Travel is not only my favourite but also every body. Visiting many places are help people know everything about where they are on foot. Besides travel make people relax after study or hard working.

Yes i have traveled many times, mainly from Tunisia to Europe, but the longuest travel by plane was to England. It was a very good travel, i remember that i bought my boarding card from a travel agency in Tunis. I preferred traveling with a Tunisian compagny called Tunisair. I have been at the airport two hours before the check-in to ovoid the queue at the check-in desk. After getting rid of my baggage, i took my time to make a ride in the duty free before rejoining the gate 5. At midday, i boarded the plane, put my backpack in the overhead locker just above my seat. When the plane beggins to took off, i put on the seatbelt. I remember that i was afraid in the beginning of the travel, but after eating a very tasty meal, i was relaxed until the plane landed in Heathrow terminal 5.

yes, it was 3 years ago, I got the plane at 3pm and we came to Paris next day at 10am, it was very nice travel, and the first time that I take a plane. Travelling is good to discover new people and see new things that we never seen. The travel took a day, within stops, but I really enjoyed it.

Of course. Many times. The last time I flew to India at the beginning of this year. It was probably the longest flight I made. Since there was no direct flight from Tashkent to Hyderabad, I had to fly through New Delhi. So I had to spend hours spinning around at New Delhi International Airport named Indira Gandi. This is perhaps one of the largest airports in the world. And its Duty free is too big. The return flight was exactly the same via New Delhi. I was very afraid about the Covid-19. But fortunately and by the precautions I took, virus didn't touch me. I'm at home for 36 days now. Be careful. Stay home while the virus is walking.

I think duty free should be only in airport. I have never seen a duty free on a plane. Can you please explain this? Thanks in advance.

Hello Idenizoz

I'm not sure how common it is, but I've seen people buying things duty free on transatlantic flights many times.

All the best

Hey! Hanna nice to be here to learn English vocab with you guys. I want to share that the longest flight I've ever taken when I had a business trip from Hanoi to Toronto. The flight lasted nearly 24 hours. This is not a direct flight. If my mind serves me well, I think that I had a transition in Taipei in about 5 hours. Despite the longest flight, what a pity that I just had 4 days there. It was a very short time, but brought me a lot of beautiful memories about the friendly and warmest manner of Canadian. as well as the beauty of the city. Hopefully that I will come back there in one day soon in the future. Thank you for your reading my sharing. Best, Hanna
