“Better weight than wisdom a traveller cannot carry.”

– Hávamál (The Old Norse Codex from the Viking age)

Plan your vacation days

As we highlighted as part of Our Mission page, it has been estimated that 705 million vacation days go unused in the United States every year. One way to make sure you use your vacation days is to plan them in advance! We love this tool from the US Travel Association that lets you plan out your year’s vacation days in an easy to use calendar. Once you’ve completed the outline, you can export the calendar and use it to keep track of your time off!

It’s available to people from 140 countries and it’s designed to cover overseas medical, evacuation, baggage, and a range of activities.

Be sure to check out our Travel Insurance Guide to read our story about the time we were stranded in Argentina and World Nomads saved our vacation.
