We had our travel meeting last week - a little earlier than the agency likes to hold it, but that's how we roll - the sooner the better! (They prefer to hold the meeting just before you travel so everything is fresh in your mind.)
The meeting was a little less exciting than we'd hoped, possibly because we had just eaten lunch and were both a little sleepy (nursery preparations are beginning to take their toll). As usual, there were no major revelations. For the most part we simply reviewed the travel packet that we'd already read. Since hubby and I have traveled pretty extensively much of the information wasn't new to us, but it does seem thorough enough to make for a very pleasant journey even for those that have never traveled before.
There is one tip that I suggested the agency add to the travel information which I will mention here (just in case it doesn't make it in to the official Travel Packet by the time anyone reading this travels):
Don't forget to call your credit card companies before you travel to let them know you will be traveling internationally. If you don't do this, you may find yourselves, as we have, attempting to make a fabulous purchase only to be denied by your "helpful" credit card company (they automatically assume your card has been stolen and shut it down for you). For this reason you will also want to have at least two credit cards with you on your trip. It's always good to have a backup especially when shopping! :-)
