Traveling checklist for a first-time international flier

August 17, 2017

The wife is all set to fly for the first time ever, and it’s going to be international! I’m sure there are tons of material already available out there, but thought I’d put together something that is more personalized; something that’s likely to make her smile, and still ensure she has a trouble-free journey.
