Travel is a strategic activity. Proper planning and preparation could be the difference between losing luggage at the airport or paying absurd cab fares in your location or site. One of the best ways to stay ready or prep for domestic or international travel is by creating a checklist.
A travel checklist is a great tool to overcome feeling overwhelmed or unprepared for your travel. It is important to go over your list at least three times in the weeks before you take off. As someone who travels internationally and domestically with my family, I also have to account for my children’s needs, this means that my planning must be attentive and nuanced . Children’s travel needs can range from allergy medications to a “favorite blouse” or swimsuit. Believe it or not, one of the worst ways to start a vacation is forgetting something important.
Organizing your individual and family schedule with tools like wunderlist, google drive and cloud can improve your comfort level. But having apps on the go is even better, and can curate a seamless travel experience if you plan things the right way.
Lifehacker has noted some of the best tools to plan out your travel. Here is a great list to start off with:
