2018 Holiday Travel Guide


Holiday travel is both special and stressful. Yuletide spirit and Christmas lights create a festive environment for crossing the country to see family and friends. But the bumper-to-bumper traffic and close quarters are enough to make everyone crazy.

You have to deal with extra crowds, but you won’t want to miss the chance to witness memories in the making. Almost the entire globe is celebrating a holiday this time of year, so you have the opportunity to see all kinds of excitement.

Whether you decide to stay home this year, have a staycation or take a trip far from home, you can easily navigate the best and worst of holiday travel with these reservation tips and packing solutions.

While summertime, spring break, New Year’s, and Thanksgiving are among some of the busiest travel times, it’s no surprise that Christmastime is also on this list. So how do you avoid the stress?

Traveling in the offseason is always an option. Celebrate your holiday a week or two early. Get your traveling out of the way, but don’t leave out any trimmings. Decorate for Christmas and get your holiday shopping out of the way in November. That way you can celebrate like you would and still avoid the crowds.

Spend your holidays in cheaper areas of the world. Mexico is a beautiful destination for saving money because the value of your money goes farther. You can celebrate in true Mexican style, with excitement and flair. Everything in Mexico goes slower, is more relaxed, and is more exciting.

Instead of traveling during your holiday, go somewhere exotic for theirs. For instance, you can travel to Stonehenge during the Solstice, Thailand during Songkran, Delhi during Diwali, or Seville during Holy Week. You get the idea here. You can celebrate something new and different and then stay at home with your family during peak travel times.

Don’t forget to pack your comfortable clothes so you can relax and spend time with the people who matter most. Bonds offers comfortable undergarments and intimate wear so you can pack easily and you can spend the holidays in comfort.

Happy Christmas (or whatever it is that you celebrate)!

Here are just a few areas that you might like to focus on to get the ball rolling the right direction!
Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…
