As you may or may not know but we are all heading back to Australia to do a tour with the beautiful Bear in Heaven and The Antlers.
Both bands are based in Brooklyn, (where we live) however there is something kinda wonderful about flying back to Sydney to play with these guys…
but then there is the flight.
Long-haul flights- I hate them (tanya)
You can never really chose who you’re going to sit next to, I always pick a window seat as I am a fearful flyer and need to see outside. (go figure)
The food you know is always bad for you, you could chose the ‘healthy’ option but then what’s the point, it’s dry cereal with milk, which probably contains mainly cupboard and being a kiwi I need something more hearty.
The food generally makes me feel sick, I drink to much red wine and take to much Xanax which makes me wake up forgetting where I am, fumble my way to the toilet, eyes puffy and drunk, all the while breathing in someone elses infection.
Maybe that’s what the awfully named song ‘catch my disease’ means by Ben Lee.
Anyway I was trying to figure out the best way to NOT get sick on long-haul flights - outside of going japanese and wearing a mask, which lets face it is probably the most logical and healthiest thing to do.
If anyone has any ideas post them - or ways to make these flights less monotonous… share away.
Anyway will post another little ditty today - in NZ.
This place is amazing.
