In a past life known as my 20′s and 30′s I was fortunate enough to travel all over the world and get paid for it. As rad as that was the airport and hotel part was always a pain in the ass. Here’s a few tips I have to make your next trip more enjoyable.
1. Even if your going off to a far and distant land for a long period of time never pack more than what will fit in carry on luggage. If your a dude there’s nothing you can’t do in 3 pairs of jeans,5 T-Shirts,7 pairs of boxers and socks, a sweatshirt/sweater and a jacket. Your a dude, make it work. There’s nothing worse than having the airline lose your luggage.
2. Pay the upgrade fee for first class.
3. Back in the day I’d check into the hotel under a fake name so fans wouldn’t come knocking on my door at 3:00am, but this had an added benefit that works for everybody. If your on the west coast or in Japan, check in under the name David Lee Roth, if your in middle America check in under Ted Nugent, for the rest of the world use Jon Bon Jovi. You’ll be amazed at how much faster your room service comes, it’s amazing, it’s as though they had already made the food before you ordered it. More travel tips to come.
