Beat the Travel Boredom


Whilst travel is a wonderful thing, there’s no denying that from time to time the travel boredom kicks in. Whether it’s a particularly long car journey, a train which takes forever, or a long haul flight, time can seem to slow right down, and all you really want to do is get to your destination, so the fun stuff can start!

Thankfully, there are many things you can do to help the time pass a little faster, and it all comes down to thinking a little outside the box.

Online fun

We can’t deny that playing games while on travel is definitely one of the most effective ways to kill boredom. There are various types of games you can choose from, from action packed ones to skill games and some were also great on entertainment with a benefit. One is where you can play bingo online at William Hill and not only pass the time whilst travelling, but be in with the chance of winning too! All you need is a reliable online connection, which many long distance buses have in many destinations, and simply register to give it a go. If you win, you could put it towards enhancing your travel plans further, perhaps trying a new experience you otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford.

Load up your Kindle

Whether you have an actual Kindle tablet, or you have simply downloaded the app, load up your library with books and enjoy the peace and quiet, immersing yourself in a new world whilst you wait to get to your destination. You’ll probably find that time passes much quicker this way too.

Film it up!

If you have a good online connection whilst you’re travelling you can log into your Netflix account, but alternatively you can download films before you go and watch them whilst you’re travelling. Again, escaping into a story will make time go much faster whilst you wait.

Start a blog

There is no better way to document your travels than by blogging it! Use the spare time you have whilst waiting to get from A to B to start up your blog, doing the hard work to actually design the layout and figure out what you’re going to put in it. You never know, this could be the start of a totally new career for you! Taking the writing vibe a little further, have you ever fancied writing a novel? Why not start now, whilst you have the time!

Passing a few hours will certainly ease the onset of travel boredom, and will mean that your trip overall is much more enjoyable, less stressful, and also means that you’re ready to start the adventure side of things quicker, without the boredom hangover!=
