Thoughtful tips when friends and family travel
One of the best ways to help out a friend or relative who is traveling is to ease their worries back home. Lending a helping hand while someone is traveling is one of the greatest gifts you can give them.
A.) Many people have pets that need feeding and care. Offer to look in on the cat while they are away or take their dog for walks. Send updates and photos of their beloved pets so your traveling friend has peace of mind while they are away.
B.) Another way you can help is by picking up your friend’s mail while they are traveling. Simple things you do can provide great help in relieving worry from the traveler’s mind while they are away.
C.) Let them know you’ll water their plants or mow their grass.
D.) Even just offering to keep an eye out on their home can provide big relief to a traveler who is away for an extended period of time.
These are simple, yet important things that you can offer when a friend or loved one is about to embark on a vacation or trip. You can be sure they will be very grateful for your kindness and generosity.
