I can never sleep while traveling. I have even tried traveling by bus on midnight, but I was still not able to sleep. I think I like to look outside the window and view the scenery too, because it makes me relax. And when I get to my destination, that's the only time that I get to sleep.

When I was a kid, I always sleep when I travel but now I enjoy not to, I come to love seeing the scenery outside the road... Someway somehow it relieves my stress.

Hello Vine. I do enjoy traveling whatever mode of transportation it is. Whenever I choose to take a bus and the trip will several hours, I couldn't help to sleep. Traveling by land makes me feel like a baby being cradled in a crib! Haha!! But yes, I agree with you, it's fun to take a bus so you see the view outside.

Hey vine! I am like you are! I don't like to sleep either when I am traveling in a bus or car! I like to look out the window to see the sights and nature from the window too! I love to look at the trees and flowers and people! And on the bus I have to watch out for the "crazy" people! And I also have to watch out for the stop where I need to get off the bus!

There have been times on long bus runs that I've been tempted to do so. But, I didn't. If I fell asleep I would miss my stop and not know what is going on. Not a good place to be. I've missed stops before, and that's why its important to be as alert as possible.

When I travel on a bus going to a place I've never been, I don't sleep. I love to take pictures of the sceneries. I live in city all my life so seeing and smelling green grass sometimes is really a relaxing experience for me.

I enjoy traveling by bus. When traveling at night and "leaving the driving to us" I am always awake and vigilent when the bus goes through the mountains of West Virginia. In my lifetime, I've ridden with two people who fell asleep at the wheel. Thankfully, nothing bad happened and we just went to the side of the rode before we all woke up.I've been awake when riding at night with another driver ever since.

I'm also like you,I love nature-tripping,sightseeing alot!..But somehow I tend to get asleep sometimes in my travels..Maybe I get tired fast. And it is frequent now that I'm twenty-plus...but during my teens,I always get excited everytime I'm sitting beside a window of the bus! I usually talk my seatmate for the whole duration of the trip about things and places our bus have recently passed upon..I'm hoping my alertness would come back to me again so I can enjoy those experiences!

It's not easy for me to sleep in a moving vehicle of any kind, but I have slept in cars, buses, trains and airplanes in my day...

Yes, I sleep because if I won't i will throw up. I easily get dizzy especially when traveling so whenever i travel i push myself to sleep. But whenever I am awake and can't sleep I watch the nature around me, enjoy watching it, as long as I don't feel dizzy yet.

Hello vine88, It is really fun traveling in the bus or car especially if you are visiting a place for a first time. I also would not like to sleep when I go to a place for the first time. I am so excited to see that different views outside, nature is fun to look at and very relaxing. But if I just travel here in our place, from our home to our office, or to my relatives' home, or maybe going to the shopping mall, I can't help but fall asleep, especially if I wasn't able to get a complete sleep. Take care and have fun posting -- red_amethyst

i cannot remember sleeping in a bus or a car when traveling. even in a plane. but i have slept in a ship. i guess, i am also one that wants to be alert at all times when traveling and wants to see the places, the nature.

I too think the same way like you. I want to see the nature outside, how the houses are, nature is, any mountains or rivers on the way.Sleep is always there. Site seeing is a rare thing which we cannot get always.

I absolutely love sleeping while someone else does the driving. Especially on public transportation. I hate back seat drivers while I'm driving and dont want to be a backseat driver for someone else. Also, if you sleep while getting to your destination, you will we alert and ready to enjoy your journey once you arrive.

The only time I will fall asleep on a coach is - if it is late at night and I know there are many miles to go until our destination. It's never for long though as I find it uncomfortable. When I have been in the car (with my husband driving) I have never fallen asleep as I would be frightened of him falling asleep too..which isn't a good idea when driving! I do like to watch the scenery as you do. I'm not one of those people that has to be doing something like read when I travel anywhere; I'd rather just concentrate on looking at the great outdoors through the window. One place I find impossible to sleep on is an aeroplane. We were lucky enough to purchase the larger seats to Vegas a couple of years ago but I was too excited to sleep...even though we were ages up in the air!
