So many of us are on the road between Thanksgiving and Christmas into New Years. We have organized email and posts from JAVA Members with clever tips to ease your mind and to make your trips easy.
Book a top chef’s favorite restaurant. Can’t get a seat at the five-star restaurant? Ask the hostess where the chef likes to eat. This trick yields hidden gems+ where you can likely find a table.
Google Map your way to good eats. Use the “search this area” feature to find restaurants nearby. Add filters: No rating below a 4, open now; and no sushi in, say, Indianapolis. Your meal, your rules.
Don’t choose the highest-rated spots; go instead for the ones with the most reviews. They’re the places people feel most strongly about—con as well as pro— so they should provoke an opinion from you, too. Diving into a restaurant debate in a far-off land is part of the adventure!
Jam your jacket into a little sack. Travelers flying across different climates tend to wrestle with a tough choice: lugging around a winter jacket where it makes no sense, or freezing without a coat upon landing back at home. Buying a down jacket that can be stuffed into an inside pocket. It’s as small as a makeup bag, so you avoid coat check wherever you go.
Know the local time everywhere. Watches with GMT or world time functions reduce the need to set and reset your time zone.
Let the sneaks out of the bag. Tie yours to the outside of his backpack by the laces—it saves tons of precious luggage space.
