So, What’s the longest flight YOU have ever been on?
Have you ever wondered how far you have traveled in one full swoop? Spare a thought and credit yourselves a chance. Though there are plenty of travelers I who just hate sitting on a plane being told when can they get up, when can’t they; what can they bring on board, what can’t they on board on long-haul flights. There are many who harbor very little love for long-haul flights.
Well I wont be hardpressed to find myself on this strange bucket list to be on board in the longest of non-stop flights in the world, without even touching down for a layover. I often wonder what its like to absorb the surreal experience of taking the longest non-stop flight in the world with the sweetest of window seat and my laptop, documenting the experience- the stunning landscapes, mesmerizing views, breaking a friendly discussion with an awesome seatmate, taking selfies, eating, drinking, sleeping and much more..
