I’m flying home tomorrow… again! Then to Sicily on Sunday. Of course I am thrilled about both, just less so about the plane trips. Air Travel is entirely exhausting.
Here are three tips that make it easy (er):
1. Wear the softest, most comfortable clothes you own.
What I usually wear on plane journeys are actually intended for sleeping in, but they pass as acceptable to wear in public (in my opinion at least…). Oysho seem to nail that ‘looks like clothes but feels like pyjamas’ thing I’m crazy about.
Just before my flight home last Christmas, Lucy gave me a gift of these slipper socks from Oysho (aren’t they cute?). They are twice as warm as regular socks, which is important since planes always tend to be freezing.
2. Try to get some sleep.
Even if it’s a daytime flight, sleeping makes the journey seem much shorter and more bearable.
Let ear plugs deal with the noise. If you’re already thinking about a soft blanket, I’m right there with you. I just use a scarf from Zara- unfolded it’s huuuuge. Build a jersey cocoon around yourself and hey presto, cozy-town central. Population: one.
3. Pack a picnic.
We’ve talked about this before. Honestly, this is the best advice of all. This time I’m making a cous-cous salad and packing Bateel caramelised-pecan dates (my favourite) as a little treat.
I’m not even going to tell you to drink lots of water. Everyone says that. (They say it because it’s true).
