Little things matter quite a bit when going on a trip. The ideas in this piece can give you the sort of trip you truly want.
Create a list of what needs to be packed. Between one week and three months before you leave for a trip, sit down and write down every item you are going to take with you. Even last minute packing won’t be as stressful, when you have a list to reference. It will also take the panic out of forgetting anything.
Bring a doorstop to your hotel room. These handy little wooden or rubber wedges are usually used to hold doors open but they can just as easily be used to hold doors closed.
Always research before booking travel. Seek websites that offer actual traveler reviews of your desired destinations. See if you can talk to folks who have already traveled to such locales. Research will ensure you don’t end up in over your head.
Take a look at the alarm clock in your room upon arrival. You never know what the person who was staying there last might have had it set to. Turn off the alarm or set it to the time you want it on.
As you search for an inexpensive flight, go to the website for every airline that heads out to your chosen destination. Yes, there are other sites that have cheap flights, but you are doing yourself a disservice by skipping the airline websites.
It isn’t always possible to get accommodations at the best places, and sometimes you end up at the worst places. If the area seems a bit shady, make sure you take along a rubber doorstop. In addition to locking and chaining your door, you can wedge the doorstop under the door for an extra measure of safety. Intruders won’t just have to break the lock and chain, they will have to get past rubber firmly wedged beneath the door.
As mentioned before, no matter the scope of your journey, following a few key tips really can make all the difference. Use the advice found above, and your trip can be a true joy.
