Flying on an Airplane

COMPLETED BY 377

LISTED 123

Everyone who is not afraid of airplanes surely will be willing to experience flying either during sunrise or sunset, as well as it would be a great challenge to fly during thunderstorm. It is always interesting to see the clouds in the air, see the sun and its rays and admire the view from the plane that gives you the feeling like you are somehow flying.

If you are a nature lover and it is interesting for you to catch the every moment of nature movements so don't hesitate to experience yourself in those situations as well.

However don't forget that there are things you Should Never Do on Airplanes

Sleeping through takeoff or landing. When the plane ascends or descends, the air pressure around you changes faster than the air inside your ears. If you've ever flown before, you know this can be super uncomfortable — but only temporarily. To equalize the pressure, all you need to do is chew gum; inhale, then exhale gently as you hold your mouth and nose shut; suck on candy; or yawn, according to MedlinePlus.

Sitting from takeoff to landing. Low air pressure in the cabin can slow your circulation and set you up for blood clots, particularly in the legs. Sitting around doesn't help — especially if you're on birth control pills, because some can increase your risk of developing dangerous clots (even without air travel).

Dozing off when it's daytime at your final destination. Because this will make it harder to adjust to the time zone you're traveling to, it's a surefire way to screw yourself over. Instead, change your watch to reflect the time zone of wherever it is you're going

Declining a beverage. Cabin air is notoriously dry. Because your body loses moisture every time you exhale, simply breathing at high altitudes can dehydrate you. So when the flight attendant rolls up, place an order and request refills on the regular.

Fussing with your seat belt. The Today show investigators also found that seat belts were pretty icky — they, too, were covered with potentially harmful bacteria. While strapping in is obviously your only option and you should definitely do it, avoid touching the strap after you fasten it, and put your hand sanitizer to use after buckling in.

Walking around barefoot. Sure, it's nice to make yourself feel right at home inflight — particularly when you're in the air for hours or you fly overnight. However, former flight attendants say the floor can be positively filthy — and anyone with eyeballs can confirm that. Lurking trash and food debris should be reason enough to keep your shoes on — or at least slip them on for bathroom runs.

I had a connecting flight and I flew all by myself. my first flight was in indy and I watched the sun come up. My second flight was at O'Hara and it was terrifying, but I made it on my own. I sat next to this old man who showed me pictures of his grandkids and some fish he caught. my destination was Minneapolis, Minnesota to visit my best friend Alex.

Heute zutage ist Fliegen für die meisten menschen normal, gar ein alltägliches Erlebnis. Dennoch bin ich dankbar schon mehrmals geflogen zu sein. Für die nächsten jahre sollst du aber auchmal einen etwas längeren Flug hinter dich bringen....wie wäre es mit einem 12 std flug?
