TRAVELING? Here are some things to bring on a long bus ride.
On a long trip, you’ll need refreshments, but stopping for fast food is a pretty surefire way to feel bloated not to mention the digestive horrors which may visit you afterward.
Whereas buses usually make a few stops and let people buy something to eat, some of these eateries tend to be expensive. Pack some snacks and drinks – it’s much cheaper.
Bring a book with you
If you’re into reading, bring a book with you to keep you entertained during your ride.
Earplugs and an eye mask
Earplugs and an eye mask will help you stay undisturbed during your trip. Other passengers might get noisy or turn on and off their light.
Bring tissues to wipe your hands and face.
Pack a big scarf or light blanket
A blanket can help you get cozy and help you sleep during your bus ride. Also, the blanket is a life saver, as it can get quite cold especially during the night.
ALSO TO NOTE;
Wear comfortable shoes
A pair of shoes that are too tight or uncomfortable in any way can make every moment of the journey quite miserable. A good pair of shoes, on the other hand, can get you through even a long, bumpy journey. Alternatively take off your shoes.
Choose your seat carefully
The ride is usually bumpier in the back, so choose a seat in the middle or front.
Take advantage of stop overs to get off the bus and stretch. This will help you feel less worn out once you arrive to your destination.
