I had to share this excellent post on
Surviving Travel and Conference from Indie Guzman-Cooper, RN writing at WebMD. She provides a great checklist of things she did to prepare for the trip, as well as other bits of wisdom, such as:
When I arrived to park my car, arrive at the airport, and check in, I sought out assistance. For me, this was a new thing since I tend to be an independent lady and tend to try and do everything by myself. But I realized I needed the assistance and it was not wise for me to risk any more problems than I was already dealing with by being stubborn!
I look forward to the second in this two-post series.
