Tripoto

With the rise of travel as the new billion dollar industry, the society, every now and then, will rub it in your face that it is the most liberating experience. But don't believe it completely.

Travel as a form of recreation can elicit a mixed bag of emotions: excitement, happiness, fear, and boredom. Yes! Believe it or not there will be times during your travels when you will get bored.

But don’t let the fear of being bored prevent you from reaping the benefits of travel. Instead, try these easy and fun ways to cope with boredom and get the most out of your adventure.

1. Indulge in some good old reading

Whether it's a newspaper, a fully-charged and fully-stocked Kindle, or a carefully-chosen novel, reading is one of the best ways to pass time while travelling on a long journey.

2. Watch a movie or a TV show on Amazon Prime Video

From exclusive Bollywood and regional blockbusters, to Hollywood movies, US TV shows and award-winning Amazon original series, you can watch it all on Amazon Prime Video. The best part? You don't need an active internet connection for it. You can watch movies and TV shows on an offline mode when you download selected titles to your Android or iOS devices.

My pick: With the 'Best of Amazon Prime Video in 2017', you'll never be short on something to watch. Options include Newton, Lipstick Under My Burkha, VIP 2, Inside Edge, Biswa: Mast Aadmi, Young Sheldon, The Vampire Diaries, and Baahubali: The Lost Legends.

3. Listen to a podcast

Not many things in life are as enjoyable as listening to a podcast as you gaze at the clouds outside your window. So, get a few TED Talks, or download your favourite podcasts before you hit the road.

4. Strike up a conversation with a stranger

If merely watching your fellow travellers gets boring, start talking. Human stories are always intriguing, and you might learn a few things about life after the conversation ends.

5. Catch up on some sleep

Your travel time will feel like it has significantly reduced if you sleep on the journey. And trust me, if you're someone who can easily sleep while travelling, no other activity can be as good as this to kill time.

6. Write letters to your loved ones

Why not invest the free time on your trip to write letters? Pen down your thoughts and later, you can share the letters with your loved ones.

7. Plan your vacation

If you didn't have enough time to do any planning prior to this trip, do it while you're en route! Save links and information beforehand on your phone and use this information to put together a rough itinerary.

8. Grab a colouring book

If you haven't already tried one of those adult colouring book, there is no better time to do so than the holiday season. According to research, colouring can be a therapeutic activity and help you relax and relieve outside tension. So before your trip, grab a colouring book, some coloured pencils, plug in your headphones, and get creative.

Hope all these fun ways will make your journey a little less boring. If you have any ideas to add, leave them in the comments below!
