Whether it’s an overseas trip or a day trip/adventure, these tips will make your life easier while on the road:
Tip #1: Make Copies. Ever lost your ID, passport or credit cards. I have.. All of it, while in Washington, D.C! It was a nightmare, but if I had made copies of at least my ID, my return flight would have been less of a headache… Can you imagine at the airline counter explaining that your ID has been stolen and that you are who you say you are? No fun! Make copies: take a set with you that you will leave at your hotel and another one at home.
Tip #2: Tell Someone! Leave a copy of your trip itinerary with trusted friend or family member. Include everything from location, phone numbers and the time you are supposed to leave and return.
Tip #3: Confirm! Delays and cancellations happen, call a day in advance to confirm your trip/adventure.
Tip #8: Leave Your Valuable at Home! I understand that we want to be cute, however, whether it’s a ziplining day trip or an international trip, leave your jewelry and other valuables at home… You will not need them anyways!
