Traveling? Tips for Packing
Vacations are relaxing, enjoyable, and something that everyone looks forward to. The travel, itself, is sometimes stressful though. Booking travel plans and getting on the plane are things that leave plenty of room for error. These tips will help make your vacation less stressful.
Once you know where you are going, put in some time to learn your destination. Find a good map of your destination, and take some time to learn about the geography and the main attractions. Memorizing a bit about your environment will make it that much easier to navigate when you arrive.
Create a list of what needs to be packed. Start as soon as you can before your trip, that way you can add your must-have items to the list as you think of them. 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.
Purchase tickets online for any attraction you may be visiting. There is generally a fee associated with an online ticket purchase. However, it is a small one, and the trade off for skipping long ticket lines is a big advantage. Not only that, you may be able to skip the lines for entry as well.
Join travel websites to help you get the most out of your next trip. Having an online community of travelers with whom to socialize and share experiences is a great way to get prepared for your trip. This will put you in a group of people who share similar experiences.
The stark views offered by a desert have their own unique beauty, and you will enjoy experiencing their exotic flora and fauna. A visit to the desert is a breathtaking event, particularly for those who have never made one before, and is something that should not be missed.
Do your best to avoid traveling during rush hour when you are driving. If it’s not possible to avoid rush hour, take a break during that time. It can be a good time to get something to eat or to just let the kids get out and run around for a bit.
If you are planning a trip with young children, pack a cookie sheet or two. Use these to level coloring books or playing cards for the children. For smaller kids, teach them a thing or two by having them use magnetic numbers and letters on them.
If you’re leaving your car at the airport while you’re away, reserve your spot in advance if possible. If you wait to book a parking spot on the day you need it, it will generally be way more expensive. Make sure, though, to compare the cost of long-term parking to the cost of taking a cab to the airport.

I can watch my world traveling daughter, Rachel and Jamison, and try as I might I cannot duplicate her packing skills. I guarantee you, however, that the cookie sheet thing is a new one and I will be passing it along to show her how well read I am on the topic of packing after reading your post. I promise to give you credit. Many thanks for another great one!
