6 Tips to Making a 16 Hour Flight Less Boring

Thinking about taking a vacation out of the country? Or maybe just planning another business trip? Whatever the reason, people seem to be traveling more internationally, flying overseas for ten plus hours in a metal tube in the sky. If you’re lucky, the airline has personal screens for you to choose from a variety of TV shows, movies, games, puzzles, music, audiobooks, podcasts, and more, but after the first six hours, it gets old.
