It’s a joy to be able to travel to new places, explore different cultures and visit the many wonders of the world. Traveling broaden our horizon, widen our perspective of life and most importantly, it could help us relax.

Before living, advice your neighbor or other relatives about your where around during the planned trip. Be sure that all house equipments are turned off and have the doors locked. Switch on the answering machine to keep track of incoming calls.

You not only want a vacation, you NEED a vacation. You should get away and repair yourself. If you’re retired it doesn’t mean you stop working. Sometimes you’re doing even more than before and wonder when you even had time to hold down a job. Everyday chores and home life can take a lot out of a person. And if you’re still working that 9 – 5 job, you REALLY need a vacation. You need time away from cell phones, computers, co-workers, everyday life and just take a breather.

Ask yourself: “What is the purpose of my trip?” If you are on that trip for just a day or two and your travel itinerary will be jam-packed, don’t bother staying in a plush hotel with complete facilities as you won’t have time to use them anyway. The rule of thumb is to stick to the essentials. Why eat in an expensive restaurant when one of the budget food joints can offer you the same local cuisine? Why stay in a very expensive hotel if you’ll be out and about the whole time?

When traveling with children, bring along a few over the counter medications. Even if everyone is healthy when you leave, a stomach bug or headache can hit at any time.
