Traveling is one of the most amazing pleasures that this world has to offer, but some small details could affect your whole journey positively or negatively. In this post, we’ll talk about 10 useful tips to have an enjoyable trip.
1- Eat the local food
When traveling somewhere new, the most exciting part is trying the local food. Then don’t hesitate, go for it!
2- Don’t plan strictly beforehand
Fun things usually happen unplanned. Don’t have a strict plan or you’ll miss a lot of great memories and stories.
3- Insurance, Insurance, Insurance
Each year, countless travelers get injured abroad and fall into big debts, just because they didn’t buy travel insurance! Be smart and buy travel insurance before stepping out of your country.
4- Have some passport photos ready
This one may seem odd, but it comes handy if you need to apply for a visa or even a simple sim card.
5- Take selfies
Some travelers ask others to take their pictures and after going back home, they notice the supposed to be “dreamy photo” is a disaster! Just take selfies instead!
6- Learn a few words in your destination’s language
Not everyone speaks English in other countries and knowing a few words in their language would be more useful than you think. It’s also a sign of respect.
7- Have a few debit and credit cards with you
Have three different debit or/and credit cards with you in case one of them gets blocked by your bank or even gets stolen.
8- Have emergency cash on you
Always have emergency cash with you that is placed in different pockets and bags (even in your socks if you fear of thieves). You never know what’s waiting out there!
9- Don’t lose temper if everything goes wrong
Bad things don’t always happen to others. Sometimes everything goes wrong in your trip and at that point, you have two options, whether to act stupid or control your feelings and move on!
10- Visit the touristy stuff
Touristy places have become busy for good reasons! If you want to be different and visit places with no tourists (not talking about nature) there’s a good chance of wasting your precious time visiting less worthy places!
