Write your travel bucket list
We all have goals, some more travel-y than others. Take this time to commit those goals to paper. Plan out what you want to do on your upcoming tour—or document your travel dreams for the next five years (and beyond, if you like). We bet it’ll help keep those wanderlust vibes going strong. Plus, checking off a list feels amazing.
Practice your international body language
We know different cultures speak different languages. But it’s easy to forget that they may have different body language, too. With a quick YouTube search, you can find out how body language is used around the world and practice your nonverbal communication.
Create your own itinerary
When it comes to travel, most of the dreaming and planning happens at home. So as you wait for your trip, think about where you want to go next and start building out a dream itinerary. Or for a different way to travel, tap into your local knowledge to design an oh-so-perfect itinerary for exploring your hometown. Find out why coordinating travel times, hitting city highlights, and balancing opening hours is truly an art form.
Try a suitcase challenge
Tightly pack a suitcase (the more unusual the items, the better: a pineapple? a bike helmet? a rotary telephone?), then time yourself as you unpack, then repack it. This’ll come in handy when it’s time to pack their own bags, promise.
