Travel Tips
(DETM February Newsletter)
Dear Dave,
I was looking back at some of my previous newsletters, and over 6 years ago, I had one entitled Dave’s Travel Tips. It was a long list of travel tips from when I was traveling by air for business and personal trips monthly. Now the former irritations of frequent business travel seem like a vague memory, but I’ll still share with you a few of my favourite tips.
bullet WEAR SLIP-ON SHOES: As it makes it easier going through security
bullet WALK AT THE AIRPORT: It is tempting to sit down at your gate when you are through security, but I try to walk the length of the terminal if I have time before my flight. I certainly can't walk much on the flight.
bullet SITTING DOWN QUICKLY: Have a light, fabric grocery bag packed in your carry-on. At the gate, I put my ear phones, neck pillow, iPad, water bottle, sweater/light sweatshirt in it. When I get to my seat, I can easily and quickly put my carry-on in the over head bin, while throwing the light bag in my seat, with everything I may need for the flight.
What are your favourite travel tips?
This is photo is from my first flight when I was about 8 month old, landing in Toronto. Yes, that is my father carrying me.
Stay safe and strong.
