8 Tips to Survive a Long-Haul Flight

All of the active travelers out there, as well as the casual ones, have or will experience a long-haul flight. What is exactly a long-haul flight or how much it has to last for it to categorized as a long-haul? Well, I don’t think there is a manual for that. In Europe, a long-haul flight is just above 4 hours, in the US, it is usually above 7 hours. Generally, airlines consider a flight that lasts for more than 7 hours a long-haul flight. But why are there so many pieces of advice about how to survive a long-haul flight, you might ask?

You can imagine that if you spend 7 or more hours in a plane seat without preparing yourself first, you will probably not have the best time of your life.

How I Spent a Layover in Mexico City

Mexico City is one of the biggest cities in the world and the largest metropolitan area in the West. On my way to Cuba, I had to spend a layover in Mexico City and instead of staying inside the airport, we decided to go outside and explore the city a little bit. I recommend you do the same. I guarantee a layover experience can be much more than sitting on a chair for a few hours or exploring the duty-free shops.

Of course, it depends on the time you have. We had 12 hours. What did we visit? How did we get there? Was everything alright or did we have some not-so-nice experiences ourselves? Read more below and you’ll find it all out about our layover in Mexico City!

Malta Diary: 10 Places You Must Visit

Malta is such a beautiful island. You won’t believe the rich history it has and the various traces culture has left on it. It’s a jewelry for travelers and locals’ reason to be proud.
