Hello, guys. I'm sure there are a lot of you who have travelled the world around... As a travel freak myself, I always learn something new. So my question is: What is the one tip you'd like give the fellow travellers? It's hard to ask that, but... Just one.
Hi guies! My only one tip is: Try to find out scope during travel to contribute minimum a single hour/day/week for doing something beneficial for people in trouble or people in sufferings which acts can obviously gain mental satisfaction of the traveler.
We enjoyed traveling to Scotland last year and totally enjoyed it. Have been to many other places also. Give yourself time to relax - don't overschedule yourself. We tried to see every castle in Scotland, but our energy ran out. Just soak in the culture and enjoy the people. They are what the country is all about.
Appreciate that it is diferent to home and enjoy learning, trying new food , nothing worse than tourists putting place down because they cant get the food from home , Why travel if your not going to try new experiences ?
If your really want to enjoy the people, the culture go where the locals go, eat what they eat.. check out their art and craft, being adventurous may expand your tastes and interests. Lots of fresh fruits and bottled water.
I would say be flexible. Sometimes things won't go as planned. For example, like my trip to Thailand in Mar 2010. I didn't expect any political protests. But because of it, well I changed my itinerary and did some things which I didn't think I would have done. But I did give the Grand Palace a miss. I will probably visit it the next time I go
We set up an online docuemnt storage and made scanned copies of passports and any valuable documents so that they can be accessed form anywhere online if needed when they get lost.
Never trust padlocks and we found that leaving bags and laptops in the train station lockers is the best. Just take what you need for your travels locally and use the locker as your base for each country.
We took pics with our phones and then download via usb when we get back.
