Five things you must carry on your flight

Five things you must carry on your flight

Whether you are an intrepid jet-setter who cherishes those millions of butterflies in the stomach that comes with flying or the panicky tech-atheist who would probably think that the aeroplane is missing phalanges; doesn’t matter!

The following five things you must carry to make your flying time easier and shall be on top your packing list.

 The Snack Attack

 Well after time; if there is something that is unstoppable and uncontrollable then that would be cravings and hunger! These hunger games know no bounds of time or place. It just comes and leaves you unsettling, devoid and empty. And it is even worse when this happens in the middle of nowhere, on a flight! Of course, you could resort to the expensive, insipid airline food that they had affectionately packed hours ago but that won’t make for the flying experience that you were promised, will it? So to avoid all that keeping a handy little snack or maybe not so little is always advisable. It will be an answer to your sudden, unlikely cravings and would help in any sort emergency hunger crisis like flight delays and baggage claim issues if any. After all, you don’t want to be jet lagged and hungry at the same time right! If you don’t use it in flight, you would always have a little extra something to munch on later.

 Warm Extra Something

 Now I know you have restrictions and all on hand luggage and you probably still have to stuff the souvenirs you bought from the airport the last minute; but carrying a shawl, scarf, sweater, jacket or anything like that while boarding will always be in your favour. Because it is most unlikely that your body will completely adapt thermally while on the plane. And you don’t wish to be shivering while you are the only one wide awake thinking about how comfy you would have been if you would have got that favourite sweatshirt of yours. So this little piece of cloth that you packed just because mom said so will cosy you up a little and lead your way to that desired state of repose, and help you get some good sleep. Ultimately you use your precious time in napping and not thinking of ways to kill time.

Alas! Boredom Kills

Just as smoking kills; boredom kills too especially when you are travelling all alone. Suddenly that long history class in college starts seeming attractive while you are just waiting and waiting. Waiting is quite an integral part of travelling by flight; waiting for customs clearance, waiting for boarding, waiting for baggage claims and so on. All this waiting and no entertainment make us dull very dull. So to safeguard yourself mentally carry some time killing stuff that will keep you entertained. Be it an iPod with a couple of playlists or some Friends episodes in phone or at least a book you just saw at the airport bookstore grab it before it is too late. That is going to be your saviour when you start thinking that your only chance to escape this boring flight is to jump off. But don’t be all tech-nerdy about it and miss out on the alluring views from above.

 Manage your Medicines

Well, this one goes beyond flights. Always, always carry your necessary medicines everywhere. Keep it handy; keep it safe but don’t miss them. With all the big stuff to pack, you tend to forget the little important ones, so the first thing to do is pack medicines. If you are likely to incur altitude or motion sickness then carry medication that will get you through the flight to avoid it altogether for you don’t want to be that one passenger whom the rest of the people would blame for their discomfort. Any other medical aid that makes up for your comforts such as ointment or Aspirin for a headache and nausea; inhaler and tissues if you are suffering from cold, etc. are a must. Now I am not implying for you to look like a pharmacist though and the flights are probably having all the essential medication these days, but as they say, precaution is better than care. And you don’t want to start your travel with a bad flight experience, do you!

Freshening up essentials

Well, this is really necessary for those long; really long international flights, when you are stuck in one place for at least a day. All the tiredness starts appearing on your face from your sore muscles, and all you want to do is find a horizontal surface preferably a bed and sleep, but that is not possible as you still have to deal with customs and checkpoints. So whatever it is that you need to get your spirits high; be it fresh wipes tissues, mouth freshener, deodorant, perfume or even a set of extra clothes don’t hesitate to carry it. It will only better help you combat the jet lag and not just freshen up your body but also re-energise your mind when you feel neat and clean.

 Quick Tips-

       Eat chewing gum to stay away from the long-lasting ear blocks happening due to air pressure.

       Tie a small distinctive coloured ribbon to your baggage that will make identifying it easier.

       Carry a set of a notepad and pen while travelling abroad as you would have to fill out some forms.

       Wear the most comfortable set of clothes during international flights for the so-called ‘Airport look’ is just a thing for celebrities and there is nothing more trendy than being comfortable.

Rising Trends of Mini Stays and Short Vacations

Rising Trends of Mini Stays and Short Vacations

There is a significant shift in how people carry out their vacation plans – shorter trips are being preferred instead of longer ones. On an average, people used to take out 10 days from their busy routine and spend their days vacationing all at once.

 

The trend has seemingly change as people now prefer a 2 to 5-day break and opt to travel shorter distances. That is because shorter tips help them get cheap flights, budget stays, and the dates usually linger around the weekend. Here are some of the reasons why short vacations have become so popular:

 

1.   Cost

The foremost thing is definitely the cost because that is what can help you shape your travel plan. We always want to find ways to save on cost, and the longer trips will definitely need more money than the shorter ones. Many people cancel their plans or save up for a long time to have their dream vacation. However, people now usually want diversity and so they break their travel plans to have more and at a better cost.

Short trips are affordable and you can find more ways to save on each expense. You can look out for cheap flights, alternative transport options, affordable stays, eat local delights, and more.

Most weekend getaways have packages that help you save a little more on cost. You might have to book your hotels way ahead because getting cheap accommodations within a short span of time is usually tough. However, there are also accommodation providers who can give you discounts for 3-5 nights of your stay.

Things to note:

       You must look out for discounts and deals

       If you go out in a group, you should follow the group rates and plan accordingly. This saves money for all.

       Try to get promo codes or follow travel contests that can help you get provisions for a trip

 

2.   Time

Time definitely plays an important role and that’s not just in one way. You need to get your holidays approved, plan ahead to get good deals, know the climatic condition of the place you want to visit at that time, and more.

Full-time employees mostly depend on weekends and holidays that luckily are adjacent to the weekends for planning a trip. It is usually tough to take out long vacations for young professionals, so getaways are ideal for them. The average amount of holidays in a year is around 16 days. It could be lesser depending on the country you are from, and that’s why vacations are planned during festivals.

You need to give a lot of time and effort to plan your trip. As per research, travelers go through an average amount of 38 websites to book their accommodations, get cheap flights, and activities. Planning is equally important for a mini stay just as we will plan for our dream holiday. When we spend money, we want to utilize it to the fullest. It is better to plan ahead and from the comfort of your home, even if shorter trips don’t need much to plan for.

Things to note:

       You need to have an estimate of what you want to do to plan your trip out. This will let you save time and have a neat itinerary ready.

       Research online and see what all you have access to so that you can make prior bookings and not miss out or waste more money when you get there. Just as you will first look for cheap flights and confirm you’re traveling, you should also find activities and events to be a part of.

       Try out offline options that give you detailed and reliable information about things that you can do at your stay. The local agents can help you ease out your plans, which is sometimes difficult to expect from virtual assistants.

 

3.   Diversity

If you plan a big vacation once a year and spend a lot of money to just tour through one specific location, you could have had more within than. According to time and number of leaves, it is always easier to plan out weekend getaways and even get cheap flights for those, rather than booking cheap flights for a trip, six months ahead of time.

We all have our dream destination, but there is so much more in the world than just one place you want to go to. People who wish to see diversity within a specific state or a country can surely plan out a big holiday, but the amount of money that it’ll require will be huge.

When we travel, we tend to go in groups, and that means everyone has their own choices. If someone wants to be by the seas, someone else might like to stay at the foot of a mountain. You can only fulfill everyone’s demand when you all decide to take short trips. This lets one person have his way in one trip, while the next is booked for the other.

You could have been disappointed to not see one place in two different climates, but with mini vacations, you will always like to come over to a place you had once visited. Mini vacations never let you have the most of one place, and that’s why most people like coming back and over and over again.

Things to note:

       When you plan a vacation, mark out some of the things to do and some of the places to must see. This not only helps you pack your bags but also tells you what to expect and what not to.

       You need to attend to seasonal trends and plan. For instance, if you are from a warmer location, you might want to travel to a place when it’s cold.

       Be open to other’s decisions and plans to make a trip happy and satisfying for everyone in concern.

 

4.    Planning

There is a major difference between planning for a short and a long trip. When you cut down on days, you don’t just cut down on money, but you also cut down on all the other possible things. You have a lighter luggage to carry, you have lesser places to eat, you have lesser time to make everything work out and that in turn might make you return to the place again.

When you plan for a short trip, you tend to take it easy and things seem to get organized within a short span of time. You can search and book cheap flights within 10 minutes, and then move onto accommodations. Most apps and websites let you have all under one roof, and they tend to give you more ideas about what to do and when you travel.

Things to note:

       Planning ahead of time lets you make the most of your mini stay. You don't have to work things out on your way.

       It is not tough to plan a short trip if you follow a list. Write down or note down the basic requirements like having a holiday approved, getting cheap flights booked, choosing the right stay, knowing what to see and do.

 

It is time to pack your bags and have your boss let you go. If you don’t get a holiday, you can always rely on the weekends and take a leave. Make sure to look out for discounts and deals for cheap flights and stays.

 

Things To Remember When Boarding The Flight During Pregnancy

Things To Remember When Boarding The Flight During Pregnancy.

 Travelling while expecting a child can be a challenge to many. Ahead are a few tips and things to remember when boarding the aeroplane for pregnant flyers.

Pregnancy is a period which has a number of emotions involved at the same time. There is excitement since a new family member is awaited, there is anxiety if the child is receiving the proper nutrients from the mother’s body, there is nervousness of childbirth and also the anticipation of immense pain to speak of a few. Utmost care is given to the expecting mother and the child in her womb to ensure a healthy family life ahead without any complications or difficulties. Life goes on a usual during pregnancy, in the sense that the mother travels, goes to the word, exercises as recommended and also doesn’t ignore the household chores. A woman is an all-rounder, and this creator of life does wonders. However, one must be cautious while travelling by flights due to changes in air pressure, elevation, temperature and similar other aspects.

Ahead are a few tips to help you travel better and that you must remember while boarding the flight.

Second Trimester:

Well, that’s exactly when you must consider getting on an aircraft while flying. By this time, the morning sickness from the first trimester of 9 months has already reduced considerably, and the weariness of the third hasn’t started showing any signs yet. It is recommended that one mustn’t embark on a journey after 36 to 38 weeks of pregnancy. The best is to ask your doctor before making a move because he knows best since that’s his field of expertise. No point taking a chance and risking the baby’s life. It is also suggested that it is wise to already keep information of your airline’s policies for pregnant passengers, in order to avoid last minute harassment and chaos which can stress the mother and that is not okay either.

 

In The Country:

To explain it in one line, it is better to choose domestic destinations as travelling international may be more tiring and a long journey is a big no-no. No one can predict what may happen while once in the air. Proximity to home ensures less distance from relatives who can rush anytime as needed and less contamination or total change in the eating habits and lifestyle. The body too requires time to adapt to its surroundings, and it is uncertain if the delicate child has such an immune system. High altitudes must be avoided while beaches are appreciated for their soothing effects.

 

Prenatal Record:

Carrying them is no harm. Just like a little infant constantly needs care and affection, similar is the expecting mother’s condition who can need medical help at any time of the day or night. Keeping records handy ensure that they can be used as a reference by any local doctor too and not just the one who is handling the case. Keeping one’s health insurance in the bag is also spoken highly of. These documents are as essential as the passport and should not be treated lightly at any cost.

 

Do Not Pick Heavy Objects:

Do not rush to carry your luggage on your own just because you feel you can do all that a man is capable of doing or simply because you do not want others to work for you. It turns out; it’s okay sometimes to be the spoilt queen and not work. Let others help you while carrying the heavy bags and suitcases. Do not bend too much as it could result in an injury to the child which may also lead to a life-long regret on your part. Try avoiding those screeners since their rays have the potential on high long-term damage. Instead, request for a pat-down security check. Taking help is okay.

 Hydration And Snacks:

These are essential for the effective and efficient functioning of even those who are not pregnant. The re-circulated air in the plane can cause dryness and lack of moisture. Drinking ample water is very important to remain hydrated which also avoids a feeling of nausea, dizziness and complete blackout. Eight to twelve glasses of water must be consumed each day. Regular munching on dry snacks is equally significant. While salted products are to be avoided as they may cause retention of fluids and consequent swelling. Raisins, carrots, un-cut fruits and granola bars are endorsed.

 

Space:

Blood circulation is essential. Taking an aisle seat allows easy access to the washroom as well as provides space for walking up and down at frequent intervals, lest there is a high chance of blood clots and deep vein thrombosis which can have severe effects. Putting on warm socks is also a suggestion to keep the blood concentration proper for smooth flow without any obstruction. Being restful is the key. Do not shy away from stretching the legs and arms regularly. Others will either judge or not care, but that shouldn’t matter to you since your body and child must be your number one priority. Let the world assume what they want to.

 

Avoid The Vent:

 As per the rules, you will not be allowed to have a seat by the emergency exit. But also avoid a place which is directly under a vent that blows direct air. Expecting mothers are more prone to catch a cold than the rest. Thus, one should not be exposed to potential viruses. It is also proposed that a hand sanitizer should always be kept in the handbag.

 

“Prevention is better than cure” is one motto that every family member of the pregnant lady as well she and the others around her must live by. A small mistake could lead to eternal suffering for some other being. These points aim to answer a few frequently asked questions that arise in the mind while boarding the flight during pregnancy. This is a beautiful experience which must be cherished and enjoyed since not everyone is blessed to give birth to a child and rear it up. Travelling can be stressful at times and especially when one is about to have a child and is going through immense physical along with social changes.

Rest back, take a trip, be careful and do let us know how helpful this was.
