If you are just like me, being just still is not your cup of tea. That is, especially if you love adrenaline rushes, adventures and travel. But there are down sides of it, topping the list is managing to stick to your chair, stay put in long hours of plane flight that just feels like gazillion years.
When getting into your destination just makes you feel more than excited than the ride itself, let Maiden Voyage share you some bright ideas…
Book at a Good Airline
Perks depend from one airline to another. If you’re a frequent traveller, you would realize which ones suit your taste and needs. For me personally, I prefer flying with Cathay Pacific — TVs, blankets and pillows. But there are other good airlines too like Singapore Airlines and Emirates Airlines to name a few.
Break it into two
Why not instead of one long and dragging flight, book flight with a connecting one. Apart from breaking the hours of just sitting down, you can also explore interesting airports and key destinations. I find Singapore and Kuala Lumpur as nice connecting flight destination.
Of course, you expected that to be part of the list. Nothing to do on the plane? Then sleep! Some travellers even make sure their flight is at night time so they wouldn’t have sleeping problems during the long trip, or if travelling to a totally different time zone, find a flight that will best avoid jet lag, and have a sound sleep on the plane. Bring a travel pillow to have an even comfortable sleep.
Make Entertainment Handy
Thanks to smartphones and tablets it can now be easier for us travellers to do something worthwhile anywhere — even on a plane! As for me, being a movie and book buff, I make sure I have a downloaded movie on my iPad or brought along a good book, just so I don’t end up staring (and getting envious) at what the other passengers are busy with.
