Surviving a Long-Haul Flight

Posted On: 04/01/2019

Surviving a Long-Haul Flight Being stuck in traffic for hours that seem like forever is a pain. But being in a long-haul flight is an entirely different realm of pain. People spend nearly an entire day being stuck in the air, cruising for hours, and their body is mostly confused on what time of the day it is. Most of us may love traveling (because who doesn’t?), but long-haul flights are just impossible to love. Want some tips on how to survive this hateful endeavor? Read more below!

1. Comfortable outfit

The “fashion over comfort” rule is exempted in a long-haul flight. Toss the skinny jeans and tight-fitting shirts in your luggage and slide into those jogger pants and loose fittings shirts. You would want to get into the most comfortable outfit for your 15+ hours of travel time as you will be seated in a tight seat with very limited space unless you are one of the lucky ones in the first class.

2. Travel Essentials

As much as we love children, hearing them scream and cry for 15+ hours straight is just a different kind of torture. Invest in a good pair of earplugs that won’t come off as you nod off to dreamland. Speaking of nodding off, why not take that next step and invest to a memory foam neck pillow to make sure you will be somewhat comfortable in that long-haul flight.

3. Limit Personal Items

Hate to break it to you but a plane has very limited space. You want to make that space as efficiently as possible which means try not to bring big carry-ons. Granted that you can put them in the bin, some personal items sometimes are not small enough for the bins and you know where they go? That’s right, that space meant for your legs.

4. Love your Neighbor

We’re all stuck in this long-haul flight together. So, might as well be good friends with your neighbor, right? Be patient with them as they would need to excuse themselves to use the lavatories or get something from the personal items.

5. Plan ahead!

Failing to plan is planning to fail. Buy your tickets in advance so you’ll have time to prepare for other things such as, your ride to and from the airport, or preparing your luggage, or maybe do some extra work before you leave. Additional time may always come in handy! C&L Air Limo in Massachusetts offers a shuttle ride to and from the airport at an affordable price! Our drivers are all highly-trained and with the necessary certifications. Book now and experience service like no other!

Tips for Packing More Efficiently

Posted On: 01/22/2019

While traveling is one of life’s greatest pleasures, the process of packing for a trip can sometimes be extremely stressful. Many people, even those who travel on a regular basis, simply don’t know the most effective ways to pack a suitcase. Whether you’re about to embark on a quick weekend trip or a month-long journey, there are some key packing tips you should be aware of. Below, you’ll see some helpful hints that will allow you to start packing your suitcase more efficiently every time you go somewhere.

Follow the weather forecast closely.

One problem people have when packing is that they take too much because they haven’t kept close tabs on the weather forecast in their destination city. You will probably find that your suitcase is much lighter if you check the weather daily for at least a week leading up to your departure date. This will allow you to take clothing that is appropriate for the temperatures the region has been experiencing, no matter what time of year it is. If you do have to take bulky clothes because you’re headed somewhere cold, try to layer as much as you reasonably can to wear on the plane and save space in your luggage.

Roll your clothes instead of folding them.

Rolling shirts, pants, dresses, and other garments is the single best way to pack them in a suitcase. Not only does this method eliminate wrinkles in many cases, but it makes space for more clothing than folding does. It does bear noting, however, that in order to keep your things wrinkle-free, you’ll need to make sure they are made of natural fibers, such as cotton and wool. If anything does become wrinkled while rolled in your luggage, simply iron it when you get to your destination. If no iron is available, turn on hot water in the shower and leave the garment in the bathroom to be steamed.

Pack undergarments and socks into your shoes.

This tip is one that just may be a gamechanger for you when you travel. Instead of letting your socks and undergarments float around your suitcase aimlessly, roll them tightly and put them inside of your shoes. Then, place the shoes on the bottom of the suitcase so their soles don’t soil any of your clothing. This is a tried-and-true tactic that will keep things organized and clean throughout your next trip.

Leave space for souvenirs.

If you know you’re going to be purchasing souvenirs during your upcoming vacation, account for them as best you can while you are initially packing. Don’t pack your suitcase all the way to the brim so you can make sure you have space for your treasures when you’re coming home. Otherwise, you could find yourself having to buy a new bag during your trip and paying to check it, which is something nobody wants to deal with! Proper preparation is the key to efficient packing. No matter how many or how big your luggage is, we are here to help you out! We know how stressful it is lugging your suitcase around, especially after a long flight. C&L Air Limo has been around for years and with our talented drivers, we can make your travel life easier! Hopefully, these simple tips will help you have better packing experiences not only for trips you already have planned but well into the future. Traveling becomes much more enjoyable when you no longer have to dread the packing process! Remember, there’s a whole world out there waiting for you.

4 Hidden Gems of Wisconsin

Posted On: 09/25/2018

A truly unappreciated Midwestern state of the union, Wisconsin sits in the Midwest with indulgent cheese and warm, welcoming locals. While it may not seem like someone’s dream vacation spot, there are in fact many beautiful and exciting places to visit and see all over Wisconsin.

1) Peshtigo River, Athelstane
You probably don’t even know that Wisconsin had river rafting! Known as one of the longest continuous stretches of whitewater in the Midwest, the Peshtigo River offers a heart-pounding trip down intense Class III, IV, and V whitewater rapids. Rafting not your thing? Enjoy beautiful granite rock formations and spectacular scenery by the tree-lined shores of the river.

2) Cave of the Mounds, Blue Mounds
Cave of the Mounds was accidentally discovered on August 4, 1939 when workers, who were removing limestone from a quarry on the Brigham Farm, blasted into the Cave. The blast tore the face off the quarry and revealed a great underground cavern. This huge, natural system is a hidden wonderland – stalactites hang dramatically from the ceiling, and wild, colorful rock formations appear at every turn. Guided tours are now available year-round and are particularly fun during Wisconsin’s intense winters; the inside of the cave is a steady 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

3) House on the Rock, Spring Green
“One of the strangest places I’ve ever been” is how one visitor described the House of the Rock. One of Wisconsin’s most unusual hidden gems, the House is bizarre structure built on a huge sandstone base that was once a private residence. Now housing original owner’s many collections, can tour the property to see them all, including a 200-foot sea animal and the world’s largest carousel. Don’t miss the glass-enclosed Infinity Room that extends out high above the forest.

4) Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Bayfield
Hidden away at the northernmost point of Wisconsin, the Apostle Islands are a result of the glaciers that once covered North America. Known for its collection of historic lighthouses, sandstone sea caves, a few old-growth remnant forests, and natural animal habitats, feel free to rent a kayak and hop on an Apostle Islands Cruises ferry from Bayfield. During the summer, enjoy swimming in Lake Superior and paddling along the forested shores; in the winter, hike around the spectacular ice caves.

When you’re planning your next vacation, don’t count the beautiful state of Wisconsin out. And if you need a shuttle to Logan or Manchester airport, contact C&L Air Limo today!

Montana’s Hidden Gems: 4 Favorites

Posted On: 09/24/2018

Tourism to Montana has been up in recent years, with over 12 million people now visiting the state annually. There’s a reason so many people are drawn to Montana, or maybe it’s fairer to say, reasons—whether it’s the national parks, the beautiful landscapes, the fly-fishing adventures or the ski slopes, there’s something for everyone all year round.

Planning a trip to Montana? Here’s a few hidden gems you might want to tick off your list.

1) Makoshika State Park
While this isn’t one of the most well-known of state parks, it’s Montana's largest, and is incredibly picturesque thanks to the unique sandstone formations. Named for the Sioux “Land of Bad Spirits,” this park offers visitors the opportunity to walk a real dinosaur trail. See the fossilized remains of triceratops, T-rex, and more.

2) The Garden of One Thousand Buddhas
While Montana may not seem like a hot spot for Tibetan spiritualism, the Garden, located in Arlee, MT, is renowned for its elegant white buddha statues and tranquil layout. With guided tours available during the warmer months, the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas is a place anyone can come to find their inner peace.

3) The Ringing Rocks
Before there was the iPod, there was rock gongs. Located East of Butte, the Ringing Rocks create musical sounds when tapped or hit with a mallet. According to scientists, the ringing noise is a result of both the rocks’ composition and their location next to the Boulder Batholith—remove the rocks and they no longer “sing.” You’ll need to wear hiking shoes to access this one-of-a-kind geological formation.

4) Castle Town Ghost Town
Once home to Calamity Jane, Castle Town was a thriving mining community in the late 1800s. If old Western Movies have always had a special place in your heart, this might be the place to visit. Abandoned since the 1930s, it’s still possible to walk through what remains of the town and see the old meat market, post office and more. Who knows—maybe you’ll even see some ghosts. Since Castle Town is located on private land, keep in mind—you’ll need to ask permission first.

Despite its size, Montana is home to just under a million people, making it the perfect locale for getting away from all the noise and crowding that comes along with everyday life. If you need transportation to Logan or Manchester airport to finally have your Montana vacation, call C&L Air Limo today.

short history of logan airport infographic

Logan Airport was originally known as Jeffrey Field, a small 189-acre tidal flat airfield with a 1,500 ft. cinder runway, and was used primarily by the Massachusetts Air Guard and the Army Air Corps. It opened on Sept. 8, 1923.

Colonial Air
Colonial Air, the predecessor of American Airlines, begins the first regularly scheduled commercial passenger flights between Boston and New York in 1927. Ownership of Boston Airport is transferred from the U.S. Army to the Massachusetts Legislature in 1928.

Eating Well While Traveling

Posted On: 07/30/2018

Being away from home, staying in unfamiliar places, and not being familiar with where to get nutritious meals can wreak havoc on your diet. Here are a few tips to help you make healthy decisions while traveling:

At the Airport
Most larger airports have a vast array of eating options to choose from, but they’re notoriously overpriced. If you’re watching your budget along with your waistline, eat before getting to the airport. While it might be appealing to snack or indulge while you’re waiting for your flight, have a game plan of when you plan to eat and stick with it.

Bring food with you in your carry-on, along with an empty water bottle that you can fill up after you get past security. Nuts and dried fruit are good snacking choices, as well as hummus and cut veggies, sandwiches, chips or leftovers in collapsible containers.

If you have dietary restrictions like being vegan or gluten-free, you will most likely be able to find a few options, even at smaller airports. Try baked potatoes from fast food joints like Wendy’s, or a veggie-only wrap at a sandwich shop. Most restaurants will accommodate your allergies and dietary preferences if you ask.

During Your Flight
If hunger hits at 30,000 feet and you forgot to pack your own snacks or to eat beforehand, you can either stick it out or go for airline food. Some airlines have elevated their food quality, but it won’t come cheap. For insight, check out Love Exploring’s list of best airline food.

At the Hotel
Pick up some easy-to-prepare food at a nearby grocery store or market, if possible. Even if you stock up on just breakfast and snack items, you’ll eat better and save money.

Ask for a microwave and refrigerator be delivered if your room doesn’t have them. The hotel may charge you extra, but it’s well worth it if you can prepare and store your food from the grocery store or leftovers from eating out.

How to Perfect Your Family Vacation

Posted On: 07/10/2018

At C&L Air Limo we provide car service to Logan Airport and Manchester Airport, and over the years, we've seen the beginning and end of many family vacations. Here are some tips to help plan a great family vacation!

Plan in Advance
When traveling with children or teens, its crucial to plan your itinerary in advance. Sure, when you travel with another adult it can be fun to play everything day by day and not make firm plans. When you're traveling with youngsters, they need structure! You should know in advance what you're doing each day to give your kids structure.

Activities During Idle Time
If you're going to be traveling with children, you should have something to keep them occupied during idle times. Books or toys (quiet toys) during the car ride to and from the airport and during the flight will come in handy. Light mess-free snacks to keep the occupied will also bode well.

Involve Your Kids in Planning
This one speaks for itself, you should let your kids give their input on their day to day activities. This is also a great way to get them excited about the trip in advance. If you're going to Disney for example it’s almost impossible to do every activity during a few day tip. Go over the attractions on the places you plan to visit and let your kids pick which ones they want to do the most!

Reduce Stress When Possible
Vacations should be fun for everyone, but everyone who has gone through a family vacation knows that traveling can be a bit stressful at times. That's why it’s important to reduce stress when possible. Many family friendly attractions offer the ability to purchase tickets online in advance. We all know children aren't the most patient people and taking away time waiting in line with them will help everyone out. Make a trip to the grocery store when you get to the hotel and pick up water bottles and non-perishable snacks. You'll save money and time in the long run.

Finally, we do recommend booking a car service to the airport. Children get excited when they see a big SUV pull up to the house and they know their vacation is about to begin. You don't have to worry about making it on time to the airport, dealing with parking, and getting your whole family to the terminal.

    5 Places to Visit in January, 2018

    Posted On: 12/22/2017

    Winter has finally arrived here in New England and snow is coming early this year as well. If you like the cold and snow, the ski resorts in New England are great places for you. However, for many that don’t like the cold, it’s time to fly to places that are much warmer with amazing white sand beaches and icy cold drinks on the side. So here are five places to visit in January.

    1. Miami

    Miami is a popular vacation spot to escape the snow and rain in the Northeast. In fact, Florida will have the lowest humidity during the month of January. In addition to the white sand beaches, you can visit outdoor attractions such as the Wynwood Walls and Zoo Miami without breaking too much of a sweat. You should book early if you are planning to go to Miami during this time because of the snowbirds flocking south.

    2. Cambodia

    Cambodia is a destination that has been gaining popularity over the years. In addition to Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage site that was built in the 12th century, there are many other fabulous temples, white sand beaches, and breathtaking landscapes that would blow your mind. During the month of January, the weather is extremely pleasant, neither too hot nor too cold. Some key attractions include Kampot, Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, and more.

    3. Lima

    Because of its location in the Southern Hemisphere, its warm temperatures are perfect for the beautiful beaches in Lima. Then, if the heat is too much, there are plenty of impressive museums such as Museo de Arte de Lima or Museo Mario Testino. You can also celebrate Foundation Day during January which celebrates Peru’s settlement by the Spanish.

    4. Morocco

    It is one of the top names in the list of warm places to visit in January. The vibrant country is famously known for its colorful markets and mosques. Lively cities like Marrakech and Tangier are wonderful to explore in addition the Atlas Mountains, Majorelle Garden, Medina Souks, and more.
