Celebrity Quirky Travel Habits – Flying Fear Tricks and Tips for Boredom
Everyone has their unique or even weird habits. These celebrities have admitted their quirky travel habits. Ranging from easing their fear of flying to tips for boredom, you’ll find these confessions of travel habits amusing…and even relatable!
Olivia Munn – DIY Motion Sickness Remedy
“I keep packets of salt, like the ones from restaurants. I learned from a flight attendant that when you get motion sickness, you should mix half a cup of ginger ale with salt. You down it and your nausea goes away in a minute!”
Usually, I stick with ginger pills for my go-to natural motion sickness remedy, but I will have to try this. I bet it you would be great in a pinch! (Sorry for the terrible pinch of salt pun.) Thanks to Olivia’s tip during an interview with Us, it looks like I’ve got another travel hack!
Kit Harington – Fear of Flying
“I’ve got a lucky pen — it’s one I’ve had since I was a kid, and I carry it everywhere. And I haven’t lost it yet; I’ve lost everything else. I’m kind of OCD, actually. Every time I get on a plane, I have to touch the outside of the plane three times before I get in.”
I think we all have a habit of touching the outside plane before I board. Maybe it helps ground us, emotionally speaking, but it’s good to know celebs have phobias too. Kit isn’t the only celeb who touches the plane before boarding…
Jennifer Aniston – Fear of Flying
“If I walk onto an airplane, I always have to go on with my right foot first and tap the outside of the plane. I have always done it. For luck. Someone told me to do it, and I don’t remember when that was. But it’s kind of stuck.”
Anything we can do to comfort ourselves and give the feeling of control is so helpful to stave off fears of flying. Sounds like someone gave her good advice which she shared via T+L.
Gwyneth Paltrow – Staying Healthy While Traveling
“I drink tons of water and try and stay really well-moisturized, but I’ll also spritz colloidal silver all over the seat, because it’s a natural antibacterial and antiviral.”
This is actually a great tip. Wiping down the seat is a great start, but the real germ-alert can be the seatback tray. Make sure you wipe it down and don’t be tempted to toy with the manuals and magazines in the seat pocket which is usually full of germs and, yes, trash. Thanks to Paltrow’s blog, GOOP, for that reminder!
Alton Brown – Favorite Travel Accessory
“An electric kettle! You can make tea, drip coffee, oatmeal. If you’re just somewhere where you need hot water to shave, the electric kettle is really great. And you can carry your socks in it when you’re not using it. So it’s pretty great.”
It may seem pretty quirky to carry a kettle around, but it’s actually really smart if you have the space for it. What is your quirky travel habit? Share your thoughts and habits in the comment section below.
