Not much to do while travelling

This is a post I wrote on Sunday and you are getting it this morning, Tuesday aren't you lucky.

I wish I had my digital recorder with me, as while we are driving with nothing much to do I keep thinking of things I would like to write about but of course by the time we stop those thoughts are gone. So I found a note pad and paper and will try jotting down the topic that springs to mind and hopefully I will be able to take that and turn it into a post.

While we have been driving I have been reading a bit, but I can only read for 30 minutes max before I begin to get car sick and many times after only 10 minutes I have had to stop and take a break for 5 minutes.
We don’t have a TV in the motor home, ok that is not 100% right we have a TV lying flat at the foot of the bed but we do not set it up for one main reason there is no TV reception, my parents watch a lot of DVD’s while they are travelling.

Tim has been watching the old Moonlighting series which he has downloaded onto his computer and I have been writing things on the computer and in my diary and reading. This is fine with me I love to read, mum says they get a lot of reading done while they are travelling as well.

The morning I am writing this I was up and dressed by 5.45am, Tim is still in bed asleep and I have little to do but either write or read.

You are having good, peaceful days. I, too, like some days without tv at all. Brings peace to the mind~

Reading takes me away. I need that sometimes.

I wish I could read in the car. But it makes me so sick. I like audio books tho.

Hugs!

I also get car sick if I read for too long, the audio book does not make me sick thankfully

I agree it is terrible, which is why I can only read for short period of times

I like to look at the scenery when traveling if I am not driving. I can read in the vehicle as long as I hold the book up to eye level and don't look down, a bit like sailing on a ship in not calm sea, look to the horizon as it's said.

It takes a while to slow down, doesn't it? I find that's true for me when I go on vacation.

I don't mind looking at scenery but I also enjoy reading

Yes it does but when we do it can feel great

Update on mum
