December’s must know travel tips
1. Why you should create your own mini-guide book
Even if you have a guidebook, write out a brief plan for visiting a city on a sheet of paper (I do this on the plane ride over). This way, you have a quick reference of what you want to see, as well as a backup in case you lose your travel guide (like I did at the Paris Airport trying to catch my train into the city (and figure out how to buy the ticket without standing in line for an hour…).
2. How to easily remember addresses for postcards
If you’re sending post cards, pre-address sticky labels (and don’t forget the country!) to save time trying to remember Aunt Sarah’s address (is it 34 West 54th St or 54 West 34th St?)
3. The phone numbers you should pre-program into your Mobal World Phone
Pre-program in the phone numbers of the hotels you are staying at in your Mobal phone – so that in the worst case, you can call them to figure out how to get there.
4. Why you should keep a note of your Mobal World Phone
(And this happened to me!) Record the phone number for Mobal on paper and store it separately from your phone. That way in case it gets lost or stolen, you can contact Mobal to have the service cut off (and not get billed for Ludmilia calling Boris from Paris to Moscow…).
I enjoy the travel tips!
5. Why you should cross pack your luggage
Cross pack – Pack each suitcase with clothing from both traveling companions. Then if one suitcase is lost or delayed, you each have some of your belongings.
