1) Research your destination
Read, read and read up on all possible nooks and corners that your destination has to offer. Get information on the best places to eat out, shopping that you cannot miss or some local trivia or legend that you want to explore. An entertaining manner to do this is even through fiction centered around your destination – like I read Angels and Demons whilst heading to the Vatican. It definitely added to the charm of that place.
A good place to take on this tip is my blog. So don’t forget to bookmark it. 😉
2) Snap out of it
Warning: This tip maybe useful only for people who are traveling on any vehicle other than an aeroplane 😉Experiment with your camera. Click your journey through. Find bliss and share your wait through beautiful pictures of your wait- whether interesting people or just pure nature along the way. Experiment in your phone, edit pictures and just preserve those memories. Here is one of the many shots from my travel –
3) Game it away
And no, I do not mean the e-games. Chuck your phone and indulge in a few mind games with a fellow traveller. If you are traveling with kids, this might help you entertain them as well. Invent some word or travel games or play the old ones. Add an incentive of the winner buying you the next break.
4) Talk it away
Make friends with your co-travelers, exchange information on new destinations, share experiences on the old ones and basically, yap it away. A Caveat- keep it simple and non personal without giving away too much information about self. We don’t want a stalker, do we? 😉
5) And finally, the fail-safe tip – Doze it off
