“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Tips for Stress-free Holiday Travel

 
Get your peace on Earth and avoid some seasonal travel stress with these tips:
 
Check all travel documents
Make sure you don’t end up presenting an expired passport at airport check-in, and be aware that some destinations require you to have it for at least six months prior to your flight date. Also, some destinations may require visas.
 
Label your luggage
Sure, airlines have that electronic tagging these days, but who do you think might lose your bags? That’s why you should label each piece with your home address AND your destination address. If your bag does disappear, it’s best to have an email or phone number on the label.
 
Carry your hotel name and address
And as long as your writing your hotel name and address anyway, put it on a card to stick in your wallet. That way you won’t be standing around looking like an awkward tourist at the terminal taxi rank, trying to guess which Hyatt you’re booked into. And consider taking your hotel reservation voucher to ensure a smooth and speedy check-in process.
