Only Latino Dads Make Their Family Go Through All This When Road Tripping

Family road trips are one of dad’s favorite activities. A car full of food, family and the open road, what’s not to love? Here’s a look at what we all remember from going on a road trip with dad.

Your entire family gets a 4 a.m. wakeup call.

He crams, like CRAMS, your family car.

That means… you get away with a trunk ride!


Because road trips aren’t an option.


He doesn’t stop with the selfies.

And you sing rancheras till you cry.

He depends on you to be his old-school navigator.

He brings his Thomas Guide and expects you to navigate. Yes, old school maps because he’ll definitely lose signal on his cell phone. You’ll have to remember how to read the map first, of course. Wait, do you even remember how to unfold it?!

Then there’s those moments of golden silence.

Actually, more like awkward silence because los papás son de muy pocas palabras. Maybe he’s just enjoying the view?


Hotels? Not with papá.

He creates his own tourist attractions.

He always finds the most random things on your trips and makes the entire family take pictures with it.

Nothing ever gets in the way of papá and his destination.

Something inevitably goes wrong either to your car or a stranger’s, but he always fixes it.

And thanks to his stubbornness, he creates a lifetime of these memories.
