Airplane Travel with Children

  • Be prepared for take off and landing. These times can be the hardest part of any airplane trip. Children’s ears are very sensitive to the cabin pressure changes and they do not know how to equalize the pressure. For babies, have a bottle ready at these times. Drinking will clear your baby’s ears. For children that are a bit older, have some gum or juice handy.
  • Get the bulk head seats. Here you will not stress out for the entire flight constantly worrying about your children kicking the back of the seat in front of you. For babies under 1 year old, the bulk head seat on long haul flights often comes with a bassinet attachment so your baby can lie down and you can relax. Be sure to ask your airline about this when you book your ticket.
  • Bring a variety of activities. Think through the length of the flight. Do you have enough to keep the kids entertained for the duration?
  • Try a red eye. For flights that are longer than 6 hours, an overnight flight might be just the ticket. On longer late night flights, you might find that children will sleep for a good portion of the flight.
  • Prepare. If your

Cheap Flight to Brazil

If you’re flying from the US, there are many direct flights you can take from different departures for example Miami or Atlanta. Miami is usually the cheapest airport to fly from attributed to the fact that there are so many Brazilian immigrants living within the Miami area. In fact a little tip here is to search online for travel agencies in the State of Florida (most are in Miami anyway) as they often have good deals on flying to Brazil.

For Canadians however it’s a little bit more difficult because Canadians can only fly directly from Toronto. A cheap flying tip here is to investigate the possibility to fly to an American city that has a Brazil connection.

For Europeans it is much easier to find cheap flights to Brazil, as there are many cities to fly out of , on often direct flights. Further, for European travelers, Lisbon is the best choice because there are more flights to Brazil from the Portuguese capital than anywhere else, and it is often cheaper flying from another European City to Lisbon for a connecting flight to Brazil.

The best time to take the passport photo is in the day when there is a lot of natural light. Stand somewhere that gives plenty of natural light to avoid shadows on the background or face. It is important to use flat lighting to minimize the risk of a photo being rejected due to shadows.

Facial expression

Take the photos while holding a natural, relaxed facial expression. Make sure to avoid blinking, smiling, or any other expressions. Use the camera’s self-timer and take several snaps and choose the one that is most appropriate.

Plan what to wear

It helps to keep it professional and wear a collared shirt or blouse. Try to avoid the loose-fitting clothes that don’t give the best look in photographs. A light-colored shirt is great for those with dark hair, while a dark top is practical for light hair. Also, it may be practical to groom yourself. Get the hair cut if necessary and wear neutral make up to stop a photo looking unflattering and garish.
