Happy Sunday to all of our travel friends, both near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
When staying overnight in an unfamiliar environment such as a hotel, many people find it difficult to fall asleep. It makes sense, of course – you’re not used to the mattress, there are sounds you’re not familiar with (like the air conditioner) or expect (like the drunks loudly slithering into their room at 3am), or your brain simply won’t shut off because of reasons.
Fortunately, there are several ways to help you fall asleep in a hotel faster. In fact, there’s even a technique that’s said to help you fall asleep in just two minutes!
As technology has advanced, so has the ability for flights to become longer and longer. As of October 2018, Singapore Airlines has the longest flight in the world, at 9,521 miles. Depending on weather, climate conditions and airport traffic, you can expect to spend 18 hours and 45 minutes on that flight.
Chances are that most, if not all passengers will get at least some sleep while on flights that are that long (if you’re one of those people who has a hard time sleeping on planes, these ideas might help). The cabin crew will need to get some sleep, too. But did you ever wonder exactly where they sleep? I mean, it’s not like you see beds or cots in the cabin. And how do they figure out who gets to sleep when? And for how long?
While perusing the internets, I think I discovered the ultimate answer.
Happy Wednesday to all of our travel friends, both near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
There are lots of reasons for getting stuck in an airport overnight. Your flight was cancelled (or you somehow missed it) and the next one isn’t until the morning. You have a REALLY long layover. There’s a weather delay. Or you planned it this way and sleeping at the airport is cheaper than staying at a hotel.
Whatever the case, the facilities available to you vary from airport to airport and fortunately, there’s a website that can help you with what to do at over 1200 airports around the world…
