Here are The Traveling Professor's tips on keeping healthy on your next flight:

Never Reach into the Seat Pocket:  Possibly the dirtiest of dirty places on the plane.  It is rarely, if ever sanitized. 

Use Good Quality Sanitary:  This is my top tip.  Wipe down the tray table thoroughly as well as the arm rests. If the seat back in front of you has a touch video screen, do that too.  These two places are the dirtiest places on the plane.  I recommend using wipes like these

Get a Tray Table Cover and Pocket Organizer:  It covers the tray and give you pockets so you don't need to reach into the plane seat pocket.  Here is one we like

Be Well Rested:  Getting on a flight, especially an overnight flight is going to upset your routine and lower your resistance to germs.  Get a good amount of rest before boarding a flight. 

Be Careful of What You Eat and Drink:  During a flight is no time to be adventurous in eating or drinking. 

Use Hand Sanitizer at Every Opportunity:  Most diseases are transmitted by your own hands touching your face, eyes, and mouth.

6 Tips for Visiting Venice

tips for visiting VeniceTo me, Venice is the most unique city in the world. It floats in the sea.

The pedestrian streets (there are no cars on the island, except for one very limited place) wind through the city with no rhyme or reason. We often travel there on The Traveling Professor's small group tours and our travelers love it. But there are a few tips we have for you in today's blog post about the city of Venice, or as they say it in Italy, Venezia.
