Over time, habits become visible patterns.
I was fortunate to have time to develop habits and patterns in NYC due to the curiosity and unquenchable thirst for knowledge of another visitor.

So much learning.
The best tip ever was to ask (before making a purchase), “Do you ship purchases?” And if the answer was, “Yes,” then the next step was to inquire about the pricing.
Why did it matter?
When traveling by plane, I’m a “carry on” passenger. I don’t check luggage. Similarly, I also follow the rules about the number of bags that I take on a plane. I don’t carry six bags on the plane. I check the rules and follow them.
I learned about shipping from my friend Allison Jackson. We’ve had many adventures in NYC, but her “shipping tip” has literally saved my back and my brains when traveling! Thank you, Allison!
Who fuels your curiosity? How do you plan your adventures? What are your favorite travel tips?
