Link: Surviving traveling

| | Comments (0)
The NYTimes (2005.07.03) has an interesting article about how to survive business traveling:
IF you are a working stiff like me, you probably have to travel, and travel a lot. And unless you travel by private jet - a treat I had again last week - you probably suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous travel fortune: long lines; maddening, foot-tapping fellow passengers; hotel rooms that smell like gymnasiums; noisy neighbors; hard-to-find taxis; meals that leave you clutching your abdomen at 3 in the morning.

My own tip is to try to get as much sleep on the plane as possible -- regardless of whether it's a domestic or international flight. An 8 hour flight is only a 1 hour flight if you're asleep for 7 hours. Don't drink caffeine before boarding the flight and try to be slightly sleep deprived beforehand. is essential these days in choosing seats. My own choice is also aisle seats, but that's because I have a stiff knee. Be careful of choosing exit row seats, some of them don't recline fully. Use SeatGuru to figure out which seats in the exit rows are reclinable.
