Before you head to the airport for the vacation you needed to have for a long time, you make sure you have all your guidebooks, inflatable neck pillow, and spare underwear (just in case). But are you completely ready for a possible disaster that could ruin your entire trip?
Let’s face it, disasters are ought to happen from time to time, and there is always a possibility they occur when we are not even close to home to control the situation quickly.
Those disasters are not really your fault, but to avoid them completely, you need to plan your trip very well, and mostly, you need to be introduced to those disasters and learn how to prevent/deal with them.
After all, that spare underwear that you thought would be useful will not really make your pain better if you break your leg surfing in Costa Rica.
So before you leave, make sure your excitement doesn’t prevent you from taking all the appropriate steps, like packing a copy of your birth certificate and labeling your luggage.
