Economy, Business, or First?

I have flown quite a bit over the past few years. A few of those times I had the privilege of flying business and business-first class. For those who don’t know the difference between the three, they become very apparent depending on how long your flight is. So how do you choose? My general rule of thumb is, if your flight is 5 hours or less, economy or economy plus will do just fine. Flying in a better class usually isn’t worth it on the shorter flights in my opinion. If your flight is 8 hours or longer I would definitely suggest flying business or first class, if you can afford it. This tip comes solely from a comfort aspect. Sitting for 8 hours straight can be torture for most people, myself included. Since most of us aren’t on flights of that length regularly, it won’t hurt to splurge on yourself once a year. Perks include: having a seat that allows you to lie down or recline, the food/alcohol selection is much better and often included in your ticket, and you have more space to yourself. Amenities vary depending on airline and aircraft. SeatGuru.com can provide that information for you. If you have more questions, contact me or leave a comment below. Thanks for reading!

Go It Alone!

Today’s travel tip is really a lifestyle tip as well. Go everywhere, to everything, ALONE.  Waiting for others to get on board with your plans will cost you time, money, and experiences. As a single woman, the thought of doing things alone can be scary and awkward. But only if you let it. Doing things alone has its benefits such as: You can make moves when you’re ready, without having to consider someone else. Reservations are easier to make for smaller parties. Being alone draws other people to you. You seem more approachable, giving you opportunities to meet new friends. The best benefit to traveling and doing things alone is that you learn more about yourself than you ever thought you would. You learn how you respond to different situations and you’re forced to push yourself beyond your comfort zone. Comment below and tell me why you do or don’t enjoy doing things alone. Thanks for reading!
