Life changes when you hit 30 — in a good way. When I turned 30, I felt like I really settled into myself and my life. I learned to live with things I didn't like in my 20s (myself, mostly), and I learned to let go and just really live. I also have made new promises to myself for when I travel, and a lot of them revolve around spending a little extra money here and there to travel more comfortably. Sure, travel is about going outside your comfort zone, but I'd rather not spend extra time in an airport or on public transportation if I don't need to. I want to be on my vacation, not spending forever getting to it. So, friends, if you're in your 30s or very near that point in your life, take my advice and do these nine things to enrich your vacation.
