The stories featured here have been compiled from conversations across a wide cross-section of people. These are young professionals who are inclined to go on a vacation, but don’t have plan in place. Not always easy to do at that age, when you don’t have enough time, or money. Or maybe both.

A long term vacation plan such as timeshare could come way down a “consider list” for these professionals, but the ones we spoke to are willing to stretch a bit and invest in the good times.

Over to some of the young professionals we spoke to about work, vacations and the need to prioritize on work-life balance.

What I find absolutely shocking is the amount of litter we can generate – especially on vacation. Cigarette butts, water bottles, biscuit & chocolate wrappers, empty foil packs, paper plates, food remnants – the list goes on and on.

On a forest or cross-country trek for instance, we need to carry along a convenient dump bag with us that can contain litter the group typically generates – each one of us could also carry our own individual dump bags if that can make things simpler. I’ve seen litter being dropped from tourist boats along picturesque stretches of river – and this tends to
float or even sink to be swallowed by fish. (And that spins off a whole new set of problems . . .)

In one of our earlier features we shared tips on packing your bags when you go on a vacation – this month our feature story is on what you need to keep in mind even before you start packing your bags. We share a compilation of tips and guidelines you can consider that will ensure peace of mind and a feeling of total control over the situation.

We’ve heard of instances where the husband asks the wife some really “too-late-to-answer” questions. Did you switch off the lights in the bedroom? Did you turn off the TV? Did we roll down the garage door and sling a lock? (The questions go on and on, and can bring on worry lines even before you even reach your destination.)

So, we thought we would compile a list of tips that should come in useful – please make a mental note of these suggestions, or take a print out for easy reference. These tips come to you from people who are in related fields when it comes to customer advice and support.
