6.  Bring flats/ sneakers that will go with the clothes you’ve packed.  For long haul flights, I put my slippers in my hand carry and wear them during the flight but please make sure you have pretty toes and do not take them off during the flight or you can opt to wear socks 🙂

12.  I also check the www.toursbylocals.com for private tours of the city I’ll be visiting.

* When I know I’ll be buying a lot from one city, I make a list of their available door to door/balikbayan box service available in the area to avoid the stress of having overweight luggage at the airport
