Check multiple weather sources don’t just rely on what the hotel site says and find a graph that shows the average rainfall and temperature for the location and month you’re planning to travel just be meticulous.

You know this. You are quite certain that your passport is up-to-date and you always stay on top of your seat assignment. Except when you forget. Showing up at the ticket counter without the necessary paperwork means someone is guaranteed to lose her temper. Double-check that both of your passports are up-to-date at least two months out. The U.S. Passport Agency advises that it takes four to six weeks to renew by mail. Determine whether you need a visa before you leave; Brazil, India and Russia are three places that require them for U.S. citizens. Although you can purchase a visa upon arrival in some countries, many require you pay in cash (like the Dominican Republic). Be sure to make a stop at the ATM before you get on the plane or risk trying to find one at the border.
How to Stop if it Happens
A way to avoid the off-routine struggle is to maintain as much of your daily self-care as possible. For instance, if you always go for a brisk walk before you eat your granola for breakfast, try and stick with that routine.
Remember vacationing is about pleasure, rest and adventure (depending on what your vacation style is). So do what you can for yourself so you can get the most out of your time away.
