fun games to play while traveling

During traveling, there are some parts when all we do is sit around, like during a long bus ride. While looking out the windows and taking in the passing scenery may be enough for some (or some time),  others get restless from being still for a long time (like me). So don't waste a moment and put in a bit more dose of laughter, learning, and good vibes to your trips with these 7 fun games to play while on an adventure:

1. SOS
What It Is
Or Sketch-O-Sand. Like Pictionary or Guess-a-Sketch except on sand. 

Best Time and Place to Play It
On the beach

What You'll Need
- A tiny portion of the beach
- A stick or any "sketching" implements. You can use your hands
- At least three categories e.g. Places, Food, Movies

How Many to Play
At least two

How to Play and What You'll Win
A player chooses a category and decides on a word or phrase related to it. The same player then announces only the category he or she has chosen. In 60 seconds, the player "sketches" on the sand a picture that represents the word or phrase he or she picked. No letters allowed. The others will then guess the word or phrase. The first person who guesses correctly gets a point. Players then take turns on sketching. The person who makes the least correct guesses will cook or pay for the next meal.

2. CHUBBY HIKER BUNNY
What it is
Exactly like the Chubby Bunny game except the stakes are higher.

Best Time and Place to Play It
When you're on a hike and taking a food break

What You'll Need
- Marshmallow. Lots of them
- Water. Lots of it since you'll need to wash all that marshmallow after

How Many to Play
At least two

How to Play and What You'll Win
Players put a marshmallow in their mouths and try to clearly and audibly say the phrase "Chubby Hiker Bunny." Repeat. The person who says the phrase with the least marshmallows in his or her mouth is the loser and will pay the tour guide fee.

3. ETA
What It Is
Test your calculation skills and power of foresight with this game. 

Best Time and Place to Play It
During commute, whether it be land, air, or water, especially when you're stuck in traffic or your flight just got delayed 

What You'll Need
- Any form of moving transportation

How Many to Play
At least two

How to Play and What You'll Win
The game only begins once the vehicle starts moving. Each player gives an estimated time of arrival. The player who has the closest guess without going over is the winner. His or her companion/s will buy his or her next meal.

Another player follows by saying a word, this time beginning with B. And so on. The person who fails to give a word pays for gas, the fare, or your next meal.
