For the first sixteen years of my life I could count the amount of times I travelled on a plane on one hand. I’ve been incredibly lucky that over the past few years I’ve had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in the world. The only downside to that traveling is flying. Blame it on Lost but I hate flying. It’s the fear and the boredom that drives me crazy. But I have learned a few things and quite honestly I don’t think you’d get me onto a flight without these essentials to make things a little easier.
I equate being on an aeroplane to being on a rollacoaster-my stomach is always in bits and I can’t be faced with food. The only thing that I can eat and not feel sick after is Original Pringles. Odd I know, but they’re very plain tasting and don’t upset my stomach and settle it a bit if I’m not feeling great. Pringles are thankfully something that are always on sale on flights but they tent to cost 2 for the small tube. I come prepared with my own large tube!
It reassures me to have travel sickness tablets with me and I normally take them as instructed before flying long haul. I don’t tend to need then flying on shorter flights but I also carry Motillium. If you do ever feel sick remember that they are there to help and they do have certain medicines and remedies on board.
