Travel Tips from Susan McDaniel Travel Facebook Page
Every week on my Facebook page I offer up travel tips. Here’s a compilation of some recent tips.
Your travel tip of the week: Go to Wal Mart and buy a few disposable rain coats/ponchos for your trip. They are cheap, don’t take up much room, and might come in very handy!
Your travel tips of the week: On your next cruise take along one of those magnetic bag clips. They will stick to the walls and help keep all the papers and notices you receive organized in one place!
Travel tip of the week: Don’t let your toothbrush sit on the counter in the hotel bathroom. Take the paper cup provided for the coffee and punch a hole in the bottom. Turn it upside down and insert the toothbrush handle. Voila!
Your travel tip of the week comes from my friend JoAnn: If you wear sandals to the airport, stash a pair of socks in your carry on. Put them on when you take your shoes off for security. It is downright creepy to be walking barefoot where a million other feet have been.
Your travel tip of the week: Before you drive away in that rental car, use your camera or phone and take pictures of the car from every angle. Use a time/date stamp. May save you a world of headaches later!
Susan McDaniel Travel’s travel tip of the week: Do not get hit with crazy “talk, text, data” bills when you travel. Just because your phone, I-pad, etc. works overseas or on the cruise ship, that doesn’t mean you should use it without thinking. Get an international SIM card and avoid the after-vacation sticker shock!
Susan McDaniel Travel’s travel tip of the week: Save those perfume and cologne samples that come in magazines and direct mail. Use them when you travel. No liquids to lug or worry about spilling or getting through security, and you can still be nicely scented.

I’m holding off on revamping my Facebook travel pages until the bugs get worked out of the new Timeline format. I still plan to use this picture (see below) of Bathsheba in Barbados. It was taken from the open window of the Round House restaurant, which actually is a round building. A small jazz band was playing on a Sunday afternoon, the rum punch was flowing, and the locals were lunching after church in their best dress. Such a wonderful memory the photo
evokes. Do you have any memorable travel photos to share? I’d love to see them! Would you like to explore the undiscovered Barbados? Let me know and I will share my secrets of this British gem with you while we plan a perfect vacation by land or by sea.
