If you find a restaurant you like when traveling, ask the staff for other restaurant recommendations.
With many passports, other countries will not let you in if your passport expires within X months of the passport's expiration date.
Where X is typically 6 months. For example, Europe requires passports to expire at least 3 months from departure date.\n\nIf your passport expires in July, and your trip is scheduled for May, you will not be allowed in.
When booking two airline seats, reserve the aisle and window seats.
Many times other travelers won't reserve the middle and you can end up with the entire row (on lower capacity flights).\n\nIf someone books the middle, offer them one of your seats and sit next to your flight companion.
