Jet-Set and Chill: 5 Ways to Entertain Yourself on a Long Flight

World map

Flying to far-off places is exciting – the prospect of new adventures, different cultures, and exotic cuisine all await. But the journey to get there, especially a long flight? 

Let’s be real: long flights can be a real pain in the neck (and the back, and the knees…).
But fear not, my fellow wanderers! With a little preparation and some creativity, you can turn it into an entertaining experience. So buckle up, grab a complimentary pretzel, and get ready to jet-set and chill like a pro!

Catch up on that Long Movie List

Ah, the long-haul flight – a magical place where time stands still, and the only thing more infinite than the sky outside your window is the endless supply of in-flight movies at your disposal. Finally, you can watch “Gone with the Wind” without feeling guilty for neglecting your responsibilities. You can finally see “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy or rewatch “Harry Potter” for the hundredth time without worrying about your boss calling you for an urgent meeting.

Bring your Own Entertainment

Let’s face it, in-flight entertainment can be hit or miss. Sometimes you luck out with a great selection of movies and TV shows, but other times you’re left with the dreaded “Sorry, this title is not available” message. That’s why it’s always a good idea to bring a book, a magazine, or even an e-reader. Load up your phone with your favourite tunes or download that podcast you’ve been meaning to listen to. And don’t forget your headphones!

 

Mini Travel Games to the Rescue

Sometimes, the best way to pass the time is to play some good old-fashioned travel games. These little gems of entertainment can provide hours of fun and help break up the monotony of a long flight.
Bring along a pack of cards, a travel-sized chess set, or even a game of checkers. You can play solo, challenge your seatmate, or even make new friends by inviting nearby passengers to join in on the fun

Master the Local Lingo

Do you dream of ordering a croissant in French or bargaining in a bustling bazaar in Arabic? With so many language-learning resources available online, there’s no excuse not to start practicing. You can download language-learning apps, listen to podcasts, or even watch foreign films with subtitles.
So go ahead and practice your “Bonjour” or “Konnichiwa” with confidence!

Take Flight with a Plan

With a little bit of pre-planning and some helpful resources, you can make the most of your travel time and arrive at your destination feeling confident and ready to explore.
Start by researching your destination and creating a rough itinerary. Use travel blogs, guidebooks, and online resources to find out the best things to see and do in the area. And don’t forget to consider important logistics like transportation and accommodation. Bon Voyage!
