You know me, I love to travel, especially long journeys. There’s something about getting comfortable while travelling the world, watching good movies and just feeling like a boss!

How to Prepare for a Long Flight

I try to get as much sleep the night before I go so I can sleep on the plane and wake up at my destination. If you need to drive for five hours first, get a good night’s sleep and take some Tylenol pm or something else to make you lethargic.

Yes, now it’s all radio/music and movies, but sometimes you want your own little playlist on the go. If I can’t sleep, which happens to me, I like to get lost in a good story, but something light and engaging. I’ve always found a good activity book or even sci-fi to be useful for that.

If it’s cold on the plane, bring a big, soft sweater to use as a blanket or cushion. I prefer to play computer games, so I always carry one of the new handheld games with me. If I’m not in the mood to learn, I can play a few games to keep myself engaged, which is the key.
