It’s that time of year that you have been waiting for; the long awaited summer vacation! The only downside is the long and exhausting car journey to your destination. After only 30 minutes, boredom starts to kick in no matter what your age, so we’ve come up with some simple ways and ideas to keep entertained, meaning no more ‘are we there yet?’ Follow our advice and you may possibly even enjoy the car part of your trip!
The first bit of advice that is crucial to any long car journey is to make sure all your mobile devices are fully charged, this means that you won’t run out of battery with 3 hours of your journey still to go. For those over 21, a great form of entertainment on the move is to use online mobile casinos from your portable device. Many online casinos such as ‘Mobile Casino’ offer users the opportunity to enjoy your favorite casino games from the convenience and comfort of your mobile phone. This allows for ease of access, a great form of entertainment and if you play your luck right you may even be in for a win! However this form of entertainment is for adults only and should be enjoyed in moderation.
Like I said before make sure before you leave your house you’re prepared! This may mean updating your iPod with your new favorite album or songs; this is a great way to relax on a long car journey. You may even make a CD for the road, that is if everyone else in the car can agree on the same music to listen to! Alternatively portable devices such as Nintendo DS or PSP will provide hours of entertainment. Make sure you bring a few games so you don’t get bored; you may even swap games with a friend so you can try out some new games. This will guarantee to keep you occupied for much of the journey.
If you are travelling with someone else in the back of the car, why not bring a laptop or portable DVD player. Bring a selection of DVD’s or your favorite films or series to watch throughout the journey. Before you know it, your first film will be finished and you’re already 90 minutes closer to your destination! However be sure to bring a set of headphones or earphones so you don’t distract the driver or other passengers.
Our final tip to ensure you survive your long car journey is to make sure you wear comfortable clothes. There is nothing worse than being uncomfortable for a long period of time sitting in the same position. I would suggest wearing comfy tracksuit bottoms with a loose fitting jumper or top in case you get too hot! Also it is suggested to bring a small travel pillow or blanket in case you get tired, you will be surprised how quick the journey goes when you sleep the majority of the way.
Be sure you plan ahead for your journey, have lots of rest, keep hydrated and you will be there in no time!
