Longer journeys can be quite boring, especially if you have a long way ahead and are travelling alone. Be it via a flight or via train, longer journeys often need reinforcements in the form a book or an active internet connection or a beautiful scenery perhaps to keep yourself engaged and prevent yourself from dying of boredom (not literally, though). But more often than not, it is not possible even to have even one of them at hand. Maybe you have little space left to carry a book or the internet connect on way is spotty (which it usually is) or maybe you are sitting at spot where the grand view is more of a scarcity, either way, sometimes it’s just not possible to have enough means at your disposal to keep yourself entertained.
For moments such as these, there is Netflix. The streaming platform not only has a wide array of movies, TV shows and documentaries, but it also enables users to download them on their devices within the app so that they can watch them later when they are in an area with a spotty internet connection.
