1. Keep printed copies of all tickets and accommodations
2. Always carry a bag for all documents plus laptop.
3. Don’t keep all cash+cards in a pocket or wallet. Divide and keep them into two different places so if one is lost. I should not be helpless.
4. Carry a book
5. Carry Snacks and chocolates

Always have at least a change of undies in your hand luggage, preferably a complete outfit change in case of an unexpected stop over.

And I think if you go to a country where the water quality is different that it is no harm to have one or two of those filtering pills with you. If you ever get stranded it might be nice to risk drinking to survive, knowing you have something to fight of parasites.

Travel light is the mantra. Our travel will be comfortable if we carry less luggage. I always keep my valuables, ticket, ID etc in a belted pouch which I can carry on my person. For short travels, I always carry my water and snacks. I usually don't read unless it is air travel. I try to enjoy the scenic beauty of the terrain be it train travel or car travel.

Whenever I travel to a new place, I do a complete research on the internet about it.
I make sure to carry essential medications with me.
Except for some memorabilia, I don't really shop for anything in the new place.
I take loads of pictures......that's something I cannot resist :)

I make sure my travel documents are up to date. This will include my passport, tickets, Hotel booking details and other relevant documents.
I make sure to call the hotel at the destination in advance regarding my arrival and try to arrange airport pickup by the hotel itself.
I always try to make it very early to the airport. I am more comfortable this way than rushing things.
Whenever I get time, I try to learn about the destination, especially places of interest, convenience of travel, and few phrases of local language which might come useful.

I am not very meticulous in my travel plans. As soon as I feel I need to take off, I just pack my bags and go away. So no strict rules ...... just a carefree bird in flight:):)

I always say I would do this, but then I totally do not research it. I am so bad at this. But I should do it !

Oh wow, TripAdvisor, I forgot they existed.

My tip would be: bring as little as possible. If you want 5 shirts, 2 is fine. You can always buy a new one locally or wash it.
