My family and I used to visit my grandparents in the province and I sure do feel bored during the whole trip. It's so uncomfortable being seated in the van for how many hours, it's such a burn in the butt. lolz. What i do is that I read a novel, listen to music or sleep(zZzz!)..H0w bout you?

hello eiram :-) i love long trips maybe because i rarely go on one. during long trips, i take advantage of the opportunity to see the beautiful view of natures. sightseeing takes away the boredom. i also love taking pictures as souvenir. when i am with someone, it's a nice opportunity to bond so we tend to talk about stuff or sometimes play some game. another good thing to do on a trip is eating so i tend to bring lots of snacks and drinks... those really entertain me. will not work for those on a diet though.

This is a very hard question actually, killing boredom is as arduous as killing time. Thats why a dvd player always come in handy. I can watch feel good love stories, comedy or simply listen to music. I always find it selfish to ask my friends to see me whenever I feel bored so treating myself to a good movie is my top option.

I prefer to drive or sleep. I can't read in a car as it makes me feel sick. I kind of like eating too but that wouldn't be very healthy to do for the whole trip would it? I would also rather sit in the back seat if I am a passenger. Next to a window as I hate being in the middle.
