I can claim these among my finest traveling accomplishments: Missing two flights in one day (for a work trip!) and missing both the departing and return flights on another trip. Sad, but true!
Because of my clear knowledge and expertise on this topic, we’ve pulled together the below SlapDash-approved tips:
SlapDash is the brainchild of longtime friends Jill Alfond and Nicole Kaldes who, by the numbers, have a combined 40 years of writing experience, 100(ish) missed flights each, have spent thousands of dollars in change fees and have encountered too many characters/experiences to count.
SlapDash isn’t your average travel site, which is exactly why we started it — because travel writing has become, well, a bit too serious. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that,” but here at SlapDash we find travel a bit more entertaining because, let’s face it, nothing ever goes as expected. If you’re like us and not 100% perfect, SlapDash is for you. Think of us as goop for imperfect humans, where you’ll find discoveries, actually helpful, insider tips, city guides, shopping recommendations, funny sh*t, characters we’ve met and real — but really irreverent — travel stories to hopefully inspire your next trip.
We’ve been hilariously botching travel since high school. Learn from our mistakes.
