I'm travelling yet again today - thankfully it's a direct flight.  But I am sitting in the airport, waiting to board and across from me are what would be cute, small creatures except that they are screaming, strike that, sqeeling in glee.  Their harried father keeps saying, "this is not good airport behaviour" and "inside voices please."  He is on is iphone trying to ignore them now.  You know, I remember that age and just squeeling for no reason whatsoever.  Please, please let me not sit beside, in back of, or any where near those creatures.  Travelling is such a challenge.  In another week I'll be on a plane again and then 10 days later I have another trip.  Any tips on how to make this a more relaxing and less stressful time?

An iPod (particularly one with video capabilities) with good sound-isolating headphones.

@Alchemystress Booze.  That would turn me into a drunken and lolling passenger.

@DrZen what type of headphones?  Bose?

Any type of over-ear headphone is a great start. I like the Sony MDR-XD line for over-ear. It's not marketed as sound isolating, but they work much better than earbuds do. I find books more relaxing than laptops, since laptops tend to reinforce the complete lack of space.


Also, bringing a wrap or pashmina of some sort helps me relax when they decide that 40F is the correct temperature for inside the plane.
