SOMETHINGS TO KEEP IN MIND...

YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO PREPARED
A little pro-tip… if you buy your plane ticket months in advance you can save! That means more money to spend of your trip! If you’re feeling really risky, you can buy the night before or even the day of! Apps like Hopper and Skyscanner are really helpful and can tell you when to buy!
TOO MUCH VITAMIN D? TRY VITAMIN TEA.
Have a sunburn? Studies show that Earl Grey is a good substitute for aloe in soothing sunburns! Pick it up at your local store or ask your hotel if they have it!
CORKS ON KEYS
Doing a lot water activities and scared to lose your keys? Attach a cork to your keychain! If you lose your keys this will help keep them afloat.
THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT
