In April 2007, I will be going to Philippines & Japan for 6 weeks and was looking for some advice from anyone in regards to travelling, things to see/do, be aware of, etc... It has been 22 years since I've been overseas and not quite sure to expect. I keep making lists of everything, but I'm not sure what I'm forgetting. I will be going with the parents and within a week I get back, I will be moving into my new house with the BF -- so I'm feeling a little anxiety about everything! The only thing I've have really done on that list is get my passport. I need advice on things like: Do I need any type of shots before I travel? Types of currency/cheques/cards to use? Will I be needing to buy different chargers/plug-ins for my electronics? What to expect when I get to destination airport. Things I should & should NOT bring. Things I should do before leaving. Buying airline tickets -- online, ok? Travel insurance / Security Will customs charge me for any of my shopping? Any other advice? Thanks so much in advance!
