You check the time, and it’s only been 17 minutes since you checked time last time, and it seemed like an hour? This post might help you to get out of that pain of feeling lonely. You can try different things while traveling and find out which suits you the most.
Your Mobile phone or Laptop
When everybody has the time killer device who gets bored while journeying? Well, even though these portable devices are great for work/fun while journey but few people recommend switching off the phone and not take any other devices to enjoy the journey. While some just don’t prefer them between journey. So you can move ahead and watch other alternatives.
A very popular thing to do, it was the best thing before mobile phones took over. Now you can read on your laptop or your mobile device. But a hard copy has its own fun in it. You can read anything; it can be a newspaper, magazine, your favorite author’s book or recommended novel of your friend.
People who like to read probably would love to write. And while traveling, you can write articles, stories, poems, etc. You can even write documentary or your own daily diary to record your best moments with the words. People who like to write should take the surface to put under your notebook.
Another good idea for being with your hobby and pass your time and not get bored for even a second. If you wanna sketch, you can take all the sketching materials like pencil set, rubber, sketch papers/sketch notebook, etc. Don’t forget to make the scene you are seeing.
