Many people are afraid to fly on planes and this is often connected with the stress that air travel causes — it always seems we’ve forgotten to take something important, that we are afraid to be late, and that we pray for a smooth landing from the moment we get on the plane. In order to avoid unnecessary worries, it’s better to prepare for your flight a bit differently.
We like to travel and collect tried and true tips and ideas that help even the most experienced tourists get through their flight with the maximum amount of comfort.
20. Tissues can replace a bottle of perfume on a short trip, while parchment paper will can prevent wrinkles.
It’s quite simple: take a usual tissue, spray it with perfume and put it close to the collar of your clothing item, then fold it in a usual manner. The longer the tissue stays with the fabric, the better it will transfer the smell of the perfume.
It’s better to use baking parchment for easy-to-crease items — it is denser and prevents the appearance of unwanted folds on clothes.
19. Vacuum cleaner and plastic bags will help reduce the volume of things.
Rolled up clothing items can be placed to plastic bags and zipped almost fully, leaving a small hole. With the help of a vacuum cleaner, the air should get sucked out through this hole, after which the bag should be zipped fully. If you have a lot of things to carry, it’s better to use special vacuum bags.
This type of packaging will help you organize things by category and protect your clothes if something leaks into your suitcase.
18. Extra muscle exercises will help you get rid of jet lag.
If you run a couple of miles or dedicate an hour to fitness training before a trip, going to sleep after your flight will be easier and faster, due to the tiredness of your muscles. It will help your body to adjust to a different time zone quicker.
