What To Do At/For Home Before A Trip


    Well it's almost time to get on a plane again for my 2nd international trip this year, but this one is gonna be a big one, I am going to Italy for 6 weeks with layover trips to Iceland and Denmark. I thought this would be a good time to go over what to do for trips over one week. So, here's a rough check list:


  • Book all flights/lodging if applicable, this particular trip I've only booked the beginning and end to travel around more freely in the middle. 
  • Obtain all necessary Visa's if applicable
  • Medications if applicable 
  • Pack your bags, duh
  • Make travel notifications for you bank cards or credit cards you will use on the trip
  • Have a little bit of foreign currency before you leave in case you can't find an ATM right away at your destination
  • House keys, personally I don't like to travel with them, so I make arrangements to keep them with someone at home, it's also a good idea if you live solo to give a copy to a friend just in case.
  • Get a pool or yard guy to take care of pool/yard while gone.
  • Unplug car battery for extended trips, anything over 3 weeks I'd unplug the battery.
  • Verify with work before you leave that all days scheduled to be off have been approved
  • Leave photocopies of your passport with a friend or family member
  • Leave an itinerary with a friend or family member
  • Make arrangements if you are taking classes for the time off
  • Verify that your tickets have global entry and/or TSA Pre check if you have it
  • Secure transportation to the airport, and have a great trip! :)
