Traveling is about what you make of it. Being prepared is important. Five tips for efficient traveling are: 1. Bring an empty water bottle to get through security. You can fill it up after going through and not spend $10 for bottled water in the terminal. Airports have filtered water these days! (see image). 2. Keep your medicines with you at all times. Do not check them in! 3. Have your boarding pass and Driver’s license or passport within easy reach. After going through security, put your ID up where you always keep it so you do not lose it! The boarding pass will be needed at the gate so have that ready before boarding the plane. 4.For Heaven’s sake, buy a carry on suitcase with wheels that rotate and turn easily. My suitcase moves without having to lean it on its side. I find this a great asset for the ole back! 5. Be very nice to the person sitting near you. Who knows they may have to put an oxygen mask on you! But I hope not!!!!!
