10 Travel Tips From A Frequent Flyer

10 Travel Tips From A Frequent Flyer

From my Frequent Flyer miles to you

1. Pack your hand luggage light, and your check-in back heavy

The worst thing is searching through your large-sized Kate Spade to try and find your passport, because you chose to bring a big carry-on so you could fit your crafts kit in there for the boring mid-flight hours. Take a small carry-on with JUST the essentials i.e. dump the books and the passport, and go with the crafting kit.

2. Take earplugs

There is nothing worse than falling asleep finally and being woken up by screaming child. Furthermore, earplugs indicate that you do not want to be woken so will stop flight attendants from disturbing you.

3. Stay warm

Planes get really chilly, especially when you're on the back of the back section, in the nosebleeders, because you spent all your money on the clothes you're going to wear on your trip. You're right by the vents in this area of the plane, so take a scarf and an extra pair of fluffy socks so you don't get cold.

4. Snacks are free

Ask for free stuff. You don't realize JUST how many bags of peanuts and pretzels lie beyond that mysterious curtain at the front of the plain, but it would be enough to feed a starving country.

5. Use the First Class bathroom

Sneak up and use the First Class bathroom. It is slightly bigger, and their soap smells nicer. Flight attendants also check on this bathroom and keep it nice and clean.

6. Don't carry your laptop

For long-haul flights in the modern age, most planes will have a TV. If you are trying to do some work on the plane a) don't do it, relax b) there are amazing movies which aren't on Netflix yet! If you really feel the need to work, take a mini iPad on there as laptops are heavy, take up a lot of space, and are often checked at airport security if they are in your carry-on.

7. Use a colorful check-in bag

Speed up the process by knowing which back is yours on the belt and avoiding a luggage switch-up.

8. If using the overhead storage, put your bag at the front of the plane

This way, in the rush to get to customs, you won't be waiting in your seat to retrieve your bag from the back of the plane.

9. Advil, melatonin, and a glass of wine is the recipe for a peaceful flight

This doesn't need an explanation but has been my remedy for the last couple of years, as I do about six 11 hr flights a year

10. Don't have children

Or at the very least, don't fly with them.

I Spy With My London Eye...Queen Elizabeth!

A City That's More Than Just Tea and Crumpets

London. Where to begin? As an American studying in Italy where carbohydrates are the main food group and American coffee does not exist, the UK was a refreshing taste of home, quite literally. I nearly drooled at the sight of the Starbucks logo. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but really, it was needed after a month of "one-sip" espresso shots and "large" cappuccino's that would pass as a mini at home. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Italy and my home in Florence, but a little familiarity was much appreciated.

The city of London resembles American cities in its modernity but is bursting with ancient history and amazing sights around every corner. There is the Big Ben, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, London Eye, and many more monuments to marvel at. Of course these tourist sights sit in the bustling center of the city, but the outskirts and small towns surrounding London are well worth a visit. A weekend is not nearly enough time to explore all that England has to offer, but any time spent there will not disappoint, even if it rains!

I highly recommend taking a ride on the London Eye, as it provides an amazing 360, panoramic view of the city. The Shard, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, London Bridge, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London are just a few of the monumental sights you can see while riding.

The double decker bus tours are also worth your time, as they provide historical facts to accompany the monuments as you pass them. If you're lucky and the weather cooperates, the open-air top deck is the place to be!

There is also Covent Gardens which, for the Northeasterners out there, resembles Faneuil Hall in Boston. It is a half open-air, half inside hall lined with stores, restaurants, and cafes. It is always teeming with people, and there is often people singing or playing instruments, which makes for the perfect spot to take a break and enjoy some quality entertainment with a drink.

While the grand monuments are obviously a must-see, you simply cannot go to London without riding in a Black cab or taking a photo with an authentic red telephone booth. These embody British culture in its most basic and historical sense.

London is a city that should be on everyone's bucket list. The sights are simply incredible and the atmosphere is nothing short of welcoming. I am lucky enough to have family in this wonderful city and know that I will be returning someday. Until next time, cheerio London!
