When you plan a trip, taking a digital camera that fits your trip is a good idea. You likely don’t want a camera with a rechargeable battery if you’re backpacking. In any case, take a digital camera that is quick to turn on and focus so you won’t miss the shot you want.

It’s important to tip the housekeeper and bell station well. The bell boy should get a bare minimum of $1/bag, and housekeeping should get at least a couple dollars a day. That ensures that the people in charge of your service are happy and helpful.
Sleeping pills can help get you through a long flight. It is often hard to get much rest on airplanes, given the cramped seating, machine noise and people milling about.
