10 Things You Need to Survive a Long Flight
We all know how stressful traveling can be. As you start your journey to your long awaited destination, the travel process can sometimes be grueling and downright uncomfortable.
That is why we've compiled together 10 essential things you need to survive a long flight. Start your vacation the minute you get on the plane by preparing ahead of time and packing these travel must-haves.
#1. Eye Mask & Sound-Blocking Ear Plugs
Drown out unwanted light and noise with a good eye mask and ear plug set.
#2. Reusable Water Bottle
Make sure to stay hydrated during a long flight. It's easy to get dehydrated when traveling so bringing a reusable water bottle assures you drink the water you need.
#3. Travel Scarf
Travel comfortably (and fashionably!) with a scarf that can double up as a blanket.
#4. Hand Sanitizer and Wipes
Stay healthy and clean with easy-to-grab hand sanitizer and wipes. Do you know where the germiest place on an airplane is? (Hint: It's not the bathroom!)
#5. A Page-Turning Book
Scroll through Amazon's Best-Seller List or if you have Amazon Prime, take advantage of their Prime Reading Service for free unlimited reading. Download your favorite reads to your Kindle or phone device for extra-light packing!
#6. Fuzzy Socks
Bring your aloe socks on the airplane for an ultra-cozy flight, or find soothing relaxation at your destination after a long day of travel.
#7. Neck Pillow
Most of us know to bring a neck pillow on our flight, but the key is being able to choose the right one. Try different styles and designs before traveling to assure you get the customized neck-support you need.
#8. Snacks & Munchies
Bring healthy alternatives to the sodium-filled airplane food.
#9. Travel Packing Cubes
Find a Travel Packing Set that not only has organizational cubes for your clothes and luggage but an assortment of zipper pouches for your carry-on bag. Being able to easily access the items you need eliminates unnecessary anxiety and stress.
Bring a toothbrush, toothpaste, hand lotion, and face wipes. Flights get delayed and even if they don't, being able to freshen up can make the world of a difference.
