Traveling by Car:
The week before you travel, get your mechanic to check your car's tires, brakes, fluid levels and anything else that needs paying attention to. You don't want to be stranded in the middle of nowhere because your car broke down! And don't forget the spare tire!
Managing Your Gifts:
Wrapped gifts aren't allowed at the airport so don't waste your time and effort on wrapping before you travel. Wrap upon arrival or go one step further and have your gifts delivered before your trip back, so you don't have to carry them!
