Travel Tip Tuesday! Get the kids in on saving up for a trip together; have them earn money with good behavior or good grades. They’ll appreciate their vacation that much more knowing they helped earn it.
Get cozy! Don't forget to bring some of your more comfortable items for a long plane ride. Cozy sweaters and fuzzy socks can make all the difference on a cold plane!
Every nook and cranny counts! So look for underutilized space, like the insides of shoes, for small essentials like headphones or change purses.
Be adventurous and try new food! If you are afraid to try new things, you might miss out on some unusual and tasty local cuisine.
If you're flying with an infant under two, you may be able to fly them for free if they're not going to be in their own seat. There may be additional requirements for boarding with your infant, though, like a birth certificate to validate their age, so be sure to check with the specific airline that you'll be using.
Packing Tip: Roll your clothing to pack more outfit options and avoid unwanted wrinkles!
Travel Tip Tuesday: Instead of hauling around your own portable library, consider bringing a tablet and downloading a few of your favorite books to enjoy on your next trip!
Packing Tip: Never check your essentials. It's important to keep your valuable and essential belongings in your carry-on bag, not in your checked luggage in the off chance your luggage goes missing. Your passport, identification, money, credit cards, jewelry, electronics, and other valuables should always be brought onto the plane with you.
Keep your clothes smelling fresh when you travel by adding a dryer sheet into your bag or a piece of felt with a few drops of your favorite essential oils – just be careful not to get the oil on your clothes. If you have a closet where you’re staying, you can also hang up an air freshener or bag of dried lavender.
Keep a travel toiletry bag packed with travel sized items separate from your day-to-day toiletries and work on getting it stocked with travel-sized items. Going to the dentist? Grab that cute little toothpaste tube and add it to your travel bag. Did you get a sample size of your favorite makeup, skincare, or hair care product? Into the bag it goes! You’ll be able to save time packing for your next trip and know you have everything you need.
Travel Tip Tuesday: Learn basic phrases in the native language of your destination.
You don’t need to master the language but learning a few things like “Hello,” “Goodbye,” “Thank you!”, “Where’s the bathroom?” will go a long way!
Try to resist the last minute urge to pack extras. Allow a few extra minutes before you leave to edit what you've put in your bag. Challenge yourself to take at least three non-essential items out!
Travel Tip: The importance of snacks can never be underestimated. When you can, be sure to have snacks on hand in your travels just in case. Something easy to carry and high in protein like nuts are a great option. You'll appreciate your surrounding beauty so much more when you're not distracted by a growling stomach!
Packing tip: Learn from your past mistakes! Take stock of your bag after your next trip. What did you bring that you never used? What did you wish you had while you were on your trip? Keep those in mind for your next trip.
Get creative with repurposing items you'll be bringing anyway! Do you carry a glasses case with you to put your glasses in at night? Use it to carry your cords in your bag while your glasses are still on your face.
