Whether traveling alone or for pleasure, solo traveling can be a wonderful experience or a nightmare, depending upon your outlook and experiences. But by following these 5 tips, you are sure to get the most out of your solo travels.
Don’t be Nervous – One of the worst things you can do when traveling alone is worry what others think. Most people will never notice you are alone, and if they do, so what? Do not be nervous or self-conscious, or you will ruin your trip before it begins. This is especially true when traveling for pleasure, but when traveling for business, the same can is true – when you are not with colleagues or clients, enjoy the solitude.
Eat Smart – It is not uncommon to be afraid of going out to eat alone. To get over this, be smart about your meal options. Go to restaurants during the day, when it is brighter and less crowded. You will feel less out of place and more in control of your situation. For dinners, try to find local fast-food style eateries or sit at the bar.

We’ve all been on that plane where a toddler spends the entire trip crying. And as hard as it is for the other passengers, it’s even harder for the parents who simply can’t comfort their child. Here are six tips for you to help you avoid being that parent.
Clear Their Ears – After the plane takes off, you will naturally clear your ears to relieve the pressure. Unfortunately, toddlers don’t know how to do this. Give them a pacifier, bottle, lollipop, or nurse them, to help them clear their ears. Otherwise, they may be uncomfortable the entire trip.
Bring a Pillow – It is hard for most adults to fall asleep on a plane without a pillow, so to a small child, it can be almost impossible. The more you can make it like home, the easier it will be for a child to fall asleep. Also consider a blanket, to help them stay warm and cuddled up.
Screen Time is OK – Whatever your stance on screen time (time watching TV, tablets, phones, or video games), this is a time to bend the rules. Bring a tablet with stories or games for toddlers to help keep them entertained.
