Travel Wise

My tips on "travel wise:"

1) For airport parking, it is wise to park around the same area so that you know where to look for the car when you return to the lot.

2) Always allow extra time if you are catching a popular flight on a Monday morning. I nearly missed my flight twice in 4 months. The first being the Monday after Easter, and the second was due to a road construction which obstructed the traffic.

3) I don't check-in my bag on outbound flights but I do check-in a bag for homebound. I have to be at the clients' office on time so I do not want to waste time making a report on lost baggage when I am away from home and deprive myself of the things I need to use.

4) Book your ticket early so that you will have a better and cheaper connection and fare.

5) Always have a map and driving direction of the place you want to go. Not all cab drivers know the road well.

6) Book your hotel room early. I was in Linconshire (26 miles from Chicago) last week and I could hardly believe that although there are several hotels nearby, only 1 hotel and resort had a room for me. It is pretty expensive yet almost fully booked.

I hope to use your air-travel tips someday... it's been so long since I've flown! You've been to a lot of interesting places--thanks for sharing.

I travel a lot, but with four young children, so we stay a lot closer to home.

I'm glad you find the tips useful.

Children are such a bundle of joy. They give you a full-time job. Enjoy your little travels with your family when your kids are young. When they are bigger, I'm sure you will enjoy longer trips with them.
