The Final Countdown
There is much to do before leaving for Italy in less than four days! First, I need to notify my bank and my telephone provider that I will be out of the country. It is important for my bank and telephone service to know that I am out of the country and to ensure that my credit cards still work. Second, and most obvious, I need to pack. In order to pack wisely, I need to monitor the expected weather in Italy. When packing, it is important not to over-pack. Using Dr. Bunn’s helpful excel template, I was able to list out what clothes I would wear each day of our trip. This allowed me to pack only what was necessary and help restrict my tendency of packing too many clothes. Another important travel tip is to get a good night’s sleep. During your travel day, it is extremely important to be well-rested. Being well-rested leads to a sharper mind and you will have a lot of energy. Along with being well-rested, it is critical that you eat a healthy and well-rounded breakfast. Eating a well-rounded breakfast is essential to a successful travel adventure. A healthy breakfast further sharpens the mind and allows one to make good decisions. Another great travel tip is to arrive to the airport early. When arriving to the airport, you never know how long the line at security may be. Planning ahead of time gives one the security to be confident in their travels. It is better to have more time to spare than to be late and potentially miss your flight. All in all, a successful travel trip is based on four crucial factors. They include planning ahead of time, packing wisely, and getting a good night’s rest and healthy breakfast. I am very excited and thrilled to be travelling to Italy and can not wait for the adventures that this trip will soon produce.
