Tip 1: Update your 2016 travel datebook.
Family wedding? Conference? Business trip? Get the dates and places onto the calendar.
Once you know when and where you’re already going, you can figure out if you want to add additional time to any of those trips, so you can leverage your travel time and airfare.
Or not. If you’re of the school that fish and family both have a three-day limit, or your annual professional conference is in West Boringsville, you can save those precious vacation days for a trip that really makes your heart sing.
