Long Haul Flights

So I'm not a huge fan of flying at all but with my job that is something that I do a lot of! Once you've been on one flight you kind of learn the ins and outs pretty quickly, you realise what you should have packed and stuff you packed but didn't really need and if your like me and pack for every scenario thats normally quite a lot!

My first long haul flight was around 11 hours before that I had done a few smaller flights normally no longer than 4 hours and so this was just the same but just a hell of a lot longer!

What do I wear? 

So this is something that everyone finds different but personally I like to wear loose clothing so that I'm comfortable during the flight and don't feel restricted in anyway. I normally opt for leggings and a comfy jumper and underneath a loose fitting t shirt in case I get too hot.

What to pack. 

There are always going to be the same essentials that I take every flight and with travelling in general. Here is my carry on luggage list:

  • Good book to read (everyone has their own preferences and mine would be a good crime book that I can really get stuck into and make the time go that little bit quicker!) 

  • Travel pillow - I can sleep pretty much anywhere but I love to sleep in comfort, I got my pillow from TK Max, its memory foam and the best travel pillow I've ever used! 

  • Snacks - this is a must!! You never know when hunger is going to strike and you need a little something to keep you going. Snacks also covers sweets and gum for taking off and landing! 

  • Scarf - I have one of those big scarfes that open out into the big blanket type and these are my first choice to take! Especially since flights can get quite cold with the air conditioning on all the time. 

  • Throat sweets - speaking of air conditioning I always take some throat sweets and paracetamol as I get such a dry throat from the recycled air! 

  • Computer - Either a computer, phone, Ipod anything with the latest films and music on to keep you occupied! With this Headphones are another must have! 

Tips whilst on the plane. 

I am one of those people that reads multiple blogs, magazine articles about what to do on flights before I go just to make sure I feel prepared and have some sort of plan to keep myself occupied! 

Drink plenty, now I am really bad at this on a day to day basis but on a flight it is so important as the air is very dry and can dehydrate you very quickly. Another top tip is to keep mobile, keep walking around every so often even doing little exercises in your seat can stop you from going stiff and getting the dreaded dead leg after the long flight! 

Take some bits so that you can freshen up, take 5 to 10 minutes to yourself to make yourself feel good again, I always take a mini kit filled with a toothbrush, wipes and just other bits and pieces that will make you feel fresh.... flights can make you feel extremely yucky! 

So there are just a few of my top tips! I'd love if you could share your's in the comments as I'm constantly searching for new things to try!
