Traveling? Check Out These Great Tips Before You Leave!

When you hear the word travel, like many people, you probably imagine yourself sitting on a white sandy beach, drink in hand, with clear blue waves lazily lapping into the shore. There are many beautiful travel destinations. This article was written as a checklist before leaving the home, as well as when you are already in your destination.

DO YOUR RESEARCH!

To avoid any awkward confrontations, do some research if you are traveling to a foreign nation. This includes looking up standard phrases such as “thank you,” “how much” and “how are you.” You should also look around for standard customs of the country, such as gestures, so that you can avoid offending anyone with gestures or body language that seem normal to you.

While Spanish is the lingua franca in most countries in the Western hemisphere, remember that Brazil is not one of them. Brazilians speak Portuguese. If you intend to visit Brazil, learning a little Portuguese can turn out to be a lot of help; learning Spanish will be considerably less valuable to you.

In most parts of the world, it is considered good etiquette to ask someone for permission when taking their picture. Many people will become very offended if you take their photograph without asking, and this could even lead to violence. It is better to simply get their permission first than risk offense.

PREPARE FOR EVERY SITUATION.

It’s always time well spent to insure you have critical items with you on your trip. Make a list and check it twice! If the item that you have forgotten in your irreplaceable medicine or perhaps some critical piece of electronics, however, you’re in trouble! Plan ahead to insure this doesn’t happen to you!

When packing luggage for your trip, store your socks in shoes. If you are packing more than one pair of shoes for your trip, save space back packing your socks and pantyhose inside them. Socks and pantyhose can take up a surprisingly large amount of space in your suitcase if packed separately.

Having a good set of maps or road atlas can save one from a possible disaster if they get lost or electronic map devices such as GPS or smart phones run out of battery. Many things can cause electronics to malfunction and stop working. Having backup option can save one’s trip.

When taking a road trip, naturally you’re going to pass things that look interesting that someone in the car may one to stop and see. But you can’t always stop at every interesting spot or your trip would never end. Instead, give each member a “Stop Card.” This way if something comes up that they want to stop and see, they can use their card, and the entire family can stop, no questions asked. You can decide how many each person gets, depending on how much time you have.

If you’re going on a cruise, pack a highlighter in your luggage! There are tons of activities that go on during the cruise and most of the time you’ll get a nice little newsletter that details what’s going on and where. You can use your highlighter to mark which ones you want to do, and save yourself some headaches.

When you are traveling by cruise ship, bring a carry-on bag with you that has your swimsuit in it. Most people like to immediately check out the pool or the hot tub, but it can take a while for your suitcases to arrive in your room. A carry-on bag with a few items in it allows you to begin experiencing the fun right away.

Learn to take it easy. You do not have to follow a strict schedule when you are traveling. If you feel like you must schedule out your vacation, at least pen in a little “nothing” time, where you are free to follow up on anything that has interested you, or just lay by the pool with a drink.

If you plan on visiting the National Parks often, it would be best to invest in a National Park Pass. Each pass costs only 50 dollars and is valid for an entire year at any national park.

If you are traveling in a car, bring a roadside geology book with you. They have a variety of maps, mileage logs and geologic primers that will make your trip a little more interesting. You can use a GPS Tracker Device for more accurate data. They also contain beautiful collections of photographs that will make the scenery around you come to life.

If you must travel with your four-legged friend, rest assured that there are many pet friendly options available. Many airlines will allow your dog or cat to fly with you for a small fee. Check with the airlines to see who is offering the best deals, and what each airline requires for K9 travel.

There are many more things that you might need to check but the list above should pretty much cover the most part and save you time.
