The sun is shining and the weather is heating up. It’s a good season to go someplace excellent, isn’t it? We can’t think of a better mode of transport than taking the bus. Travelling in high temperatures, needn’t make you feel uncomfortable. We’ve got you covered with a few tips to staying cool while travelling on a Mega Bus.
Keep iced water close
Fill a bottle with water and put it in the freezer the evening before travelling. This way, when you board the bus you will always have something cool at hand while staying hydrated. Always avoid drinks with a high sugar content.
Avoid salty food
Salty food leads to a dry mouth which requires you to consume more water. Soon, you’ll be out of your water supply. See our snack smart tip instead for a healthy, affordable and cool snack.
Wear light clothes
Light goes both ways in this scenario. Summer isn’t the season to be wearing black. Wear light coloured clothes that fit loosely. White would be the ideal colour as it doesn’t attract the heat of the sun as much.
Chop your favourite fruit (apples, berries and papaya normally work well in this case) and put them in the freezer a day or so in advance. These make a tasty, versatile and healthy snack to keep you cool throughout your journey on the bus.
Put your lotion and sunscreen in the fridge
We’re back to the fridge again. Keep your sunscreen and any other lotion in the fridge. When you apply it to your skin, you will cool down immediately. Remember, just because you are travelling on a bus, it does not mean that you are hidden from the sun so be sure to apply sunscreen before leaving your home.
Make use of a battery operated fan
These ingenious devices have been keeping people cool for ages. Invest in a small, portable battery operated fan and use it to keep yourself cool while travelling in high temperatures. Hey, you can also always opt for the old-fashioned cardboard fan, however, be careful not to exert yourself.
