13 Tips to Travel Like A Pro

“Now boarding, US Airways flight 708 to Munich, Germany. All passengers please proceed to gate A20.”

I’m kicking back in my seat in the International A Terminal at the Philadelphia airport, casually reviewing some notes on Florence, Italy. I’m leading a workshop there for Strabo Photo Tours, and I’m connecting in Munich for my flight to Florence.

But not everyone in the waiting area is relaxed. A young couple two rows over is frantically searching for their passports. It appears they misplaced them when they went through security. Things are getting tense as the couple realizes their romantic trip to Italy is about to come crashing to a halt unless they find their passports. Lucky for them, they find their documents in a mesh pocket on the outside of their backpack. This starry-eyed couple needs to get a little more travel savvy or the next time it could be worse.

I’ve been leading photo tour groups around the globe for almost 20 years now, and I’ve learned some valuable travel lessons. Sometimes I make mistakes, and other times, group members make mistakes. Collectively, I learned from hundreds of people’s mistakes! I’ve constantly refined my travel methods as I have learned more. Use the guidelines below on your next trip and be worry-free, so you can concentrate on your photography, not dealing with a problem on the road.
