Invest in a handy suitcase scale: If you’re planning to bring back souvenirs or go shopping on your trip, this is a cheap and lightweight investment that will help you to make sure you don’t go over the weight limitations for your carry on or checked luggage. You simply hold it up, and hang your bag or suitcase on it and, like a produce scale, it will show you how much it weighs.

Use every pocket: When you pack your carry on or your checked bag, use every pocket/zipper you can. It is helpful to spread out your belongings, in the event of theft, but it is also helpful to use all the built-in storage to keep your necessary items safe and protected.
Bring business cards: When you are traveling for work, take every opportunity to network and meet people who you can learn from and who inspire you to take back great ideas to your own workplace. While business cards have been around for a long time, many people still carry them and find them helpful to remember the person they spoke with and how to contact you! It’s also a great way to ask for someone’s information in return. But don’t just take the business card and file it away somewhere- follow up! Email people that you meet at a conference or visit a week or so after you get back so that they remember you and you maintain that connection you made. Then make sure to stay in touch.
Last but not least, do have fun! Here are some pictures from our Iceland Trip!
