Bring a Keychain Flashlight

reader-travel-tip2Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from Rick S., who says:

“Your hotel room has a comfortable bed. The room is quiet and dark. All is well until you get up in the middle of the night to answer nature’s call and you bang into the dresser. That’s why I always bring a keychain flashlight and keep it on the night stand.”

Great advice. Another option is to bring a nightlight. Thanks, Rick!
