Whenever I go on a long haul flight, like a connection from Dallas to London or Copenhagen to Bangkok, I always have a routine I follow. This involves a couple of things I buy beforehand, things I do or definitely do NOT do and rituals to do once I’m in the air. This routine helps me survive 10+ hour long flights, or any other flight for that matter, so that I’m ready to see my destination as soon as I land instead of just crashing in my hotel room. These are my best tips to survive a long haul flight.
I have known since I was a little girl that I wanted to take a year off after I graduated the danish “high school”. Normally people are about 18-20 years old when they graduate depending on what they did after the mandatory first ten years of school. Some people take an eleventh year of that school before stepping into the bigger classes and some people – like me – went on exchange in another country. And then there are the people who decide that high school is not for them and go straight to the thing that they want to study. I went to Texas for a year and then I started the danish kind of high school which takes three years. That means that I just graduated 2 weeks ago! But that also means that I have to start deciding on what I want to do in my year off. I know that I have to work to earn money. And I know that I want to travel. A lot. But what are my options for traveling? There are sooo many things you can do nowadays which makes it hard to keep track of all of the possibilities. Therefore I started brainstorming. And this is what I came up with.
