When I am travelling in a new country or in a place I don't know I can spend many hours just looking out of the window, otherwise I usually spend the time on reading and listening to mucic. This summer my fiance and I are going to travel by bus from Hamburg in Germany to Vilnius in Lithuania, it takes almost 24 hours to get there, we have bought a lot of second hand magazines and we plan on reading them on the bus. They weren't very expensive, so when we have read them we just throw them away, that way there is room for souvenirs etc in the bag

Traveling by train by day is always interesting because I can look out of the window at the passing scenery. I really enjoy listening to music on my personal stereo. After dark I like to read a book or a magazine. Sometimes I get chatting with fellow passengers. Also when I travel by bus I look out of the window or sleep. It would make me travel sick to read on a bus or a coach. I often sit on deck when I am on a ferry looking at the view if land is in sight. When traveling by car I look out of the window and have a conversation. Traveling by plane can be boring but I appreciate the speed. I read, write or watch the movie. However I wear ear planes to avoid pain when flying so it depends if I can get the ear phones on.

Travelling in the car doesnt have to be boring at all! If you are with someone you enjoy, simply talking to them can help the hours go by quickly! Singing along to the radio or a CD can also be fun. There are also games that can be played in cars. One of my favorites has always been 'the alphabet game'. You use signs to go through the alphabet. Only the first letter of a word on the signs count. You have to call it outloud. So if you see an Arby's sign, you say "A, Arby's!" Whoever says it first, gets to use that sign for their letter. After you have A, you move onto B, and then C, all the way to Z. It is fun to play with someone else to see who can get to the end first. If there is no one else with you, you can also see how long it takes you to get through the whole alphabet. When I was younger, we often had a list of all of the states and provinces of Canada. We would watch the cars go by to look at the license plates. For each state we saw, we would cross off that one on the list. We looked to see how many we could get on each trip. When we were really young, my parents would make a list of different things for us to look for. We would cross them off as we saw them. Things like 'bird on a wire' or 'man running'. The last item was always 'Grandmas house' because that was where we were going. The sky is the limit of things you can do! Thinking the trip is going to be boring before you ever step into the car is setting yourself up for a long ride. Find ways to make it fun and soon you wont mind being in the car for long distances!
