Video: TravelSmith Travel Tips #18 – How To Avoid Festival Mistakes

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for another great travel time courtesy of Richard Bangs and TravelSmith. This time out, Richard has some tips to help us avoid making mistakes while attending a festival or other cultural event. This may seem like a no brainer, but it is a lesson he learned the hard way while visiting Spain to cover the running of the bulls at Pamplona. I won’t spoil the story, but lets just say the reporter got more than he had bargained for. Always wear fast shoes!

  1. AAAh, but it's the unknown that make some of those adventures so fun. Here is another tip I almost learned the hard way. I found this out while traveling to Canada with my son and my laptop got left behind at a cafe. Luckily for me I had a tracer tag on it. A waiter where I ate lunch found it and entered my tracker number on the website and I was sent a text message (and an email) before I ever even knew it was missing. I was able to recover it before leaving Toronto. I'm not sure what would have happened had I not discovered it until the next day when I was 400 miles away. The tags are available through They saved my trip and I now have them on almost everything that goes with me on a trip.
