I like to find out about boat trips that are available on our travels & cheap accomodation so I can spend more on exploring the area . I am planning a trip for next year & will check out specials on the train through Europe in case it is cheaper to buy a pass before we leave .
I don't like having to much planned in advance tho !
Hi ya freecampingaussie! I agree, not too much planning but just key elements. For your trip to Europe it would definitely be a good idea to check prices and specials on rail passes! Thanks for comments as always:)
I research the history of the area, the people, and the architecture I will see. That seems to me much more important than the accommodations!
Cultural customs; the "do nots" of the country you're traveling to; the best, cheapest motels to stay in; what food not to eat, and what food is recommended; must-see sites; and also sites that are usually unknown to tourists.
The ancient and the present life of the inhabitant are important to know to get the real pleasure of visiting a place.
Culture is important and interesting of a place, i agree H P Roychoudhury. It adds to the whole experience of the place. i have been in remote villages where a foreigner was a new thing,so knowing their customs and way of life was very beneficial.
I try to learn some of the language - as many of the important words as possible. I also try to find different things that are nearby where i'll be staying such as restaurants and tourist attractions.
I think what i would like to research first is the weather condition of the country I will be trying to visit so I will be able to bring the right clothes, the local currency. The level of security and safety measures afforded to foreigners. Clean, safe and budget friendly food and accommodations, safe means of transportation. The history, cultures, traditions, practices and beliefs of the locals, landmarks for ease of navigation and transfers, hospitals & local police authorities and offices of government agencies especially the embassy in case of emergency and eminent danger and other travel concerns. Of course, the beautiful places/spots I intend to visit.
Hi Suzie HQ,
these days I generally research global volcanic activity to see which country I'm going to be stranded in,
