Tips for business (and frequent) travellers
* Children appreciate letters from the road
- use hotel stationery or free postcards to send them quick
* Twenty minute naps are essential - in a
taxi, on a plane or on a train.
* If you take prescription medicine, get
it refilled before you go - finding a pharmacy in a strange
town can be difficult. Take eye drops for tired eyes.
* Pack your shampoo and leaky items in a
plastic bag so you don't have to spend time cleaning items
that have exploded mid-flight.
* For a more restful sleep, don't eat just
before you go to bed.
* Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables.
* Try to adjust to the local time as soon
as possible - whatever it takes. Change your watch immediately.
* Keep your diet as consistent as possible.
* Eat breakfast in your room so the smells
of breakfast foods don't tempt you to overeat.
* Find some non-touristy spots - go local.
* Locate a nearby grocery and stock up on
healthy treats - it's better for you, and you save money.
* Unpack. It not only minimises wrinkles
but makes the hotel room more your own.
* Bring earplugs to combat unfamiliar noises
in your new surroundings.
· Make sure your hotel has a refrigerator.
Then you can save money--and eat healthier - by buying food
for your room.
* Search out an internet cafe and send email
* To dry clothes overnight, put them on a
coat hanger and hang them in the bathroom with the light
on. In the morning they should be dry enough to wear.
* Take a little package of washing powder.
It's cheaper and it's hard to find a small container when
travelling. A long cord is useful for a clothesline for
overnight drying. In emergencies, shampoo makes good washing
