I’ve landed in the middle east and begun to relax. It’s nice to be out of the cold. Being chilled to my core had started to wear on me.
I’ve always been able to sleep for the duration of almost any flight. New York to Tokyo, yep… Take off to landing. New York to Paris, every time. And, New York to Tel Aviv was no different. One of my tricks is setting the mood for a peaceful environment to block out everything else that is happening around me. e.g. Crying babies, food carts, laughter, movies on computers without earphones (rude), over zealous flight attendants striking up conversation with everyone, and probably a large number of other things that I miss while being asleep.
Creating that environment starts with a simple playlist and a glass of wine while reading a book. I picked up Alexa Chung’s ‘IT’ before we left after reading a recommendation on Frail Rouge. I like it so far. She’s interests me for reasons I don’t know yet.
My playlist is quiet and soothing. I can focus just enough to read for a while, but eventually I take the headphones out, and put the ear plugs in. It’s that soothing.
