Have you already planned your summer vacation?  Maybe you are still thinking of places to go?  Perhaps you’ve got a big group trip on the horizon?  Either way, you’ll surely want to get prepared beforehand to ease your stress and not feel rushed.  Vacations are supposed to be fun and relaxing, so the last thing you want is to be running around in circles before you leave for the airport.  

Make a List

Making a list of all of the things you need to do before you leave on your trip is essential.  We are all busy and having the list will make sure nothing important slips your mind.  No one wants to be 5,000 miles away from home and realize they forget to do something back there.  

Double Check

Double check all of your reservations.  There is nothing worse than showing up late at night after a long day of travel and then realizing you booked the wrong night.  You’re exhausted and all you want to do is take a warm shower and go to bed.


Make sure you have all the correct documents you need.  Every country has a different entry policy and some require extra documentation other than a passport.  They may even need to see records of any vaccinations that are required.  These are all important so don’t forget this one.  

Know the Climate

Knowing the climate you are going to be vacationing is a good thing to do.  This will help you from overpacking and also keep you from being surprised when you get there.  Some people tend to bring too much stuff that they will never need. Then, you wind up hauling around an extra heavy bag for no reason.  

Have fun and be safe.
