Hi. My name is Shantel, and I'm from California. Let's see. Today's question is what should you do before you travel?
Well, before you travel, there are many things you should do, but first, you should start packing as soon as you can. Make a list of all the necessary items you need to take with you, and once you have made the list, you can begin to pack your bag. I think after you place an item from the list in your bag, you can cross it off and this helps you stay organized. When you have finished packing your bag, you should double check to make sure you have all the important documents such as passport, driver's license, plane ticket, hotel information. Then, you should tell some family or friends that you're taking a trip in case you have some emergency on your trip. When you arrive at your destination, smile and have a great time.
