Invaluable travel tips:
Get into the habit of carrying baby wipes or hand sanitizer in your day pack or handbag:
As there may be instances where you need to clean your hands, where clean water or soap may not be available, it’s a wise idea to get into the habit of carrying baby wipes in your day pack or handbag. Alternatively, you may prefer the idea of packing a travel sized hand sanitizer in your day bag.
Travel with a hard suitcase:
While soft shell suitcases are a lot lighter than hard suitcases, the latter are a lot sturdier and will do a far better job at protecting your valuables than a soft shell suitcase.
Don’t be afraid to ask locals for directions or advice:
Sometimes you can save yourself a lot of time by putting your smart phone and Google Maps down and asking a friendly, approachable local for help. As in most cases locals will be more than happy to help you out. Plus, it’s a lot more fun interacting with individuals from different countries and cultures, than to spend your entire vacation looking down at your smart phone.
It’s also a great idea to ask locals for advice on their favorite eateries and things to do as you may be able to discover a hidden cafe or restaurant or a little known swimming hole by simply asking locals for their advice.
Wash small items of clothing in your accomodation’s bathroom sink:
Instead of wasting valuable travel time trying to find a convenient laundromat, you’re far better off washing small items such as your bathing suits and underwear in your accomodation’s bathroom sink. If you hang up your laundry in your shower over night, you should find that small items will be dry and ready to wear by the next day. Especially if you’re traveling through warm destinations. If you find yourself trying to dry clothes that you’ve hand washed in a sink in a cold climate, simply use a heater or a hairdryer in order to dry your clothes quickly.
Pack a scarf which can be used in a wide variety of situations:
Not only can a stylish scarf be used as a fashion accessory but you can also use a scarf to cover your shoulders or legs, to enter a church or a temple or to cover your legs on a cold plane flight. You can even even you a scarf in order to block your car windows, if you need to get changed into your bathing suit at a stunning beach.
Make sure to budget $1000 more than you think you need:
In order to avoid missing out on once in a lifetime opportunities that arise when you travel, it’s a great idea to budget $1000 more per trip than you think that you need. That way you won’t miss out on opportunities such as getting to abseil down a mountain or getting to enjoy a camel trek through the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.
So if you’re always looking forward to your next vacation, it’s a great idea to keep all of the invaluable travel tips which are listed above in mind. As they’ll help you get the most out of your future trips.
