Travel Tip of the Day: Bring a Water Bottle

San Francisco SFO T2 -006Bring a Water Bottle
I can’t believe I’ve never made this a tip before! This has to be in the top-20 all-time travel tips. It’s simple, but a lot of rookie travelers don’t know to bring an empty water bottle through security so they can fill it up at a water fountain on the other side. Some airports like SFO’s T2 even have hydration stations (above)!
