Sit down and compile a list of what you will need for your vacation.

Remember to carry a small First Aid Kit (with Aspirin), sewing kit, and a list of your important phone numbers.

Tell someone where you are going and your expected return date. Call them when you arrive and give them your hotel phone and room number.

Bring photo identification with you.

Try to pack clothing of the same color scheme. You'll find it easier to mix and match.

If traveling with a companion, put one set of your ... view more clothes in your companion's suit case and have them do like wise with yours. If one suit case is lost then you will still have something to wear.

Put toiletries and accessories in plastic Ziploc bags to guard against leakage.

Include a few plastic bags for dirty or damp clothes.

With the screening measures in place now, allow for extra time at the airport. You should arrive at the airport 90 minutes prior to departure.

If driving to your destination, check all the fluid levels for your auto beforehand.

Try to distribute the weight evenly in your suitcases, they will be much easier to carry.

If you happen to be on medication, make sure you bring an adequate supply to last your entire trip.

Carry a collapsible suitcase for the clothes, trinkets, and treasure you may buy while on your trip.

Typical polish dishes recommended by myself:
- Barszcz-red betroot soup served with little noodles
- Pierogi- typical Polish dumplins served with meat or with mushrooms and cabbage
- Duck stuffed with apples-typical Polish specialty
- Bigos-(hunter’s stew)- made from meat,cabbage and sauerkraut.

The Best Places in Krakow to Taste Local Cuisine
Submitted by M19243
The best places in Krakow to taste local cuisine are Milky Bars (Bar Mleczny), very cheap (less then 5 Euro for dinner!) places in real old school, communistic design. In my opinion, another one worth mentioning is "Pod Temida", Grodzka Str.
