Travelling is one of the recreation activity for me. I love long-distance traveling by bus. To spend 12-15 on the bus is not a problem for me, in fact, I enjoy it. I have seen most people hate traveling long distances; through this post I want them to love it.
I know there are some people who suffer some health problems when traveling long distances that may be due to sitting for a long time, air condition, etc. If you are one of them, I’m sorry this post is not for you.
The best way to enjoy traveling by bus is to make your journey interested, and the following is how you can archive that.
Booking your bus early will make you enjoy your journey. It will give you to choose any bus you want. Make sure you choose a luxury or VIP bus so as you can receive special treatment which adds flavor in your journey.
Another important thing to consider when booking is seat selection; Make sure you chose the front seat and window side. I also prefer to choose the seat on the driver side, I don’t know why.
Prepare Everything In Advance
Poor preparation will ruin your day and makes your journey bad. Makes sure you put yourself together a day before traveling. Arrange your clothes, take all of your devices- camera, laptop, and phone (don’t forget your phone charger).
Don’t forget to keep your ticket visible to avoid forgetting it.
You may consider having a checklist to avoid leaving something behind.
Wake Up Early
According to my experience, most of the long travel bus, they start their journey very earl> to avoid unnecessarily inconvenience make sure you wake up early to meet the reporting time.
Make sure you have slept early the day before. This will help to keep you active during your journey. It is very boring when you travel while you are tired. Further, you may set an alarm to avoid oversleeping.
Make sure you are simple enough to be flexible. Wear simple clothes, you may put open shoes or simple shoes, don’t carry a lot of luggage.
Carry a Book
I love reading and what I have realized is reading while traveling is the best thing to enjoy your journey. Can you imagine learning while traveling? I always carry the best book with me. Reading the best book can make you forget that you are traveling and in a bus, you can read your book without any disturbance.
The best thing about carrying a book is you may connect with people with the same interest. I have connected with a lot of positive people through this practice.
Carry a Bottle of Water
Water, works like magic in travel. Drinking water will keep you active and hydrated.
Get To Know Your Neighbor
This is the best party when it comes to traveling long distances. Make sure you talk to your neighbor to know each other. Talking will make your journey interested. Don’t force it, Make sure you say hi and introduce yourself properly so as you can be comfortable to talk.
You can talk about trending news, sports, and anything that you become interested in. You may even get a lover, who knows!
I prefer to sit on the window side so as I can see what is going on outside. I remember once I was a kid, my Dad asked me what do you enjoy while traveling by bus? Me: I love the way trees runs behind. Hahahaha!
Observing nature you will make you enjoy your journey. I feel good when I see mountains, valleys, villages, estates, forests, and other beautiful stuff.
Take a Nap
Taking a nap is a good idea when traveling long distances. You have read a good book, drink enough water, and talk to your neighbor, observing nature now it’s time to take some rest.
Napping will helps you refresh and stay active.
Eat the Best Food
You can’t enjoy your journey while you are hungry. Make sure you eat the best food ever. And always have snacks with you.
My aim was to share with you how you can enjoy your long journey by bus. The bottom line is the best way to enjoy traveling by bus is to make your journey interested, you can do so by
