Other than music, how do you entertain yourself on a long trip?
With or without children in the vehicle.
I like to take and appreciate in the beauty of the landscapes. Taking the scenic route anywhere is the way to go.
It depends: I travel 2 hours each way to the office everyday so for me I actually like to meditate for part of that journey. I need to switch trains twice each time but have a 45-55 train ride that I use to do the meditation.
I tried reading or doing work but found that I'm just too tired in the early morning hours or the evenings.
If I'm the one driving, I would often travel with someone close to me, with whom I can have a conversation to keep the boredom away. Otherwise, I may switch on an audio book or podcast to listen to. I listen to podcasts on books, news, general knowledge and many more.
If I'm not the one driving, in addition to all the above, I may also read a book, since I don't have to fix my eyes on the road and I'm quite used to reading in a moving vehicle.
If I'm not driving, I bring along a crochet project and magazines or book checked out from the library, plus I just enjoy the scenery.
I like to write . I write a small story when I am alone in the hotel at night. I bring snack in case I get a little hungry after dinner. I bring my tablet to look at the internet. I watch TV. On the plane, I read and watch a movie.The rest it is in accordance with the place were we go for vacation.
If not appreciating the nature outside, I love reading and listening to music. Most of the times, it is nature that keeps me hooked.

How do you entertain yourself online (besides HubPages)?For me, it would be YouTube and Reddit. I'm a voracious reader and Reddit all but solves the problem of finding things worth reading.
