Travel Safety:Make sure that whoever will be driving has a valid driver’s license. In fact, make sure that everyone does. Plans can change on a moment’s notice. Make sure you are aware of exactly how to get to your destination and how to get back. Whoever sits in the passenger’s seat should try to stay awake to keep the driver company. This is especially true if you’ll be driving at night. Falling asleep can be kind of a contagious thing…have you ever noticed that watching someone else doze off often makes you more tired? Accidents are very easily caused by the driver falling asleep at the wheel. If you’ll be traveling out of the country, you’ll need a passport and possibly a visa. Make sure that you know exactly what documents you’ll need. Believe me; travel documents do not arrive quickly, so make sure that you put your application in about six months in advance. Just make sure to give yourself plenty of time.

Beach Safety:Make sure you know the flag system used by beaches. A red flag means you need to stay out of the water because of rip tides and dangerous currents. Yellow means to use extreme caution because there could be dangerous currents present, and blue means that the water is safe (but definitely doesn’t mean throw caution to the wind) Swim only in designated swim areas. If you should get caught in a rip tide, don’t swim against it. You won’t get anywhere, and this only exhausts your body. Swim parallel to the beach until you get out of the current. As much as you hated hearing this from your mom as a kid, you really do need to wear sunscreen and reapply every couple of hours. Believe me, vacationing stops being fun if you fry yourself. Take extra care to cover the areas that you don’t usually think will burn. This includes your ears, hands, and the tops and bottoms of your feet. Remember, you can still get sunburned if the sun isn’t out! Always know where you and your friends are going and how you’re going to get back safely. Stay in a group, and always walk with purpose. People who look lost are easy targets. Most of all, be smart and have fun. Safety isn’t about being paranoid your entire vacation, it’s about having the best time possible while staying out of trouble. Odds are, you’ll return home with a load of great stories and be excited to do it all over again next year!
