Use travel time wisely
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.
