How to Survive Flying Emirates Economy Class (Top Tips)

I flew Emirates A380 economy class from Dubai to Zurich. In the video, I gave 8 good tips on how to survive or how to enjoy economy class flying. I am sure you will benefit from some of the tip I gave!

The video also shows you the children's kit and meal on Emirates. Also Ramadan Iftar boxes are shown in the video. Enjoy the magnificent forward wing view with engine on the A380!

--------

Join me for a relaxed and fun flight from Dubai to Zurich with Emirates. I travel aboard the Airbus A380 aeroplane in Emirates economy class and I reveal eight tips and tricks on how you can enjoy and get the most out of your economy class flight. We can’t all experience the luxury of flying first class but this video aims to show that it certainly isn’t impossible to have a very enjoyable, relaxing and comfortable flight in economy class with just a little prior planning, research and thought.

In this video, I also specifically examine some of the comforts offered by the Emirates airline within their economy class to help their customers. One thing we focus on is Emirates’ provision for children and we examine the complimentary items including blankets, bibs, baby wipes and colouring in books which are given out to families with young children.

Tip #1 – Even if you’re flying in economy class, try and access a credit card lounge before the flight to make yourself more comfortable and prepared for boarding. You’re more likely to start the flight in a better mood and in a more positive state of mind, especially if you’ve had to wait at the airport for a while, if you’ve had something to eat, had a comfortable seat to sit on and been in relaxed and more quiet surroundings. If you are not eligible to enter one of these lounges, consider paying for entry; it is likely to be well worth your investment as one of the biggest reasons why people do not enjoy their flight in economy class is because they were not in the right frame of mind to begin with.

Tip #2 – Use a website such as expertflyer.com to see where clusters of empty seats are on the flight that you wish to take. By using this website, you may be able to purchase seats from the airline’s website which are in a quieter spot, with less people surrounding you. expertflyer.com can show real time seat maps for your flight up to one hour before the departure of the flight, letting you make an informed decision as to the best seat location for you in economy class.

Tip #3 – Use a website such as seatguru.com to get to know the layout of the economy class on your flight better so that you can select more advantageous economy seats with views over the engines, or, perhaps most importantly, with more leg room. There’s almost always a few economy seats with much, much more leg room than others because of the free space that has to be left in front of the aircraft’s mid-placed emergency exit.

Furthermore, after coming on board, if there’s a very favourable seat which is vacant and unsold, grab it before anybody else does!

Tip #4 – If you can, travel in the low season when fares are lower and when planes are less crowded. Low season months are February, May and November.

During my flight in Emirates economy class, I was able to move around to a large number of different seats as, travelling in May, it was low season. I was also able to lie down over a complete row of four economy seats and get a quality rest as if I was in business class, but without business class prices! If you can, it certainly pays dividends to travel in economy class when it’s less busy in the low season.

Tip #5 – Always bring a bottle of water with you to stay hydrated and avoid excessive alcohol consumption which can dehydrate you. Additionally, always bring an eye-shade with you so that you can get quality rest whenever you need it; these are provided on some longer haul flights but it’s always best to have your own, just in case.

Tip #6 – Wear something loose and comfy to promote good well being and also good blood circulation whilst you’re up in the air. This is especially important when the flight is crowded and/or there isn’t a lot of leg room and movement is restricted. This follows on to…

Tip #7 – Wherever possible, stretch your limbs and walk around the cabin – it doesn’t just help keep your blood circulating in what can be a cramped economy class but it keeps your mood happy too. Feeling confined and restricted in economy class is a big source of uncomfortable economy class flights.

Tip #8 – Stay smiling and stay positive whenever travelling in economy class. Don’t forget to bring your headphones with you to listen to some of your favourite tunes whilst you’re in the sky!

I really want to hear your opinion – do you have any thoughts about what makes for a good trip in economy class? Is there anything that you swear by? Leave your comments down below and, as always, thanks for watching!

The Pedalshift Project 129: Bicycle touring France

Bonjour from France! Although I'm in Paris for a non-bike touring related work trip, being in the City of Light has me thinking about a future trip out here with my bike. On this episode, we cover all things bike touring France... tips on camping, traveling, handling language differences, and much more.

Bonjour! Bicycle touring France I have *not* toured in France yet, but I've done a fair amount of research on it... so much of this pod is about a brain dump of things I discover and eventually test out, but I want to be upfront that I'm going on a lot of other people's experience on this.   I have done a lot of traveling and hitting campsites on one trip in the south of France a bunch of years ago, so I definitely have some insight on the larger culture and some tips from that experience.   My biggest barrier... I speak little to no French. I'm working on survival phrases and always leave every trip a little more comfortable with interactions and the language. Paris is good training wheels as an English speaker, because so many people speak English. I always try French first and the kind folks will pivot into English because... well, I'm not good at French.   Would love to hear more from those of you who have done tours in France to help supplement. Camping France has a huge camping culture... that was surprising to me for some reason.  About 8million people camp in Frances's 10,000 registered campsites per year. That's mostly cars, but the setup is wide and plentiful for bike camping too. July and August are PACKED. It's possible to get shut out during this high season, so consider traveling outside of these two months. Winter? Many of the sites are closed. Municipal sites are run by (duh) the villages and are great values - sometimes just a couple euro per night. Some private ones like along the Med are resorts with pools and beaches and cost a lot more. But they can be amazing based on personal experience. Most maps of France have excellent indicators of where there are campsites (international icon). Make sure you have one of the area you're in. Wild camping is technically illegal in France. But as always if you practice good technique (don't be a jerk, pack in and pack out, stay hidden, arrive late, leave early, respect the property) you should be fine. Eating Dude, it's France. A bakery in every town. Fresh food.  If you cook, chances are you can get fresh ingredients every day unless you're in a really remote spot. If you don't, chances are you'll find cafes, groceries, markets, etc. in every town. Watch out for Sundays. In a lot of France, towns just shut down all day. Be sure to have some food on you Saturday unless you know you have a destination the next day that is open. Routes France has excellent routes following EuroVelo routes that leave the country if you're doing a bigger tour - a good resource, and the official tourism site have amazing options I use maps.me for offline maps. It even has offline bike routes. Download all you need offline and it can get you where you need. It even lets you search for addresses or major places offline. Super helpful if you have limited or no access to data. Getting there and around France has excellent train and ferry systems... and they tend to be bike friendly, but as always check in advance for your particular route.  Many people fly in and out of Paris to start... the good news is it's a great bicycling city with multiple routes that lead out of town.  It's totally possible to ride from CDG to the center of the city. It's a little over 20 miles... here's a good, tested route. Of course, there's always trains and even Uber. What catches my eye I loved the south of France, but its super busy during high season, and I don't think I'd want to bike there then. I have a cousin who lives and works in Brussels, so I'm intrigued with a tour loop that begins and ends in Paris taking the EuroVelo 3 and 5 to Brussels for a visit and then a return the same way or a loop through Lille and hooking up with EuroVelo 4 and then the London-Paris route back into Paris. Oh and I hear they have wine? Eurovelo 3 from Paris goes to Bordeaux.  Listener tips and recommendations Kieran from Cork, Ireland   France is a great cycling nation - we really had a great time there and were met with patience and good nature even though our French was minimal. France is by no means an inexpensive country but ... campsites were clean, good value and very welcoming to 2 sweaty Irish lads! We travelled mainly on B roads through rural countryside with plenty of hills but nothing too bad and we felt our fitness growing each day. We used the train system to make our way back to ferry terminals with no issues loading our bikes on board. I don’t have much touring experience but France left a long lasting positive effect on me and gave me a hunger for more. Adrian from the UK   ...

How Dalgona From Squid Game Is Made

This is how the honeycomb from #squidgame is made. Dalgona, a sweet sponge candy, is a popular Korean street snack. Also known as ppopgi, the candy became popular in the '70s and continues to be a nostalgic treat. Some vendors will give you one for free if you can get the shape out without cracking it.

How Dalgona From Squid Game Is Made

Virtual Tour #9 - Walking SF - St Patrick day Party | Phelan building to City Hall [ VR 4K 360° ]

Party is at 19:27 and 22:20 FYI

360° Walking in SF during St Patrick day Parade and after Party at San Francisco City Hall | Phelan Building to Civic Center walk | Unedited | no music

The awesome 360 video is a 25 min walk shooted on insta360 camera walking on Market street. Crossing tenderloin, and going to civic center

The Phelan Building is an 11-story office building located at 760 Market Street in the Financial District of San Francisco, California. It has a triangular shape reminiscent of the Flatiron Building in Manhattan, New York City, with its tip at the meeting point of Market Street, O’Farrell Street, and Grant Avenue. It is a San Francisco Designated Landmark.

The building was designed by William Curlett and built in 1908 by James D. Phelan on the place of the first, original Phelan Building, damaged by the 1906 earthquake and fire. It was once home to the George Haas and Sons Candy Store, marketed as the most beautiful candy shop in the country. Their business also operated a tea room on the second floor.

San Francisco City Hall is the seat of government for the City and County of San Francisco, California. Re-opened in 1915 in its open space area in the city's Civic Center, it is a Beaux-Arts monument to the City Beautiful movement that epitomized the high-minded American Renaissance of the 1880s to 1917. The structure's dome is taller than that of the United States Capitol by 42 feet. The present building replaced an earlier City Hall that was destroyed during the 1906 earthquake, which was two blocks from the present one. It was bounded by Larkin Street, McAllister Street, and City Hall Avenue (a street, now built over, which ran from the corner of Grove and Larkin to the corner of McAllister and Leavenworth), largely where the current public library and U.N. Plaza stand today.

The Civic Center in San Francisco, California, is an area of a few blocks north of the intersection of Market Street and Van Ness Avenue that contains many of the city's largest government and cultural institutions. It has two large plazas (Civic Center Plaza and United Nations Plaza) and a number of buildings in classical architectural style. The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (formerly the Exposition Auditorium), the United Nations Charter was signed in the War Memorial Veterans Building's Herbst Theatre in 1945, leading to the creation of the United Nations. It is also where the 1951 Treaty of San Francisco (the peace treaty that officially ended the Pacific War with the Empire of Japan, which had surrendered in 1945) was signed. The San Francisco Civic Center was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places on October 10, 1978.

The Tenderloin is a neighborhood in downtown San Francisco, California, in the flatlands on the southern slope of Nob Hill, situated between the Union Square shopping district to the northeast and the Civic Center office district to the southwest. It encompasses about 50 square blocks, is a large wedge/triangle in shape (point faces East). It is historically bounded on the north by Geary Street, on the east by Mason Street, on the south by Market Street and on the west by Van Ness Avenue. The northern boundary with Lower Nob Hill historically has been set at Geary Street.

EP 1 Varanasi ( Banaras, Kashi) 5 am to 8.30 Pm

Our Day at Banaras started with Subah -E -Banaras, dip in the Holy waters of Ganga, visit to Bhagwan Vishwanath temple. We also explored local food, enjoyed some unique chaat like Tamatar chaat.

This journey ended with Ganga Aarti at Dashashwamedh ghat. It was a very long day, great spiritual learning at Banaras and a lovely day.

When i was in Surat, Gujarat i heard a famous saying: Surat Nu Jaman, Ani Kashi Nu Maran, then only i decided that i had to visit Kashi. I also visited Mukti Dham where people check in to die.

Details of all the places visited by us on day 1 of our Varanasi journey is given below:

After 2 days i shifted to Hotel Buddha this is also in old city area about 3 km from Kashi vishwanath temple, this place was in a small lane disconnected from traffic area.

Cost per day tariff: Rs 2600 at both these hotels incidentally almost same cost on dual occupancy.

i like peaceful areas especially when it comes to staying in a hotel, so shifted.

Hope you enjoyed watching this episode. Soon you will see more of Kashi on visa2explore. Till they good bye see you soon.

Share Google Location in real time when traveling: Great Google Maps feature when getting lost!

Share your Google location in real time by using the Google Maps App! When traveling to other places, new countries or big cities like Bangkok, Jakarta, Mexico City, Tana or Hanoi getting lost is part of the deal. This is how you explore a new place and it can be really fun! But sometimes getting lost is annoying or also terrifying! Especially if you want to meet someone in a big city or if you are a group of people and you split up for a while. One day in Medan Verena and me we had to split up for 30 minutes as I needed to pick up some money at a bank. A tuk tuk driver was driving me, but the feeling was a little bit scary as I needed to get a lot of money! Verena did not know where I was and was waiting for a long time. Having a smartphone and internet connection allows you to use the google maps feature Share location. When you share your location via google maps with another person, your friend, girlfriend or whoever can follow where you are! Great feature! You just simply need to follow these steps to share your location on google maps:
1. Open the app google maps
2. Select Share Location on the left hand side of the google maps app
3. Select the timing: How long do you want to share your location via google maps
4. Select the person you want to share your location with or send a link of your location
That is it! Really easy and a good way to let your friends track where you are if you want to meet in a big city!
