3 Tips For Surviving Long International Flights

Finding comfort in the friendly skies


The summer is almost here and finally, that big trip you have been planning all year is going to happen.

You are embarking on an international trip around the world that will consist of a lengthy flight. Three things that can really help you make the best of a long flight is a book, a pillow, and headphones.

Let’s start with a really good book. If you are on a long plane ride, escape your surroundings by transporting yourself to a different world. You can do so by bringing along a great book or several great books pre-loaded on your Kindle or the eReader of your choice.

Once you find a great book, get right into it and time will fly. You will mentally be able to enjoy a great story that will make the flight a lot better. Stop by the bookstore or the library before your flight, or you will regret it.

If you are flying at night, don’t forget your favorite pillow. There’s nothing better than a great nap, and if you have a pillow, you can nap away on a long flight.

This will allow you to wake up and feel fresh once you get to your long awaited destination. Don’t be afraid to count sheep and fall asleep on a long flight, your body and mind will thank you for it.

Bring headphones so you can listen to your favorite music or watch something on your mobile device. You can zone out the crying baby or the loud person constantly coughing with your selection of music tunes.

Just like a book, this can transport you to another world of relaxation. Another thing to note is the plane can be loud as well.

The loud sounds of the engines or sometimes the turbulence can be annoying. Having headphones, or some really great noise canceling headphones with some dope music or even an audio book will make the ride a bit more manageable and enjoyable.

Without a doubt, a good book, comfortable pillow, and headphones will make a long flight a lot more enjoyable.
