Travel Tips for Your Phone

Do you use your phone when traveling outside the US? Do you use it often? Is is necessary for you to use it?

If so, perhaps you need to think about getting an international plan through your carrier. Be sure you understand and know the limits of that plan, including minutes, charges, hours, etc.

Or, maybe you would be better off with a disposable phone. It probably won’t be the smart phone you are used to, but you won’t need to worry about minutes and extra charges.

Travel Tips and Shoes

What shoes do you take when traveling? How many pairs of shoes do you take?

Experienced travelers take a good pair of walking shoes…especially if you plan on walking around new cities, etc. Make sure you have broken in your walking shoes before you leave home. Did you know that most Europeans can tell you are an American tourist if you wear tennis shoes? There are so many great, comfortable brands of walking shoes that are not ‘tennis shoes’. Plus, many of these types of shoes will work for day trips and then for evening. (unless of course, you are wearing your tux!) Check them out.

How about flip flops? They don’t take up much room in your luggage and they come in handy for the beach, outdoor showers at the beach, walking in the hallways of hotels, etc.

What about nicer shoes to wear when going to dinner? One simple pair that goes with different outfits or different occasions works for this.

Bottom line…you don’t really need a different pair of shoes for each day. Save room in your luggage and double up on the uses for your shoes.
