Whether you are traveling by boat, train, plane or car, there are lots of things to think about when you are taking a trip. Get out your notepad and get ready to write these tips down, because we’re about to tell you how you can take a great trip without the headaches. Before traveling make sure you get enough sleep. For many people, the few days before their vacation are filled with either stress or excitement, sometimes leading to a lack of sleep. When this happens, you tend to ‘crash’ when you reach your destination, meaning that you waste vacation time because you are already exhausted. A good night’s sleep before traveling will mean that you arrive invigorated and upbeat. Do not bother wrapping gifts. A lot of people buy small souvenirs when traveling. If you are planning on bringing something back to a loved one, don’t bother wrapping it before you return home. On the off chance that your bag is inspected, it will have to be unwrapped anyway. Planning to keep children happy and occupied while traveling will prevent a lot of headaches for everyone. Set aside special back-packs for any child accompanying you on your venture and […]

Is Traveling A Part Of Your Life? Try These Ideas!

The idea of traveling evokes many feelings in people. Whether it is for business or pleasure, there is always some level of stress involved. Don’t let stress get to you and stop you from enjoying your trip. Read the tips in this article for a safe trip filled with fun. When flying, always have a bottle of water handy. Drinking plenty of fluids will ensure that your body stays hydrated during the flight. The air inside the cabin is extremely dry, playing havoc with your body. Don’t substitute alcohol or caffeine for water, as this can make dehydration worse. Maintain a happy attitude while traveling. Things can get rather tense at airports. Tempers run high. The people who work there often have a hard time of things. Keeping a positive demeanor about you, at least outwardly, will likely improve your experience. A negative attitude will seldom get you anywhere.

Practical Travel Tips To Make Life On The Road Easier

If you have ever had one of those trips where everything went wrong and you were totally scatterbrained, we have a few tips for you. This article is just what you need to get your vacation head on straight and plan the trip of your dreams: one that is hassle free. A GPS navigation system is absolutely vital for any long-distance car trip. If your car did not come with a factory navigation system, you should seriously consider buying one before hitting the open road. GPS helps you find alternative routes when closures, traffic or accidents close the road ahead. GPS can even keep you out of danger if you encounter emergency conditions. When planning an overseas trip or any kind of dangerous outing, check with your health insurer to see what you’re covered for. Most health insurance companies will not cover injuries incurred during a wide variety of dangerous activities, and many will not cover health costs incurred overseas. You might need to purchase special traveler’s insurance for your health. If you are planning on traveling in the coming months, keep your eye out for promotional deals online through various discount travel sites. By signing up through a discount […]

Adman Rich Silverstein cycles through life – Pilates, Prada

Biking is a kind of meditation for Rich Silverstein, co-chairman and partner of the award-winning advertising agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners – known for the “Got Milk?” commercials, among many others. Having recently moved to San Francisco, his new morning routine includes a quick ride to see his beloved bridge. For his commute about the city, Silverstein sometimes rides his electric bicycle made by Specialized Bikes, which enables him to zip along faster than the cabs. Every morning he cleans his bicycle and drinks a cup of Peet’s coffee – caffeine being “the drug of cyclists,” he says. Aside from a chance meeting on the Golden Gate Bridge, you might run into him at On Cue Pilates on Sacramento Street, but that’s about it: “I don’t go to grocery stores, dry cleaners or florists,” he says, “but occasionally you’ll find me at Prada.” During his workweek, Silverstein finds solace in a roster of classic restaurants near his California Street offices.
