Holiday Travel, make coming home better

ImageI had an interesting discussion about holiday travel yesterday, what tips, tricks and special things had I learned over the years? The one that got the most surprised reaction, was my advice on coming home.

One thing that I’ve learned to before leaving, along with turning off the lights, emptying the trash, clearing out the coffee maker etc. is to put fresh, claen sheets on the bed, to change the towels in the bathroom and every trip to change my toothbrush and to try to leave the house as tidy as I can.

When you get home, not only will everything be familiar, but in a few key ways, your home will have some of the best aspects of a hotel. Enjoy the travel, make coming home special.
