Phew! What a crazy few months it’s been for travel: Niagara-on-the-Lake, Tremblant, Punta Cana, Quebec City, Grey County, New York City, Chicago, Algonquin Park and more. From #familytravel and #romanticescapes to #girlfriendgetaways and #soloadventures, I can’t believe how much ground I’ve covered in such a short time.
I get a lot of requests for travel tips, so I thought I’d share a just a few:
1️⃣Don’t wait to travel. Life’s too short.
2️⃣Create a loose itinerary ahead of time; lock down reservations in advance for attractions or restaurants that have notorious lines or wait lists.
3️⃣Save room for spontaneity.
4️⃣PACK LIGHTLY. I promise you can travel for up to two weeks in only carry-on if you pack in outfits. (No, you don’t need all those shoes).
5️⃣If you’re going somewhere a foreign language is spoken, learn a few key words and phrases.
6️⃣Use a great travel-friendly credit card for everything — flights, hotels, activities, restaurants. It’s so much safer than carrying around wads of cash! And aside from racking up lots of points that you can use down the road for MORE travel, my World Elite @mastercardca ensures I’m protected with insurance that includes medical, cancellation, lost or delayed baggage and even hotel theft and car rental collision coverage (note that card benefits vary by issuer).
7️⃣If you’re flying as a pair, book an aisle and window seat and hope no one takes the middle seat between. BOOM! You score a whole row to yourselves.
8️⃣Help prevent jet-lag by drinking at least 8 oz. of water for every hour you’re in the air, avoiding naps when you land and jumping right into the local time zone (caffeine may be required!).
9️⃣Be respectful of local customs, clothing and etiquette.
🔟Ask for upgrades — very, very nicely. The worst anyone will tell you is “no.”
