Whether you’re going to see those annoying in-laws or are taking an Alaskan cruise, you want to enjoy the ride. Take the time to plan your vacation according to this advice for a truly relaxing experience.
Make sure you are prepared to take care of yourself, even on longer flights. Bringing a blanket, pillow and headphones with you is a good idea. Additionally, it is a good idea to bring something to snack on.
Take extras of anything you absolutely need on your trip, like eyeglasses or contacts. If you happen to loose your contacts, or glasses, then you will at least have your backup pair with you. Make sure your extra pair is not in your carry on or handbag, as this luggage can get stolen.
