It’s easier to stay upright if you just keep moving.
I’ve got a constant and nagging case of wanderlust, and I will jump at the opportunity to pack my bags and move in a heartbeat. I've been lucky enough to have traveled pretty extensively in my life, and in two weeks - I'll be boarding a plane to Costa Rica to visit a friend in paradise.
A little part of me secretly wants to be a travel agent (ok - a big part of me) so naturally I spend months before a vacation extensively planning out what I want to see or do, eat and stay. It's all boring stuff to anyone who isn't me, I mean... who really wants to listen to me talk about a Costa Rican Sloth Sanitary for half an hour? No one- that's who.
The downside to travel, however, is easily the transportation portion. How do you keep up the momentum of a trip, with a long flight ahead of you? By reading these fun articles!
Flying is not fun. There, I said it. It's uncomfortable and it makes you feel cruddy, the food is gross, and it makes your brain hurt. Why is that? This articles explains the 7 ways flying messes with your body.
With that said, there's no surprise here: I'm afraid of flying! Any little bump or sound and I'm convinced we're being sucked into the Bermuda Triangle (it doesn't even matter if we're near it!) or going down. I've got this post on standby for my next flight: 10 Ways to Chill Out When You're Nervous.
As I said before, the food they serve on flights isn't the best. So, why not pack your own lunch? Here are 5 plane picnics to make your seat mates jealous.
Recently, I found out about this travel hack that could potentially save flyers a ton of money. I'm about 50% sure this is even legal, but SkipLagged is a site that finds "hidden cities" - you buy more tickets than you need, and discard the ones left after you've reached your destination. It's interesting - check it out at Skiplagged.
