GO... thank you corrupt politicians and contractors!


I really wish I own one a VW Combi. It is the one pictured here in the post. No sadly, the van I rode on the way home was not a VW Combi.


Got to go. Glad I've reached my destination in one piece.

A writer I'm a fan of based an entire chapter in one of his books on recordings he made while driving; using the tape recorder from a friend's kid. He decided he wanted to see if such thinking was as earth-shattering and universe changing as one thought at that moment. I'll leave you to ponder what he discovered. emoticon :smile:

Oh yes, the potholes. If it were not for potholes there would be no misery. For each one I hit, I just see my car falling apart. I actually had a tie rod break when hitting a pothole. That was fun.

Traffic can be a great time to people watch as long as you are not driving. You see all kinds of things

Biggest Parking Lot in the World? The Road to Hell aka the M25 London ring road.

We also have free moon trips here in the UK.

A Kindle will keep me entertained as long as I have books loaded that I have not read.

Lol!!!! May I remind you there is somewhere in Manila where people also cost the traffic!!! hahahah not because they are crossing the street... but because no one can get through with the thick crowd! I hate it when there are stubborn kids riding the same vehicle were i ride... God bless.

Its a good thing to do to spend time while you are on a trip. I am also having a lot of random thoughts and I agree that EDSA is the biggest parking lot here in the country

Ugh, that sounds like a terrible drive! I'm glad you made it to your destination in one piece!

My sister rides in a van pool to work, although I don't think she has to deal with kids. There are plenty of irritating things about it, though, I'm sure!

Your brain certainly covered more mileage than hour van. Great you were able to make use of your thoughts.
