Travel Tips

(Katie)

I am going to be traveling over the next two and a half weeks (keep an eye out for photos on our Instagram account) so Annie and I thought we would share some of our travel tips.

Essentials for your trip

  • Adaptors for international travel
  • Currency for international travel
  • Passport or ID Card
  • Call your Credit card company to let them know that you are going on a trip because they can stop your card thinking it’s a fraudulent charge (international travel).
  • Call your phone company to see what plans they have for international travel.
  • Print any tour information you have signed up for
  • Make a copy of your passport or ID and credit cards in case of emergency.
  • Put a hold on your mail
  • Camera
  • Addresses of your destinations

Packing Tips

  • Pack light
  • Bring comfortable walking shoes
  • Plastic bags for laundry
  • Phone chargers
  • Never forget an umbrella, been there not fun
  • Pack for the weather (if summer – you might want to take your sunscreen and sunglasses with you)
  • Hygiene products
  • Pack accordingly to your trip (active or not so much)
  • Pack medications if needed

Tips for the Plane

  • Reading material
  • Light layer because the plane is always chilly and they can run out of blankets
  • Sleep mask
  • Snacks
  • Maybe a neck pillow
  • Change of clothes (you never know if your baggage gets lost)
  • Headphones
  • Chargers
  • Empty water bottle
  • Wipes or hand sanitizers 

Once you’re at your location(s)

  • Put important documents in the safe in your hotel room
  • Always be aware of your surroundings
  • Use dream water or natural sleep aids to help with jet lag
  • Know some basic etiquette about the country you’re traveling to

Last but not least have a great time!

Katie & Annie
