Pre-Vacation Tips (2Months Before the Travel)

Do These Things 2-3 Months Prior to Vacation.
  • Check out a Baby Sitter (If you will leave your baby). On our upcoming travel my husband and I decided to bring with us 1 yr old daughter. First, because we can't just leave her to our moms, they are busy with their works. But, if you have your parents to watch over your kids or someone you can trust then that would be better. Tell them ahead so that they would anticipate having your kids in their daily routines and activities.
  • Bring your first aid kit. Not the entire kit just a few medicines like pain reliever for headaches, toothaches, stomachaches, wounds. It won't get so much of your baggage space.
  • Try to Find Maps. Print a destination and route maps if your travel includes road trips. Learn about the places you'll travel through and check out any "must see" attractions along the way.
  • Prepare yourself to Be Active. Don't be a 'Kill Joy'! You travel to enjoy and have fun so try to be active in just a few days. Try to walk, swim, dance or do whatever floats your boat. The better shape you are in the more you will enjoy your vacation, Exercise first!
  • Make reservations now. You may want to do accommodation arrangements now and make an itinerary of your day to day activities so you can sort things out and check the prices. The earlier the better so you will know how much expected or estimated amount that you are going to spend for your vacation.
  • Bring only travel sized products. The hotels has free toiletries but I am sure it will be only good for 2 people. I suggest you to buy small packages of your 'must have' items like shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap (would be better for packing & unpacking), gel (for men),underarm deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush (with cover), mouthwash, dental floss, makeup remover, antibacterial hand gel, alcohol, sewing kit, wet wipes, lotion and all kinds of other stuffs that you need. For the babies try to pack separate things for them. Remember you can also buy things that you need on the places that you will go so don't stress yourself out too much on packing just like diapers, don't bring the whole pack of 20's it will just get a huge space of your baggage, you can buy them anywhere. Always remember, there's always department store whenever you go.
  • Discuss with your travel buddies about your upcoming vacation. Throw different ideas about what to do and where to go and the FINALIZE.
These are just but few tips but would really be helpful to you. Check you my personal blog Super Spree.

Enjoy, Experience and Explore when Traveling

I love to travel! I think the best thing about traveling is that it allows me to spend quality time with my friends or family members without thinking so much stress and work. It is a way of escaping my busy life, online tasks, selling stuffs online and booking domestic and international tickets for my customers. A time for me to become a customer too! It is a time to unwind, enjoy, experience and explore...

It is the experience that makes me love traveling so much! I love taking a lot of photos and doing 'selfies' during our travel. I cannot resist tasting a lot of new delicacies and foods in various restaurants but depending on our budget of course. It is also the time to learn a few words from another dialect and a chance of meeting new people and another culture.

Most of us were looking forward for the scenic spots that the place has when we travel. We love seeing jaw dropping views and also feeling the warm accommodation of the people around. Exploring the new place can be very enjoyable and can also be tiring. We never feel tired during our travel but we do get tired after we travel.

Traveling may also be stressful especially for girls. We need to prepare all the necessary things to bring for certain places. For budget travelers like me, it is a must that I have to get to know the place first before our travel. I will make an itinerary and list everything like the fares, the restaurants, the inn and the activities that we are going to do when we get there. 

For other people, they do not necessarily have an affordable vacation because for them 'a trip is best enjoyed if they spend more'. But for me, it is not really the place that matters most, the buddies or the people traveling with me matters most. As long as I enjoy the whole trip with them, I will no longer remember the discomforts, delays and other happenings that would give me a bad mood.

Just always remember these three things when traveling... ENJOY, EXPERIENCE and EXPLORE!!!
