You should talk to your GP before travelling to see what vaccinations and shots you will need before visiting South Africa. The last thing you will want to be doing is lying in hospital while your team wins the tournament.
Bring great music or audible books with you! Music is truly the soundtrack of our lives and every road trip needs a soundtrack. I think of my trip to Seattle every time I hear a Phil Collins song from "No Jacket Required" because that was the primary music I was listening to on that trip. I think of the Bahamas Harbor Island and the amazing walks on the Pink Sands Beach every time I hear Wilson Phillips music. It's sort of like having a theme song for every vacation but hearing the music even today will evoke fun memories of wonderful trips. I also love catching up on books I'd like to read but somehow find it easier to listen to. That's where audio books come in and you can download them to your mp3 player, iPhone, or other PDA device. !
Make a list of everything you need to do the day before and the day of departure. Add everything you need to do beforehand to make sure all last-minute errands are ran and everything gets packed. This list may include items like arranging boarding for pets paying last-minute travel tips bills double checking all arrangements are made and any other tasks that need done in advance. Make another list of everything that needs done on the day of departure. Include things such as grab boarding passes, check for flight delays, items to pack for carry-on luggage, etc.
Check online for deals. This applies to hotel reservations and popular tourist destinations. What a lot of companies are doing now to save time is offering discounts to people who are willing to purchase their tickets online. I like doing it this way because I save money and they save time, everyone's a winner!
When you travel, you should never draw any attention from other people. This means that you shouldn't wear anything shiny, such as gold jewelry, expensive watches, rings and other things that projects affluence. And, if you can, try leaving your jewelry at home, especially if you are not really going to use it when traveling.
Add a few accessories and be dressed for the evening. Change your shoes and be dressed for a day of sight seeing. It is easy, effortless and you'll look good, feel great, and have fun doing it!
