Several countries, thousands of flights and endless road trips. It’s the life of a travel writer, and it teaches you a lot of righteous things. I would like to share some of my travel tips with you as I have found them to be very useful on every trip I have taken.
It’s time to talk to different people. The waiter, concierge, bar staff or that customer sitting at the table next door who looks good. Ask them about what to see and you’ll find that people will love to share their tips and knowledge with you. Believe me, a lot of people get nervous, but strike up a random conversation and you’re just one step away from the next hidden gem.
Get out of bed
It is the most difficult thing to deal with, especially for those who like to stay in bed a little longer than usual. Better to get up early as there is a lot going on before brunch time. So get out there and head to a dinner for breakfast in Washington or hit the best beach in Italy before the hordes of tourists arrive. Believe me, you won’t regret this one; you can sleep as much as you want once you get home.
Keep your phone charged
There is nothing worse than running out of technology due to a dead battery. Keep an external battery with you so you never run out of battery.
Join the cloud
This iPhone isn’t worth any value, and that’s for one main reason: the pictures. Memories are the best thing you do on a trip, and without them the charm of going on a trip will be lost. Gone are the days when you used to keep manual backup. Apple now protects you with iCloud, set up your cloud and access all photos and videos from anywhere.
Remember your favorites
Remember that fantastic restaurant you went to when you last visited New York four years ago? No? It’s bad! Next time just ask your phone to remember it, in Google Maps write only the name of the place, then click “Save”. This method will help you to star it so that you can always go back and check it.
From Amsterdam to Cambodia, being strapped for cash isn’t much. You won’t find ATMs everywhere, and you can’t always use your debit / credit cards to pay for hotels, bars, and restaurants. Take with you an emergency sum of approximately $ 150 or the local currency of the destination you are visiting.
