In the age of wanderlust, travelling has become an essential part of our life. From exploring different corners of the world to indulging in a luxurious vacation, getting on board a flight is pretty much where it all begins! While vacations have the ability to rejuvenate you and give you that much-needed break from your mundane life, the long haul journeys in flight do just the opposite. That’s where we need to get creative and keep ourselves busy to make the most of the impending vacation.  To help you figure out a few relaxing activities, we jotted down the best for your next flight journey.  



1. Binge watch your favourite series



Start watching an episode of ‘Game of Throne’s or ‘Stranger Things’ and we bet you wouldn’t be able to stop at one. All you need to do is check out the in-flight entertainment collection or pre-download the shows on your web viewing apps. Some flights also offer in-flight wifi, but we suggest you go packed with your entertainment.

2. Stretch your legs and take a walk




No, really. Every time you get restless just check the seat belt sign and if it’s off, just take a stroll down the aisle to give your legs some movement. It gives you the perfect opportunity to really have a look at the massive airplane and would also distract you from sitting in place for the next 5-6 hours. 

3. Chat up your flight mate



If you’re travelling with friends, it’s the perfect opportunity to have some deep and meaningful conversations with them. Also, the long flight journey gives you ample of time to plan out your everyday itinerary together. If you’re travelling alone, we suggest you engage in some small talk with the person next to you.  It will not only give you an insight to the place you’re travelling to but will also keep you distracted from the long journey.

4. Channel your inner photographer



If you have a day flight you are sure to come across some really beautiful sights of clouds and if you are smart enough to pick a window seat, you can simply while away your time by mastering your photography skills.
