Be prepared when traveling. Here are a few tips to make sure your trip is enjoyable and memorable.
Take a jacket. Airplanes, restaurants, and many inside attractions get cold. And remember nights get chilly.
Always have an extra USB charger. Batteries die. Your good mood shouldn’t.
Take pictures of your luggage and clothes. If your bag gets lost, this will help identify it more easily and speed up the process of having your travel insurance reimburse you.
Get travel insurance. Travel insurance is the most important thing you get that you never want to use. It’s better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. It will be there if you get robbed, flights get cancelled, you get sick or injured, or have to be sent home. It’s comprehensive and, for just a few dollars a day, one of the best investments you can get for a trip.
Take photos of and with people. True memories are what we are going for here. Lots of photos. Years from now, you’ll want to look back on those photos and the memories you made with the people who made them memorable.
Pack light - It’s OK to wear the same t-shirt a few days in a row. Take half the clothes you think you will need…you won’t need as much as you think. Roll each piece of clothing to keep it as light as possible. Write down a list of essentials, cut it in half, and then only pack that!
Always pack a towel - You never know when you will need it, whether it’s at the beach, on a picnic, or just to dry off. While many hotels offer towels, you never know and carrying a small towel won’t add that much weight to your bag.
But take extra socks and underwear - Mama always said to pack extras because you never know if your trip is extended or you get stranded. I only take a few more than I need. Nothing beats a fresh pair of socks or underwear!
Always get behind business travelers when in security lines - They move fast since they are usually in a rush and travel light. They know the drill. Line up behind them as much as possible. You’ll speed through the line!
Never get behind families - They take forever. It’s not their fault. They just have a lot of stuff because of the kids. Try to avoid getting in lines with lots of kids. It’s going to take awhile.
