So travelling is your thing (or at least you want to do more of it this year), but where do you begin and how do you keep it easy and fun?
We’ve put together our top 5 tips for making travel easy and fun so you can enjoy more and worry less.
1: Patience Is Key
Our biggest travel recommendation is to be patient. Don’t worry about things you can’t change. Life is just too short to be angry and irritated all of the time while travelling.
Is the ATM out of money? Great! Take an unplanned road trip to the next town and explore. We know it might be difficult at times, but take a deep breath and remind yourself that things could be worse.
2: Get Up Early To Beat The Crowds
Do you want those Instagram travel photos that look like they were taken on a postcard? You must go out there before everyone else does.
Get up before sunrise to escape massive tourist crowds and have the top sites all to yourself. In the morning, sketchy places are also less risky. Scammers and crooks sleep in, while honest, hardworking individuals get up early…
3: Slow Down To Enjoy Your Trip
Please do not attempt to fit six countries into six weeks of travel. When you take the time to explore, all of the good things happens. You’ll discover activities not listed in your guidebook and meet locals eager to show you around.
In addition, when visiting foreign countries, we strongly advise renting a car. Driving somewhere new can be intimidating, but it greatly expands your chances for adventure! It’s also so much fun.
4: Take Lots Of Epic Travel Photos
Take note of this travel tip. You might only get to see these places and meet these people once in your life. With plenty of photos, you’ll be able to remember them for the rest of your life! Great photos are the ultimate souvenirs.
They don’t cost anything, are easy to share, and take up no room in your luggage. Take a bunch of pics of yourself with other people too; they’ll be more significant than your postcard images later on. Just remember that once you’ve captured your photo, you should step out from behind the lens and take in the scenery.
5: Break Out Of Your Comfort Zone
Experiment with things that normally make you nervous. The more you practise this, the less anxious you will feel. You’re not a hiker? Take more hikes. Do you have difficulty conversing with strangers? Speak to everyone. Are you afraid of strange foods? Consume the strangest thing you can find.
This works so well while travelling since everything is so different; what’s one more new/uncomfortable experience? Nobody knows who you are out here, so you have the opportunity to completely reinvent yourself.
