100 Ways to Travel Better: Your tips
Tips from a Traveling Consultant
- Jamescia, CNN iReport producer
A few months ago, I started a job that takes me to the road. Here are few things I’ve learned.
1. Always bring a book or some sort of reading material
Sure, Game of Thrones might take up half of your carry on because it’s so big, but think twice before leaving it at home. I made this mistake recently and ended up getting stuck at the airport for more than 8 hours due to flight delays and cancellations. That book would have come in handy.
2. Integrate your normal routine
If you do yoga on Monday, climb on Tuesday, run on Fridays in your normal routine – who says you can’t do the same while on travel? Plus, chances are - you’ll meet some random folks while doing so.
3. Go to the grocery store/bring snacks
Eating out for every meal could be dangerous to your waistline. Check to see if there’s a grocery store near your hotel – replace breakfast with yogurt, fruit and granola bars.
4. Dry Cleaning Bags are multi-purpose
The hotel often leaves dry-cleaning bags in the closet. I find that these are great for separating dirty/work-out clothes from the rest of suitcase when coming home.
5. Bring a water bottle
You can fill it up after airport security at a water fountain, and take it with you wherever you go during your travels. Not only does this save you from dehydration, buying the $4 waters from the airport, but it’s also economically friendly.
Hope you will find these tips helpful the next time you take flight. Good luck and safe travels!
