Exploring new lands & provinces outside our country always fills us with excitement and curiosity. While it tends to get easier each time we do it, we have to start somewhere. The whole experience can be exciting, and many have learned it the first time they left to travel.
There will be many questions. What will you find outside your motherland? What will the destination throw at you? How will you manage the travel? How much money will you spend? Well, take a deep breath and calm down. We’ll help you to get things right before you board your flight.
Vacation-friendly Destination: As a first-time overseas traveller, look for places which are easier to travel. You may look for destinations which offer visa-on-arrival.
Thorough research helps: Get guidebooks because they usually include maps, keywords or phrases, and give you enough detail on certain sites. Look for events that are expected to take place during your stay there. It’ll help you make sure that you’re not missing the best events going on in the city.
Money matters: Always have an eye on the monetary conversion before you go. Do your math before you travel to get a sense of the conversion rate. Ensure that your credit card is accepted in the country you’re visiting. To be on safer side, always stash local cash. Not every place takes credit cards.
Luggage needn’t hold you back: Each airline has its own set of guidelines for cabin and check-in luggage. Read the airline’s rules to avoid any incremental fees. Also, pack an extra set of clothes in your carry-on bag. Errors do occur, and the airline can misplace your luggage. Don’t be like those travellers who visit the apparel store when they land as they have nothing to wear.
Local knows the best: Meet the locals. Avoid other travellers, and start conversations with local people. Basic English is spoken widely, so it’s easier to communicate. Locals enrich your travels more than sights do
Early bird catches the sight: Rise at sunrise to have the best attractions all to yourself while avoiding crowds. It’s also a magical time for photos due to soft diffused light, and usually easier to interact with locals.
Many people who wait to travel the world, never do.
Travelling doesn’t mean that you have to sell all your stuff and become a vagabond. Just travel and explore more than you do.
