  • i work at radioshack in a college town and we sell a TON of the international outlet adapters.....there are a lot of countries where our electrical stuff wont work without an adapter and it would suck to be out of the country with no cell phone charger, laptop charger, or flat iron that could plug in the outlets....the adapters are $25-45

  • go to this website...
    it has a lot of information on vaccinations that might be needed in certain areas
    it might be nice to include how to contact a u.s embassy nearby if in trouble, what the best way of communication is in that area (internet cafes, phone cards) in order to prevent expensive international calling, what current exchange rates are, where local hospitals are located, etc.
    most of this info can be found on the u.s dept of state website
    i just travelled to china and found a lot of this information to be VERY useful!!

  • traveling with kids or without kids?
    Wear comfortable walking shoes b/c most airlines shuttle everyone to their hub (a domestic flight) then sort them out into their international flights, and domestic gates and international gates are usually the farthest away from each other in airports.

  • oh, and that means that you have to allow yourself a lot of time between flights.
