Unfortunately, before you reach your destination, you are going to have to make it through a lengthy flight – with proper planning, your flight can be a lot more enjoyable.
Your flight may be long, but who’s to say that you can’t be comfortable? Check for a great travel pillow that will save your neck from potentially spasming and knotting up. The Evolution Microbead could be your best friend on a lengthy trip. It provides added support and cushions your neck in the right places. The best part is, it has 360° lateral head stabilization supports, it won’t push your head forward and features a media pouch to hold your phone/MP3 player.
Also be kind to your heiny, and consider getting a travel cushion for that added comfort. Magellan’s GSeat Light Seat Cushion would be a great choice. It is made of lightweight memory foam that promotes enhanced circulation and comfort. It folds in half so it is very portable.If you are going to send the pampering into overdrive why not check for an inflatable foot rest to add some manufactured comfort to your tootsies? The Go Travel Inflatable Travel Foot Rest is a fantastic option. All you have to do is manually blow it up which is quite effortless and your feet will soon feel like they are perched on a cloud. It reduces in-flight swelling and stress, improves blood circulation and it can be used as back support or a head pillow.
A flight can get a bit boring and being stuck on a plane for so long can be frustrating. Unfortunately it is not permissible to take a circus performing midget with you to keep you entertained (just kidding people, as long as you have a permit it’s fine. OK seriously just joking). Your best bet would be to take a tablet with you. Our first choice of tablets would be the new iPad Mini, which we recently reviewed. Beat the boredom by watching your favourite movies and TV shows on it (even listen to your favourite tunes) and it has a 10 hour battery life, so that’s enough juice for entertainment’s sake. It is slim and very lightweight so it will easily fit into your carry-on luggage.
Be courteous of other passengers, they don’t have to listen to your music or what you are watching so make use of earphones. Rather go with earphones than headphones because of their compact nature (space saving is the name of the game). You may as well get a pair of bad-ass earphones/earbuds. On this note, the Beats by Dr Dre Urbeats spring to mind. These earphones produce crystal clear sound. They look funky and feature a solid metal housing so you don’t have to worry about it getting damaged easily.
Gamers don’t have to worry about withdrawal symptoms from lack of button-bashing. There are numerous portable game consoles that you can take on your trip. The PSP go system has a 16 GB hard drive. Apart from having an extensive range of some pretty rad games, it also can be used to watch to watch your favourite movies and series.After a while the pressure build up (due to high altitudes) in your ears can become very uncomfortable. Earplugs are a quick and efficient fix. Cirrus EarPlanes Ear Plugs for Flying are super safe and can be used by almost anybody and even infants as young as one year. They work by regulating the air that travels into and out of the outer ear. They are also pretty good for driving at high altitudes.It is no secret that sleeping on a plane can be tricky and some people need every bit of help they can muster. A sleeping mask can be very useful in this regard. The Dream Essentials Sweet Dreams Contoured Sleep Mask will give you a quick exit to lala land. It is made out of moulded soft foam and covered by a polyester interlocked fabric. The mask removes almost all light and will promote a restful sleep without placing any pressure on the eye area. It is also accompanied with soft foam ear plugs, moulded with super low-pressure foam to shut out any unwanted noise.It is going to be a long flight so make the effort to go prepared. Proper preparation will make the time spent on the flight seem a lot shorter and before you know it will be time to party like it’s 1979.
