Wrapping up summer this week and heading into a new quarter, but looking back on good travel memories. Y’all know my birthday = a trip somewhere and this year it was a West Coast Tour from The A to San Diego and Los Angeles. So me and my travel sister Tanishame over @glamcury, go check her out, split up these two fab Cali towns – I planned SD and she planned LA. Too much fun, for real! Now from The A to the West Coast isn’t too bad but if you are coming from someplace further away, here are a few tips to help on a coast to coast flight.
West Coast Tour
1 – Before and during your trip – hydrate, hydrate, and more hydration. Airplanes are dry as heck so drink up and avoid alcohol.
2 – Splurge and get some good noise cancelling headphones to drown out the talking and general airplane sounds. Those free earbuds the airlines passes out are a hot mess. On a longer flight, the airlines offer some form of entertainment, good headphones make the experience so much more enjoyable. When you are ready to nap, good headphones are a lifesaver.
3 – So we got a super good deal to Cali, but it included a 3 hour layover in San Francisco. If you have a longer layover, use the airlines lounge. At the United Airlines lounge, we enjoyed WiFi, outlets for charging and a nice buffet – the mimosas were not bad either! You’ll have to be a member to visit, spoil yourself!
4 – Once you land and check-in at your hotel, skip the nap and hit the streets, grab a meal at a popular spot. We hit Sweetie Pies in LA, too dang good – was Mama back there cooking? Then come back to the room to rest and refresh!
5 – Who cares what time it is at home!!?? Get on West Coast time girl, after all you are on vacay.
Oh and did I tell you me and my twin hit Vegas on our birthday? Our first trip, just the twins and we had a ball! I hit it big a few times too!
The end of summer doesn’t signal the end of travel season, more posts to come!!
What’s your tip for jet lag or for longer flights?
