7 Amazing Tips For People Who Love To Travel

IMG_1039

Anyone that was born to be on a vagabond journey and travel the world does so for two reasons and two reasons only: life should be filled with adventures, not things, and they want to have stories to tell not things to show. As far as we are aware, we won the lottery by being born and we should all spend time seeing the world.

It doesn’t matter whether it is the Greek islands, the English countryside or the jungles of Indochina; traveling has so many benefits. And to help you get the most out of your travels from here on out, we have come up with a list of amazing and useful travel tips and tricks. Enjoy.

1. Wake Up Early
You get a real feel for a place when you wake up at sunrise and see the locals starting their days too, opening their shops and commuting to work under the sound of birdsong. But more than this, you get to explore the best tourist attractions without battling the crowds, with that soft light making pictures look amazing.

2. Meet The Locals
It can be so easy to gravitate toward other backpackers or travelers, and there is nothing wrong with that. But every so often try and mix with the locals. Have a conversation with them, learn a few key phrases, learn from the people you meet and know that they will enrich you more than the sights you see.

3. Have A Scarf
Something lightweight like a sarong is perfect as it can be used for all sorts of things. It can be used as sun protection, as warmth, as protection against sandstorms, as a sleeping mask and even as makeshift towel. It is an amazing travel accessory to have.

4. Always Take Photos
Travelers want to see as much of the world as possible and that means you may only get to see each place once. That’s where photos come in. Learn how to use a Selfie stick and you will have memories of you all of the world that will last forever; you at Niagara Falls, the Buddhist temples of Gion, Ayers Rock, enjoying the Inca Trail and everything else you hope you’ll never forget.

5. Sometimes Splurge
Most people that travel become experts in the art of budgeting and being frugal, which is essential. But don’t be afraid to splurge sometimes; treat yourself to those experiences you will regret not doing. It could be a bungee jump or something. It could be having a few days in a luxury hotel or at a spa. Maybe just having a wild night out. It’s good to do this sometimes.

6. Be Empathetic
When you are traveling to new places you are going to come across new people, new cultures, new opinions, and beliefs. Listen to these and embrace them. It is arrogant to believe your opinions are correct. By doing this you will grow as a person and that is the most important thing.

7. Always Say Yes
By saying no, you never leave your comfort zones. You never learn anything new or try something different. Yes opens up a world of adventure. You meet news people, try new foods, find places off the beaten track and more. Saying yes is the start of almost all great stories.
