If you have recently discovered the joys of traveling one of the leading things in your mind must be about how to make it the most fuss-free. Let’s face it, some of us get to travel only once a year. So, once a year, we want to ditch the planning and roam around.
However, given how hard it is to make travel plans that are not cumbersome, fuss-free travel remains a distant dream. Sometimes you want to travel and not work every single day while you are at it. So, how do you manage that? Here are five tried and tested tricks.
Never pack bare-essentials
I know what your life coach said, I know what your guru said too. But, no matter where you are going to, bare-essentials are never enough. You will thank me for that bunch of rope when you are in the jungle for three nights straight. Also, getting changes of clothes at regular hours during summer trips is common sense. Pack some extra clothes and stuff in; you might have to carry a bit more, but, you won’t be fussing about things at the last moment.
Pick the best hotels
A sage person (probably, your mom) once said, “There is nothing better than planning.” Now, when you go on a trip, you don’t want to spend the entire night finding hotels and car rentals. TripHobo it! Plan your vacations out well, and you would never have to think a second time when you are actually on the trip about the small details. Also, no one wants to finish a day of epic exploration by jumping into a dirty bathroom.
Find locals who help
You might have read two hundred blogs and a thousand news articles about the places you are visiting, but, there’s nothing better than a local friend to show you around. Get yourself a person who would not only roam with you but, get you the best deals at gift shops and in food.
This is also a tried and tested way to make lifelong travel buddies. You are never alone when you travel.
After I spent an hour on a jungle safari without any food even though I was famished for a long while, I always carry snacks. It can be anything you like, but, for long trips where the food is not always healthy a pack of biscuits can make a world of difference.
Do not underestimate snacks and their value as lifesavers in cases of prolonged travel. Always pack something in for yourself. And a vacation that leaves you feeling sick is not much of a holiday at all.
Always carry something to read
If patience is a virtue, then a book might as well be the most significant path to it. If you think waiting can get to you, go ahead and carry a book. Its an excellent deterrent for prying eyes works well as a pillow and most of all, it’s an entertainment source that doesn’t depend on the internet or the electricity.
So, get your travel gear on and go exploring, be safe, and you will get yourself the warmest of greetings from every road you travel in.
