I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Funtivity Friday - Ways to Pass the Time on a Long Bus or Car Ride Without Starring at a Screen

We ride the bus to the City quite a lot. However, long bus or car rides can be boring. Lots of people stare at their computers, laptops, and/or phones the whole ride. However, here there are lots of ways to break up the monotony of travel without starring at a screen. Here are some of them.

1) Read - If you don't get a headache reading in a moving vehicle this is great time to catch up on your reading.

2) Listen to music - If you are on a bus, of course, headphones are necessary so as not to disturb the other passengers, but if you are in your own car and everyone agrees on what to listen to you can make a sing-along out of it. We usually take turns picking music.

3) Sleep - Some people actually sleep better in a moving vehicle if this applies to you this is a great time for a nap.

4) Play word games with your fellow passengers if you are in yourown car or with your companion if you are with someone you know on a bus, but keep it quiet on a bus so as not to disturb your fellow passengers.

5) Talk  - When you are stuck in a car or a bus together that is a good time to talk although try not to discuss touchy subjects especially if you are on a public bus.

6) Have a snack - You are not really supposed to eat on a bus but if you are in your own car you can indulge.

7) Look out the Window - If you are traveling in an area where there is a nice view, you might just want to look out the window for a while.

What do you like to do that doesn't involve starring at a screen when you are traveling ?


Tune in tomorrow for a Saturday Special.
