1. Down slowly
Please try the trail 6 weeks 6 weeks a week. All the good things happen when you actually take the time to explore time. You will learn about the activities that are not in your guide and meet the enthusiastic people to show you around.
Honestly, my best travel experiences took place within the first few days of nowhere. Spend more time in low places for maximum pleasure.
2. Keep good notes
My memory for detail sucks. When I first traveled the world seven years ago, I did not hold a good journal, now I regret it. The names of the people I met, such as my conversations, feelings about the new experience, or the smell of a certain town.
If you ever want to write about your travels, these details are easy. Nowadays I use an amazing note-taking app called Evernote, which I use in my 2nd brain. Useful for all types of applications – Journaling about them afterward from planning travels.
3. Your comfort zone break
Challenge yourself to try things that are usually a concern for you. The more you do it, the more worry you will fade. Not a hiker? Go on higher hikes. Talk to Strangers Talk to everyone. Are you scared of unpleasant food? Eat a wonderful thing you can find.
It works well when it travels because everything is already very different, what’s another new/uncomfortable experience?
4. Do not plan too much
When asked by the readers how many days I should spend in a particular country or city. The truth is, I do not know what you will enjoy or you meet. I thought I’d rocket through Nicaragua in a week or two months, but living there was 4 months.
5. Pack Low Stuff
You do not need 1/2 gear where to go. We’ve done this. It is advisable to pass the packages slowly. My first backpack is full of 70 liters, my current bag is only 38 liters.
For a full-time vagabond, my own everything fits back on my back. If you are not sure about packing something, you do not need it. It can also be purchased even when you need to find what you need in your destination country.
6. Listen to podcasts
Podcasts are awesome. It’s like creating your own personal radio station and filling out the shows and music you always want to hear. I did not think I really looked forward to a 10-hour bus ride. But with podcasts, it’s possible (well, for a comfortable period of seats).
You will time by listening to interviews with amazing storytelling, fun music or expertise. Here are some of my favorites: This American Life, The Moth, Tim Ferris Show, RadioLab, and Smart Passive Income.
7. Cure your body well
Travel can get rid of your body. When you move from place to place, it’s hard to maintain an exercise routine, and many of us slack up. Nor do we sleep enough. Or we eat a lot of cupcakes. I do not beat my teeth.
Remember that your body is good. Get enough sleep, stay hydrated, eat healthily, use sunscreen, and exercise frequently (this is a simple check on body weight, no gym needed!). And, yes, most I guess.
8. Keep in touch
Remember to call your family & friends from time to time. Perhaps surprise them and go to old school by sending a postcard (which is in the mail, Mom!). Travel is not too long, not alone. You constantly meet other people. But most of those relationships are vulgar. So it’s important to keep a strong relationship with people you know best.
9. Get The Beatin Path
I know the cliche, but you should still try. Find out the most interesting and unusual places that have not seen much of the tourism. Although it was not easy to visit, I had many memorable travel experiences. All in all, go to popular sites but do not delete other locations because they are not in the tourist trials.
Please do not understand that a region is remote or dangerous because you have a life-changing experience.
10. Do not Forget Travel Insurance
No one can think that they are sick, wounded or stolen while traveling. But it happens. I shattered my head on a volcano, and I got a deal with dengue fever and lost my laptop to the thieves. With Travel Insurance you do not have to worry about massive hospital bills or stolen gear when eventually happens.
