Traveling Tips for Everyone to make your experience memorable in the good way.
Unlike professional travelers, not everyone is a born traveler. For them, it all comes with their experiences and all. When you just start traveling, you make a lot of mistakes, and it’s Okay!
Missed buses, unawareness of your surroundings, packing disasters, this is all very common among every newborn traveler and even the experienced ones. Although becoming a full proof travel-savvy will take time, but below I am mentioning a few things that might help you achieve that quicker.
In the list of below, I have mentioned some traveling tips that I have found very helpful myself. These tips will not only help you figure out the best way to travel, but will also help you save money, understanding cultural differenced, and overall becoming a great traveler.
So, what are you waiting for?
Let’s start with some of the best packing tips for your travels.
1. Do Carry a Small Backpack
No, I am not talking about carrying an additional backpack along with the rest of them. I have seen people overpack all the time. By going with the small suitcase, you will be forced to pack less and lite.
I am sure that you have done this – “Hey, there is a little space left in my bag, I think I should carry XYZ, maybe I will need it”. Although, you know you don’t.
So, to avoid this, stick with the small backpack.
2. Never Forget Your Towel
In my experience, carrying a towel is one of the basic things I note when packing. This is the one thing that nobody knows when it will come handy. No matter if you are going for a hike or a dive, or a picnic, packing the towel is a must.
3. Always Go With the Extra Pair of Socks
This is one of the best traveling tips that I have gathered over the years that no matter how good of a manager you are of your stuff, during traveling, you tend to lose shit like socks. Especially during a hike, it is very important to have an extra pair of socks handy. So, here you go, pack some extra pairs of socks. Weird but true!
Now, for more packing tips, I will create another article, but for now, let’s jump to the rest of the traveling tips –
4. Always Carry Extra Band Debit / Credit Cards
Having a backup while traveling is the best traveling tip anyone can give you. Especially when it comes to money. No matter how careful you are disasters may happen.
There is a saying “Better safe than sorry”. So, I would always recommend you to carry extra debit/credit cards with you because being cashless or fundless while traveling can become a pain in your ass.
In addition to that, while we are on the financial traveling tips, I must add that it is smart to always go with the no-fee bank cards. It just doesn’t feel right to just give banks your hard-earned money for no good reason, right? So, while you are traveling always prefer the cards that don’t charge for any foreign transaction or ATM fee.

10. Be Smart Visit the Historical Sites During Lunch Time
