Getting Ready to Travel

Getting Ready for Travel


My flight is coming soon, and I starting to make preparations.  I should have all of my grading completed tonight, so that I can start packing.  I have already printed off my itenerary for the flight.   Here are some other preparations that I have made.

Hotel Room

I reserved a hotel room next to the airport, so that I can relax before the flight goes out.   My flight goes out at 7am on Christmas Eve, and I am NOT a morning person.  I will need help getting to the airplane on time, and being close to the airport will help.  An acquaintance of mine thought it was a waste of money, but I believe they are just extremely cheap.

Medical Information


  1. I will contact Medic Alert and make sure my medical information is up to date.  My Medic Alert necklace can be easily taken off, which will be convenient when going through security.
  2.  I have already filled my prescription, so that I will have plenty of medicine on the trip.  My medicine will go in my personal bag, so that it is not out of my sight.  Just in case security has questions about the medicine, I will have my neurologist’s phone number just in case.  I am not a frequent traveler, so I’m trying to be extra cautious.

Music and Devices

Due to the fact that traveling can be stressful, I often travel with items that can help reduce stress.  For example, I bring my iPod and listen to relaxing music for most of the flight.  Most airplanes have issues with cell phones, but not iPods.


I have been so stressed out lately that I am really looking forward to this trip.  What do you think?  Have I missed anything?
