Travel party favor: Travel tips

In the RSVP card for my travel party I asked all the guests to reply with their favorite travel tip or recommendation. Here is what everyone came up with. Enjoy!

Kim & Danny Wrap nice and or wrinkle-prone clothing in plastic dry cleaning bags for wrinkle-free arrival at your desination. Drink 8 oz of water for every 1 hour of flight time (helps skin & jet lag!)
Lauren & Michael Melatonin for those long flights! Won’t leave you feeling loopy or groggy after arriving at your destination.
Beanie Linen/shoe bags–I buy these wherever I find them and have cute ones from Italy, Vietnam, South Africa + the USA. Not only do they keep my packing orderly, but they’re a lovely reminder of trips past!
Fé & Hector Luxury Home Rental in Paris in Opéra / Palais Royal: www.haveninparis.com/rental/StAugustin.php
Mitra & Matt For an authentic experience, for example, experiencing a particular neighborhood in Paris, use homewaway.com. Use Long Beach, Burbank or Ontario to avoid the hassle of LAX. Don’t forget: wherever you go, there you are.
Monique & Jay If there are sights you want to see or things you want to do, plan out a detailed itinerary in advance so you aren’t disappointed when you skip something because you didn’t allow time for it. But also include a day to be spontaneous and take recos from locals you meet in your destination.
Laura & Dan Favorite hotel: Shore Lodge, McCall Idaho. On the lake, in the mountains, 2-hour drive from Boise… come visit Idaho 🙂
Natalie & Eric Always pack patience, chapstick (Jack Black, mint!), my fluffy teddy bear, goggles, phone charger, band-aids and clean underwear.
Maddy & Justin Always research your travel spot before you get there and make an itinerary so you don’t miss anything–but–schedule in flex time and don’t be scared to stray from your plans, sometimes that’s when the best stuff happens!
Lindsey & Paul I always bring socks for the plane rides. Don’t be scared of tuk tuks–great way to see the city!
Kirsten & Adam Go vegetarian while traveling in China. Stay at the George IV once in your life for pure luxury and arrive in Paris via the Euro Star + leave from CDG airport. You can NEVER have enough nappies or food when traveling with children. Keep a journal, with so many memories–it’s hard to keep track.
Christina & Hugo The flight into Bhutan is simply breathtaking. Mosquito repellant–Jungle Juice, Skin So Soft (Avon), + Vitamin B1–best I’ve found. And don’t forget Mopidick in case one sneaks a munch.
Dana & Angad Check in early on Cathay as it increases your chance of an upgrade!
Jojo A great travel book: Evelyn Waugh’s “Scoop!”
Nick & Natasha Best once-in-a-lifetime hotel: Palazza Sasso in Ravello, Italy. Best hotel to keep going back to: Casa de Mita in Punta Mita, Mexico. Biking and cooking classes are a great way to get to know a place and its people. For flights, don’t forget to pack: earplugs, saline nasal spray, and a headphone splitter.
Willie Double check your airport of departure: BOS is not PVD.

  1. Had to add to this -always pack a change of clothes in your carry-on if you have checked-in baggage. Have heard way too many missing luggage stories. Also nowadays I always carry a digital luggage scale with me to avoid those pesky excess baggage fees.

  2. Such a cute idea… their notes make it very personal and practical.
