Travelling long distances on a bus can become quiet and lonely, causing the hours to drag on forever. However, having something to do and to distract you can go a long way in making your journey more enjoyable. Here follows some suggestions on staying entertained while travelling on the bus.
Read a book
While reading in a moving vehicle can induce motion sickness for some, it is a great way to pass the time for others. Especially if you are travelling overnight and need something to help you fall asleep. From mystery novels to fantasy to non-fiction, a good book is sure to draw you away from the long hours on the road and into another world.
Do Sudoku, Wordsearch and Crossword puzzles
Some magazine publications sell books full of puzzles which will provide endless hours of entertainment. Filling in a crossword puzzle or figuring out the number in a sudoku puzzle will help keep your mind busy.
Watch a movie on your phone or IPad
With the incredible mobile technology these days, you can watch a movie anywhere, anytime provided you have a device to watch it on. Kindly take note that we accept no responsibility for lost or stolen goods. If you are uncomfortable with using your phone on the bus, some buses have screens showing a selection of movies to keep passengers busy.
Listen to some music
Music can be a great way to relax and help you fall asleep during overnight journeys if you are feeling restless. Just listen to music in such a way as to still be aware of your surroundings and when your bus stop draws near.
Get some work done
Be it research, answering emails or practicing for your next pitch, those long hours on the road is an excellent opportunity to get some work done before you get to busy after.
