Travel Tips That Every Traveler Should Know

Traveling the world is a dream most people have. Imagine yourself uncovering the beauty of a foreign land filled with beautiful places and interesting people— isn't it exciting? If you're ready to have the best travel experience of your life, it's important to know the dos and don'ts while you're on a vacation trip. Below are some helpful tips to make your travel more enjoyable.

Use Your Carry-On Space Wisely

Some travelers pack an entire extra outfit in their carry-on bag. For many senior travelers, this might not be possible, because medications, toiletries, valuables, cameras, eyeglasses and electronics take up a great deal of carry-on space.

At a minimum, pack a change of underwear and socks in your carry-on bag. If possible, add sleepwear and an extra shirt. Wear your jacket onto the plane so you have room left for other items in your carry-on bag. You can always take the jacket off once you are on the airplane.


WATCH OUT FOR THE "BASIC ECONOMY TICKETS" THERE'S A CATCH!!! READ THE RULES BEFORE PURCHASING!! No Carry on Bag, no seat assignments and no exchange of the ticket if you can not go!  Throw in the Garbage!!


WHERE ARE THE DIRTIEST PLACES IN THE AIRPORT???

Those 3-ounce bottles of hand sanitizer are looking really good right now. 

The check-in screens are the dirtiest spots by a long shot, but they certainly aren't the only germ-infested surfaces in an airport. Gate bench armrests and water fountain buttons came in second and third place, with 21,630 CFU/sq. in. and 19,181 CFU/sq. in. respectively. Those levels are comparable to the amount of bacteria found in the average kitchen sink, which studies have shown is one of the dirtiest spots in the home. So the next time you reach to sip some water during your connection, just imagine that button sitting right next to your food remnants and unwashed dishes.
