Most people aren’t born as a savvy travellers. It’s something that only comes with their travelling experience. In the beginning, you make a lot of mistakes. Travel savviness is a process born of missed buses, Scams, Home Sickness, foolish behavior, cultural unawareness, and countless tiny errors. Then, one day, you begin to seamlessly move through airports and integrate yourself into new cultures like a fish to water.
It's now been 6 years since I started my journey to travel around the world.
I’ve compiled an enormous list of my biggest and best travel tips. These are all things that I wish someone had told me before I started traveling, so I hope you’ll find them useful, inspiring, educational, and entertaining.
So Embrace yourself, It consists of long list.
1. Buy Small Backpack/Suitcase
Picking the right backpack is an important part of any trip. Too big and you’ll have too much extra weight to carry around. Or you might not get your bag on an airplane! Too small and you’ll never fit all your stuff in the thing!. Pick the wrong material and your stuff will be soaked in the rain.Good choice of backpack/suitcase will force you to pack light and avoid carrying too much stuff.
There are so many options out there that it can be very confusing to pick the right backpack.
It’s OK to wear the same t-shirt a few days in a row. Take half the clothes you think you will need…you won’t need the rest of it.
3. Travel Insurance is everything
Don’t be foolish. If something goes wrong, you don’t want to be out millions of Rupees in bills. Travel insurance is the most important thing you get that you never want to use.I use Reliance for my travel insurance provider and It is acceptable for VISA process also and I’ve been really happy with them.
4. Carry Extra Passport Photos
Spare passport size photos incredibly useful and saved me a ton of time and hassle. Who wants to wander the streets of some rural town in Cambodia searching for someone who can take your photo? I’ve used them to apply for visas around the world specially where Visa on Arrival applicable,even needed one to buy a local SIM card in Nepal,Bhutan.
