Travel Tips for International Flights

Long-haul flights are a test of endurance. It’s not about enjoying yourself – it’s about surviving. Her are our best travel tips for getting through an international flight.

* Exercise the day of your flight. It’ll tire you out and help you sleep on the plane.

* Shower before you leave. You’ll be able to go shoeless on the plane without offending your neighbors.

* Wear slip-on shoes, wool socks, a hoodie (or something more refined but still comfy).

* Pack an eye mask and ear plugs.

* Don’t forget about entertainment – load it up in advance. Don’t rely on airplane wifi.

* Bring a pen. You’ll need it for customs forms.

* Keep toiletries in reach on your flight. You’ll be able to freshen up in the airplane bathroom. How to pack toiletries: https://bit.ly/1QXvd4f

* Bring an empty water bottle and get it filled up. Plane cabins are dry, so make sure you stay hydrated.

* Bring your own food. DIY airplane snacks: https://bit.ly/21JEQsp

About Tortuga Backpacks:

We make gear for urban travel.

In 2009, our co-founders backpacked through Eastern Europe. The trip was a blast, but our backpacks were a disaster. The perfect travel backpack didn’t exist. So we made it.

    I think you shouldn't tell people to fill a water bottle in the bathroom. You can't drink the water from the bathroom.

    Liked your video. Wanted to add a few thoughts.

    First a little background. Between 2003 and 2013 (when I retired) I logged 1,200,000 miles in world travel. Many +30 hr wheels up to wheels down (the longest is 38 hrs from Perth Australia to Houston).

    My thoughts:

    Travel comfortably- Basically on a long flight focus on comfort ant style. Basically where your Pj's on tho the plane:
    Bottoms- Pull on pants like the nike. hurley-dri-fit-drifter-jogger-elastic-cuff-pants (elastic bottom cuffs) or the nike dri-fit-stretch-woven-running-pants (zippered bottom cuffs). I always traveled with a grey pair and a black pair.
    Tops- Long sleeves (it gets cold when you are sleeping like nike hypervis-half-zip-2-golf-top. I always traveled with a couple pair. Another good alternate is the Exoffciao SO Cool line
    The bottom line needs to be focused on comfort. Only once in my career did I get off the plane (in London) and go right into a meeting. Plan your trip so that you are anonymous until you arrive at the hotel.

    When you are sleeping- Ear plugs. If you are going to sleep you need them. These are good: Boules-Quies-Ear-Plugs.

    When you are awake- Airplanes are noisy. You need bose quietcomfort-25-acoustic-noise-cancelling-headphones.

    Enjoy the ride.
