Some Travel Tips

Carry on luggage
The carry-on should include your "must haves“ such as: medications, toiletries, emergency contacts and travel documents, passport or other ID, whatever else you can't live without.

Keep a standard list of travel items on file
You can add/delete as the season or occasion indicates, but at least you'll have a complete record from which to choose.

Identify your luggage with some personalized touch.
It could be a colorful tag, luggage strap, or even spray paint a small design on the side...that certainly won't get torn off!

Stay hydrated while traveling
Experts recommend drinking one cup of water for every hour in flight. You can carry a small plastic water bottle with you through security and fill it at a water fountain after you pass through.

Take small exercise breaks during your flight
Be sure to get up and walk every hour or so to keep the blood circulating in your lower extremities. If you can't get up, then at least stretch in your seat and flex your feet and move your legs.

Avoid jetlag by curtailing alcohol on board eat light meals and only when hungry and drink plenty of water.
When the flight departs, set your watch to the destination time zone to begin acclimating to the change. When you arrive, avoid taking a nap, which only prolongs jetlag. Instead get some fresh air by taking a walk or choose activities fitting to the new time frame

Be mindful of staying healthy as you travel
Be sure to wash your hands frequently and keep a liquid antibacterial handy when needed. Avoid others who appear ill. If you are not feeling well, don't leave home without consulting your doctor.
