Traveling Tips

Celestine Griffin

Traveling this summer? We've got you covered!

  • Pack a hat - protect yourself from the sun and bad hair days.

  • Get your laundry done before you start packing.

  • Make your own First Aid kit - some important items are band aids, aspirin for headaches, hydrocortisone cream, decongestant (useful when landing), Nyquil (to help you with your jet lag).

  • Bring a reusable water bottle - this will help Mother Earth and your bank account.

  • Avoid bringing clothes that require ironing.

  • If you are staying with someone, bring them a little something - a card, chocolates, something to show your appreciation.

  • Do not pack something you have never worn before.

  • Bring tennis shoes.

  • McDonald's is everywhere - but make sure you try the local specialties, too.

  • Pain is beauty when it comes to certain outfits - however, suspend this motto when traveling.

  • If you choose to visit a museum, do not be shy - ask the staff for guidance.

  • Carry your wallet anywhere but your back pockets.

  • Pack something when you think of it - you will forget it otherwise.

  • Bring photocopies of your passport and keep them in a different bag than your actual passport.

  • Dry shampoo will be your best friend.

  • Dryer sheets are super handy - your suitcase will smell fresh and they eliminate static from your hair.

  • Depending on where you travel, bring tissues in case toilet paper is not accessible.

  • Do not pack it if you absolutely cannot lose it.

  • Wear sunscreen no matter the temperature.

  • Border control can be awful - just grin and bear it.

  • If a restaurant has different menus for different languages, the food is probably not the best.

  • Try not to sleep in.

  • Beware of free public Wi-Fi!

  • No matter where you are, do not leave valuables in your car - even in the trunk.

  • Learn a few phrases in the local language - sign-up for a travel class at the Beverly Hills Lingual Institute!
