Fun First: How to Make the Most of Field Trips

Students on field trip at the museumWhether you are a student or a working professional, you know too well that going outside can expose you to things that are fun, new and exciting. One of the ways to make the most of your time outside your classroom or cubicles is through field trips.

Field trips can encourage you to discover new things about the world and more importantly, about yourself. While some may take such excursions for granted, you can do some things that will help get the best out of them.

If you have no idea on how to do it, here are some things that will get you started. 

Plan your comfort

While the mini bus you hired in Sydney is comfortable, you may want to augment the experience by bringing things for yourself. For one, you can bring extra pillows for your neck or arm.

Avoid getting hungry by bringing food and snacks, but keep them light and healthy. A chicken salad sandwich or trail mix makes a perfect choice. 

Be curious

This is no time to be a killjoy. Do not spoil your fun or others’ by being too reserved. If an activity somewhat requires you to be dirty (e.g. feeding the animals or playing with soil), by all means, do so! After all, fun only happens when you get first-hand experiences. 


Field trips are fun, so you might want to preserve them. Bring a camera to document the activities you will do and the places you will visit. If something share-worthy comes your way, capture it and let your friends online see it. 


Field trips are fun not only because they allow you to visit new places, but also because they give you new experiences. Keep the tips above in mind so you can make the most of your excursions.
