Having lived in the Western United States my whole life, I have found the example of the European traveler to be quite informative. I believe that when Europeans travel to the United States they actually see more of the country than we residents do. I like to see all sorts of things in a city, but I know that sometimes the free stuff can be the best stuff, so I definitely research those when I’m planning. It can help your dollars go further when you mix in free and cheap attractions (like museums and parks and squares) to your itinerary, plus you might see some things that regular tourists overlook. Some of those things have been more memorable to me than other things we’ve shelled out big bucks for. I suggest also asking friends on social media for suggestions.
If you belong to a church or religious organization, this may be a great way for you to spend a week to a month in a new place sharing the beliefs you are passionate about—essentially for free. I have been to Belize, Peru, Dominican Republic, and in a round about way India, on these types of trips.
But first, we ought to get some idea of what’s out there before we get aboard a galaxyship and step on the accelerator. Andromeda, it turns out, is a radiation hazard. It has long been regarded as the most obvious destination for the first intergalactic voyage. I am calling that into question. Maybe Triangulum is a better destination. Maybe Maffei is a better destination. I think we’ll visit Snickers or the Magellanic Clouds as a warm-up for the real power trips. Just like we visited the moon before we set our sights on Mars.
Fact #3: Many pharmacists will mail you your medication for no additional cost. If you happen to be traveling to an area where a local pharmacy is not available (not sure where that would be these days…but just in case!) then call your home pharmacy and ask them if they will refill and mail you your medication. Remember to give them your correct address…or they may mail it to your home!
One of the great and unique characteristics of the Travel Baby backpack is the diaper dispenser that can hold up to 16 diapers at one time. The diapers stay clean and neat (no more scrunched up ones), and are readily available, even when you need to store various sizes. And when you get onto the plane, the bag fits under all the airplane seats tried so far even when it is packed full.
When I packed my suitcases for my trip to Nepal, I included lots of shorts and a couple of pairs of jeans, but I rarely used any of them, instead buying inexpensive and more appropriate clothing during my stay. The shorts I’d packed were too short for what’s considered acceptable, especially for women, in Nepal, and the jeans were often too warm and, again, not the best choice if you want to follow local custom more closely.
