Tips when Traveling

The sixth commandment for All Travelers: 

“Blessed are they who can wait and smile for they shall enjoy themselves.” 

With every trip you take, either solo or with a group, remember there will be wait time with all forms of transportation, whether it is flying, cruising, train travel, car trips, or by motorcoach.  Prepare in advance for additional wait periods.  And then have some fun.  Discover something you do not already know.  

Things you might do:
  • Reserve tickets to attractions, transfers to/from hotel, and day tours in advance with your personal travel consultant before your trip. 
  • Dine during the "slower periods" of meal time hour.  
  • Have a book ready.
  • Create a game of your own by preparing questions in advance and engage in conversations with at least one new person sitting next to you. Conversation starters to get acquainted with these new friends: where are they going, recent book or movie they liked, favorite exercise, or last trip they took.  
Remember, to have fun during your vacations and even business trips.  Do not be afraid to say "I do not know" and learn something new and different.

Another item different topic: 

Instead of buying presents for each person during the holidays this year, share with a simple flower centerpiece or arrange to play sports game between friends and family.
