    This is a wonderfully written post. I have actually never, ever been on a plane. I have been debating saving up for Australia as my first adventure, some people have said going on a long haul for your first ever trip is a great idea because you know nothing will ever be as bad.. Others have told me that it’s terrible because if I hate it there’s not a lot I can do haha! xx

      Awww thank you! Oh no way? Australia sounds amazing!! It’s very much 6 one and half a dozen of the other. But there’s no secrets about planes, and if you feel you’ll be okay then go for it, because at the end of it there’s a pretty amazing adventure at the end! xx

    Aw bless you! 13 hours and that’s your first long haul?! Gosh that’s such a horrible way to start, you’re a strong person if you still wanna travel after that, I commend you! Lovely tips though, I fly long haul a few times a year but your advice still is so helpful! You know a lot for someone who’s only done it once…but I guess you got thrown into the deep end with it so of course you know what to do!

    Thanks for such a helpful post! 🙂 xx

      That was my first flight altogether aha! Thank you very much! Ahh no way, yeah I did do a lot of research before as I was plunging myself straight to the deepend, but luckily what I tested seemed to work well! Thanks for reading!! xx

    Hey! I love the idea of this post! I don’t think I’ve ever read anything quite like this before. I’ll definitely be taking on board some of your tips next time I fly, I hate flying so much!

    Oh gosh, this brings me flash backs to my Florida flights when I was fourteen! Horrible. I advocate getting up and stretching as it’s good for your health. That and packing snacks as it’s so much cheaper than paying for inflight snacks!

      Oh no really? I can imagine at 14 that’d probably be tough! It is really good for you, definitely something that came very apparent to me! I know right! x

    If you can find a copy of the game Dobble it’s great for flights, assuming your sitting with a group of friends. I recently flew to Peru and the people I was with had a blast playing it.
