Travelling can be stressful – especially for unseasoned travelers. There are a million things that can go wrong. I’ve seen it happen to fellow travelers all the time. Some forget to bring their tickets. Some arrive too late and are unable to check-in. Some miss their flights altogether. Are you thinking of traveling someplace? Then let me give you some tips on how to travel with ease.
First, list down everything you need to bring. There are people who just randomly throw stuff into their suitcases and call that “packing”. But if you don’t want to forget important items it is better to sit down and make a list of everything you have packed. This way there will be a lesser chance of you forgetting anything.
Second, pack light. Yes. If you want to make your life easier don’t bring too much stuff. That way you will have less baggage to carry around. Minimize the number of bags. It is better to bring one big bag than two small ones. If you can fit everything into one bag then do so.
Arrive early at the airport
Third, arrive early at the airport. The standard is to arrive at least two hours before your flight. It is always a good idea to arrive early because in case problems arise you will have sufficient time to fix them. Also, some countries have very strict regulations when it comes to traveling. It may take you a while to check-in. So do yourself a favor and arrive early.
Don’t keep sharp objects and fluids
Fourth, don’t keep sharp objects and fluids in your bag. Most airports have strict policies regarding safety. For this reason, they don’t permit the carrying of sharp objects and fluids above 100ml. Even umbrellas are not allowed. It would be best to leave things like these inside your travel bag – the one that you have to check-in. Otherwise, you would have to leave them behind.
Wear comfortable travel clothes
Fifth, wear comfortable travel clothes. Some airports are humongous. You might have to walk around a bit to get from one point to the next. So wear something you are comfortable in. Stilettos and micro minis are great for clubbing but not for traveling. Put those types of outfits aside and wear comfy loafers and jeans.
Travelling can be fun or it can be a nightmare. So which will it be? That’s up to you.
