Luckily in the modern era, there are more ways to remove boredom. As an example, we could use GPS to plot alternate routes that are more interesting than normal ones. We could decide which road to choose while we are travelling. One good way to remove eliminate boredom is to define the proper seating. Everyone should agree on which parts of seat they would choose. If people are happy with the seating layout, it is more likely that they will have more fun during a travel. An obvious way to remove boredom is by playing game. It is more than counting license plates from specific states or pounding at other arms when we first spot a VW Beetle. We could choose smartphones, tablets, iPods and other gadgets to make car travels more exciting. Obviously, it would be less appealing to stare on the display for hours, but we could still listen to e-books and other digital content. We can also eradicate boredom by bringing favourite snacks. In fact, it is a better idea to replenish our supply of snacks when we run out of it at the next stores we find.
We would also feel better if we bring enough water. One problem with car travel is that people tend to use restrooms too often. Everyone should be able to hold it until they reach the next scheduled stops. This will make sure that we can reach our destinations faster and the trip will feel a lot less tedious. Although not everyone loves to do it, many people love to make selfies when they are in new places. The family can make a selfie contest and see who get the most responses in social media. This will encourage everyone to make the weirdest selfie and the trip will be much more exciting. There should be cellular coverage in much of the roads we travel and we should use this opportunity to connect with others. It is a good idea to invest on a display or two inside the car, so everyone can watch movies. Each designated area in the car should have one display that people can use to watch movies. To avoid fights, we should bring some back up universal remotes, in case the primary ones are missing. Hulu, Netflix and other multimedia services are now available through GPS hookup.
Another thing to keep things exciting is to start a small, non-intrusive prank. We may create a crisis and then solve it immediately. As an example, we could make a reservation at a hotel and when we arrive at the area we could pretend that we have no hotel. The vision of terror of sleeping in the van can cause quite an anxiety for everyone. In the end, they will be more than delightful when arrive at the hotel. Travelling with car can be more fun than with bus or plane, because we can control where the car should head and what we could do inside the car.
