In case you missed the first part of this post that I uploaded yesterday you can check it out here. I mentioned that today I’d be sharing a few more tips for what to do the day of your educational student tour.
Shall we begin?
- Stock up on magazines, a good book you’ve been dying to read, or any other form of entertainment. If you choose to go the book route, paperbacks are the way to go. Not as heavy as their counterparts it makes them a whole lot easier to carry and maybe sneak an extra one in your carry-on. Shh… You never know when you’ll be faced with hours of waiting due to delays, cancellations, or bad weather.
- I can also not stress enough the importance of arriving at the airport early. For any international flight you should arrive no less than 2 hours before your scheduled departure time. I know this may sound crazy, but trust me you’ll have plenty of time to check in your bags and not have to rush through security.
- Grab an extra pillow while boarding the plane. If not, they’ll be gone before you know it and you’ll miss having a little more comfort.
- Don’t take your passport and/or valuables out during the flight. You could leave them behind or worse they could be stolen.
- Carry a good moisturizer with you. Use it on your hands, face, and neck every couple of hours. This will help relieve the dryness from the recirculated air.
- If you brought snacks that contain fruit, grains, and/or nuts dispose of them before disembarking. Most countries don’t allow you to bring them in.
- Try and get as much sleep as possible on the plane. It’s a good idea to go on ahead and set your watch to the time of your destination. This way you can stay up when you need to and go to sleep when the time is right. That way you’ll be all prepared to hit the ground running on your EA educational tour. It’ll be good to get out in the sunlight. Did you know that for 1 hour of daylight for each time zone you crossed assists in quick jet lag recovery?!
That’s it for this edition of travel tips to keep in mind on your student tour. Do you have any that you swear by? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time,
