Things I learned while traveling…

1. Always bring your own washcloth (and towel)
2. Even if you have an electric toothbrush that makes you feel like you don’t need dental coverage, carry a manual toothbrush with you. It’s also a great idea to keep it in your carry-on…with some toothpaste.
3. Take a shower before you get on the plane, train, in the car, or start walking. You never know what’s going to happen.
4. If you stay at someone’s house, buy them some groceries, a bottle, a plant, anything. Just contribute to their space.
5. Have a decent pair of headphones.
6. Start untying or removing your shoes at the beginning of the security gate check in. Everyone will love you for it.
7. Two words: Hand sanitizer.
8. Keep a snack. A snickers, a granola bar, or a pack of sour skittles work best.
9. Carry cash. At least some. “I only have a card is not an excuse anymore.”
10. Keep a roll of tape on you if you can. I know, I know it sounds like MacGuvery or really MacGrouder, but tape CAN save your life.
11. Carry your carry-ons in the hand that is opposite of your boarding pass and furthest away from the gate agent. Maybe she won’t notice that you have two cameras, a bookbag, a hat box and a carry-on.
12. Three words: Frequent flier miles.
13. Call ahead to your friends in whichever city you are going to. It takes people about a week to get “free” or decide that it is okay for them to skip Glee and come out and meet you for a drink or three.
14. Charge your phone as often as possible.
15. Leave a 20% tip if it’s good 10% if it’s bad.
16. Two parting words: Baby wipes.

–See you in the skies.
