Inflight Playlist


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.

    Ahhh, have fun in the Middle East/Israel! (I’m very proud I know where Tel Aviv is because before taking my Middle East course last year, I wouldn’t have known who/what/where that is, hah)
    I can’t sleep on planes AT ALL. Of course, it depends on flight duration, but I’d rather be cramming in as many tv shows/movies as I can on the flight.

    If a playlist like this can help you sleep through flights, we are so game to give it a try, and good to know you like IT, we were a little skeptical but might have to give it a ready now.

    The playlist looks really interesting! I am spending the weekend in the beach (finally!) with my husband and some friends, saying bye bye to Chilean summer, and it seems perfect to listen there as well.
    Enjoy the weekend xx
