I actually *sort of* like flying, mainly because it usually means I am going somewhere fun and fabulous! The longest I have ever been on an airplane to date is 5 hours (when I went to Seattle, oh how I long to go back). Tonight I am flying to London which means I have the joy of being on an airplane for about 7 hours. Luckily we fly out 30 minutes past my bedtime (10pm) so I am going to try and snooze the whole time. With the help of a great friend who made me an airplane survival kit, I think I have all the essentials to stay entertained, warm, and (hopefully) zonked out for the duration of the flight.
~A change of clothes, which includes clean underwear. I have never done this before but I am taking no chances since we are going to a different country.
~Tylenol PM and an eye mask. No explanations necessary.
~Warm, fuzzy socks. These were a Christmas gift and have the softest lining I have ever felt in my life. I’m going to embarrass Aves and wear these for the whole flight. 🙂
~Baby wipes. Even though I am traveling without a screaming child (thank goodness) I never go anywhere without these.
~Water. No soda for me on the plane. I am determined to stay hydrated during this trip.
~Books, magazines, and my travel journal. To entertain me in the unlikely event I wake up.
~A scarf that can double as a blanket, and a lightweight sweater. Why are airplanes always freezing??
