I’m a day late on this one, but the topic is certainly appropriate right now – be patient when travelling for the holidays. If you’re driving further than across town, make sure you have at least a quarter tank of gas at all times, be patient, and be very very careful. As we drove home last night, we ended up behind a very obviously inebriated driver. The driver very nearly caused at least one accident, and the police were slow to respond (if they ever did – we lost the car after about 10 minutes and never did see the police).
If you’re flying during the holiday season, make sure to allow plenty of extra time at the airport in case of long lines – and check your flight status before you leave for the airport. Be prepared for flight delays and be prepared to lose your luggage. If I’m not on my way home and I’m not traveling with just a carry-on, I like to carry at least a change of clothes in my carry-on. It’s also important to keep any medications you need with you instead of checking them.
Hope your travels are safe and without delay!
