Want to know the ultimate secret to stress free travel? It’s packing light. When we head off on our holidays, many of us are guilty of thinking that we need to take our whole wardrobe away with us, but it’s important to resist this temptation – after all, it can be a little impractical to say the least.
With this in mind, be strict with yourself and pack only what it is that you need, this might make the packing process a little more painful, but it will make moving around a whole lot easier.
Boredom can be a real bummer, there’s no two ways about it. That’s why it’s important to keep yourself and your kids – if you have any – entertained whilst you travel. To beat the boredom try bringing a game or two with you to help pass the time.
Make sure you plan out all aspect of your trip in advance, so that you know exactly where you are going and how you are going to get there.
Whilst this might seem a little excessive, if you want your travel plans to run smoothly then planning ahead is essential.
So try creating an itinerary for your holiday, that includes everything from your flight numbers and times to the address of your accommodation – to ensure that you are as prepared as possible.
