bulletMiscellaneous Thoughts on traveling  -how to enjoy yourself and get more out of your travel experiences


It never ceases to amaze me that more tourists don't get themselves into more trouble while traveling. Common sense seems to fly out the window when people are on vacation.

Keep in mind, you don't really need any of the stuff listed on the Packing page except for:
bulletyour passport
bulletUS$ cash
bulletmajor credit card (VISA and/or MasterCard)
bulletpaper tickets or a printout of e-tickets (airline, cruise line, train, tour coupons, etc.) - not essential, but it sure makes life easier!

You can survive any trip, providing you have the above items - and a cool head!

Don't panic if disaster strikes while you are away from home - help is available in every country.  If you have access to sufficient funds, you can always buy new clothes and supplies, and a ticket home. 

I hope you find these travel tips of value. If you have any suggestions for improvement, please don't hesitate to email meI always appreciate feedback...
