I’ve been traveling nonstop for the past decade and I love every minute of it. The travel bug bit me 10 years ago when I studied abroad in Europe and decided to not only go with my group, but leave my group at the end and travel all by myself. This is truly a life-changing experience and something that catapulted me into a true traveler. I wanted to share my many years of travel tips with you today. This is not an all inclusive list of course is there so much more that I could write about.
Find your Zen
When you travel, so much can go wrong. So much constructs you out. This is why you need to learn to except the things that you cannot change and not get frazzled by the things that you cannot control. If your flight gets delayed, just enjoy the time that you have left at your current destination. Look at everything that happens as an adventure
Get a Headstart
When you’re traveling to can be awfully tempting to sleep in, but you can beat the crowds and sightsee in a much better place when you wake up early in the morning. Also great time to take pictures as late as nice and soft.
Carry extra cash
You never know when you might run out of cash for an emergency might arise. I recommend taking extra cash with you or better yet taken some travelers checks with you for an emergency basis.
Accept cultural differences
Can phil but isolating and nerve-racking being in a place that has different values than your own, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying yourself. In fact, it’s arrogant to assume that your values are right in their values are wrong.
Try Local food
Just because the place has McDonald’s, doesn’t mean you should either. Make every effort to try the local food and you won’t regret it. Even if it sounds an appetizing to you, you never know. I might be one of the best things you’ve ever tasted. Or at least provide a great story.
