-When traveling through India or Asia bring along some bilingual menus from some of your favourite ethnic eateries back home. This way if you’re at a restaurant with no English menu you can use yours to show the waiter the type of dish you want! This isn’t something Kensington travelers ever had to worry about though – just another one of the advantages of having a local English speaking private guide!
-If your an avid reader and headed out on a long trip a couple paperbacks just won’t cut it. Instead go to websites like librivox.org and download a variety of books to your iPod – for free! The site has all genres of books for both adult and children.
-If your planning on using your ATM card while traveling out of country be sure that the money you need is in your checking account. Many foreign bank machines abroad won’t allow you to access your savings account while abroad. Also be sure to carry your local banks phone number as 800 numbers don’t usually work from overseas.
