What To Do When Electronic Devices are not Allowed
Plane rides are usually boring, especially when you have no choice but to sit there for more or less eight hours. To make things even worse for the bored traveler, electronics are banned while the plane is on the air. Actually, there are non-electronic things that people can indulge in to make flights less boring. All you need to do is be more creative and here are five suggestions, but hopefully you can think of more ways.
The first suggestion is to read. Bring a book inside your carry bag when going on a trip. A long flight is the best time to catch up on your reading. Another option is to read magazines. If you do not have book, you can buy magazines at newsstands. Somewhere inside most airports there are newsstands where you can get a newspaper, a magazine or even a book. If you want to be creative instead of buying something from a newsstand, why not make your own magazine. There are plenty of online resources that help you design and print magazines containing your own original creation or contents that you have curated from the web. Through this, you can enjoy reading your own work to keep yourself entertained inside an airplane.
Where there is nothing else to do, you can daydream during your trip. When you are immersed in so much work, your mind wonders off and you end up daydream. Long plane rides are your chances of doing that. You can even combine what was discussed earlier with this suggestions. Simple put, you can imagine what you could have done if you were the editor of the magazine you just read.
The next suggestion may be fun for those who were born with a talent in art. Before going on a trip, take a drawing pad with your so you can doodle if you are not good at drawing. So far, no one has been banned from using color pencils during flight so why not take them with you and use your creative genius. Then again, you can sketch how the cover would look like if you were to make your own magazine.
Moving on, you can craft something inside an airplane. A few suggestions include making paper crafts called origami. So bring with you an origami booklet and lots of paper for endless origami fun inside the plane. Better yet, make your own magazine that contains all the origami instructions that you want to do while on a plane.
Last but never the least, write during the trip. Take your journal with you so you can jot down random thoughts. If you want to make your own magazine, you can brainstorm and write a list of ideas on a piece of paper.
These are a few suggestions on what you are free to do while in an airplane. Make you own magazine before your vacation by clicking this.
