Many of us appreciate travelling and exploring new places yet we unquestionably dislike the process of getting to the far-flung destinations on the planet, spending extended hours on flight. You may feel troubled travelling such long hours on flight regardless of how exotic the destination is at the other end. However, you can plan ahead and gear yourself with things that will help you to relax effectively. In any case, what works for one individual may not work for you. So when you fly you’ll soon discover which strategies are best for you. To get you started, here are 5 tips to survive a long flight that can help you feel better and less irritating.

Reserve a Good Seat

One of the most critical things that can make or break your flying experience is picking the right seat for your long voyage. Avoid opting for a middle seat since offering the armrests to two individuals can be extremely maddening particularly when you are setting out for 10 to 12 hours journey. Refrain from taking seat close to lavatory as the area can be noisy.

Get Some Rest

In the event of a long flight it is imperative that you get a little rest. Getting some sleep proper shut-eye will surely benefit you, especially if you are changing time zones. Ensure to carry an eye mask, a travel cushion and a comfortable light sweatshirt, jacket or blanket to get that agreeable sleep on board. These couple of basic things can really make a difference. You can dress comfortably in loosely fitting yet warm garments as most planes are chilly because of the heavy duty air-conditioners.

PatatiPatata BurgerMontreal is a city made famous for many reasons: it’s been called the “little Europe of North America”, it’s the home of the world-famous poutine, the city’s bars are open late and wild parties can be found mid-blizzard, but most importantly, Montreal is famous for its devotion to food. Whether you eat it in prestigious restaurants or in tiny, hidden dives, Montrealers know and appreciate good food when they find it. Because of this, JustFly reviews the best places to grab a delicious burger while visiting Montreal. Read on for JustFly’s favorite burgers joints in Montreal.

Patati Patata

Located in the trendy arrondissement Le Plateau, this late-night diner is a staple in the neighborhood according to JustFly. On the corner of Rachel and St. Laurent boulevard, duck inside the brightly colored and oh-so-teeny-tiny diner for the best sliders around. Okay, so they’re not full-fledged burgers, but the sliders at Patati-Patata are the perfect size for you to confidently order four without really feeling bad about it. Customize your order with either veggie or meat patties, add your garnish, grab some fries, and maybe even a beer all for the incredibly low price of a John Macdonalds (that’s $10 for those who don’t know, also it’s the purple bill). Seating in the diner is very limited, so your best bet is to take these little guys home with you and gorge on them in the privacy of your own home.
