A flight from California to another country can take around 24 hours. That’s a full day of being on a plane and in airports. Let’s face it: plane rides can be utterly boring. Sure, there’s the thrill of take-off, but soon afterwards everyone gets that glassy-eyed look and the babies start to cry. Here are some ideas to help you pass the hours so you won’t go insane and need a straight-jacket upon arrival at your new destination.

Also, consider enjoying many activities not actually on the Strip and right in Vegas for something a little out of the ordinary.
The currency is the US dollar, the hotels along the beach are expensive if you are on a budget, but there are apartment to be rented with advance planning. Most require a little walking.

Finally, the stock more affordable offerings that can help you save money on cruises, to use cruise comparison sites such as Travelocity, Cruisedirect, and Priceline. Check out the available offers and calculate what is the best deal of all.
Upon returning home you can dazzle your friends by having a good chinwag (a good chat), telling them all about this amazing land and its people and that’s dinki-di (good, true Australian).
