Alright kids, it’s now time for that one week we get a year to revel like it’s nobody’s business. That’s right spring break is here and I’m here to give you some tips on how to get there and back without any drama.
Bank Cards: Make sure you remember to call them and notify them of leaving the country. It would really suck to get there not be able to pay for your Sex On The Beach. I’d also recommend carrying cash on you because believe it or not, there are places that exist that don’t accept plastic.
Carry On: Even if you are checking a bag, you should really pack a survival kit in your carry on. Don’t end up like Greg Focker and spend your trip smelling like infant vomit carrying around sex toys (unless your into that). You should really bring the basics such as a tooth brush, bathing suit, clean undies and a couple outfits in your carry on just in case.
Bring A Smart Bag: This is mostly for the ladies, but if you don’t already have one buy a zippered over the shoulder bag. Coach has some really cute ones that will save you from getting robbed. I’ve always loved them for the simple fact that they’re hard to forget. But besides that they are hard to snatch and your money, camera or Ipod are zippered safely inside.
Medications: It’s smart to remember medications like Tylenol for fighting hangovers, Immodium incase you accidently drink the water or Maalox if your like me and have the stomach of an seventy year old man. Make sure not to bring any medications that are not technically prescribed to you, since that can become an issue when going through customs.
Use Your Brain: Not to sound like you’re Mother but don’t forget all the obvious things about being in a foreign place. Don’t drink so much that you don’t know where you are and end up on one of those ‘Spring Breaks Gone Bad’ shows. Stay with your friends at all times and go with your gut. If you meet some new friends while your out and they seem sketchy, it’s probably because they are. Even if they don’t seem sketchy, they probably are so just use your common sense and stick with the buddy system.
Revel:Most importantly, have a blast because this is the one week of the year where you can absolutely let loose and make some unforgettable memories. With the exception of STD's, you can leave behind any regrets or embarrassing mishaps you stumble upon on your trip. That's what vacations and your 20's are for.
