Are you about to embark on a new adventure somewhere in the world you have never been before? Then prepare yourself to go through a few travel frustrations. Everyone talks about how amazing it is to travel, but no one mentions the stress involved. So if you dream of having the perfect vacation, maybe you shouldn’t count the part when you deal with jet lag, spend hours waiting at the airport, or packing, especially if you are packing for more than one person. Don’t let these travel headaches get in the way of fun. Here a few simple ways to solve the five most common travel issues.
1. Miserable airport experience
When you book a flight, you are thinking, “ I will go to the airport near me a little early so I can go through all that process and get into the plane on time!”. Well, it’s good to be optimistic about it because you probably will end up dealing with the crowds, a lot of waiting around, and the plane will probably be late, so… This one feels like a must travel frustration that everyone experience, but there are a few ways to make it all bearable: always bring something fun to entertain you, whether a book or a game. You can also come a little hungry, so you waste time eating and watching Netflix or Youtube on your phone or computer.
That word alone can give you anxiety because you know you will forget something important or overpack. You will be struggling to carry that luggage around, and of course, end up paying extra fees for it, too. The good news is that the more you travel, the less of a travel frustration it becomes. Here are a few tips to help you improve your packing skills: Create a list of everything you want to take with you. Plan the items you will be packing in each bag in advance, and it’s better to put your entertainment kit (books, games, etc.) in your personal bag and keep the essentials in the carry-on bag. Look up some packing techniques to maximize space, like putting items in packing cubes and rolling clothes. Buy a few 100-ml containers to pack your liquid toiletries. Just leave as much as you can at home because you will not need nearly as much as you think.
