Think about these things before you travel…some you may need to do well in advance of your next trip.
Get required immunizations: Since some immunizations require more than one dose, you don’t want to wait until the last minute to see what you need. Check the CDC’s Travelers Health or the State Department website to find out what is needed for the country you’re going to visit.
Book your house and pet sitters. Again, waiting until the last minute may mean they are already booked.
Figure out what adapters and converters you will need for the country you are visiting.
Break in any new shoes. Blisters are no fun anywhere…and especially no fun on vacation.
If you need a special meal on the plane, book it now.
