Keep a journal. Record more than a list of times and places. Use your senses to describe what you see and do. When you are given a writing assignment and have writer's block, your journal can often remove the block. You may be able to rework a journal entry to fit the assignment.
Many travel hours can be spent playing group games, which require no paper. In the “I'm going on a trip and I'm taking…..” game the first person names an item beginning with A. The second person repeats the “I'm going on a trip and I'm taking” listing the A item and adding an item beginning with the letter B. Eventually, you will make it through the whole alphabet and have 26 items in the “suitcase.” This game taxes your brain and leads to lots of laughter.
Get a map to follow your progress on the trip. It is fun to track your path along the highways and the map gives you a better idea of where you are and when you will reach your destination. You might even locate an interesting place to take your next rest stop. Information centers are great places to get new maps and other literature about the areas you plan to visit. The brochures you find make nifty additions to your travel scrapbook.
