If you are a keen traveller then you will know that a lot of the time, it is about the journey as opposed to the destination. That being said, when you are dealing with cramped aeroplanes, cramped buses and even just bad rideshare experiences, you may feel as though you need a break from time to time. If you want to help yourself then this is the guide for you.
Have a Great Streaming Service
The first thing that you need to do is try and find a reliable streaming service. Being able to listen to music while you are on the go is a great thing, and you may find that you can take the time to find some new songs too. Having a streaming service that gives you the chance to connect to multiple devices will really help you out, not to mention that it will also help you to find the right music for the right mood. Ideally, you need to make sure that your streaming service is supported in any country that you know you are going to be visiting. Having a service that is ad-free will also help you out a lot here, so keep that in mind.
Quality Movie Streams
Before you even leave for the trip, it is a good idea for you to download some of your favourite TV episodes, so you can watch them on the go. Having access to some good movies will also help you to stay entertained too. Having a reliable TV and movie service can make you feel a bit closer to home if you know that you are going to be travelling far away, and this can be a major comfort for long travels. If you are a fan of sport, why not see if you can get access to some South African Rugby coverage?
Take some Books
When you do your pre-trip shopping and all of your packing, you need to try and make one of the destinations you go to, a bookstore. Books can work wonders if you want to read to your kids and you may even find that it helps them to feel the comforts of home. The great thing about books is that they do not require a reliable internet connection, so if this is questionable then a book may well be the best option for you. If books are not quite your thing, then try and consider taking some magazines or even some travel guides with you. This will help you to read whatever you need to know about the country in bursts when you are on public transport.
Play some Games
Did you know that it is more than possible for you to play a huge range of games in the car or even on the plane? You don’t even need an internet connection or a device either. Games such as I Spy or even Simon Says will keep your kids entertained for a very long time and you may even find that it can give them the time, they need away from the electronic screens you have packed. Depending on your mode of transport, you can also take card games and board games with you as well. Just try and take ones that have minimal pieces.
