Long-haul flights can be exhausting, stressful, grueling and in other words –a real pain in the rear but if you have travel survival kits with you then it’s a whole new ballgame!
Travel Survival Kits For A More Comfortable Flight
A 14-hour flight can turn into a 14-hour long nightmare if you are not prepared and does not have the necessary things to help you get through a long distance travel. So combat and prevent an agonizing experience, it’s time to pack the right travel survival kits for a long-haul flight. Check out the list of items below and consider bringing them for your next trip so you can avoid a burdensome flight.
When you are stuck on a plane for hours, you want to be comfortable as much as you can. You need to feel relaxed throughout the whole flight not just with your seat but also with your clothing. Bring slip-on shoes so your feet won’t swell during the trip. When it gets cold inside the airplane, wear wool socks to warm your feet. Also, don’t forget to bring eye mask and earplugs to help you sleep faster and for a longer untroubled sleep. You may also bring a neck pillow to prevent your neck from flopping during your travel.
Food And Water
You may wonder why you feel thirsty during flights. It is because plane cabins are dry places and the air contains a small amount of humidity so you need to stay hydrated all the time. Bring an empty plastic bottle and you can ask the attendant to fill it up. You also need to pack your own food or snacks. Yeah, we know there’s food during a long-haul flight but it may not be when we want it or the food may not be agreeable with our taste buds. So while we’re waiting for the rattling sound of the food trolley, pack some energy bars, trail mix, fruits and some nuts.
During a long-haul flight, there’s a high possibility boredom will sink in and you need to find ways to entertain yourself. Nowadays, most airlines are improving their entertainment systems but there are still those who are outdated so you have to settle for what they have to offer. Bring some books or a Kindle filled with books you always wanted to read. You may also bring a tablet loaded with games or movies to keep you occupied throughout the trip.
When you reach your destination without suffering the burden of a stiffed neck, hunger, and boredom, now is the time to freshen up and look good. After a long flight, you may feel disgusting so you may want to hit the toilet and wash your face, brush your teeth or gargle with mouthwash, comb your hair, and apply deodorant so you can be a brand new you before the plane lands.
