Is International Travel worth the Hassles—and the Risk? — 4 Comments

  1. Understanding a few key words and some culture will greatly reduce travel risk. My go-to book for France is “Savoir Flair: 211 Tips for Enjoying France and the French.” It was written in the 1990s by Polly Platt, a cross-cultural instructor. It is a bit dated, but it is also a quick read and France won’t feel so foreign after the read.

  2. Use Apple Pay (or Google Pay) for purchases abroad. It’s safer (uses a transaction number not your credit card number) and very handy because you just tap. If you’ve never used it, practice before you travel.

    And I echo your advice to pack light. Pack undies to last the trip, 4 tops, 2 pants, sweater, jacket, 2 walking shoes/sandals. You don’t need much!

  3. Good suggestion about Apple or Google Pay!

    And you are an expert at packing light… and always look fashionable!
