    Great tips Michela. I’ve been flying very frequently since May 2000 so can relate to a lot of these. Definitely get to the airport early as you recommend. It only takes one hold up on a journey to the airport and you can always be chasing your tail, so to speak. The more time you plan for travel the more prepared you are to overcome any unplanned delays.

    Thank you SO much for these tips. I’m relocating to Australia from the US in a month and I’m stressed trying to plan every little thing, knowing I’m going to forget or not think about a billion things. I hope I get to read your next post and what to expect once you arrive at the airport in AU. Keep up the amazing blog. Hugs!!
