Hello TVP readers! Rhonda from Belle in Bows here.
I can't even tell you how excited I was that S asked me to guest post for her while she is off traveling.
How lucky is she to be in Portugal? A country I have always wanted to visit!
S jet-setting got me to thinking about how much I absolutely love traveling, and a lot goes into it. Especially if you are traveling internationally.
Today, I wanted to give you some of my tips that I stick to when I travel.
**First and most importantly:
Moisturize and hydrate!
I cannot emphasize how important this step is when traveling. Especially when traveling by air. However, even if you are going by car these are still important. A lot of time passes where you may be sitting and not being active, it can be easy to forget to drink water! It is still vitally important. Also, don't forget your daily moisturizer. On days when you are traveling you may need to moisturize more often. Being on an airplane always makes my skin dry and feeling gross. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!
**Secondly, dress comfortably. I never understand when people get on a long flight wearing tight dresses and heels. Practicality beats fashion when traveling. I am not saying you have to wear sweatpants and a t-shirt, but I am not saying it's wrong either. Here is a sample of what I would wear when traveling.
There are some basic rules to attire when traveling. Dress in layers in case the temperature on the flight fluctuates from warm to cold. Simple shoes, I don't want to be behind you in line at security if it takes 5 minutes for you to take your shoes off. Minimal accessories, for the exact same reason as shoes.
**Next, a neck pillow.
I know, I know. Sometimes I too snicker at people with neck pillows, but trust me, it's worth it. If you forget this step you may wake up with an extremely sore neck. Or worse, with your head resting on your neighbor's shoulder. I would die.
**On a international flight I like to spend most of the trip sleeping. However, I need, and yes I mean need, coffee. I need this coffee just to put up with the amount of people I will encounter on any given trip. May be ironic but coffee will give me the patience I will need to not lose it over a grumpy flight attendant, a slowpoke in security, and/or a chatty neighbor.
These are some of my tips! Please, feel free to share some of your tips with me!
