I think I’ve got tipping sorted…..
I’m going to sound like a complete noob here, but what the heck. Maybe some of you Euro types that travel to the US can help me out here.
I’m bringing my laptop along for the trip. Here in Australia we run about twice the voltage in our electrical system as what they do in the US. I’m going to get a plug adapter so that I can plug it in, but will it run OK on the low voltage they have there? Is there anything else I need to do?
I was planning on bringing my handset over. My phone is provided by my employer and the SIM card won’t work overseas. I’ve never actually bought a phone of my own, believe it or not. So will I be able to buy a prepaid SIM card there and have a number for the time I’m there?
I’m trying to figure out how I can make the trip using carry-on luggage only. One carry-on bag and my camera pack. It’ll save a bundle of time and make moving around a heck of a lot easier. It’s only 5 days in the US, so I figure one spare pair of pants, a few shorts and my underwear should do it. I can buy toiletries there.
What do you think?
Any other travel tips from frequent US travellers would be more than welcome!
