If you’re a frequent flyer, you know the importance of a good eye mask. Red-eye and long-haul flights will often offer them in airline travel kits, but finding the perfect eye mask to carry with you is a worthwhile undertaking. After split-testing over a dozen different eye masks, here are the three I recommend for long flights.

 

Cotton Sleep Eye Mask

Recently launched in 2018, the Cotton Sleep Eye Mask was made for comfort and flexibility for every head size. The hand-made mask is made from five layers of breathable cotton fabric, creating a luxuriously soft feel. A triangle wing over the nose stops the mask from moving and blocks out more light, so you’ll wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed. $13.99

 

3D Sleep Mask

The 3D Sleep Mask is large and in charge, and blocks 100 percent of light with soft polyester fabric to create an absolutely dark sleep zone. The eye space is wider and deeper than most masks, so it takes up a significant portion of your face. If you’re trying to look cute while you snooze, this mask is not for you. The mask includes two air vents on both edges of the eye mask that allows healthy oxygen in while keeping dry air out. $13.99

 

Unimi Sleep Mask

This the best of the bunch, and surprisingly the least expensive. The Unimi Sleep Mask is like a Tempurpedic mattress for your eyeballs. The memory foam material is deeper and longer than traditional masks, which gives your eyes and eyelids breathing room and doesn’t put any pressure on them. The mask contains two layers: low-rebound memory foam and elastic polyester so that even in the brightest light you will be in complete darkness while wearing the mask. $9.69

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Museums in Italy

While there are about as many museums in Italy as pieces of art, there are more than a few you should add to your must-see list ahead of your next (or first!) trip. Work your way through the country’s rich history in the arts with this list of suggestions.
