The holidays are before us Thanksgiving is just a week away! Families will soon be reunited, and you better believe airports will be packed!
I love me some winter travel, but if you don’t like the airport chaos, alleviate the stress by arriving earlier than usual. They say 2 hours prior to your flight will get you where you want to be, but I’d recommend arriving 3 hours early (at the very least!) during the holiday months, and if you are traveling international, add an hour to that time. It’s a safer bet, and you’ll find that you’ll need that extra time in the security line!
I’d also recommend using bright colored luggage. Reason being, there will be a higher than usual amount of luggage in the baggage claim, so you’ll want to not only be able to identify your luggage easily, you will also prevent others from mistakenly snagging your bag for theirs.
Just a couple tips for the holidays. Happy traveling!
Thanks for reading!

Hello. I’m Brittany, and I like to travel. I enjoy sharing photos and telling stories about the places I’ve been and the experiences I’ve had. After graduating college, I backpacked Europe alone. Some would say I’m a bold traveler, but I feel like I’m just getting started. I tend to attract colorful situations, so I hope you enjoy what you read!
