*Come, we have a surprise for you*
Can you guess which is the most performed activity by humans?
Well, I’m sure eating, sleeping, dancing must have come in the first place of your list. Sorry, to say but our answer actually differs from yours .i.e.#Travelling.
Yes, traveling is something which is loved by the majority of us; even the few who might despise the process and call it tiring would love the idea of going someplace new, deep inside down. Though, traveling is fun; exciting and interesting but it might not always be as entertaining as one wishes it to be.
You see there is only so much looking out of your window, small talk or small halts can do to free one from the clutches of boredom.So, what should one do at such times you ask? Clicking pictures, writing, and playing games on our electronic devices etc, but what after all these run out of charge?
