What are some travel hacks to make long plane rides more enjoyable?
Life on the airplane is a life of its own! Do whatever you can to keep yourself busy! During long flights I recommend:
Watch 2 movies on the entertainment screen.
Read almost a whole ebook on my Kindle
Sort some pictures in my digital camera.
Play a few games on my smartphone.
Write for my blog.
Have a nap (or two).
Speak to a neighbor.
Stare at some fellow passengers 🙂 secretly, of course.
Eat a few snacks, have a few drinks.
Stretch in the toilet area, walk in the aisle.
Inspect the toilet, check how much paper there was, do a little dance, stretch again, just fool around.

It’s a good idea to do everything separately – don’t try to multitask. If you are eating, don’t watch a movie at the same time. When meal is served, take your time and just eat, as slow as possible. It will pass 30 minutes at least. Also make sure not to drink too much, avoid alcohol (as it will dehydrate your body and make it difficult to sleep, as you will be waking up all the time with your mouth dry).
