How to Travel this Holiday Season

Everyone always asks me how to travel during a holiday season without becoming too stressed out.

What I recommend is that you pack a few days in advance and then double check what you have packed the night before to fill in anything that you feel you haven’t packed such as vitamins, toilitries or anything else you want to bring with you.

For the airplane if you are flying I always recommend taking an extra pair of clothes in case for any reason your bags don’t get to their destination when you get there.

Lastly take deep breathes and give yourself plenty of time whether you are flying, taking the train or driving.

Most importantly have a good time and relax.

Happy Traveling.
