The holiday season and festive break is finally here! Most of us are planning on spending our well-deserved days off burning on the beach, braaing our hearts out, and catching up on all the Netflix shows we’ve missed out on. There are still going to be times where we just want to lie down on the couch with our phones in our hands, while we browse aimlessly through easy-to-digest information.
For those times, we’ve compiled a list of amazing websites for you to check out – real boredom beaters that will keep you entertained for hours, and will also teach you a thing or two!
Free workouts for your new summer body
This one is for all of the ‘’new year, new me’’ peeps that love to join the gym and acquire their summer bodies on the 1st of every year! On MuscleWiki, you’ll find a long list of amazing workouts you can do at the gym or from the comfort of your own home. They have a really cool function that allows you to pinpoint the muscles you want to focus on, as well as a calorie calculator that will help you control your macro-nutrients – which is really important because summer bodies aren’t just made in the gym, they are also made in the kitchen!
A trip down memory lane you won’t soon forget
Nostalgia can be a powerful tool to recall some amazing memories from your childhood. If you’re looking for a blast from the past, this site is a must-visit! On My90sTv.com you will be able to watch some of your favourite movies, shows, soaps, and cartoons from the era! Not only this but if you were born in a different era, say the 60s,70s, 80s or 2000s – you’re in luck because they have amazing shows from those eras too. Just select what genre you want, click the power button, and enjoy.
Travel around your favourite cities for free
If you are in the mood to go for a drive around your favourite city, while listening to some local tunes of the region, DriveAndListen is the site for you. In 2021/2022, you don’t need to spend a fortune flying to Rome, Amsterdam, Tokyo, New York, or even London – you can simply visit this website and travel around the bustling streets of your favourite cities virtually, for free. This one is a real time-burner!
Your favourite retro games are a click away
Sega, Nintendo, Atari and Gameboy are all legacy gaming systems that got us through our childhoods with masterpieces like The Legend of Zelda, Oddworld – Abe’s Exoddus, Spyro the Dragon and Super Smash Bros.
You most likely have great recollections of these games, but if you want to locate some of the best vintage games of all time, you should journey back in gaming history to the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Meridian 59 and Ultima are two excellent old game titles.
PlayRetroGames.com allows you to hop into a time capsule and transports you back to a time when gaming was, albeit a little simpler, but so much more enjoyable.
Traverse the universe
This one is for all the space buffs and Sci-Fi fanatics out there – 100,000 stars is a website that allows you to really get a sense of how grand the universe truly is. Travel to stars like Gliese 570 and Alpha Centuri, or alternatively, take a tour of our Milkyway galaxy. Start at home and travel through the vast galaxy – far past where the naked eye can see!
We hope that these boredom-beating websites provide you with hours of mindless entertainment! We’ve added a few of them to our browser’s favourites list – one we can’t wait to really get stuck into is PlayRetroGames.com.
From our team to your family, we hope you have a merry festive season and all the luck in the world for the New Year ahead.
