for a Holiday?
So, itís finally time for a well-deserved holiday but you have no idea where
you want to go. There is so much to see, so much to do and you want this to be
the holiday of holidays. Where is it youíve always thought about going? Whatís
that one place you canít get out of your mind? Is it a beach resort in the
Bahamas? Maybe youíve always wanted to go on an African safari. If you have
the means, then start planning now. With the right preparation, you can make
that holiday dream come true.
Once youíve decided where you plan to holiday, do some research on
accommodations, flights, taxis or car rentals for availability and price. Once
youíve established the best deals, book your reservations as soon as possible.
Check with the airlines on any restrictions so you wonít be taken by surprise
if you have to relinquish any of your possessions.
Make a list of what you will need on your trip. This includes everyday items
such as toothpaste, shampoo, and feminine products. These are things we use
daily and can easily forget if we wait until the last minute. What is the
weather like where youíre going? Will it be hot, cold, or rainy? Prepare for
every possible weather eventuality. You may not realise that some very warm
places also have very cool nights.
If you are travelling outside the country, be sure your passport and all other
identification is in order. Find out if certain shots are recommended or
required for your trip and how far in advance you will need to get them. It
might be a good idea to brush up on local customs and laws, as well. Perhaps
you will need a translation dictionary which can really come in handy when in
a communication bind.
Lastly, get your affairs in order well in advance of your holiday. Be sure
youíve completed all you need to do at home or work several days before you
depart. If you have pets, be sure to make arrangements for their care and any
special instructions. Ask a neighbour to watch your home and take in your mail.
Water the plants just before you go if you have no one to do it for you.
Enjoy your holiday to the fullest. With the right preparation, you wonít have
to worry about anything but getting that perfect tan.
