Travel Tip of the Day: Just Go

BathroomJust Go
I do a fair number of group tours and whenever we’re offered the chance to use the bathroom, I go, even if I don’t have to. That’s because a few minutes later nature might call, and I might not have easy access to a bathroom. That’s why it’s always best to empty the tank when you have a chance. It’s old, simple advice, and you may have heard it before, but you’d be surprised how often people forget—or ignore—it. You don’t want to be the person who has to hold the group up again, shortly after everyone’s already taken a bathroom break.

  1. I go every chance I get and always bring paper when travelling in foreign countries. You just never know when the next opportunity might present itself.

    I have lived by this tip for over 50 years now. An excellent idea!!

  3. AMEN!

  4. I learned to go whenever there is a chance while in the Army.

  5. This tip is also important to remember while waiting in the airport to get on a plane. The airport bathrooms are so much cleaner and larger than the ones on an airplane.
