January 26, 2019

It’s so much fun to travel by train. You get to sit back and relax while enjoying the scenery from the comfort of a warm train cart. Whether you’re riding in an Amtrak style train or an older style train, travelling by train is very enjoyable as you get to experience beautiful scenery along the path to your destination.

Today I’m going to share a few fun things to do while travelling by train so that you can stay entertained during this ride to your destination.

Bring a Journal

Write in a journal during your trip on a train to document your thoughts or feelings. Perhaps you can use a journal to write down any sights that you see or write new short stories of your experiences during your trip by train. Having a journal to write it will keep your mind busy during this trip.

Make Friends

There are often many others travelling by train that you can reach out to and connect with. Take a moment to make a new friend while travelling by train. You can discuss destinations, previous train rides, and experiences during travelling with those on the train to make new friends.

Window Gaze

This can be extremely fun when travelling by train if you’re going long distances. There are many sights to see outside that train window. Take a moment to enjoy the breathtaking views as the train travels along the railroad tracks towards your destination.

Bring a Book

Reading a book is always a favourite pass time when travelling by train. If you’re not feeling very social or much into writing in a journal you can bring a book or two to read while travelling by train. This is the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of the train passengers.

Play Games

If you have a smartphone or tablet you can enjoy some games on your devices. Be sure to download the games prior to departure. You may also want to bring along old-school Sudoku and Word Search books along with a pen or pencil pack to have some fun while travelling by plane.

There are so many fun things you can do while travelling by train. I hope that my list of fun ideas will help inspire you to enjoy the next train ride you have towards your destination. Having fun while travelling by train will surely help the time pass quickly.
