Things You Can Do On An Airplane
If you’re headed on a super long airplane ride and don’t want to do the usual, worry not. You can very well ditch your phones and the same old movies. Thus, here are some innovative ideas as to what you can really do on your next airplane ride.
Watch a new series. Pick one TV show you’ve been meaning to watch and download the first season to your iPad.
Listen to a podcast. Sync up a few TED Talks or download your favorite podcasts. You’ll enjoy listening to them as you gaze at the clouds outside your window.
Play a game. If you’re traveling with someone, bring a compact game to play in-flight.
Plan something. Plan the décor of your next home, a dinner party, a surprise birthday, or a work project. You will also be super productive.
Edit your Instagram photos. If you took hundreds of photos on your trip, use an app like VSCO to edit and make them picture-perfect. Thereafter, drop the photos into Planoly to create the perfect Instagram grid.
Try journaling. Write down your thoughts about the trip and keep the memories forever.
Learn to meditate. There’s no better time to give meditation a try than when you’re stuck seated for hours.
Write a heartfelt letter or email. Take the opportunity to express your gratitude to someone, write an apology, or let someone know you care.
See? There’s so much you can do on an airplane without being on your phone!
Going On A Vacation? Store Your Documents Wisely
It does not matter whether you are going to another state or a different country – safeguarding your documents like passport, visa, and ID cards is very important when on a trip. Losing these things causes great stress, costs you time and money and ruins the holiday instantly!
So, here is a guide to keeping these important things safe and secure:
Make copies of your documents – loads of them
You must have multiple copies of all your documents on you. These documents include your passport, visa, birth certificate, credit cards, etc. You must also have a set of passport-sized photographs with you as well.
Another good idea here is to have copies in both color and black and white. Having copies helps because, in case of any emergency, you can go to the embassy for new documentation.
Carry a copy with you always
Whether you are going for a walk or a city tour, you must have a copy of your documents with you at all times. Get a travel document holder to make carrying and accessing them easier. You can also scan the documents and back them up on your phone. That way, you will at least have a digital copy with you. Be sure to add a password to that album or folder.
You are going to a distant land with new laws and regulations. Do not risk your precious documents just like that. Use ziplock bags or waterproof files to keep them safe from rain damage or coffee stains.
We go on trips to relax, learn about new cultures, and broaden our horizons. So enjoy, take pictures, and be curious when in a new place. But planning and thoroughness are important, because things like losing or forgetting documents can turn everything upside down.
Indians Cut Down On Traveling Due To Economic Slowdown
We all are aware of the economic slowdown of the nation. What we don’t know is that it is affecting the travel industry as well. Indians have surely cut down on their vacations and trips. This took place due to the intense circumstances in the economy of the country.
Yes, recession has surely hit the nation. That is why the citizens of India are trying to save as much money as they can. Hence, from a week-long lavish foreign tour, people have come down to weekend getaways and road trips only.
According to Nishant Kashikar, Country Manager – India & Gulf, Tourism Australia, “A key trend witnessed in this segment is their (Indian travelers) ability to take shorter and frequent holidays, planning much earlier (for every possible long weekend), and leveraging the sharing economy model and the low cost carrier (LCC) segment. Value-conscious Indians are now planning smartly by booking their trips well in advance and leveraging flash sales and discounts, instead of opting out of travel completely.”
This is how the Indian repo rate and economic growth graph looks like:
The above image is a clear indication of the economic slowdown of the nation. Travel industry is directly affected by this slowdown. This is because people spend lavishly on their trips only if they are financially sound. Also, financial stability allows them to exceed their monthly budget.
Daniel D’Souza, President and Country Head, Leisure, SOTC Travel said, “Families, couples, and millennials, especially from tier I and tier II cities, are opting for short getaways to destinations like Goa, Gokarna, Ooty, Kodaikanal, Khandala, Lonavala and Pondicherry to unwind.”
