Let’s face it, getting from point A to point B is not the fun part of traveling. Unless of course you’re traveling in first class on Singapore airlines and you dished out 23,000$ for your airline ticket. Having said that, there are ways
to make your bus ride more interesting.
Here are tips and tricks to make the most out of your bus ride.
Call your cell phone provider and get a data plan
Most restaurants, hotels and cafés will provide Internet access which is quite nice. The only problem is that you
can’t bring these fine places with you when you’re roaming the streets.
All cell phone companies have inexpensive plans that will let you consume data on your existing plan.
Download Netflix movies for offline viewing
Streaming movies on your data plan is never a
good idea unless you can dip into Mark Zuckerberg’s bank
There are cases when streaming data is a fantastic idea such
as trying to make your 2 year old stop running around the
restaurant or maybe you’re on a horrible date and you can
watch old reruns of Sex in the City.
We recommend you that you download movies on your
phone or tablet to make your trip more enjoyable. And don’t
forget your earphones.
Bring a pillow and blankets
Bringing a small pillow and a blanket maybe the reason
you decide to send us a love letter.
There is absolutely nothing worse that being tired and
can’t find a way to get comfortable.
Download mobile apps before you go.
We recommend you install travel apps on your cell phone
before you start your trip. There are so many awesome
travel apps that will make you save time, money and
will greatly enhance your travel experience.

Stay positive and don’t sweat the small stuff
Life is full of surprises and it takes all kinds to make a world.
Knowing this, we recommend you have the “I’m going with
the flow” attitude and keep smiling.
When problems arrises, think who the best person would
be to solve it and don’t let anything ruin your

Salt Lake City Olympics because mechanical problems and
continuously kept being bumped. I met awesome people, and
watched the games with strangers that became friends.”
