Coming home from a vacation can be one of the most disappointing things a person or couple have to do after a few days or weeks in paradise. The trip home for some can be a nightmare while for others it is welcome as they missed being at home. Leaving different places especially international destinations will take a bit of game planning. The following are tips for packing up and coming home from vacation.
Arrange a taxi or shuttle to the airport a few days in advance as missing a flight can be devastating. Some destinations only have one flight going to your destination a day or even per week. International destinations should be planned more thoroughly as arriving to the airport late can lead you to miss your flight while going through customs. Avoid having anything in your bags that you know you shouldn’t have, they give you a list on your way that you should reference when packing.
There might be someone who took care of a dog or cat for you while you were gone. In other cases it could be the children so it is important to show your gratitude for the help. Edible Arrangements are a great option for this and now they are more affordable than ever as Groupon has coupons for orders you might want to put in. This can be seen as a bribe so the next time you go out of town the same deal can be worked out. Many family members will not take money but nobody will refuse food!
Eating before getting to the airport is important as some of these places tend to gouge the prices. Airport food is not always the best either so even taking something to eat while in line at security is a better option. Packing small snacks is also advised as you never know when a delay might happen due to an unforeseen circumstance.
As you can see leaving a destination can be just as stressful as arriving. Plan appropriately to reduce your stress on the days of travel as this can drain you when you return to work. Enjoy your travels and don’t leave anything important in your hotel room!
