Work Travel — Tips and Tricks

Somewhere above the San Juan Islands, I think

Trip Planning

Pack for the unexpected

Look up your hotel and its location

Phone and Headphones

  • Download Lyft and sign in (to save yourself annoying two-factor auth while roaming)
  • Look into the best data roaming option for your destination
  • Download Maps for offline usage (here’s how)
  • Sync your flight and travel itinerary to the airline’s app for offline access. Screenshot your boarding pass.
  • Sync music and podcasts for offline usage (I use Overcast for the latter)
  • Charge your noise cancelling headphones (I can’t travel without these). Noise cancelling headphones mean you arrive feeling way more rested after a long flight. I mostly have them turned on without music playing.

Travel Life

This is staged. I can never sleep on airplanes :(

Get lots of rest

Eat well
