here and there and so here are the easy tips that you have
The most seasoned
travellers can attest--it’s really the little things that make the biggest
difference when you’re exploring new territory. A few upgrades here and there
and the necessary nuisance of going through airport security or going for a
long-haul journey becomes a breeze; you might even get a couple of perks along
From coach to business class
If you want to get upgraded
from your cramped coach seats up to roomier business class, then you have to
dress the part. Sure a t-shirt and flip-flops might be comfortable for your
flight, but the airline will be less likely to put you with their top paying
clientele if you don’t look the part.
From deluxe rooms to suites
The only time tardiness
might actually be worth something. Checking in later in the afternoon or even
evening gives hotel front desks a better idea of their occupancy; which means
asking for an upgrade at this point might be more feasible. Remember to be polite
(you are boldly asking for an upgrade, after all) and do so when there are no
other guests around.
From casual to cosmopolitan
It’s hard to be fashionable
when you’re essentially trying to fit a week’s worth of outfits into a single
suitcase while making sure they’re comfortable, but it is possible. For
instance, bring flat shoes that run a half size bigger (feet swell while on air
and you’ll need the respite from all that walking), bring clothes that you can
layer depending on the weather, try to keep your color palette strictly
basic—blacks, whites, navys and nudes are easy to mix and match.
From falling into tourist traps to taking the
road less travelled
Smart travellers know that
most popular tourist destinations are expensive and sometimes, not even all
that interesting; so try going for the road less travelled. If you absolutely
have to or want to go to a popular tourist destination, go on a weekday and at
a weird hour to minimize lines.
From holding up security lines to breezing
Here’s a quick tip on how
to make sure you don’t bumble through the security checks—place your shoes (and
coat) on the first bin, your laptop and liquids in the second bin, and your
purse or carry on in the third. As you wait for your things on the other side,
your shoes and coat come out first giving you time to grab your bag and place
your laptop back inside. Also, it pays to not wear belts and thigh high lace up
boots to the airport.
From being unprepared to staying healthy
Travellers who have to share cabin space with 100 other humans who
could possibly have cough and colds have to arrive at their destination
healthy. It’s no fun exploring a new city when you’re running a flu, nursing a
cold and dealing with a cough.
Before you go on a Vitamin C binge though, you have to know that
it’s not advisable to double-up on your vitamin C dose. Our bodies our only
capable of absorbing up to 400g, so anything more than that, will do nothing to
boost protection for your immune system.
Instead, pop one capsule of Conzace to stave off germs and viruses
from fellow passengers.Conzace multivitamins is proven to activate more immunity
cells than plain Vitamin C.And when
your immunity is in top shape, you can better manage illnesses – allowing your
body to prevent catching common viruses or recover faster if you do fall ill.
It’s available per piece and only for P12.40 per capsule, but when
you’re trying to keep yourself healthy for a cross-Atlantic journey, you might
as well keep a generous stock. Conzace is also easily available from all major
drugstores and supermarkets over the counter.
Finally, here’s an added plus, the zinc and vitamins A, C and E,
which all contain anti-oxidants, also help in maintaining great skin.
