Keep Calm and Travel Smart

It’s almost Thanksgiving time and you know what that means! No, it’s not the glorious turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes, you are thinking of, its holiday travel. Yes, everyones favorite thing. With all of this excitement, it can overwhelm anyone. But don’t worry. I have a few tips and tricks to keep anyone sane.

Pack smart 

warm to cold 

If you are like me, you are an out-of-state kid who is going home to a warm climate and coming back to a cold one. If this is the case, pack all your summer clothes and bring back all your long wool coats. This will not only make room in your closet in the dorm room, but put clothes in your closet at home for when you come home in the spring/summer.

cold to cold

For the out-of-staters going from a cold climate to a warm climate, the process is a little more tricky. Definitely bring all your summer clothes that you have in your dorm room back, but only bring one or two “heavy” coats for the holidays and bring the rest of your cold weather stuff back to the dorms to survive the weather


Be productive at the airport 

Airports around the holidays are to malls on Black Fridays. HELL. The lines are long and everyone is antsy to get home. Get to the airport around 2 hours early. This gives you plenty of time to check any baggage that you have and go through the security check line. Depending on the length of your flight, either buy the wireless internet package or bring a light textbook and study. Even if you eventually fall asleep on the plane, at least you spent some of your time wisely and by all means, catch up on your sleep.
