If you’re a diva on the road, does that mean you travel with lots of luggage? Or is it something else? Is being a diva all about knowing how to stay safe while traveling or having the right attitude when faced with adversity? The truth is that being able to stay comfortable while traveling requires diligence and preparation. Here are 14 signs that you are a traveling diva:

You pack in advance.

You’re a pro at the packing game, so you don’t wait until the last minute to stuff a bag and hit the road. You have all of your essentials ready when you need them because you packed them well in advance. You know that it’s easy for things to get left behind if they aren’t properly organized beforehand—and nobody wants that! So if you want to be a traveling diva, start by making sure you have everything packed well (and safely) before embarking on your next journey.

You double-check your packing list.

  • Make sure you have everything you need.
  • Double-check your packing list before leaving for your trip, and do a final check once you get to the car or train station. This will ensure that no important items are left behind!

You plan to work while you’re on the road.

You may have a full-time job, but you want to be able to work from anywhere. And while you’re at it, you’d like to always be productive. If this sounds like your ideal lifestyle, then congratulations! You are one of the Traveling Divas!

You’re not afraid to ask for help.

Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but rather, a demonstration of confidence and self-reliance. You don’t have to be an expert at everything; in fact, most of the time it’s better to ask someone who knows what they’re doing than try to figure it out yourself. When it comes to travel, this can apply in many different ways – for example: if you’re lost or trying to find your way around somewhere new (especially if there are language barriers), ask someone who works at the hotel or restaurant where you’re staying, this can save you hours of frustration and confusion! Or maybe you’ve been given recommendations by friends but aren’t sure where exactly they were talking about – having someone show you how things work will make sure that all those comments on social media are actually valid (and not just bogus tips).

You plan your wardrobe in advance if you’re attending an event or have meetings scheduled.

If you’re planning a trip, there are many things that you can do to make sure that your wardrobe is ready and stays in good condition. For example, if you have meetings scheduled during the day and an evening event, it’s best to plan a few outfits ahead of time so that nothing goes wrong. You can avoid the stress of last-minute wardrobe decisions by packing more efficiently and having more time to relax before each event. You’ll also save money on last-minute wardrobe changes if they are unavoidable!

You always travel with a comfortable set of shoes and one set of heels.

If you’re a true traveling diva, then you know that it’s important to have a comfortable pair of shoes (and perhaps even two!) on hand every time you go out. Why? Well, let me tell you.

You see, if you want to be able to explore an unfamiliar place with ease and comfort, then having a pair of comfortable shoes is essential. And let’s face it: no matter how stylish or expensive they are, high heels aren’t the most practical option for walking around town—even if they do make your legs look amazing!

On the other hand, if there’s somewhere important that you need to go—a fancy party perhaps? Or maybe even just dinner at one of those restaurants where people wear ties!—then being able to change into heels before leaving home is crucial. So having both options available makes sense when traveling!

Your carry-on bag is packed with emergency items.

  • Bandages, gauze pads, and bandages
  • A first aid kit
  • A sewing kit/needle and thread
  • Safety pins (especially the big ones with multiple uses)
  • Travel size tissues or toilet paper rolls to use as a toothbrush holder while traveling through airports (just make sure they are still wrapped in plastic so they don’t get dirty)

You have a travel checklist for your belongings.

You know what you need, where it is, and have a checklist to make sure it’s all there. You also keep track of everything in your luggage so that nothing gets left behind.

You know how to book a flight like a pro (and how to get around the fees).

  • When you’re shopping for flights, don’t rely on those generic online travel search engines. Instead, check out the airline’s website directly for deals. You’ll usually find promotions and discounts that aren’t available elsewhere—plus, you can often book through an airline’s official site rather than going through a third-party site like Expedia or Priceline. You may even find coupons to use during checkout!
  • Keep an eye out for sales: Airlines run them from time to time (usually after holidays), so keep checking back regularly in case there’s been one recently and your destination has dropped in price since then? If it did—score!

You pack light, but still, manage to look glam.

If you’re traveling from one place to another, you probably have a bag with all of your essentials. But what if the airline loses your luggage? Or did its contents get lost at the baggage claim? You don’t want to be stuck in a new place without any clean clothes or personal hygiene products! It’s best to keep it simple when traveling by plane. Bring only what you need and leave everything else behind. Don’t bring more than two pairs of shoes—and wear one pair while wearing another as your “on deck” shoes.

Pack a carry-on bag instead of checking suitcases

The easiest way to avoid losing luggage is by using a carry-on suitcase instead of checking bags at the airport check-in counter (which is usually located outside). A carry-on bag should contain everything that could possibly fit inside its confines: clothing, toiletries (including toothbrush), electronics such as phone charger/cord and laptop cord/charger/computer itself…anything else? Is there room for anything else? If not, then ditch it! Common sense here applies as well: don’t pack anything fragile or valuable into this smaller space unless absolutely necessary; otherwise there may come consequences later down the road when trying out these items again during travel time—especially expensive electronics like laptops.

You can always find a way to connect with traditional Wi-Fi.

The Traveling Diva knows that a little bit of Wi-Fi can go a long way, and she’s ready to find it.

If you find yourself without access to traditional Wi-Fi, there are still some options for getting online. You could use a hotspot (if you have an unlimited data plan), or you might try using a VPN. Another option is to get your hands on some portable hotspot devices, which can connect up to 10 devices at once. If all else fails, head over to the nearest coffee shop or airport and look for free Wi-Fi networks—there’s no harm in asking if they’re open before sitting down with your laptop!

Your passport is always in your carry-on bag, close by at all times.

You know that when traveling through airports and other areas where there are high-security levels, it’s important to have your passport on hand so that you can present it when asked to do so by law enforcement or border control officers. If they don’t see the document right away, they might think you’re hiding something and detain you longer than necessary while they investigate further.

Your passport should also be kept safe in an area of the airport where there is minimal traffic or foot traffic—someplace that’s unlikely to get bumped into by someone else who isn’t paying attention as well. This way no one else can accidentally damage or lose it!

You always have a copy of your itinerary on hand and stored electronically in case of an emergency.

A true traveling diva knows that her itinerary—whether it be a physical copy or an electronic one—is always at the ready. In case of emergency, you’ll have immediate access to all relevant information about your flight, hotel, and main activities. It’s also important to make copies of these documents and store them in different locations so you don’t lose any precious details if your luggage gets lost or stolen.
