When going on a trip, I`ve realized I have some travel rituals I keep repeating. It already starts the night before.
Charging all electronic devices
It`s good to have like a Kindle or Tablet aboard a long flight, as you might be finding yourself on a 9+ hours flight to the USA, like me recently on a Delta flight, where there is no personal entertainment and you have to make due with a small screen in the back of the plane. Trust me you`ll be thankful you can choose your own movies and actually see the screen using your Tablet.
I also always take this travel item with me.
At the Airport
My boyfriend laughed the first time I told him I need my time at the airport. I like being early, heaven forbid I get held up on my way to the airport and I`d miss my flight!
The advantage of being early at the airport is that it gives me the time to do my ‘airport rituals’ as he calls them. I like to browse the shops…there could always be something I forgot right? I buy a bottle of water, a magazine and a snack, sort of a plane survival kit.
At the Hotel
The first thing I check at the hotel is the WiFi, that`s probably because of my job. But I also checkout the bathroom, you can see a lot from the details in the bathroom: soft toilet paper, tissues and other amenities. I`ve noticed, the smaller the details, the better your stay will be. For example at the Shangri-La in Toronto, they even had a hair band in the bathroom for girls with long hair…such a small detail, but so convenient.
When coming back
What are your travel rituals?
