Holiday Travel Time Has Arrived! Need A Packing Tip?

“Nothing’s worse than a stressful day of travel. By definition, your vacation should be as chill as possible. The last thing you want to do is overpack. After all, a giant bag will put a wrench in the whole easygoing-stroll-through-the-streets-of-Havana thing. But if you’re going to be away for more than a short weekend, you’ll need to pack a few changes of clothes, at least. The simple solution is—no surprise—an old army trick. We say, if it’s good enough for those guys, it should be good enough for you.”

Rolling skills come in handy for more than just sushi and burritos!

To save space in your luggage:

  • Smooth out your shirt
  • Fold up the bottom of the shirt by two inches
  • Fold each side of the shirt over the top of the other one , folding the sleeves
  • Then flip the entire thing -bottom to the top in front of you so that the bottom of the shirt is now  at the top.
  • Roll the shirt as tightly as possible
  • Tuck the roll into the original fold from the bottom of the shirt

While this trick admittedly works the easiest with t-shirts, this burrito roll once master can be easily used with pants & sweaters too.

What packing tips do you have to share?

Happy Traveling!

Hi, my name is Lori Judd and I am a CTA Graduate of ICTA (Institute of Certified Travel Agents) as well as a ACC accredit agent of CLIA. I have been in the travel industry for 20 years. I started my travel career at Journey's Travel and later joined the Walt Disney Travel Company, where I booked travel vacations for the company for 10 years. I left WDTC to pursue my dream of opening my own travel agency. Why should you book through me? You will find that am I extremely knowledgeable in my field with first hand experience with many cruise ships and vacation destinations. Plus, unlike most agents who are condemned to book vacations to make their agency a certain amount of revenue (or risk losing their jobs), I am able to book what you actually want vs what the agency needs. This means your vacation needs will never be compromised just because a supplier is offering more commission to book them. Also, since we are affiliated with a larger travel company we are still able to compete with other agencies by giving our clients competitive prices. The bottom line is: Prestige Travel Vacations is more interested in making your dreams come true by booking exactly what your asking for based on your needs and not by what someone else's idea of what a great vacation for you would be just because it will get them more commission. My cruise experiences: DCL- cruised 9 times! Current Platinum Member/ Wonder (twice in '06) and recent 11/2010/ Magic inaugural & Disney Dream -Apr. 2011 RCCL- 5 times! Current Platinum Member. Sailed once in a family suite. Granduer/ Enchantment/ Mariner/ Navigator 'Jan.08 & 2010/ New- Allure May 2012 Carnival- Fantasy/ Miracle and Inspiration 9/17/09. Ship tours incld.: CCL- Legend/ Holland's Veendam /NCL Star Nov.2011/ RCCL Jewel 3/12/12/ CCL Paradise 10/21/12
