843 Funny, Insightful and Silly Road Trip Questions!

Car on a road trip with feet hanging out the window

I love a good road trip! My wife and kids and I love getting out on the open road whether we are only going an hour away or traveling for several days. And we have some good conversations in the car. Especially now that our kids are teenagers and always seem to be coming and going places when we are back at home.

We wanted a list of questions we could come back to time and time again, and we kept having to find different websites for new questions. So I went and grabbed some of my favorites and thought of a bunch more and made this huge list of questions so we could just bookmark it on our phones and come back to it time after time. 

One way to do that is to save this page to your home screen on your cell phone. Below is how to do that on iPhone and Android devices.

For iPhone or IOS

Some of these are deep and others are funny and absurd and some of them are fantastic road trip conversation starters. I hope you enjoy them as much as our family has. Sometimes my wife and I break them out on date night and go through them as a couple.

Try them out during:

  • First dates
  • Family gatherings
  • Getting to know someone
  • Around the campfire, while camping
  • On a flight, bus or other public transportation
  • Game night
  • Messaging on a dating site or dating app
  • Texting your friends or a romantic interest
  • A holiday party
  • A coworker
  • Work parties
  • Dinner with your family or friends

You get the idea. Let’s get on with it.

26 Of The Most Popular Travel Destinations For Americans (and loads of things to do!)

Other cultures travel much more outside their own countries than Americans do, but that is changing. While just 4% of Americans owned a passport 30 years ago, as of 2020 it was over 44%.

Whether it’s a week in Australia, a cruise ship through the Caribbean, or a tour of France and Italy, Americans are getting out more now than ever before.

There are a few different reasons for this, not the least of which has been the extreme popularity of social media and its bringing visibility to remote locations around the globe.

If you are looking for some great ideas for your next trip, here are 30 of the most traveled to destinations by Americans.

The Bahamas

The Bahamas is a popular destination for tourism and American tourists because it does not have extreme seasons. The country also has beautiful beaches, delicious food, and crystal clear water.

Last year I went to The Bahamas. The islands have a tropical climate which is perfect for vacationing. I also got to go snorkeling with some dolphins, which were both exciting and fascinating to observe beneath the water. The food there is also really good, so I recommend going to find local restaurants away from your report a few times during your stay.

The Bahamas contains hundreds of islands and cays, the largest being New Providence where Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas, is located. Many of these islands are inhabited or have been rehabilitated for agriculture, mining and timber production as well as tourism development. Tourism dominates The Bahamas’ economy, generating more than 60% of the GDP.

Tokyo is one of the world’s largest cities and is a fascinating place to explore – from traditional sights like Asakusa to modern attractions like Shinjuku, Roppongi Hills or even Odaiba!

It’s a big city that feels like several smaller cities all rolled into one – every neighborhood has its own character and stores selling food from that area. It can be overwhelming to visit for the first time if you aren’t used to big cities because there’s so much going on. It’s a fascinating place.

Tokyo Tower stands 333 meters tall and has an observation deck that you can visit if you want to get the best view of the city.

And speaking of views, why not travel by shinkansen (bullet train) between cities? It will give you great opportunities to take pictures of Japan’s beautiful countryside too.

You can visit the Lake Ashi area, which was featured in The World of Suzie Wong, enjoy sakura (cherry blossoms) in April and May at Yoshinoyama Park, see geishas (geisha) strolling through Gion district, or eat tatami ochazuke (porridge with tea poured over the top). Takayama is also well-known for its beef cattle.

Japan’s cuisine is also among the most sophisticated and varied on earth. You can have sushi rolls made from raw fish or tempura-coated vegetables. For a dessert, you could try mitarashi dango, which are little balls of rice flour served on skewers with a sweet soy sauce.

Many famous buildings are found in Japan, like Tokyo’s modern housing district of Odaiba or Hiroshima’s Hiroshima Peace Memorial. Osaka Castle is another famous place to visit; it was built in 1583!

Aruba is an island in the Caribbean sea, just off the coast of Venezuela. It’s a small island in the Caribbean. It has a population of just under 100,000 people.

It was previously a part of the Netherlands Antilles country.

Aruba’s natural beauty is unparalleled. There are over 250 miles of unspoiled beaches surrounded by palm trees and turquoise water.

The country also has lots of great restaurants, tours, and hotels to spend your nights at if you run out of things to do during the day.

The people are welcoming and it’s a great place for families with young children as well as romantic getaways for couples.

One thing that I really enjoy about Aruba is that they boast some of the world’s most incredible beaches. The beaches of Aruba are some of the whitest and most beautiful that you’ll find anywhere else on earth. There are more than 150 different beaches to choose from all over the island!

In terms of food, there’s no shortage to enjoy!

I’ve stayed at the Crane Beach condo in Aruba. It’s on the beach and has a view of the ocean. I also really liked staying at the Divi Aruba resort.

The third-place I liked was called Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort by the sea. It’s on the West Coast of Aruba with a great stretch of white sand beaches. There’s also a small golf course, too.

Switzerland

Switzerland also has many outdoor activities that will keep you busy during your visit. You can go hunting or fishing in places like Switzerland without any worry that it is against any laws.

Switzerland is home to 6 of Europe’s 7 natural lakes. There are 83 Swiss lakes in total. The Alps form the border with Italy to the south, France to the west and Germany to the northeast.

The country’s highest point is Dufourspitze at 4,634 meters (15,203 feet). Many other high mountains throughout Switzerland attract hikers and skiers as well.

The only landlocked country in Western Europe is also known for its banking system because it has not nationalized its banks. It has one of the world’s most powerful economies and one of the six original G8 members. It’s called a globalization powerhouse due to foreign direct investment and exports, generating $1.7 trillion of output.

Switzerland is a great place to visit and learn about its history. Rackhofen Castle ruins date back to the 14th century and there are many museums throughout the country, including Musee des Beaux-Arts at Art Association in Lausanne that has works from Monet, Pissarro and Renoir.

One of the most popular things to do in Switzerland is skiing. The Alps are the perfect place for skiing because the mountain peaks are at different elevations which means that there are different slopes for beginners, intermediates, professionals, and experts.

You can go hiking in Switzerland. Some amazing views await you during your hike. You can take a train or walk through an old mining town like Montreux. The rail station there is located right near the town which makes it convenient for hikers to stop off for lunch or dinner before their long hike back up the mountain.

Switzerland also has castles! One of the most famous ones is Chillon Castle. You might recognize it from Lord Byron’s poem “Prisoner of Chillon”. It is located on Lake Geneva and has been standing for over 1000 years! It’s a great place to visit if you want to get a taste of Switzerland’s rich history.

Some really great places in Switzerland that I think you should visit include:

Zurich – This city offers a wide selection of cultural and historical attractions. You will be able to explore past and present cultures, enjoy delicious cuisine, discover incredible art, or attend an opera. It’s the perfect place for an all-around cultural experience.

Zermatt – This small village is a haven for hikers and mountain climbers. You can enjoy unparalleled views of the Matterhorn, weather permitting! I love Zermatt’s picturesque atmosphere.

Lucerne – This beautiful city provides endless opportunities to explore culture and history. The wooden clock tower offers panoramic views of the city–incredible during sunrise or sunset.

Geneva – If seeing the city from the water is your thing then this is the place for you. Experience incredible views of Geneva’s famous Jet d’Eau while cruising along Lake Geneva.

Bern – Bern has won itself a reputation as being one of Europe’s most picturesque towns. Whether you are interested in architecture, shopping or just exploring the town on foot, Bern will not disappoint!

Hopefully, this has given you lots of ideas on what you can do when planning your next trip to Switzerland.

Israel

Israel is a very popular travel destination for people of all faiths. It would be wise to learn about the culture beforehand, but it is an incredibly welcoming place.

Israel is known for being an innovative country that combines modern life with traditional values that are still prevalent in many parts of the world.

Israel’s diverse landscapes have something for everyone no matter what they are looking for. There are mountains, deserts, beaches, and forests.

Israel is a very interesting place for many reasons. First and foremost, it’s the birthplace of Judaism. It’s also bordered by Jordan and Syria which adds to the excitement of your visit there. You can go to Jerusalem, Masada or Tel Aviv depending on what you want from your trip.

The idea of going in person to learn more about Jerusalem – the city of gold where many people believe that Jesus walked – is on so many people’s bucket lists.

It’s also one of the oldest cities in the world and has a lot of history behind it. You’ll find tons of biblical sites to visit, especially around the Western Wall.

We all know Masada for killing off all their married men to prevent them from being defeated by the Romans. It’s also an ancient city that was built by King Herod around 30 BC. Check it out if you’re interested in ancient architecture or military conflicts.

You can’t go to Israel without visiting Tel Aviv, although this is one of the youngest cities in the world – founded in 1909! That doesn’t mean it’s not exciting or interesting – there are tons of great beaches to enjoy and you’ll find a lot of young people out and about.

Hiking in the Mediterranean Hills is something that I would recommend to anyone who goes to Israel.

There are so many hikes around, all you have to do is look it up on the internet or talk to somebody about your interests. One of my favorite hikes is in Sharon National Park where you can see the Sharon Coastal Plain while walking on a trail.

Another favorite hike of mine is in Mitzpe Ramon where you can see deserts, mountains, and the Dead Sea while walking on an easy trail.

Jerusalem has a lot to offer any tourist. Not only is it one of the holiest cities in the world, but it also contains amazing art all over the place! My favorite place to go for art is the Israel Museum which has an enormous collection of Biblical Art and artifacts.

Another great activity is taking a guided tour around Yemin Moshe, which was built by a wealthy Arab-Jew who lived in Jerusalem.

One thing that I’ve always wanted to do is take a tour of the Dead Sea and float in it. The Dead Sea is also really salty and apparently, there are actual health benefits to floating in salty water for a long time.

Another thing I wanted to do while visiting Israel was hiking, but I ended up going on a car ride instead. I got this feeling that the landscapes were lush and full of life because it wasn’t too hot or cold when I went.

And of course, you should visit the Western Wall, which is an ancient wall in Jerusalem.

The Western Wall, also known as the “Wailing Wall”, is one of the most sacred sites for the Jewish people in the world. It forms the western support wall to the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is visited and recited by tens of thousands every year to worship and pray there.

There are so many reasons to visit Isreal. I have just covered a few of them.

Dominican Republic

It’s easy to see why the Dominican Republic is a popular travel destination for Americans. Below are a few of my favorite things about the DR.

1. The weather is perfect all year long – in the dead of winter daytime temperatures hover around 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius), which means you can have a nice beach vacation any time of the year.

2. There are more than 2,000 miles of stunning coastline to explore, including world-class resorts and luxury homes just minutes from the ocean.

3. You’ll experience delicious cuisine at every turn – restaurants in Santo Domingo offer popular dishes like mofongo, fried plantains, and heaping piles of seafood paella while peppering menus with Spanish imports like morcilla (blood sausage), and bacalao (salt cod).

The Dominican Republic has a rich cultural heritage, going back to the pre-Columbian era with its history as a European colony.

The Dominican Republic has been visited by pirates, conquistadors, New World explorers, traders from Europe and Asia, and naval expeditions from Europe during its long colonial period.

The culture in this country is very artistic because of the rich history of the Caribbean.

The best time of year to visit the DR is during their dry season, which typically lasts from December through April, or June through November. This is perfect if you are looking for sunny days with less rain!

Some of the country’s best hotels in the Dominican Republic are located right on one of its many beaches! The all-inclusives offer a great escape from the rush and bustle of American life. You will have your own personal staff that will take care of everything while you relax by their pool or enjoy a drink at the bar!

If you’re looking for a unique destination, the Dominican Republic may be the perfect place for you. It’s very safe and hospitable.

It’s nice as well because it feels smaller and more exclusive and you can go to those places without feeling like there are going to be tons of people. The Dominican Republic gets fewer tourists than other places in the Caribbean – it’s really nice because, depending on where you spend your time, you can feel like you have this beautiful destination to yourself.

If you are looking for a tropical paradise make sure you get out to Phuket, Thailand and/or the Phi Phi islands.

How To Avoid Jet Lag Flying To Europe – (All You Need to Know!)

How To Avoid Jet Lag Flying To Europe – (All You Need to Know!)

people waling in the evening sun in a European market

Jet lag is a drag! It can be anything from a mild nuisance to a fairly uncomfortable and painful experience that reduces the time you can enjoy yourself on your European vacation!

My wife’s father lives in Spain. She grew up in England. Needless to say, we fly to Europe a lot.

What I am about to share with you are all super helpful in avoiding a painful jet lag experience whether you are flying across multiple time zones to France or Spain or anywhere in Europe.

I can tell you from experience they work, and work well. They have been proven by the medical community and fellow travelers as well to help your body adjust as quickly as possible to your destination time zone. Use the ones that you think will work best for you. Make sure you read to the end. I have included tips all the way through.

But let’s jump right in and help you avoid jet lag when flying to Europe!

Be intentional before your trip to avoid or minimize jet lag and its effects

The best way to avoid jet lag is to make a plan ahead of time utilizing the tools below and make sure to implement that plan before your trip begins to help transition your body’s circadian rhythms as quickly as possible.

Most people will find selecting a few of the following tips to be much more than adequate in helping them reduce and minimize the effects or avoid jet lag altogether.

Before Your Flight

Carefully select your arrival time

Book your tickets so that you arrive at your destination in the evening.

Traveling can be very tiring, but if you force yourself to stay awake as much as possible, when you arrive in the evening you will be tired enough to go to sleep at your new local time.

I have found this extremely helpful when flying to Europe or anywhere for that matter. It will give you a good jumpstart to your new vacation schedule.

I have also not followed this advice and arrived during the day and then tried to stay awake until bedtime and I was exhausted and tired and miserable.

My wife actually got some fun shots of me on the tube in London asleep with my mouth open shoulder to shoulder with fellow riders.

I have much preferred the trips where I have flown into town in the evenings and then after a quick meal, I’ve been able to go to sleep.

Start shifting your schedule and internal clock before your go

Ideally, you will do this about a week before you leave, but at least do it for a couple of days before you go.

Adjust a couple of your clocks, phone, or watch to your destination’s local time. Then make sure that you look at it/them at least a couple of times a day, reminding yourself what time of day it will be in your new location at that time.

Additionally, adjust the time you retire to bed and the time you wake up by as much as you are comfortable with, in greater increments each day leading up to your trip.

Even if you are not ready to fall asleep, put on some calm soothing music take a long hot shower or bath and sit quietly in your bed without electronics and read a book, think, meditate or ponder on the vacation you have coming up o quiet your body and mind.

Even if your body isn’t tired enough to fall asleep early, if you start to get it into a new rhythm before your trip it will make it easier to adjust when you get there.

Also, waking earlier in the day (closer to your destination’s timezone) will help your body feel more tired in the evening as well. This will make it easier to start going to bed earlier.

If you start changing your clocks and your bed and waking times before your trip there will be less of a difference to adjust to at your vacation destinations.

Apps are another way to start adjusting your schedule.

There will be a range of mobile apps released today to aid travelers in reducing their jet lag.

Enter your airline details in either Timeshifter or Entrain ((links)) for a calendar of when to sleep and get up as well as other suggestions about when to avoid stimulants or when to get sunlight, morning light, an early night’s sleep or take sleeping aids. They’re pretty slick.

Shifting your schedule like this will help a lot more than you may imagine.

Other ways to assist in shifting your internal clock

Also as you get your body used to what will be your new schedule, you may want to look into specific things that will either help you sleep (when you are going to bed earlier) or help you wake up.

Melatonin or Sleep Aids

Melatonin is a naturally occurring chemical in your body that contributes to the maintenance of the nervous system as well as your body’s internal sleep rhythms. Melatonin has been shown to reduce jetlag in studies as well.

One distinct advantage melatonin has over sleeping pills is in addition to helping you sleep, it helps regulate your body’s natural circadian rhythm.

Other sleeping medications do help you get some sleep but they are harsher on your body. They may help you sleep but aren’t able to help change your body’s circadian rhythm or internal clock.

Take care. Using any sleep aid including sleeping pills can increase the risk of falling asleep or of injuries due to drowsiness.

It would be good to discuss the advantages and risks of your situation or your use of melatonin and other sleep medicines with your doctor prior to your trip.

I find it useful from time to time to use melatonin from time to time to nudge my body’s internal clock.

For melatonin, there is no recommended daily allowance. For sleep-related problems, some experts recommend taking melatonin supplements in dosages ranging from 0.5 to 5 milligrams. Drowsiness during the day may be experienced at higher doses.

There is research available that shows these nine foods have beneficial effects on either melatonin or your body’s ability to sleep:

Warm milk

Fish

Goji berries

Bananas

Toast – one of my favorites

Eggs

Nuts

Cherries – actually have melatonin in them

A good whole grain oatmeal (not instant)

Use light

Additionally, you can use light stimulation or bright light exposure to assist your body and waking up early. This can be done either naturally with the morning or evening light (which is ideal) or in artificial ways.

Natural light

As soon as the sun rises in the morning sit in a sunny window or go for a walk and get as much of your bare skin in the sun as possible as your body will react to it and wake up. It is especially helpful to reduce jet lag symptoms get your face in the sun.

Artificial light

If you are up before the sun or if it is a time of year that the sun rises later, artificial lights can assist. Try turning on all of the lights in your home in the room or two surrounding you so you can get as much bright light as possible. Or you can get light therapy glasses or a light that is typically used for seasonal affective disorder.

Exercise

Another trick is to exercise right when you wake up to get the body going. As you get your respiratory circulatory and other systems in your body going it will wake up and assist in shifting your internal clock for the better.

Shift the baby’s schedule too

No, the kids don’t need to be doing exercise with you, but if you have little ones, help them start adjusting their wake and bedtimes. You can make a bit of a game of it, or go have a little adventure like going to McDonald’s drive-through for ice cream at 4 in the morning. You’ll create some fun memories doing it as well.

One note with children, don’t start them a week out. Just do this one or two days before your trip.

And if you have little babies make sure to adjust their nap times in advance as well.

What foods prevent jet lag?

There are a number of simple things you can adjust in your diet as well that will help you adjust your body clock to a new timezone quickly and easily whether it is before or during your trip.

Try to avoid fatty proteins since they will drain your energy and make you drowsy. Stick to leaner meats like fish or chicken. One of the most substantial things you can do to counter jet lag is hydrate yourself, so foods like cucumbers, celery, strawberries and watermelon are great for their water content.

Eat less salty or heavy foods, or foods you know weigh you down or make you feel rundown before traveling. Keep hydrated with more fresh fruits and vegetables. Eating light foods and not rich foods are the best to beat jet lag.

Eating smaller meals before you go and bringing snacks for the plane ride can help keep your stomach feeling good. Complex carbs and other low glycemic index foods are preferred.

Doses of caffeine can be helpful to stay awake and adjust to your new schedule but it also messes with your body’s internal rhythms. It also depletes your body’s hydration levels. Use it sparingly.

Drinking alcohol is used by some as a sleep aid because it makes you feel drowsy but this also negatively impacts your sleep quality. I would suggest you avoid alcohol as much as possible.

Jet lag is also complicated by side effects caused by alcohol, including fatigue, headaches, nausea, and other conditions.

Drink herbal tea

Herbal teas can be wonderful for you, however, instead of drinking other hot teas or coffee. You could drink a mint tea in the morning to wake up or a drinking chamomile tea in the evening to help relax and slow your body down as it gets closer to your bedtime.

Plan some extra days if possible

If you have the ability, to make up for the days that jet lag takes from you at the beginning and the end of your vacation, plan a couple of extra days into your itinerary so you don’t overbook yourself or get stressed and grumpy.

Confession – I find it hard not to be grumpy when I’m tired. Jet lag can be a real buzzkill around our home. Planning a rest day at the beginning of the vacation and an extra day to re-enter is really helpful for me and my family.

So, before you go

I think the best things to do before your flight are to

1 – change a few clocks in your daily routine so that you can start to get used to what time it will be when you land.

2 – start to adjust your sleep schedule and

3 – make sure your flights are booked so that you land towards the evening.

Everything else is supplementary to those three things.

During Your Flight

Use the flight to rest and reset.

When the pilot announces the European time, reset your mind along with your wristwatch.

As soon as you step on that plane start going by your new timezone’s time. you can go into your settings on your phone and manually change the time to your final destinations time. Don’t exacerbate jet lag by reminding yourself of what time it is back home. Be in Europe.

If you can, stay awake till you land. If it is just too long, allow yourself to close your eyes for a bit. You’ll be capable of functioning the day you land if you get a few hours of sleep during the transatlantic trip. But do try your best to stay awake as much as possible till you land.

This is so you will have the best chance of going to sleep in the evening when you arrive.

Keep using whatever tools you have decided to use to stay awake on the flight. Could be sheer willpower (that’s my tool of choice) or a light aid (they work wonders) or a stimulant of some kind (my least favorite)

One common homeopathic remedy is the no-jet-lag.

Always consult your doctor before trying any remedies as some herbs may interact with prescription medication.

The name of the game is to stay awake as much as you can till you get there!

And stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. It helps lubricate dry eyes and many of the other internal systems of your body while it’s dealing with all the changes of altitude, pressure, time changes, lack of sleep and mild stress etc.

After Your Flight

You’ve landed, Now what?

If you do nothing else, not one of the other suggestions I have given to you, stay awake at least until the late afternoon or evening of your first day.

This is why I suggested you plan your tickets so your land at that time. It makes it much much easier to do this.

Sunlight

Get as much sunlight as possible when you land. The sun is your friend and will help keep you awake. Not only that but direct sunlight during the day reduces the production of melatonin in your body, helping you stay awake.

Water

You should also be very attentive in keeping hydrated for several days. The best way to stay asleep is to rest up until the night.

Exercise

You may feel tired, worn out, achy or have a bit of a sick stomach after being on the plane for so long, but if you’ll take the time to go for a walk, rent a bike and pedal around or do some other form of exercise your body will thank you. You will sleep better and recoup from the time change much faster as well.

Day Two

Ok, so you’ve decided what time you wanna wake up on your vacation prior to leaving and now you just need to make yourself wake up at that time the very next day.

By doing this, in combination with some of the other things we’ve talked about here, you will feel much better by day three.

And you’ve made it! For the first couple of nights a couple of mornings, it will seem a little hard but if you stick to it you’ll barely even notice the jet lag after a couple days, and if you do, take confidence knowing it would have been much worse and lasted a lot longer if you hadn’t taken care to implement these tips as you have.

Why Does Jet Lag…?

If you haven’t ever felt jet lag before, the symptoms of jet lag include feeling tired, irritable, inability to sleep, trouble concentrating and sometimes an upset stomach. Some people experience headaches and nausea, too.

It’s a physiological condition that makes you feel tired and out of sync with the world around you.

Jet lag occurs when you travel across multiple time zones. This may happen on a long haul flight to a European country or anywhere really.

The farther you travel the worse you feel

The symptoms of jet lag can last from one day to several depending on how many timezones you cross. The bigger the time difference, the larger the impact on your body.

The farther you travel the more intense the feelings are. It depends also on how you prepare and how diligent you are in shifting to your daily schedule once you get to your destination.

If you consciously stay dedicated to waking and sleeping with your new timezone you will get over it faster. If you don’t and just sleep when you want and wake when you feel like it, it will be harder on your body and take you longer to adjust.

It might seem like a pain to prepare beforehand and really stick to your new schedule, but you will be grate full you did.

Can Jet Lag have long-term effects?

Worse yet, researchers have discovered that for some individuals, constant jet lag induces long-term brain modifications that result in memory and learning difficulties for at least up to a month after returning home.

Typically, jet lag is usually a short-term problem which disappears once the body’s natural clock and circadian rhythm have adjusted to the local time.

Dehydration

Dehydration can lead to symptoms that resemble jet lag. If passengers don’t drink enough water during a flight, they might get dizzy and parched. Even if you feel slightly dehydrated, make sure you get on it quickly and drink water.

In addition to following the suggestions here, if you feel that you have unique circumstances that warrant a trip to your doctor, please make an appointment with them and discuss your concerns.

FAQ

How do you get rid of jet lag fast?

  1. Adjust your schedule to the new time zone as soon as possible.
  2. Stop comparing to your old time zone.
  3. Sleep and wake at your new local time
  4. Use natural light first and other lights as needed
  5. Drink lots of water
  6. Try melatonin and sleep aids as needed
  7. Try caffeinated beverages as needed

What is the best time to fly to avoid jet lag?

The best time to fly to avoid jet lag is in the late afternoon or evening. It’s best to arrive and have enough time to get comfortable where you will be staying and then go to bed near 10 pm in your new local time zone.

Doing this and then making yourself wake up at a reasonable time on your first day will help you get over jet lag much more quickly!

Make sure your sleeping environment is as comfortable as possible. Have a look around and see whether anything may wake you up during your sleep and do your best to eliminate them.

How long does it take for jet lag to go away?

It takes different amounts of time for jet lag to go away. The biggest factor being how many time zones you have crossed and how quick you are to adapt to your new local one.

Many travelers to a new location experience an improvement in their symptoms within the first few days after arrival. For some individuals, it might take up to one week before they feel like themselves again, especially if they have a long flight.

A US Passport Help Guide (With Tips and Examples)

A US Passport Help Guide (With Tips and Examples)

A passport laid open on a table showing all the stamps in it with a camera on the table and some airplane tickets

The purpose of this article is to discuss getting a U.S. passport and respond to some of the questions you have asked about getting them and taking care of them.

If you’re traveling abroad in the next few months and need a passport quickly, then you may wish to consider some expedited methods of acquiring one.

When do I need a passport?

You must have a passport if you’re traveling to other countries. For the most part, it doesn’t matter what your nationality is-so long as you are going to another country. Don’t forget your passport!

And if you don’t think you will need it, bring it anyway as plans may change and if you don’t have it with you, you might regret your inability to go. That happened to me once.

And if you need to there are passport expediting options that can speed up the process of getting your passport too.

What are the different ways to get a U.S. passport?

There are many, but here’s some of the most popular:

Apply From Home: This is probably one of the easiest ways to get your passport because you don’t have to leave home at all! However, it does take time for processing and you must schedule an appointment.

Travel to An Application Center: This is another popular way to get your passport because it doesn’t take a lot of time or effort and you can do it at your convenience. In fact, more than 450 sites are located throughout the country where you can travel and apply for your passport, including local post offices, public libraries and other government centers.

Mail Your Forms: If you’d rather not leave home or make a trip to an application center, then consider mailing in your forms-it doesn’t take too long to process. However, because it does take time to arrive, this isn’t the best option when traveling abroad is a must within the next few days.

Visit a Post Office: Although it’s usually not recommended for those who need their passports quickly (unless things are dire), you can apply at your local post office or pick up a form there if you need one in a hurry. If you opt for this method, then you must be sure to bring the necessary documentation to complete the application process!

Visit a Passport Agency: This is one of the more popular methods for obtaining a passport quickly as it can often produce results within days. In fact, some agencies are open seven days a week for this very reason. The downside is that you must appear in person and there’s usually an appointment-plenty of people are turning to these services when they can’t wait any longer!

Remember, don’t just go with the first passport expediting service you find because some may not be reputable or they may not provide the results promised.

Here are some application options for you: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/how-apply.html

Steps to getting a U.S. passport

Once you’ve obtained your forms, the next step is to fill them out: You must include accurate information because if anything isn’t correct, then your document will need to be returned and this can take quite some time!

The steps you will need to take depend on the way you are applying. I applied for mine at a local post office. It was easy and the staff were very helpful both times I did it. I did it once for myself and then my wife and I went and got our kids’ ones as well.

In addition, once you arrive at the application center, you may be required to provide even more information so the best place to start is by reading through the form carefully to understand what is expected of you.

Once you have all your information collected and filled out, it’s time to apply: You’ll need an appointment because many agencies are extremely busy but if there’s a little time between your trip and the application process, then it may not be necessary.

The next step is taking your documents to the passport agency for processing-and usually you’ll need to take two photos with you as well. Once everything has been submitted and processed, you can expect to receive a notice in the mail within approximately 1 week.

When you receive your passport, you’ll want to make sure it isn’t damaged or that none of the information has been altered in any way. If anything looks suspicious, then don’t use it it may be best to contact the issuing agency and have a new one issued without delay.

That isn’t likely to happen at all, but just so you know.

Now, when getting your passport expedited is an absolute necessity, it’s always recommended to trust the process to a professional!

Providers of passport expediting services have many benefits, including:

• Fast processing times-often taking less than 24 hours for your documents to be ready

• Convenient scheduling options because most appointments can be scheduled online or over the phone. In addition, if you need your document fast and there’s no time for an appointment, then you may be able to take advantage of same-day or even next-day services.

• Friendly staff members who are trained to help answer any questions that might arise during your application process.

So how can you get a passport quickly if you don’t have time for one of the expedited services?

If you’re in a rush and your time is limited, then consider:

• Contacting the agency directly: Each state has its own set of agencies that issue passports. These are usually located at a local post office or within federal government buildings. You can reach them through the telephone or by visiting their website for more information regarding how to get a passport fast!

• Visiting an agency in person: Although this isn’t the most convenient option, it can work if you need to get your document one day prior to departure. Of course, not everyone has time to spend making an appointment and waiting for hours so if that’s the case, then you can try using one of the other methods.

• Calling the National Passport Information Center: Although this isn’t a service that provides passport expediting, they can provide you with information regarding all agencies in your state so it may be worth a shot. In fact, many people use this service to locate an agency near them and then go from there.

Applicants must decide for themselves which method of passport expediting they’ll use-and although making an appointment can delay the process, it may be worth it especially if you can’t take time off from work. Contacting the agency directly may not be as convenient but is often faster and always free so keep this option in mind when you’re in a rush!

Do passports expire?

They do.

Then when is the last day you can use your passport?

Passports have a specific expiration date-and unlike many forms of identification, the U.S. government does require renewal every 10 years (if you are/were at least 16 years old when you got it) although there are some exceptions.

Passports generally must be renewed every 10 years for people 16 and older. For children under the age of 16, passports will expire after 5 years or when the child reaches 18-whichever comes first.

This means that you can use your passport as long as it’s valid. In terms of when you should renew, it’s best to do so 3 – 6 months before it expires.

This will give you time for your new one to come so you aren’t stressed or panicked about having a valid one for your next trip.

TIP: Review the expiration date of your passport and the travel requirements of the country or countries you will be traveling to because certain countries have different entry requirements. Some require that your passport not expire up to 6 months after your entry to their country.

What will happen if your passport has expired and you’re not aware of it?

Traveling outside the U.S. with an expired passport is a serious offense and could result in you being detained for questioning by border patrol agents as well as facing fines or even jail time so if it’s been more than five years since your last renewal, then consider renewing immediately!

If you’re planning on traveling within the next few months, then you’ll want to make sure that your passport is valid. If not, consider taking care of it as soon as possible.

Where can a person with a US passport travel?

Almost anywhere! With a US passport, you can travel to most places around the world. There are a few exceptions to this, and you should consult your embassy before departure if you have any concerns.

Related: What’s the “passport issuing country” if you’re in a foreign country?

Do I need a passport if I don’t travel?

Maybe. There are a few reasons why you might need a passport:

• If you’re a dual citizen and traveling to another country that requires proof of citizenship, then it’s best to carry one with you.

• In order to apply for entrance into some countries or visit US embassies and consulates, a valid passport is required.

• If you’re a citizen of the U.S., then you need to carry one while traveling outside of the territory.

Do all US citizens need a passport?

No. Not everyone is required to carry a passport while traveling outside the country, especially if they’re not visiting any countries that require proof of citizenship or have any business inside a U.S. embassy or consulate.

If you don’t fall under these categories, then it’s best to consider carrying one with you to avoid being detained at the border.

What can you do to make your passport last?

As long as it’s kept safe in a clean environment, then you shouldn’t have any problems with your passport lasting for up to 10 years after it is issued. In order to extend the life of your document, consider:

• Not getting water or other liquids on the pages.

• Keeping it in a dry, cool place so that the ink doesn’t fade or smear.

• Keeping important documents and other valuables out of sight to avoid damage or tampering (if you don’t have a locking passport pouch).

• Staying organized-always keep your passport with you even when traveling domestically or when you’re not going to be traveling abroad.

Should you renew or replace a passport that has been damaged?

If your passport has been damaged, then it’s best to replace it. Some people are under the common misconception that if they apply for a new passport, then the one issued prior will still have value. This is not the case and you’re better off renewing it if there’s any trouble with your old one or doubt in your mind.

As long as you’ve kept a copy of everything that was in your previous document (or have a digital image of everything) then you should be able to apply pretty quickly and easily.

How much does it cost to renew a US passport?

There are a couple of different fees associated with “getting your passport”. The price for each document has changed a little over time as the government works on updating them or changing the way they are issued. Currently, depending on what you need, the pricing is as follows:

Passport Book – $110

Passport Card – $30

Passport Book & Card – $140

What is a Passport Book?

A US passport is a travel document issued by the United States government, mostly for use by its citizens. This is typically what you think of when you hear the word “passport”. It’s a small booklet that contains your identification photo(s), personal information and more. Your unique identification number is printed inside as well as on the outside of the front cover.

What is a Passport Card?

A passport card may be used in lieu of a passport book if traveling between mainland United States and Canada or Mexico. The “card” refers to its size which measures 2 3/4 inches wide by 4 3/4 inches long. This is smaller than a traditional passport book because of the limitations of space on the cards.

To apply for one, you’ll need to visit an acceptance facility that can be found here: https://iafdb.travel.state.gov/.

You can apply for the card even if you already have or have had a passport book. This is because they are considered separate documents. You can also apply for either at the same time as your passport, so long as it’s in conjunction with your renewal.

Here are some additional tips and guidance about where and when and what to get https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/how-apply/where-to-apply.html

What are a Passport Book and Card combo?

A combination of your wanting both a passport book and a passport card. You might want this in case you’re going to a country that accepts both documents and will let you in with either of them (Canada, for example). Or perhaps you just want to have the added protection of having your information in two different formats.

What is a passport?

A passport is a document that certifies your identity, issued by the government of your country. It usually contains information such as your name and date of birth, but it may also include other personal data as well. 

In Conclusion

There you have it. Your most frequently asked questions about passports answered. At least those are the ones I get the most here.

Now it’s up to you to go get yours and make some travel plans! There are so many wonderful places to get out and see!

Get your passport, ask your boss for some time off of work and get out there!

The flag carrier airline of the Netherlands is KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. On most of their flights, pets are allowed in the cabin and the cargo hold. Bookings for pets must be made by phone. 

They recommend making the reservation at least 48 hours before departure, as there can only be a limited number of pet spots on most flights. You can however call them as early as 24 hours after you book your flight. I certainly recommend doing that to make sure there is room for your dog on your flight. 

When you are ready to make your travel arrangements, call the KLM Customer Service Team at 866-434-0320. The charge for pet care during a transfer from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam Airport is 150 EUR if your pet is checked in as baggage and the transfer lasts over two hours.

Travel Tips for Your Next Trip! (Flying or Driving, Bringing Your Family or Just Your Pets!)

Travel Tips for Your Next Trip! (Flying or Driving, Bringing Your Family or Just Your Pets!)

traveler sitting at horshoe bend

Whether you are driving or flying, I have found some super helpful things to do either before or while traveling that have helped me out over the years… I just wanted to get them all in one place so I can reference them in the future.

I thought they might be helpful for you too! Read on!

Before you get on a long-haul flight

– If flying makes you uncomfortable, practice deep breathing exercises before boarding so that during take-off and landing, you will be able to control your breathing.

– Do a dozen or two squats every day for the week or two leading up to your trip. This will help you when you are hauling around that luggage. This will help prepare the body for all those hours of sitting in a cramped space. It will also help you enjoy your trip more while you are there.

– Bring food that is not messy but definitely bring some food with you! A protein-rich snack or meal will help sustain blood sugar levels on a flight, while carbohydrate-rich foods such as pasta can keep hunger at bay for up to three hours.

– Take your shoes off and get up at least once an hour – whether it’s to use the restroom, go for a walk, stretch your legs or just wander the plane looking for a place to nibble. This will alleviate the swelling in your feet and legs which often occurs during long flights.

– Pack some pain relief medication as well as an antihistamine to counteract nasal congestion in case of air travel allergies. Medications should be used before take-off, to reduce any drowsiness on landing. Bring a neck pillow, small blanket and eyeshades/earplugs if you need them.

– Preparation is key so print out travel documents such as hotel confirmation email or your electronic ticket receipt on the flight, with your name clearly displayed on it in case of lost luggage. Carry your passport at all times, because it will be checked at the airport before you can board, and again at check-in as well as immigration upon your arrival.

– Get a window seat if possible so you can stick your head out and enjoy the view. If you’re seated next to an open window, make sure that there are no loose objects around – especially in turbulence – to avoid any accidents when climbing over people in awkward seats!

– Wear layers of clothing for long flights so you will have options depending on how warm or cold you feel while airborne. Ticket pockets that allow carry-on baggage onboard are useful, but remember to keep your passport handy too! Carry just basic toiletries rather than large bottles of liquid. Powders are lighter and can be mixed later in the bathroom.

– Bring your own water bottle on board, as not all airlines provide them for free. You might even consider buying a canned drink to accompany you during take-off so that once airborne, you have something to sip on throughout the flight instead of paying exorbitant prices for tiny portions of water.

– For airplane ear pain, a cotton swab dabbed with rubbing alcohol will help relieve pressure on the eardrum. Also, try chewing gum if this helps adjust the pressure in your ears – pop one in at take-off time. Earplugs may also be useful for sleeping or if sitting next to someone who talks loudly or is snoring.

– Although aircrews shut the windows during take-off to reduce a cabin’s pressure, in some cases, passengers may still experience ears popping – it is not unusual for the first few minutes of flight. If pain persists or if you feel any dizziness while flying, immediately alert a flight attendant who will be able to provide you with an anti-nausea medication (available onboard) as well as oxygen if necessary.

– For nausea, suck on ginger candy or use special motion sickness bands. Also, ask your doctor for advice because he or she can give you a motion sickness prescription that works in advance instead of having to wait until feeling sick. A saline eyedropper is also useful if headaches result from being sick.

– If you plan to sleep, bring any medication that might aid in sleeping (such as Benadryl or melatonin) – although alcohol is prohibited on the flight, it may help you fall asleep faster than caffeine and other stimulants after a long day of traveling. Also, bring your own eye shades/earplugs if noise and lights bother you while trying to rest/sleep.

– To avoid jet-lag, try drinking water ahead of time even if not thirsty because dehydration can cause sleeplessness at odd hours. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor before leaving for your destination who will advise further treatment such as antihistamines or prescribed medications prior to departure. Eat small meals often during long flights and choose foods that are easily digestible.

– Use body lotion or moisturizer on your hands and feet if you will be doing a lot of walking while at the airport, which can dry out your skin. Consider packing hand sanitizer as well – especially for those who might not wash their hands regularly during an extended trip abroad.

– Bringing gifts, snacks, magazines or books for children onboard is a nice gesture so they’re occupied and quiet (especially if you’re seated close to them) throughout the flight instead of running up and down the cabin disturbing other passengers!

– Keep IDs handy in case of lost luggage because it will speed up your claim at the airport once you arrive. Also, keep medications organized in your bag so that you easily access them while onboard the aircraft.

– It is advisable to hire a good travel insurance policy, especially with pre-existing medical conditions, for personal liability coverage in case of theft or damage to baggage/personal items while traveling. If you’re planning to stay overseas for an extended period – ask about extending your travel insurance policy and consider taking out additional coverage depending on the length of stay (a few months may prove useful if plans change). Learn more about insurance cover here.

– To save luggage space, avoid packing unnecessarily heavy clothing/shoes although this will depend on how long you will be staying at your destination. For any valuables like jewelry, do not keep them in your checked baggage, instead pack them into your carry-on luggage.

– If you’re taking a long flight overseas, get a good night’s sleep the night before so that you arrive fresh and energized (or better yet – take an afternoon nap). Traveling on empty can make you tired and cranky especially if there are delays or issues at check-in or immigration. Also avoid eating heavy meals within 4 hours of travel time as this can lead to indigestion, heartburn and uncomfortable cramps during the flight.

– If possible, try to book seats near emergency exits (rows 1-4) because these are usually located right next to toilets thus having easy access when needed.

– If you’re worried about seat selection, consider booking online because this gives you a better idea of where to sit before your departure so that you can avoid being stuck between an aisle and window or near the bathroom.

– When flying during peak seasons (especially December to March) or long distance flights – book early! Traveling standby may be more convenient but it won’t save you any money and as seats become limited, fares become higher. Booking online is recommended because airlines usually provide discounted fares on their websites which means that travel agents will charge extra fees for brokering such deals. There are also promo codes available on social media if you regularly follow airline/travel pages on Facebook.

– If you’re just flying within Asia, consider using this site to search through the many airlines that fly and undercut each other on prices.

– Get a good sleep before your flight (aim for 7-9 hours) by staying away from bright lights (e.g. TV or phones) one hour before bedtime so that your body’s internal clock can adjust naturally.

– Consider packing tissues for use in the restrooms especially when you travel during flu season.

– If you’re flying a long distance and are prone to motion sickness, consider buying some over-the-counter medications like Imodium or anti-nausea patches (available at pharmacies) to help with the situation early on.

– Consider bringing your own meals and snacks for travel especially if you have dietary restrictions. Airline food can get boring and unhealthy when eaten over a span of several hours!

– Bring extra socks/slippers on board because they tend to be small in size as compared to other flight amenities so that you’ll always be comfortable during your journey home.

– Pack toiletries separately, making sure that items don’t leak inside your luggage

– Store liquid items in plastic bottles or vacuum sealed bags and pack these in your hand luggage to avoid unnecessary liquids delays. If you’re worried about bulky toiletries, consider buying travel-sized options so that you save space within your suitcase.

 Packing luggage tips

– Roll all the clothing into small tight bundles – this will save space inside your bag as well as reduce wrinkling during transit (wider/looser rolls cause more creases). Make sure that nothing is sticking out of the top of the roll because this can get caught on other items or surfaces.

– To protect delicate clothes, place them strategically at the bottom layer of the suitcase (clothes packed on top tend to rub against anything underneath it). Be sure that wider straps are facing downwards (to prevent them from accidentally scratching your clothes) and don’t over-stuff bags with heavy items as this can cause damage to other fabrics. For delicate shoes, place a plastic bag or newspaper at the bottom of the suitcase so that they don’t get crushed under heavier clothing.

– If you’re going on a short trip (1 week), pack only 1 carry-on, 2 check-in luggage in case one is lost/damaged during transit, and make use of a separate ladies handbag for any essentials such as cards/passport/cash. This will also help you keep track of what’s inside your luggage. Keep valuables inside your jacket or pant pockets when you’re in transit.

– Label all important documents and luggage pieces with permanent markers. This includes your ticket, passport, credit cards, etc so that if they are lost during transit, authorities will be able to return them to you quickly.

– Never pack valuable items in checked-in luggage because the ground staff not only have access to baggage but can also sometimes open the cases and rummage through contents without permission (particularly on smaller airlines). Exchange currency before leaving for the airport so that this doesn’t get confiscated by immigration if found inadvertently within your bags. If you do bring valuables with you, ensure that these are placed within your handbag/briefcase inside a zip-locked plastic bag/secure travel pouch to avoid theft.

– If you’re worried about carrying too much luggage, consider getting a travel companion or cab driver at your destination point to pick up the rest of your items from airport storage. Local hotels (notably in Europe) have safe deposit facilities within their reception areas where they can store your cases for several days/weeks upon request. This is obviously a better alternative than lugging around extra bags with you during sightseeing activities!

– Never carry your passport in hand luggage or pockets because this is a potential risk if you’re also bringing cash and/or credit cards. You should also opt to leave important documents such as tickets, passports, etc at home when you’re on an extended vacation so that they are not lost (especially during transit). Prepare yourself with copies of these instead.

– While travel insurance may not be something that interests everyone, it’s highly recommended for long trips especially if you’re traveling on a budget. Countries can get pretty expensive once airfare, hotel rentals and transportation costs have been factored into the equation! Also, consider getting additional coverage options if you plan to do some extreme activities such as bungee jumping or skydiving while abroad.

– When packing small toiletries like suntan lotion, oil, etc, use mini bottles that can fit into drawers and smaller travel packs so that they don’t take up too much space within your luggage. Also remember to keep duplicates of all important documents such as passports etc in separate places so that if one is lost/damaged during transit, you still have others to fall back upon.

– For long-haul trips (especially when flying), consider investing in a portable travel pillow as this will help prevent neck pain and allow your head to properly rest against the plane’s seat headrests. Pack light clothing that won’t weigh you down or restrict your movements too much; bring clothes that can be dried easily if accidentally washed/damaged after use.

– If you’re traveling on business, don’t forget to carry a suit jacket, formal shoes and trousers for important work meetings. Bring only mini size toiletries (unless you plan to buy them once abroad) so that excess bottles don’t take up too much space within your luggage.

– Always pack a bar of hand soap or liquid body wash so that you can easily wash your hands when there are no accessible bathrooms around. Pack at least 1 pair of dark sunglasses and one pair of prescription/contact lens if you need them.

– Always opt for business class on long flights when you can because these seats offer greater legroom, larger entertainment screens, pillows, blankets, etc. Book seats with the most direct aisle access as these provide easier movement within and outside of your airline.

– When traveling to developing countries, make sure that you bring a first-aid kit (especially if you’re planning activities like cycling) so that you can treat minor cuts/wounds or insect bites, etc. Bring extra painkillers for treating sore muscles/migraine headaches too.

– If you’re bringing electronic gadgets such as laptops, cameras, watches, etc with you on trips abroad, make sure that these are packed into hardshell cases to protect against bumps/scratches during transit. Also, think about buying quality travel adapters that allow compatible electrical appliances to function when plugged into native sockets overseas.

– When traveling abroad on work, spend some time preparing your presentations beforehand so that you don’t have to waste valuable time in airplanes/rooms. Install mobile apps such as maps.me before leaving for a trip so that you can use offline navigation controls if there is no data connection available!

– If you’re traveling during the holidays (or anytime really), try to book hotels with access to amenities like gyms and pools. This will allow you the freedom to exercise during down-times without having to worry about finding public gyms or budgeting for membership fees. It’s also a good idea to pack multiple pairs of holiday clothes because this allows you greater flexibility when it comes to changing outfits every day.

– When going abroad, download the Google Translate app to your smartphone so that you can instantly translate new languages during interactions/transit. Bring a hardcover book/journal with you if you’re needing some downtime and want to reduce the amount of electronics on your person when traveling!

– If you plan to visit cities famous for their nightlife, try to pay for a hotel room in advance (either individually or as part of an event package) so that there aren’t any last-minute surprises about accommodation availability. Also make sure that you have the right type of travel insurance before leaving on a trip because this will help provide financial assistance in case anything happens during transit (e.g credit card theft, accidental injuries etc).

– When going abroad, bring a phone charger with multiple socket types (eg US/EU) so that you can plug in your devices without having to buy new chargers or carry multiple travel adapters! Pack at least one pair of headphones/earphones too because they’re useful if you need silence for sleeping or need private listening during flights/bus journeys.

– If you’re planning a road trip overseas, try to avoid driving at night as roads are less well-lit and safety precautions like seatbelts aren’t always followed by local drivers! Bring moisturizer or lip balm with SPF to protect skin from UV rays when traveling to sunny destinations.

– When preparing to travel on a long flight, buy inflatable pillows and blankets from Amazon because these are more compact than ones that come with plastic packaging. Before leaving for a trip abroad, take pictures of all your passport/IDs/credit cards, etc and store them digitally so that you have backups in case something happens!

– If you’re visiting a developing country where there is little to no available internet connection, try using the XE Currency app (available on both iOS and Android platforms) to check currency conversion rates. It’s also worth learning some basic phrases in local languages such as “please” and “thank you” before traveling overseas!

– When going abroad on work, it’s a good idea to bring along presentation notes or even business cards in other languages for interactions with foreign partners. Before leaving on a trip, take the time to go over the itinerary and ensure that there are no typos!

– If you’re traveling during peak holiday periods (e.g Christmas), try to plan your events/reservations as early as possible so that everything can be confirmed beforehand. Pack some snacks too if you’re traveling because this allows you to keep costs down when walking around unfamiliar cities.

– If you’re visiting a foreign country, bring pictures of the local language on your smartphone so that you can point at these during interactions with natives/public transport drivers.

– When going abroad, try to make use of public transit as much as possible because this is more environmentally friendly than renting/driving personal vehicles (plus car rental services are less affordable during peak travel periods). Pack medicines such as cold medicine or painkillers too because they might come in handy when traveling!

– When traveling overseas, it’s a good idea to have immediate funds available in case there are any unexpected expenses. This will allow you to pay for things like taxis without having to worry about accessing credit or debit cards. Before leaving on a trip, try to remember the last time you charged all your devices so that they are fully functional upon arrival!

– When going abroad, make use of travel forums such as TripAdvisor.com because this allows you to learn whether there are any safety issues with certain areas/districts in foreign countries (plus it’s useful for learning about hidden gems while also avoiding tourist traps). Pack some wet wipes too if you’re visiting humid destinations because these can be used to clean hands/tables etc without having to worry about access to soap and water.

– If you’re traveling overseas during peak travel periods, make sure that electronic devices have enough battery life so that you don’t have to worry about charging them during your trip.

– When going abroad, bring along some multi-vitamins because they can be used to supplement local diet especially in developing countries where people suffer from malnutrition. Pack reading material too if you’re traveling overseas (e.g magazines or books) because this will allow for maximum personal productivity on the plane!

– If you’re visiting a foreign country, try to learn some basic phrases in their native language beforehand so that you can properly communicate with locals/public transport drivers while traveling. Also, try not to compare your destination’s characteristics/infrastructure with your home country because this might end up ruining the experience!

– When traveling overseas, try to pack extra snacks for long trips because having a full stomach can help you sleep better while also relieving stress. It’s also worth remembering that people in other countries might not be used to seeing visitors from your country so always dress appropriately when visiting foreign nations!

– If you’re traveling abroad and need vaccinations for the local environment (e.g yellow fever), make sure that these are taken several months before departure so that reactions/side effects don’t interfere with personal plans. Pack a power bank too because this will allow for maximum smartphone battery life while traveling.

– When going abroad, it’s a good idea to bring along some water purification tablets because this will allow you to avoid contracting diarrhea/stomach issues. Similarly, be sure to pack a passport/identity cardholder so that personal belongings are kept safe while traveling!

– When visiting foreign lands, it’s a good idea to bring along some tissue paper too because this can be used for cleaning hands/toilet seats etc without having to worry about access to water or soap. Wherever possible, try not to schedule important meetings during peak travel periods because travel can ruin productivity levels!

– When going abroad, remember that public transport systems often get sold out during peak travel periods so buy tickets in advance if possible. Also, remember that people from different cultures might have different definitions of ‘personal space’ so be careful about personal boundaries if you’re traveling overseas!

– When going abroad, remember to bring along some earplugs because this can help you sleep better while also allowing for peaceful relaxation. In addition, make sure that your luggage is solid enough to deter theft especially when visiting foreign lands.

– When traveling overseas, always check the baggage allowance beforehand and don’t overpack – remember that overweight charges are almost certain during peak travel periods! Before visiting a foreign country/city, try to find out its local emergency number so that safety measures are put into place in case of emergencies (e.g getting lost or suffering from an allergic reaction).

– When visiting foreign lands, make sure that you take along an extra set of clothes because this will allow you to pack less while also giving yourself peace of mind. Also, remember that it’s a good idea to pack some insect repellent so that you don’t have to worry about mosquito bites etc when traveling overseas!

– When visiting foreign countries, be sure to check the local customs and culture beforehand so that behavior doesn’t ruin plans/experiences – being polite always goes a long way! Remember that common sense is key if traveling overseas (e.g checking weather forecasts before departure) because bad weather can delay/ruin travel plans!

– When traveling abroad, bring along a portable charger so that your smartphone/camera battery doesn’t run out while also giving you peace of mind. It’s also worth remembering to bring along a universal power adapter because these are more versatile than traditional ones!

– When visiting foreign lands, try to pack an umbrella so that rain doesn’t ruin plans – remember how awful it feels when returning home as a result of inclement weather conditions. When planning trips abroad, always check whether it will be sunny or rainy beforehand and try not to forget important prescription medicines too!

– When traveling abroad, make sure that there is cash in the emergency stash in case of emergencies (e.g paying for transport services, etc) – using credit cards overseas is often riskier during peak travel periods! Also, remember to bring along a drinking water bottle because having access to potable water is often not available when traveling overseas. Similarly, consider bringing along some old clothes/towels too so that you can use these strictly for dirty purposes while traveling – this is usually cheaper than buying such items overseas.

– When visiting foreign countries, be sure to check whether certain services are covered by insurance beforehand – otherwise, it might be better to avoid them. Always take precautions against crime (e.g checking into hotels during off-peak travel periods) and make sure that the luggage being carried is always properly locked (preferably with two locks) in case of theft!

– When planning trips abroad, check whether there are any country-specific restrictions before getting vaccinated – this will help prevent unnecessary complications. Before visiting foreign lands, remember to take along at least two credit cards with different numbers on them just in case one gets stolen or lost – sometimes having cash is better than relying solely on plastic for various reasons (e.g not being able to use the card when away from home).

– When visiting foreign cities, always check whether there are any currency exchange restrictions – this will help prevent complications. Keep in mind that carrying a notebook and pen can be useful when traveling overseas because it helps take notes of instructions/directions etc and makes travel much easier!

– When traveling abroad, keep important things like passport/visa/credit cards, etc on hand so that inclement weather doesn’t ruin plans – during times such as these, having extra cash is often necessary. It’s also worth remembering to bring along an assistive device with you (e.g mobile phone) for use in case of emergencies (e.g getting lost or suffering from an allergic reaction). Before visiting foreign countries, do try to find out about the local cuisine beforehand so that you have a rough idea of what to expect – that way, things like excess salt/spiciness will not be overpowering.

– When visiting foreign lands, make sure that any credit cards are kept within view at all times in case of loss or theft and it’s also worth remembering to always take along important things like wallet, passport/visa, etc when traveling abroad! It’s also worth noting that currency exchange rates can change rapidly (e.g due to inflation) and it might be better to buy bought items overseas with cash instead because some credit card companies charge more for foreign transactions. Remember to keep an eye on where luggage is being carried in public places (e.g bus/airport) and try to avoid getting lost while traveling!

– When visiting foreign countries, remember to keep the map on hand because it helps one get around much easier. Also, when traveling abroad, it’s always better if there is someone who can help out in case of emergency (e.g being able to communicate with locals) – this way, complications are reduced and things become much easier.

– It’s important that travelers check their travel insurance coverage before leaving for a holiday because some companies might exclude certain services from reimbursement like overseas medical claims etc. Similarly, when planning trips abroad, do try to find out what effects these vacations will have on things at home (e.g school work, pets, etc) and make sure that everything is taken care of before leaving.

– When planning trips abroad, remember to check visa requirements for the destination – this will help prevent complications. It’s also important that travelers check how much luggage they can carry in public places (e.g bus/airport) so that things do not get ruined or lost during travel. While visiting foreign countries, it’s best to put a sticker on passports with contact information in case one gets misplaced or stolen – this way, problems can be solved more easily if such an incident occurs!

– It’s important that travelers check in advance about any currency exchange restrictions because these might cause complications. Also, when traveling abroad, it’s usually a good idea to learn certain basics of the local language (e.g greetings) – this will help make travel much easier!

– It’s important that travelers take along at least two credit cards with different numbers on them whenever traveling overseas – this way, problems related to lost/stolen cards can be solved more easily and hassle free.

Road trip travel tips

– While planning road trips, it’s best to take along certain essentials (e.g maps/camera, etc) because they help make travel a whole lot easier. It’s also worth remembering to check road conditions and traffic rules for the destination before going on a road trip – this will ensure that things do not get complicated!

– When planning road trip vacations, remember to check gas availability at different places beforehand so that there are no surprises later on. Similarly, when traveling by car abroad, make sure that all documents needed by authorities (e.g registration card, etc) are kept in view so that complications can be avoided during border crossings!

– It’s important that travelers take along extra cash for use in case of emergencies while traveling by car abroad because some credit cards might not function in certain places!

– When going on road trips, make sure that the vehicle is in good condition – this will reduce the chances of accidents. Also, when planning road trips, it’s best to carry along a few gallons of water and snacks (e.g fruit/chips) since these items are needed when traveling long distances!

– It’s important that travelers keep an eye on the time while traveling by car abroad because some countries use their own times which may vary drastically from the host nation.

– While planning a road trip vacation, it’s best to take along certain essentials (e.g cell phone/camera) – they help make travel much easier and things become simpler! Also, remember to keep a map of the surrounding areas near you for easy reference!

– It’s important to keep in mind the local traffic laws of a destination while traveling by car abroad because these might be different from home and cause problems later on! Similarly, when going on road trips, remember to pack all the documents needed by authorities at the time of entering/leaving a country (e.g passport/driver’s license, etc.) – this will make things easier if anything goes wrong during border crossings.

– While planning road trips, remember to take along extra cash for use in case of emergencies – this will help if one is stranded on a deserted road! It’s also important that travelers research their destinations before traveling by car abroad because some countries have strict laws and penalties related to driving which may land the driver into trouble!

– It’s best to carry a cell phone when traveling by car abroad (or any vehicle) so that in case of an emergency or need for assistance, it can be called. Also, while planning road trips, remember to check gas availability at different places beforehand so that there are no surprises later on. Similarly, when traveling by car abroad, make sure that all documents needed by authorities (e.g registration card, etc) are kept in view so that complications can be avoided during border crossings!

– When planning road trips, take along the phone numbers of a few hospitals/police stations near you so that in case of an emergency, they can be called for help – this will save on trouble later on.

– It’s important to keep the drugs/medicine used by travelers up-to-date (especially those which need regular refills) because if there is any need for medical assistance while traveling by car abroad or any other vehicle, it’ll have to be shown at that time and might prove problematic if outdated! Also, when planning road trips, remember to check gas availability at different places beforehand so that there are no surprises later on. Similarly, when traveling by car abroad, make sure that all documents needed by authorities (e.g registration card, etc) are kept in view so that complications can be avoided during border crossings!

– It’s important that all travelers pack an emergency survival kit when planning road trips abroad because this helps in case of emergencies and will prove essential if something goes wrong on the way.

– While going on road trips, remember to keep essentials like water/snacks with you since these are required and might be difficult to find at times while traveling by car overseas or any vehicle! Also, make sure that passports/visas for the destination country are up-to-date – this will help things run smoothly during border crossings if there is a need for them. Similarly, travelers must carry along extra cash (and credit cards) for use in case of emergencies while traveling by car abroad because some credit cards might not be accepted in some countries/cities!

Tipping while you travel made simple

– While tipping is not mandatory anywhere in the world, it’s customary for travelers to show appreciation towards services rendered especially during foreign travels (when these are provided as an added service by default). Service personnel are generally underpaid as compared to their Western counterparts and rely on tips for part of their income.

– Ensure that you know the tipping etiquette for your destination country before embarking on a trip because rules for tipping differ in each location. Check with locals or do some research beforehand, so that travelers don’t end up offending others unknowingly.

– While leaving tips is not mandatory, it does go a long way in getting better service especially in these times of economic uncertainty (when employers can no longer afford to pay employees more). A good strategy is to turn down unnecessary services at hotels/restaurants so that staff can concentrate on providing better quality services to travelers who are tipping them.

– If you’re staying at a hotel, leave some loose change (or small bills) for housekeeping staff and room service attendants so that they can be rewarded for their services while leaving a large bill or tip in the form of $1-$5 to concierges who help travelers with planning excursions/local information, etc. For taxi/limousine drivers and tour guides, consider giving around 10% and local guides can get by on approximately 5%.

– When paying tips, place the cash inside an envelope and use this to pay farewell tips instead of handing out money directly to servers/drivers because this avoids confusion over how much you paid. It’s also very important to read confirmation receipts to ensure that you didn’t get overcharged for services rendered.

– It’s customary not to tip at all in the following scenarios: 1) Restaurants where service fees/tips are already included within your bill 2) Service is poor 3) People who don’t usually accept tips (like hotel porters etc). Some restaurants will even include a note on their checklists asking customers not to leave any tips for mediocre service! If you feel compelled or are open-minded enough to give a tip because of exceptional service, then do so but make sure this forms part of the overall bill and isn’t merely tossed in addition.

– If you’re visiting areas where tipping isn’t considered mandatory or common practice, then avoid doing so. In some countries like Japan and South Korea, for example, tipping is looked upon as insulting because it insinuates that the staff has provided poor services which would warrant a tip in the first place!

– While tipping isn’t generally expected during local travels within a country, do leave a small gratuity of between 5% to 10% when using taxis/auto-rickshaws, etc. since these are usually not inclusive of any service charges – especially if you want to ensure return services at your convenience. Note: If you’re traveling with friends/family members who don’t consider this `mandatory’, make sure they don’t object to your generosity towards the driver/staff while paying the bill.

– If you’re traveling with kids and need to access baby strollers, wheelchairs, etc., then tip 10% of their original cost. Always check beforehand to find out if tipping is mandatory in your destination country before paying any gratuities. In Japan, for example, service charges at restaurants are generally considered part of the bill but travelers can still leave tips by adding it on top if they feel compelled to do so!

– The survival kit that gets overlooked whenever a person travels abroad isn’t a suitcase or an extra pair of shoes but travel-sized toiletries like antiseptics, dental floss/scissors, handwash lotion/sanitizer, etc. If you’re staying in hotels, it’s best to always keep a small supply on hand because most places may not provide these items for free!

– While using public toilets can be a rather unpleasant experience especially if you’re traveling abroad, make the best of it by bringing along travel-sized toiletries from home. You’ll save the cost of having to tuck in a few quarters (for paying the services) every time you step into one!

– Before jetting off on your international holiday, think about storing your favorite toiletries at home for when you return back later. This will help ensure that nothing goes missing/mislaid during transit and you don’t have to worry about spaces getting filled up on your return trip.

– Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, make sure you travel with updated health and other important documents in hand. This will help ensure that nothing goes wrong at the last minute while abroad. Make duplicate copies of the same (in case something gets mislaid) and keep it safe from damaging elements like water etc.

– If your luggage is overweight or oversize, then use a luggage shipping company to get items delivered at your destination instead of paying extra charges during check-ins/check-outs or even worse; being refused entry due to excess baggage! You could also consider sending them by road if time permits since this is usually cheaper than the flight route.

Travel tips with pets

– Are you planning to travel abroad with a pet (bird, cat, dog, etc.)? Then make sure that the animal complies with all the country-specific vaccination/quarantine rules and regulations prior to departure. This will help ensure a smooth entry into the country without any hassles!

– If you’re traveling abroad with a pet who’s a picky eater, then consider packing canned/dried food along to keep them well-fed throughout your trip. This will ensure that you don’t have to worry much about their diet so as long as they get all the essential nutrients in their bodies.

– If you plan on going overseas with your pet, then make the most of getting travel insurance beforehand. This will help ensure that any unforeseen illnesses or accidents are taken care of – instead of having to shell out exorbitant amounts for expensive treatments at hospitals/clinics, etc.

– When traveling abroad with pets like dogs and cats, it’s best to book hotels that provide pet services like food/walk-time, etc. This will help ensure that you don’t have to worry much about going out and leaving your pet behind every time he gets hungry or tired!

– Pet carriers may not be the most attractive thing to lug around while traveling abroad but they are vital if you’re planning on taking along a pet with you. Make sure you buy one according to the size of your pet so as to provide enough air circulation, enough room for movement, etc. Also, check out their requirements for in-flight safety by contacting your airline beforehand.

– Keeping pets safe (especially dogs) during trips isn’t just about making sure that they don’t run away from home, but also to keep them from getting into trouble like picking up bad habits or even worse; falling in the hands of pet-nappers (many kidnapping cases have been reported during past years). To ensure their safety, it’s best to make sure that you walk them only when necessary – depending on your security/safety level – and for shorter times.

– If you plan on going overseas with your dog, then consider training him/her beforehand so as to acclimatize faster. This will help establish manners and discipline among pets, put less stress on you and even your fellow travelers while abroad!

– When traveling with a dog, it’s always better to book a hotel which allows pets. This way, you don’t have to leave your pet behind in the hotel room while you go sightseeing or working. Keep him/her company by booking a suite with an additional bedroom!

– Booking hotels with pets is one thing, insuring them during trips maybe another. Contact the pet service provider beforehand and check out their coverage rates before setting off on long journeys abroad so as to not come across any last-minute hassles.

– How well behaved (following commands etc.) is your dog? If he tends to ignore you at times of emergency then it’s best to get some obedience training done beforehand. This will ensure that your dog responds better when needed and that it’s a safer travel experience for both of you.

– If your dog tends to bark incessantly or is hyperactive, then consider getting them some behavioral training beforehand. This will make sure that they are more controlled while on the road, less disruptive and easier to handle during emergencies.

– It’s always best to have a pet sitter take care of your pets back home if you’re going abroad for extended periods. This will save the hassle of dealing with his/her requirements during travel and also ensure that they are in safe hands. However, if you can’t find a dependable pet sitter, then make sure to get one from a trusted source or board him at a local animal shelter instead!

Traveling with a camera?

– It’s always good to carry extra memory cards (especially the compact ones) while on a trip so as to save time, avoid last-minute hassles and ensure you don’t miss out on any memorable moments.

– When going from place to place, it’s always best to keep your camera bag safe by either putting it in a hard-shell backpack or keeping it close at hand. In case of theft, merely taking a few pictures won’t help – but your insurance company will definitely appreciate having the complete set of pictures!

– Beware that thieves are everywhere! Even if you’re just walking down the street or researching something nearby – try not to put your cameras (especially DSLRs ) off your reach. If you have them around, then make sure they’re wrapped tightly with the strap-around-the-neck method.

– Never carry expensive camera lenses while traveling! They are too big and can be easy targets for pickpockets. Instead of lugging such expensive items, bring a small lens that takes up less space in your bag!

– If you want to go extreme with your photography, then consider investing in a waterproof camera! This will help capture underwater pictures without breaking the bank!

– When going out with your DSLR, it’s always good to carry it around in a sturdy camera bag. This will not only protect the device but can also double up as another handbag if needed!

– If you want to be stealthy and are using a smartphone, like an iPhone or Android, while traveling, make sure to disable location sharing (under settings) so that your friends/fans cannot track you via GPS tracking on social networks. For Android phones users – there is no such thing as offhand but we suggest using Google Maps instead of the GPS tracking feature.

– If you’re visiting a beachside location, then it’s always best to protect your camera from direct exposure to water, especially saltwater. You can do so with waterproof bags or just use a plastic bag if needed! This will help keep things safe for longer and prevent untimely accidents as well.

– If you’re going to a beach location, then a GoPro (or similar action camera) can be extremely handy! You can easily mount them to your head or chest before getting in the water and take some amazing videos without worrying about anything else!

I recently went to Mexico with my wife and we wanted to travel light so we just took our phones. We got to some great cenotes and wished we had cameras that we could have taken with us underwater. We missed capturing some incredible moments.

Your standard point-and-shoot cameras are really not cut for underwater pictures. And even if it is, you need someone with extreme skills to pull that off. Instead of risking having a working camera but blur images – consider investing in an underwater camera instead! These cameras help capture clearer pics while being safe underwater.

– When you’re out hiking around… on mountains or trekking through forests or a beach – carry extra batteries and memory cards with you so as to capture all those memorable moments without any delays!

– Consider buying a solar-powered charger instead of regular ones when camping/hiking in remote locations where electricity is not easily available. A good example is this solar charger from Anker. ((link))

Traveling with friends?

– When you’re traveling with a friend (or multiple friends), it’s always good to split the cost of renting a cab. This will be cheaper than taking a regular taxi and also help out other people as well! The best places for such service are airports or train stations where cabs are scarce and usually expensive too.

-If you’re with a larger group consider renting an apartment/house in your travel destination rather than staying at a hotel. This is great if you want more privacy and also helps save money. Sites like Airbnb are good examples. ((link))

– When traveling with friends, always keep an eye on each other’s valuables when moving around the place or going to places unknown to you all. Be careful of pickpockets and such issues! Always hang on tight and be safe!

– If in doubt about where something is – ask someone else who appears local to you! Just walk up to them normally and you want to save some time, it’s better to go into the airport a few hours before your flight. You can either sleep in the airport lounge or just spend some time getting yourself acquainted with the area.

– When going out with friends (or family) on road trips, make sure everyone knows their budget beforehand. It’ll avoid conflicts later down the line when someone goes over budget!
