Use Google Maps
When you have landed and notice you have access to Wi-Fi, load Google Maps. After you've marked off your points of interest, turn off your data. As you move around, the GPS will still track your movement!

A Carry-On for Comfort
Sitting in a plane for 12 hours can be painful. Make sure you bring your comfy clothing like slippers and a poncho that can also be a blanket for later.

Nine out of every ten people are right-handed, which means most of our brains instinctively tell us to turn right. Go against the grain: Choose the leftmost line at the airline check-in. It’s almost always quicker.
