You should never limit your desires to travel. </p> <p style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.9em; margin-bottom: 10px; color: #777777; font-family: Lato; background-color: #fafafa;">That cheapest flights are not always the best to take Sometimes, to cut down we invariably book the cheapest flights not knowing that there are hidden costs involved. Some of the cheapest flights have paid carry on or check in and some have airports so far that one has to take several transport modes to reach them.</p> <p style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.9em; margin-bottom: 10px; color: #777777; font-family: Lato; background-color: #fafafa;">Keep the frequently used items on the top when you pack. When in hotel, take out only the essentials from the suitcase. This will help you repack every time especially if you are on a multi city tour. Think twice before you buy anything. Do you really need it?</p> <p style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 16px; line-height: 1.9em; margin-bottom: 10px; color: #777777; font-family: Lato; background-color: #fafafa;">Travel light. Nobody remembers your clothes but what you did during your travels. Also, to save space roll clothes instead of folding.</p> Travel Tips http://www.sastoursandtravels.com/blog/travel-tips_7286.htm Thu, 08 Aug 2019 11:50:01 +0530 <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Be Flexible</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">We always plan for delays and try not to get upset when things inevitably go wrong. Patience is extremely important when traveling!</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Make a List</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">About a week or so before each trip, I make a mental list of items I don’t want to forget — which I WILL forget if I don’t write them down. I’ve learned that when I think of something, I need to write it down.</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Learn Common Phrases of the Local Language</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">A simple “Please,” “Thank you,” and “I’m sorry” in the local language goes a long way. I also like to learn the word for beer, but that’s just me.</p> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;"> </p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Don’t Forget an Extra Camera Battery (or Two)</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">Have you ever gotten to that epic sunset photo spot and realized your camera battery is dead and you don’t have a back up? I try to bring at least three camera batteries on all of our trips so that we don’t miss out on that perfect shot.</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Always Bring a Sarong</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">Sarongs can be used as a wrap when you are cold, a towel, a curtain, or a piece of clothing that can be worn dozens of different ways. Solid colors are great, but if you want something that stands out.</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Make Photocopies of Important Documents</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">In my early twenties, I was very good about keeping a copy of my passport in a separate bag from my actual passport. Then I got lazy. Recently, a friend of mine lost her passport at the airport. She was told that if she had brought a copy of it and extra passport photos they would have let her travel. Since she didn’t, she was forced to forfeit a $2,000 flight and a week in Europe. I now carry a copy with me.</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Pack Extra Underwear</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">Undies are small and it’s always a good idea to have a few extra pairs in case of emergencies. Another option is to pack <a style="box-sizing: inherit; background-color: transparent; color: #b00b11; text-decoration-line: underline; transition: color 0.2s ease-in-out 0s, background-color 0.2s ease-in-out 0s;" rel="nofollow noopener" href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0036SBFK2/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0036SBFK2&linkCode=as2&tag=ordintrave-20&linkId=6C52FFJJL3OGCRTM" target="_blank">these quick-dry underwear</a> so you can easily wash them on the road.</p> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;"> </p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Pre-plan Your Outfits</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">I’m a lazy, last-minute packer, so I’ve spent too many trips with all black or all grey outfits because I didn’t plan my outfits before packing. I look back at photos and wish I had put more effort into packing.</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Enquire about the price BEFORE You Take Public Transportation</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">It’s a good idea to ask about the price before you hop on a bus, guagua, or other form of public transportation. We learned our lesson in the Dominican Republic.</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Stay Hydrated on Planes</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">I know it’s fun to get drunk at 30,000 feet, but it’s also much easier to get dehydrated. Staying hydrated — especially on long-haul flights — makes it easier to get over jet lag too.</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Beware of Free Public WIFI</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">I always try to avoid logging into bank accounts or entering any passwords while I’m using free public WIFI at a place like an airport. I’m not as strict about it once I’ve gotten to my hotel, especially if they have a password for their wifi.</p> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;"> </p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Alert Your Bank and Credit Card Company of Your Travel Plans</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">This is a great habit to get into if you don’t want your credit card company or bank to put a hold on your card while you are overseas.</p> <h3 style="box-sizing: inherit; font-family: "Arbutus Slab", serif; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 24px; color: #333333;">Travel First Aid Kit</h3> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;">We pack up a small first aid kit with aspirin, Benedryl, cold meds, Tums, cough drops, bandages, <a style="box-sizing: inherit; background-color: transparent; color: #b00b11; text-decoration-line: underline; transition: color 0.2s ease-in-out 0s, background-color 0.2s ease-in-out 0s;" rel="nofollow noopener" href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006LCQ4Q/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0006LCQ4Q&linkCode=as2&tag=ordintrave-20&linkId=JEGXX2NWKTOSBG3V" target="_blank">Activated Charcoal pills</a> (these are a life saver for traveler’s diarrhea and minor allergic reactions), Neosporin, and other things that we may not always have easy access to when traveling.</p> <p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 30px; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px;"> </p> <div id="ko9v9shzlysywsnv1lry" class="mediavine-video__target-div" style="box-sizing: inherit; color: #333333; font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif; font-size: 19.2px; position: relative;"></div>
