Stuck on a long trip on a bus or a train or even a plane? Strike a conversation with your seatmate! You might want to check their mood first, though. You don’t want to come off as someone annoying or worse, creepy. Check if they’re up for a chat with some simple starters like asking how they find the weather (cliche, but, hey, it works!) or where they’re from and what they’re looking forward to doing once you reach your destination.
