- Hone your negotiating skills and ask for complimentary spa treatments and activities available at the resort, beforehand. It's that much harder to get freebies once you're already there, duh!
- Buy that book you've been meaning to read in advance, don't wait to find it at the airport bookstore.
- Make sure you have a fresh holiday playlist on your iPod.
- Leave the check lists, mental notes and other worries behind(yes, you did shut that bedroom window and the gas is turned off as well!)
