Features of flights to exotic countries
Perhaps all fly on airplanes. Someone twice a year, on vacation, and someone several times a month, if the work is associated with frequent business trips. However, absolutely everyone faced discomfort during long flights. This is especially true of exotic and African countries.
The peculiarity of traveling to African countries is the need for vaccinations. Despite the fact that only a yellow fever vaccine is required, it is better to play it safe and be vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis and malaria.
It takes at least thirty days to vaccinate so that the body can develop immunity. It is best to inquire about a specific country, and get vaccinated against common diseases there. Children and pregnant women are advised to generally refuse to fly to exotic countries, as this may be unsafe.
Of course, distant countries entail a long journey. For example, a flight to Uganda from Moscow will take about 12 hours. Many people do not tolerate long flights and sometimes after such a journey they cannot gather strength for a long time.
To make the flight more comfortable, take warm clothes or a compact plaid with you to the cabin. In the cabin, air conditioning always works. And when the body is in a static position while sitting, blood circulates less, which can lead to chills. If you arrived at the airport in advance, then take the time to buy water in duty free. It is never superfluous. Especially in an airplane, where passengers have a slight dehydration. Of course, you can always ask water from a flight attendant, however, it can not always be free, and your own water is always at hand. If the flight is nocturnal, then toothpaste and brush will not be superfluous. It doesn’t matter whether you are awake or asleep, oral hygiene is always necessary.
If you are one of those who is rocking on airplanes, then the best way out of the situation is to sleep. To do this, stock up on earplugs, a neck pillow and a blindfold that does not allow light to pass through. Thus, you abstract from external stimuli and fall asleep with a sound sleep. This way you kill two birds with one stone: get rid of the feeling of nausea and pass the time on the road. Those who categorically cannot fall asleep in a sitting position need to occupy themselves with something so as not to concentrate on their feelings. You can watch a movie or play a game. But it is strictly not recommended to read. Eye pressure can only aggravate well-being. Especially for such cases, sour candies are distributed on airplanes. They help with motion sickness and do not allow pressure to block ears.
But where there are long flights, there are corresponding prices for airline tickets. Many are advised to monitor various sites in advance for discounts. You can also search for special offers from airlines. Often you can catch good discounts in unpopular seasons, such as late autumn or early spring.
Even if you don’t like to fly, and when you see the plane, it sucks under your stomach, you can find bright sides in everything, for example, you can enjoy the view of the sky or take time for your thoughts.
