    Before you go to your destination, do some research on where you are heading. Know the history of it. If you do, that alone can make the vacation more interesting. You can also find shopping malls or good restaurants or fun places if you search online. Make sure to tell your parents of all the places you can go if they don't already know. It would be good to also print the information off and bring it with you on your trip.

    Don't eat too much. If you find yourself going out to restaurants a lot, this may be difficult. You can pace yourself though. If you go out everyday, then every other day order a main meal and that's it. The days that you don't have to order a main meal, order a large salad to start and then have desert after. Try not to snack a lot. Because you are bored you may find yourself eating more. Don't start that habit.
