I consider myself a novice when it comes to travelling, I’ve often found myself lost, unable to translate and wondering how I ever survive.

As I wonder around all corners of the earth, I do find myself discovering new things, learning new ways of life and growing as a person.

Travelling isn’t easy, it’s hard work, sometimes lonely and can cost a lot of money, I have learnt a few things along the way and wish to share some of my experiences with my readers.

Do you Research

This is one I have always vowed not to stick to but it is something I advise you to stick to. Check with your local government for safety reasons, see what other travellers are saying and look up some reviews online.

Don’t Waste Your Days

This is particularly important if you often find yourself enjoying a beer or two in the evenings. As nice as it is to relax and enjoy a beer, don’t let it rule your trip, don’t let hangovers take your days and certainly choose to explore over sitting in a bar.

Meet the Locals

From pointing you in the right direction for landmarks, food and drinks the locals give you an insight into the culture like no one else. So don’t be shy, talk to them, ask their advice and go to the local bars and fully immerse yourself.

Keep Your Options Open

You may have a plan before you go away travelling, this may be for your days, weeks or even months but trust me when I say that things will rarely go to plan.

When things don’t go to plan, don’t stress yourself just take it in your stride and enjoy what other options life gives you.

Learn the Language

Not only will learning the local language help you to integrate with the culture but it will also go a thousand miles in helping you to enjoy your experience. From thanking people for service in a shop to asking for directions, just learning a few phases is so beneficial.

Don’t Skimp on Insurance

You never know what’s going to happen so never, ever skip getting travel insurance.

From losing your luggage to missing a flight and enduring an injury; you never know what life will throw at you so be prepared and put your mind at rest by covering yourself.

Keep in Touch

Before you leave, give your family or friends your outlined itinerary and during your trip, check in with them as much as possible.

This is all made easier by social networking sites but as soon as you get internet or phone signal, just let them know you’re ok and what your plans are.

Take Plenty of Photos

You’ll see and do so much that when you get back home you won’t be able to remember every experience you had.

Take a decent camera with you, it’s worth investing in and take as many photos as you can you’ll look back on these numerous times throughout your life so it’s really worth it.
