So what’s next? Before the packing and planning, you’ve got one more important decision to make…Who is going to be your traveling partner?
You may have purchased all of the best gear for your next outdoor excursion- a weatherproof sleeping bag, a high-quality stove and the best hiking shoes money can buy! But have you packed for safety? The great outdoors can be wild and unruly, and it’s important to remember that you’re the visitor in this space-not the other way around.

Traveling is different for everyone. A lot of people enjoy it, sleep through it or entertain you all the way to your destination. There are however, those few travelers who you could swear were brought to this Earth specifically to find you and make your life a living H-E double hockey sticks.
Whether they over pack, constantly complain or go overboard on their favorite perfume, we’ve all had that one passenger next to us who makes us question all of humanity and swear off traveling forever!! (Dramatic…but I know you’re with me).
Are you up to date with your traveling etiquette? Or do your habits clean out the rows around you? If you do any of these things, congratulations: You’re the passenger from hell!
I had two flights the day I flew home to Canada from Switzerland, and they couldn’t have been more different. The first flight lasted three hours and was so empty that I had a whole row to myself. The second flight lasted a total of nine hours and was so cramped that I can only describe my seated position as pretzel-like. Unfortunately the projector television screens were broken, which meant nine hours of listening to music or creepily watching the man beside me play Sudoku.
What both of these flights had in common however, were children flying with one parent. Let it be known that I tip my hat to any parent that begins familiarizing their children with flying early on, but after observing both parties on my flights, it became clear that preparation was the key to a successful flight with kids.
Need some tips for your next flight with kids? Check out some of these ideas brought to you by a well-prepared goddess and her two children on my nine hour flight.
If you have any flying fears, then you know that any thoughts of upcoming trips are quickly hindered by the thought of getting there. Being a nervous flyer can have a huge effect on your attitude leading up to take-off, not to mention your attitude as your trip winds down and you have to fly home again!
Perfecting your camping game in the summer season is one thing, but winter camping? Now that’s a whole other story…but why not? Start your New Year on an adventurous note by enjoying the fresh, frigid air and crackling fires at a snowy camping site.
If you’re a travel junkie, then you probably already have a long list of destinations planned for the New Year. And while you may be a globe-trotting guru, we’ve come up with some resolutions that can help you to expand your traveling experiences even more.
