Travel Resolutions



How many of us make New Year's Resolutions...and then totally forget about them? Or maybe you think you'll make some this year...and all of a sudden it's February.

Well here's a few you may be able to make...and keep this year. After all they relate to travel. So how hard should this be?

Get a passport. If you don't have one, now would be a great time to apply for one. Canada, Mexico and much of the Caribbean now require a passport. If you have one, check to see if yours is close to expiring. Some countries won't let you travel to them or back to the US if it expires within six months of your travel date.

Learn 10 phrases. A few simple phrases can make your life easier and earn you a smile. Grab a pocket sized phrase book and practice a few like "thank you", "please",or "excuse me".

Upgrade your travel gear. Get a new piece of luggage and learn to pack it lightly. Look for some of the new light weight ones and maybe try a color other than black.

More tomorrow...bet you can't wait.
