Travelling is meant to be a lot of fun, but if you don’t get it right, you might experience nasty moments that will ruin everything. Some may be old and some new but all in all, the tips shared in this article will come in handy if you are after having an enjoyable, stress-free trip.
1. Backups save the day
Make physical and digital backups of various important documents such as visas, passport, driver’s license, birth certificate, and your social security card. That way, you always have a way to identify yourself. You should also back importantly files and photos on your laptop if you will travel with it.
2. Take a scarf with you
A sarong or a lightweight cotton scarf can save the day depending on what you need. With the ability to act as a head wrap, eye mask, or even a fashion accessory, you will never lack use for a scarf. On a sweltering hot day, you can wet the scarf with cold water and use it to cool yourself.
3. Bring coconut oil
Organic coconut oil has a myriad of uses, from moisturizing to helping with makeup removal. When making a list of the things that you need, don’t forget to include this all-natural saving grace.
4. Pack light and check your measurements
It’s a good idea to pack light and pick your wearables as you go. Other than being convenient, the wearables that you buy when traveling will also be souvenirs when you come back home. Be sure to save a shoe and clothing size conversion chart on your phone.
5. Don’t always be behind the camera
We all want to take as many photos as we can for the memories. While there is nothing wrong with that, don’t spend all your time “getting the shot”. Once you get a good photo, step back and put your camera away so that you can enjoy the view. At times, memory is the best you can get.
