Trips are fun but they can be stressful to prepare for. Especially if its a long trip because there is way more things you have to prepare. You have to get all your things together to pack and complete any errands. If you have pets you have to make sure they’re taken care of. You might have to make photo copies of your passport for an international trip and other things.
My trip to Seattle is short but it’s coming up and I need to start preparing. Some of the first things I do before a trip are:
- Errands: I will pay all bills and complete other errands before my trip. So, I don’t have worry about it when I am on my trip.
- Take care of my cat: I have a cat named Mocha and I make sure she is taken care of. I can leave her alone for a couple days with enough food and water and a clean litter. However, if its more than 4 days I ask someone to check in on her.
- Pack: I usually pack a day or two before my trip. This also consists of doing laundry, so I have clothes to pack. Since, I am going to Seattle I am going to pack for both warm and cold weather.
- Check in: The day before my flight, I will check in. For southwest, the earlier you check in the better boarding time you get.
There are just some things I do to prepare for a trip. It is different for me when I have an international trip because those trips are usually longer than a couple days. Also, I need to take more things with me. Even though it can be stressful to set up and prepare for a trip, once you’re at your destination its all worth it.
