It is normal that when making a trip we feel a bit of anxiety, we worry about making all the preparations, due to the stress of the airport and the fatigue of the flight.

  • Eat well. It is important to have the base of a good meal before a flight, pamper yourself a little and eat something that nourishes you and at the same time you enjoy a lot.
  • Find what to entertain on your flight. Bring books, download movies or series, listen to music or take a nap to speed up your flight time

How to stay healthy while traveling

Traveling can be a very tiring activity, it is important that we do not forget about our health since we are exposing our body to changes that we are not used to at home. It is important to take care of our body on the flight to avoid getting sick and to be able to enjoy our trip.

Follow these steps to have a healthier trip:

1.         Research: will there be a meal served on your flight? Are you planning toe at the airport? What are your dinning options near your hotel? Plan ahead by calling the places you’ll be visiting, ask for menu options.

2.         Stay hidrated: Bring a an empty bottle to fill once that get past security at the airport. Drinking water helps prevent your nose from getting congested during the flight, it also helps your body control changes in temperature in the environment.

3.         Pack snacks. especially healthy foods like apples, bananas, protein bars, these don’t go bad so fast and they save you when you haven’t had time to eat well

4.         Rest well. Having a good night’s sleep helps our nervous system, this is why it is the basis of a relaxed trip, prepare everything from the night before and try to get at least 8 hours of sleep.

5.         Sanitize. Pack hand sanitizer (TSA- approved) or bacteria-killing wipes in case you don’t get to a sink to wash your hands before eating.

6.         Eat a good breakfast. Try to eat lots of fruits, whole grain foods, and high-fiber foods that fill you up and give you energy for the rest of the day.   

Want to take better photos of your trips? 

The photos of a trip are very important because they are our memories of unique and sporadic moments and that is why they must always be perfect, but sometimes we are very tired or we do not have much time to think about the perfect photo.

Take these tips into account to always be ready:

• Charge your camera the night before, it is very stressful when you are in a magical place, watching a beautiful sunset or simply sharing with friends that you have not seen in a long time, you want to capture the moment but your camera has no battery, do not let this it happens to you! Always try to charge your camera battery the night before your trip.

• Be careful with the backlight, the light is a very important element in the photographs, it makes the colors look brighter and gives a better quality to the image. Take a good look at the position of the light, whether natural or artificial.

•Why not? Buy a tripod, when we travel alone it is difficult to get captures of ourselves, with a tripod it is easier because you can better control the landscape of your photo while you are in it.

•Use what you have within reach, many people say that to have a perfect photo it is necessary to have a professional camera, but in reality what matters most is the essence of the image, the people, the landscape, the colors, the lighting and the angle. So don’t be afraid to use your cell phone camera or even an old roll camera. The important thing is to capture the memories.

• Don’t be afraid to experiment! Traveling is a unique experience, take several photos of the places you like from different angles, at different times of the day, try different filters to give your photos more color and fun!

DFW Airport Parking Prices Go Up Third Year In A Row

According to the new reports, the charges for parking vehicles at the Dallas Fort Worth Airport have been increased effective September 1, 2016. The new pricing has taken the charge for terminal parking from $22 to $24, an increase of almost 10%. It would be worth noting that this is a consecutive third year that DFW parking prices have been increased. In 2014, the airport raised the prices from $18 to $20. Similarly, the prices were raised again in 2015 from $20 to $22.

Parking Lot

Why Do Airport Parking Prices Keep Going Up?

Well, it has mostly to do with constant expansion and renovations that go on at all the major airports to generate more revenue. Off course, they need to generate SOME revenue first to pay for those expansions and renovations, hence the vicious circle of sky rocketing of charges to park on the airport terminals. It is also interesting to note that once those big plans have been completed and the airports start making more money, the prices never go down again.

While you may not have a say in the matter, but you have to keep in mind that you are not totally helpless in this matter and do have a choice to pick cost-effective alternatives as a traveler.

Cheap Airport Parking at DFW

This low-cost alternative enables you to park at a location very close to the airport at a fraction of the price you have to pay at the airport. Granted, the costs of long term parking at DFW are lower than that of the parking closest to the airport terminal. However, the on-site parking is still much higher than off-airport parking lots.

Costs of Off-site DFW Parking

At present, if you park your vehicle at the remote parking lot, you have to pay $10 per day. Now, if you are to be gone for, let’s say two weeks, you would be facing a charge of $140 at your return. In comparison, there are options available for as low as one third of that cost.

Book2Park offer safe and secure DFW long term parking services at multiple lots, cheapest of which is for only $3 per day. The lot is located only 3.9 miles from the airport and a shuttle service is available to take you to the airport every hour from 4:00am to 1:00am.

10 Useful tips to save money when traveling.

Budgeting can be very difficult especially when you are going to travel, whether you are going to travel alone, with your family or with your couple.

Money is a very important factor we have to consider when traveling:  Having a fun and quality time is everyone’s goal but doing so without over spending can sometimes be a challenge.

Here are 10 useful tips to save money while traveling:

1. Be flexible.
For example, if you want to travel to a luxurious beach, but there is a great deal to travel to Mexico or the Caribbean consider other beach destinations; you still get a beach destination and probably you are saving half of your money. Always look out for great deals at the right time.

Alternatively, you can use flexible dates. Sometimes being flexible on your dates can definitely save you some money.

2. Plan your next travel vacation from 1-2 months in advance.
That way you can check and even get great deals at hotels and air fares.

3. Use social networks.
Social networks and the Internet are your best friends for getting great deals you don’t have to search a lot, you just find them. Social Media has plenty of bargains. Take advantage of it.

4. Buy package deals.
Most of the time, hotels and restaurants are offering you a variety of family packages.  This way you can get delicious food and enjoy plenty of time with the ones you love at reasonable prices.

5. Stay at cheap family hotels.
Many hotels may have everything you are looking for. For example, a room that makes your family fit in, perks you might need at your hotel room, breakfasts and lunches included and even you can find many entertainment areas. All in one, saving even more money.

6. Sign up for discount websites.
You may already receive emails from some discount websites, but don’t wait too much. Go and sign yourself up to coupon sites, they might be useful and money saver. Or, register to those travel sites that you use the most. Most of those websites send discount codes through email.

7. Reduce or eliminate your car usage.
Avoid terrific traffic! You can enjoy your travel destination using tourist ride services, try to use a bicycle and have fun, or go for a walk with your family. That way you enjoy and don’t miss any single part of the place you are visiting.

8. Always keep in mind the extra fees and exchange rates.
Keep in mind you have a tight budget, always be aware of these two important things to properly consider what you are going to spend.

9. Eat out less.
Restaurants tend to be expensive everywhere you go, so learn to cook with your family and have quality time with them. Or get snacks or sandwich ingredients to avoid eating out all the time.

10. Find free entertainment.
Ask around and see which bars and clubs have free music or comedy performances, or find out about free local museums, galleries and other attractions.
