Have you inspected the coolant level to see if there is any change or its dropped a little?
Was the Air Con problem something that just started during this event or been a problem before hand?
Did this happen whilst stationary or just driving normally?
yeah it should be just a little over the half way mark on the tank...normally if steam is seen coming from the engine bay could be a sign that the engine maybe overheating or coolant flow issue, bad thermostat or failing water pump or even the cap being faulty and this causes the coolant to boil and escape as steam..so you may want to have that checked and maybe before you do your journey as a good garage locally to do a pressure test on the system to ensure the coolant system doesnt actually have a leak as such...They may also want to check the main fans on the radiator/a,c radiator if those arent kicking in then that could be your problem along with the A/C so again those things need to be inspected....other checks id say is the air conditioning belt.....but as above doing long journeys with a possible coolant system fault isnt wise,i wouldnt really advise it in all honesty....its best to have it checked out before hand than rather risk being stranded and further expense if the engine blows a headgasket if the problem progresses any further to excess coolant loss/overheating..the steps above doing those checks and the pressure test should only take a garage with the correct equipment a max time of an hour and see if anything found after which....
