Be it a vacation or business trip, the secret for comfortably travelling is dressing light.
a. Shirt – tucked or untucked, jeans or khakis, and slip-on footwear
b. Party dresses, shorts, and T-shirts if vacationing
c. Avoid woollens, tight jeans, and warm clothing (unless you heading to Siberia)
Ever wondered about what is the secret behind those amazing selfies taken by people who travel? Yes, they travel light. And also they segregate their luggage smartly.
No need to tuck all your belongings in one large suitcase, you can smartly divide your belongings into 3 or 4 bags.
Avoid more bags to prevent confusion, luggage loss, and long waits at airports.

Unexpected medical expenses
Trip delay or cancellation
Cost of emergency evacuations

Post your Presence

Keep it Posted, and let your friends know where you are, what you are doing?
Unless you have Sherlock Holmes for your rescue, it is advisable to post your presence.
