    Before you go somewhere make sure to call your credit card company and let them know when and where you will be. This can save a lot of trouble. On one long driving trip my card was froze because it showed purchase of gas in 3 states in 2 days (which were legit). Would not be an issue if I told them ahead of time

    The internet is so helpful for travellers. You can stop your mail on the USPS website. Visitors bureaus offer sample itineraries for the cities so you can maximize the gotta-see-gotta-do of their locals.

    If you exercise, save nearly worn out exercise clothes, socks etc. Toss them in your suitcase at the time when you’d throw them away. Take them on vacation, use them one more time and throw them away there. Saves room in the suitcase for your return trip. Saves burden of sweaty (and for me, nasty clothes that wait a week or more to be laundered).

    I’ll go to Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Miami (Kendall), FL
