Shopping on a trip isn’t exactly an afternoon trip to the mall. (Especially if you’re abroad.)
There are lots of considerations to be made: How will I get it home? Is haggling acceptable here? Will I find the same thing for a cheaper price in two days? Will my credit card work? If it’s early in the trip, do I want to lug this giant djembe all over Africa? Can I ship it home now?
It’s the biggest travel weekend of the year. Lines of weary travelers snake around the security barriers, toes tapping as yet another traveler readjusts their overweight suitcase at check in….scores of television cameras documenting the scene with ten-second interviews and those of us at home happily watching….thankful we are not in the fray. What happens when your travel plans collide with Thanksgiving weekend??? It’s simple….you plan.
