(1) Good Seating
When it comes to good seating. You cannot leave it to chance. When booking your flights see if there is a way to select your seats beforehand. The exit aisle on the plane usually has more space. On the day of your flight don’t be shy to ask at the check-in if exit aisle seats are free. Also another hack is that if there are 3 or 5 seats in a row that are free, you pretty much have a bed.
To avoid getting cramp while on your flight it is important to take a stroll down the aisle in order to get blood flowing through your body. You can do other light exercises such as knee ups and shoulder rolls to loosen your body up. You can do these light exercises in between films and game sessions to create a bit of routine.
Remember to preload your tablet or smartphone with some movies or TV shows to watch. Create a flight playlist and download a few games that you know you can play for hours. Remember to ask the airline if they will have WiFi or USB outlets on the plane. It is also important to have noise cancelling headphones to get you in the zone and fully relaxed for your flight. Also, remember to carry a high capacity charging battery for your devices.
(4) Pack smart
When everything important is in your backpack you will sleep so much better on the plane knowing all your stuff is with you.
So much time is wasted waiting to collect your luggage from the carousel. When you have your backpack with you it’s nice to be able to get off the plane and head out the airport and begin enjoying your trip.
(5) Catch up on stuff
A long flight is the perfect opportunity to finish editing those images, organise your photos and finish that blog entry you never had the time to get round to. It’s also a great time to think of all of the things you aim to do and the places you want to see once you get to your destination.

USA - New York
There is so much happening in the Big Apple during the month of November. The atmosphere is buzzing as the city is approaching Christmas and is in Thanksgiving mode. One of the major highlights of the month is The Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It takes place on the 24th November. It is a day event that showcases cultural displays, giant inflatable balloons and a wide variety of street performances. Every year it gets bigger. It is in its 90th year so we expect that this event will surely have many extravagant surprises.
