Strange and curious situations have happened to all of us on planes, but what Tom encountered on his flight to Bali was worth a video on TikTok that went viral.
Traveling by plane can be stressful and scary. Often because it's your first time traveling and you don't really know where to go once you arrive at the airport, or what the procedure is. Other times, because of changes in regulations upon arrival at the airport, or because you are not sufficiently prepared or don't have enough time to wait in the check-in, security and boarding lines.
However, once the formalities are completed and the plane is boarded, one imagines that everything will be calmer and that one will start to relax and not worry anymore until one arrives at the chosen destination. However, it is not uncommon to encounter strange situations, such as the fact that the seat you have been assigned does not exist or that you have a very peculiar neighbor next to you.
This is exactly what happened to Tom, a Dutch tiktoker and travel blogger by professionwho has traveled to 154 of the 197 countries in the world so far. Moreover, as he himself states on his TikTok account, he has been traveling for 3,878 days, or a little over 10 years. A globetrotter in every sense of the word.
For this reason, he is more than accustomed to seeing strange, curious and even funny situations, such as the one he recently experienced on the plane that was taking him to Bali (Indonesia). In a video of just seven seconds, he shows a passenger doing yoga, either to stretch or to relax during the flight.

“This is the first time I've seen someone do yoga during the flight. She was already feeling the Bali vibes in the air” , wrote the tiktoker in the caption of his post, which quickly went viral and has over 12 million views and 173,000 likes since he shared it on social media.
“This is the first time I've seen someone do yoga poses during a flight,” Tom added.
The message received many comments. One said, “Namaste,” while another commented, “He is in a very high trance state.” Other users shared their own experiences. “I could see a girl doing ballet stretching exercises next to me” , while another explained that “pregnant, I had to do my stretches, but everyone helped me” .
I was an intern at the editorial office. When I saw their ad for a freelancer, I decided to come back. I'm a fan of series and movies, I spend my weekends at the cinema and my nights in front of Netflix
