First slice from an iphone

20130323-134353.jpg

To do list for international travelers:
•check the calendar for breaks
•find out what sites will take an American credit card to book flights or book train tickets with the help of an Indonesian friend
•research the visa requirements
•look up the currency (fun fact: Cambodia takes US dollars) and go to bank
•see what luggage is most practical
•pack an adaptor for recharging electronics
•print out travel plans
•book a taxi
•pay the airport tax at Soekarno–Hatta International Airport
•find your gate
•at security check drink your water (unless you’re flying in country where you can board with a half empty water bottle, big bottles of lotion, locks on your bags-why would that be a problem, in fact you must be a naive American if you don’t!)

I’m uploading from a layover in Kuala Lumpur.

    It’a complicated to travel in general but so much to remember when you are international. Love the power of the list and using your iPhone for this Slice 🙂

  2. Yay for blogging from the phone…like I wrote on one of my slices, I have had mine for a year now and can’t imagine going without it!

  3. Safe travels to Cambodia! Glad to see your first iPhone post worked.

    I forgot about booking the hotel and writing down the address for the taxi driver from the airport.

    I feel so boring. My travel is comprised of going to and from work.

  6. I don’t know if I could ever do a post from my iPhone. I will be interested in hearing about your travels in Cambodia and any adventures during this trip. You are quite an independent, self sufficient woman! I will keep this list for my travels overseas this fall and next summer. Have safe and fun travels.

  7. I hope you will write more about your travels to Cambodia. I’ve only been overseas in books, but one day I hope to travel the world.

    I know all about international travel! Sometimes you forget something…but it usually works out in the end! Have fun in Cambodia! Where are you going? Siem Reap?

    I got through security in Caracas with not only a full water bottle, but with a whole bottle of tequila! Gotta love Latin America!
