Travel Tips You Learned the Hard Way

For this month's Of Recent Note, tell us the travel tips you learned the hard way.

The good part about all the horror stories brought back from traveling is that there's usually a lesson to be learned. (Don't overpack your luggage with the creaky zipper. Do assume that Vaseline will be considered a potentially dangerous liquid.) This month's Of Recent Note, as summer vacations take form and volcanic ash gets in everyone's way, is: Travel Tips You Learned the Hard Way. So share your advice gleaned from security lines, random searches, overbooked flights, gate-rushing, the unglamorous magic of train travel, gas stations or hotel rooms straight out of an urban legend, and any other experiences that left you battle-scarred but with wisdom to share. Send entries (about 150 words each) to by Tuesday, April 27.
