My Top Travel Tips
I am really excited to share today's post with you!
In the past 8 years we opted for traveling internationally at least once if not twice a year. We started traveling with our kids since they were 6 months old.
If its just me traveling with the kids, or if Justin is joining us, I always asked about what the tips and tricks to us traveling.
I decided to share what what WE do and what I believe is the best way for us to travel. Hopefully it helps you guys as well!
Plan in advance
Full disclaimer.. We do plan things for our travels, but most of the time those plans don't go accordingly. We really like to try our best and be prepared.
2. Pack an extra change of clothes in carry on
This one is a must for our family. Having extra clothes in your carry on really helps when you have to spend the night at the airport like we did the last time we flew. Our luggages did not follow us, luckily we had clothes in our carry ons!
Snacks, snacks and more snacks is ALWAYS a good idea. I usually grab gallon ziplock bags
and pack them full with the snacks that the kids love. I usually go for the snacks that the kids love but dont eat very often.
4. Download the app of the company you are traveling with
This is just to stay in the known with what is going on with your flight. It is nice to get notified with any updates.
5. Empty Water bottles
I just recently started doing this, but bringing water bottles prevents us from getting super expensive airport water. We just fill up either at water stations or on the plane, and the water bottles keep our water colder longer.
6. Pack a meal
We make sandwiches at the house and take them on the flight. You never know when you are going to get hungry and some flights only provide a snack.
7. iPads with headphones
To be honest our kids get bored on 8-12 hour flights. This is a great way to keep them entertained for at least some of that time. But we also bring portable chargers to help keep the tables alive longer.
You just need wipes to wipe down, clean up and refresh!
9. Wear cozy clothes
You can find us traveling in the most coziest sweatsuits and sneakers.
Just do it! The ride will be over soon!
Hope this helps!
