by Joe Kowal


Do you know a lot about travel? Have you traveled enough to have developed a personal system or organizational plan for traveling? Is there any way that you could improve it? Are you prepared in the event of an emergency, or something else unexpected? If you were unsure about any of your answers, you should read the tips outlined below.

If you have a child, keep a color photo of him or her in your wallet in case they get lost. Losing a child is traumatic for any parent. It can happen to even the most diligent parents. Having a photo on you to share with authorities could mean the difference in whether or not your child is found quickly.

Find out as soon as possible whether you require a visa to enter the country you are travelling to. Because visas may take a while to be approved, apply for one long in advance of travel. If you do not take care of the paperwork, you will not be able to travel freely.

When you are in an unfamiliar area, be on guard for criminals acting as officials such as law enforcement. You should never give anyone your original passport no matter who they purport to be, or you could end up stranded in a strange land. If an officer or official asks you to come to their office, do so on foot. Never get into a car with a strange local.

When traveling, don't fold your clothes. Instead, roll them. When you roll your clothing, you will save a lot of room in your suitcase. When you are ready to unpack, just unroll your clothes and then fold them neatly before putting them away. By doing this, you should be able to reduce the number of bags you need for your excursion.

Give your dog or dogs a thorough brushing before you load them into the car for a trip. This helps to cut down on how much hair will blow around the car. Also be sure to include all necessities for your dog like bowls, leashes and clean up materials.

Inside your luggage, attach a tag or label with your name and contact information. If the luggage is lost and the outer tags get removed, the authorities can still figure out that the luggage is yours. You can't keep an eye on your luggage at all times, so this will help prevent loss.

If you are going to vacation at a National Park you should get a National Park season pass. It is relatively inexpensive, $50 total, and it gives you open access to all national parks for a year.

These will allow you to connect your computer to the television provided in your hotel room. Rather than renting or paying for films, you can use online streaming to watch the movies you would like.

Amusements parks and other attractions have options of printing tickets out online before you leave for your destination. Just avoiding the time you will wait in line makes up for the small online printing fee. If the park uses a timed entry system, you won't need to wait in line to enter, either.

No matter where your travels take you, these tips should help you with the planning process. Exploring new places and new cultures can be a great experience, so it's time to get out and start traveling!
