Vacation season might be wrapping up as children everywhere prepare to head back to school soon. The lucky ones among us, though, might be able to squeeze in one more quick trip. For some, that means air travel. Having completed my fair share of that already this summer, I wanted to share a list of five things you should never do on an airplane. Many of these things seem like common sense, but so does not ironing in your sleep and yet they still have that warning on the box. I am not kidding when I tell you that I’ve witnessed each and every one of these actions taking place on a flight.

Ever since Pharrell Williams bounced into our lives singing the Happy song, I can’t stop hearing the Happy song. You simply can’t avoid it. It’s on the radio, television, elevators, airports, our computers and in the middle of my soft taco dinner this week at a friendly restaurant. My wife had it on a loop on her laptop playing it over and over again until I finally ran screaming from the house. Folks on the Internet from across the globe are dancing to the tune that apparently makes them happy, happy, happy.
(NAPSI)—Most people know the basic necessities to pack, but what about ways to enhance the travel experience, not just make it happen?

Our children and our family are often our #1 priorities—we do whatever is necessary to make sure their needs are met, often times pushing our own needs to the side, including those things we need to do to make sure we keep ourselves healthy.

“I have had it with these ‘monkey fighting’ SMSs on this ‘Monday to Friday’ plane!” No, it’s not a line from the latest Liam Neeson action vehicle, Non-Stop, but it could have been.
