Use travel time wisely

Metro Canada (Winnipeg) - - TRAVEL - DOUG WAL­LACE/METRO

1. Use travel time to re­lax, not to work. Power down and give your brain a break. 2. Load your iPad with that doc­u­men­tary you’ve been mean­ing to watch or that video tu­to­rial you haven’t had time to wrap your head around. 3. Re­view a lan­guage app of the for­eign coun­try you’re head­ing to (qui­etly, of course). Even 10 sim­ple words and phrases can go a long way — and two of them had bet­ter be “please” and “thank you.” 4. Is the flight at­ten­dant/tour guide hand­ing out lo­cal news­pa­pers? Brush up on the news of the day at your des­ti­na­tion, so you’ll have some­thing to add to the lo­cal chit-chat. 5. Never for­get this all-im­por­tant travel rule, whether you’re on a plane, train or bus: Sleep when you can.
