Before you pack your bags, think about where you are going and what you want to do when you get there. Nothing is worst than getting to the airport and finding out your luggage weighs more than the 50 pound maximum. Yes, this has happen to me! It was a good thing I had a carry-on with me, along with a couple of friends who had room in their luggage. Man I couldn’t believe I did what I always warn my clients not to do. Oh well! I learned a lesson and I will share 3 of them it with you.

  1. Never pack gym shoes-my gym shoes weigh at least 5 pounds. Wear them or put them in your carry-on, however wearing gym shoes can be a pain in the you know what when going through airport security. I notice most of the people had on sandals or flip- flops.
  2. If you are on your way to the airport because you are running from the cold and snow. Don’t wear a heavy coat. A couple of layers are the key because it is easy to pack in your carry-on or if you haven’t check your luggage you can slip extra clothes in it.
  3. Make sure you stick to the 3 ounces of liquids and other necessities. I forgot that my expensive lotion was in my carry-on (8 ounces) it was forever gone in the trash.

I hope you can learn from my mistakes.  After all of that, I still had a good time and a relaxing beach experience in Punta Cana. I cannot wait to go back!
