My tips

I feel now that I have done a fair amount of travelling so here are my tips....

1. Hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer. You never know when the bathrooms (or lack of bathrooms) won't have it.

2. Kleenex in a small package. For the same reason above.

3. GPS (although it is pricy). I don't know how we would have driven in Europe without it!

4. Learn the basics phrases of the countries you are visiting. It makes a difference!

5. Make the most of everything. For example, instead of bringing 2 skirts get a reversible skirt!

6. Roll your clothes in your suitcase. It makes a huge difference.

7. Good walking shoes with good insoles!

8. Prepare to pay for things you won't expect: toll roads and bathrooms (yes, you have to pay to use them in Europe even if they are crappy! No pun intended).

9. Bring a purse that can go across your body in case there are some pick-pocketers.

10. Prepare your eyes...there is so much porn everywhere else in the world! You will not believe some of the things I have seen! This is not only in Europe. I saw some nasty stuff in Ecuador too.

11. Last but not least.... McDonald's is your friend. You know you can trust the food! ( I am so uncultured, I know!)

So true! McDonald's is a life saver when you are in some of those countries. Looks like you guys are having fun.
