  5. If you park at the airport, create a note on your phone before you leave your car with the level and parking spot. As a bonus, Evernote will geotag the note so you can find your car more easily when you return.
  6. Snap a photo of your baggage claim checks, just in case you lose them.
  7. While you're on the trip, jot down thoughts and add photos.
