Travelling is great fun and is something everyone should do in their lifetime. Every country you visit will have a unique selling point to it, whether that’s the culture, the food, the landscapes, weather conditions, scenery or things to do. 

When you are travelling, there will always be moments where you will have some downtime and would like to relax and entertain yourself for a while – it may be on a car journey whilst you are on a road trip and heading to your destination, it could be when you are flying or when you are relaxing by the pool! 

There are so many different things you can do to entertain yourself. You can read a book, watch a film on your mobile device, play an online game like Minesweeper or practise an exercise like Yoga. If you are stuck on what to do and are looking for some inspiration, here’s our guide to entertaining yourself when travelling. 

Watch a film or TV series 

An easy thing to do when you are stuck on ideas is to watch a film or start a new TV series. Everyone has a mobile device these days, making it easy for you to sign up for a streaming service. When you start looking for a series, you’ll hopefully find something you can get stuck into, which you can enjoy throughout your holiday. When signing up for a streaming service, look out for discounts, as often there are some available. 

Practise an exercise routine 

For the moments you are by the pool, chilling in your living room or have some spare time in your bedroom, find an exercise routine that you can do. Many people enjoy doing yoga or pilates as this can be done in the comfort of your own room and it requires very little equipment. YouTube is a great place to start if you are interested in any tutorials that you can try out to see if you would enjoy it. 

Read a book

Do you enjoy reading? Why not invest in a few books that you can enjoy while on your breakaway? There are so many different types of books out there, that no one can say there isn’t a book for them. You could read an autobiography of someone you follow, a fiction book or a nonfiction book. If you don’t have enough space in your luggage to carry a few books, then an E-Reader may be something you are interested in. 

There are a whole myriad of things you can do to entertain yourself. What may work for you, might not work for someone else, therefore it’s important you try out a few different things to see what you enjoy most and what works best for you.
