We know what you’re thinking, and yes, bus trips are much longer than plane trips and they can be very boring. However, we have some great ideas for making your next bus trip a relaxing and awesome experience.
So, whether you’re taking a cross-country trip or you’re visiting your gran in Simon’s Town, a bus trip can prove to be an exciting experience – all you need to do it be prepared.
Here are our top three ways to make your next bus trip enjoyable:
Have you been on a long flight lately? Don’t you just hate how your legs cramp up, your bottom goes numb and no matter what you do, you just can’t seem to get comfortable?
On your next bus trip, we suggest you take every opportunity to stretch your legs, take in some fresh air and have a look around.
Pit stops and toilet breaks are a great opportunity to stock up on reading material, like a magazines or newspapers, and, of course, snacks.
2) Catch up on some rest or reading
As we mentioned before, bus trips do take longer than flights, so why not use that time to catch up on some much-needed rest or finally finish that novel you’ve been neglecting?
One of the great things about travelling by bus is the fact that the seats are generally bigger and often more cushioned, which makes travelling a bit more bearable. It also makes having a nap or getting back into that book easier.
3) Keep yourself entertained
One of our favourite things about travelling by bus is the fact that there are no rules about watching a movie on your tablet or listening to your favourite radio station on your phone.
Thankfully, buses don’t use the same navigational systems as aeroplanes do which means your gadgets and cell phones can be used to keep yourself preoccupied throughout your bus trip.
Better seats, naps, time to stretch your legs and you can use your cellphone? So, when would you like to book you next bus trip?
