Things To Keep In Mind When You Travel

Whether you are a first-time traveler or you  travel often, the art of traveling requires certain acts of mindfulness. No matter if you are a solo traveler, a packaged-tour-lover or a weekend adventurer to a far off place, it is important to keep some basic things in mind when you jet off to another country.

1. Not everything always goes the way we planned
2. This isn’t your home
3. Try starting your conversation with local language
4. Go to the places you want to go, and then ask around for the hidden gems
5. Don’t cram too much in
6. Enjoy the local cuisine
7. Get out of town
8. Buy local

Not everything always goes the way we planned

 

Regardless of how much research you do pre-trip, how much planning you sculpt, things go wrong. Flight are delayed, bus schedules are wrong, you may get on the wrong bus, might you may end up in the middle of nowhere while traveling, might your day trip will  cancel  because of flight cancellation . Don’t let those things ruin your experience. Reinforce Positivity in Yourself. If the bus or flight as you planned is canceled then there might be some alternative. There might be another route, may be you can take taxi instead of bus, may you can hike to that place or simply changing the course of your travels. The more you can roll with the unexpected, the better time you will have.

When you are in some other country, try to start conversation with their own language. We are not saying fluent in another language but people appreciate it. Learn the basic greeting and how to tell people you don’t speak their language before you go off speaking English language. Depending on how awful your accent is, they’ll automatically revert to English if they feel hard to understand you.

Comfort foods is the food which provides a nostalgic or sentimental value to the consumer but try the food which you have never tasted before. Know about the local cuisine and ingredients required to prepare the food and Gain more authentic experience, step outside of your comfort zone and try something, anything that is different from what you are used to.

Some of the most enchanting places aren’t in the main locales you visit. Staying in town lets you explore, but getting out of town can really open your eyes to local life and culture.

Supporting locals by purchasing their goods is a great way to give back to the place you go. Buy the local to strengthen the economic the economic base community. Buy local rather than nationally owned business for the following reasons:

  • Sustainable
  • responsible tourism
  • Support Community Groups
  • Reduce Environmental Impact
  • Get Better Service
  • Put Your Taxes To Good Use
  • Buy What You Want, Not What Someone Wants You To Buy
  • Encourage Local Prosperity
  • Buy Local - Support yourself

Always concern about the foreginers behaviour and never forget that you are a guest in someone else's land.you will  never know what  consequences  might accor  because of your action so always care about the what your action can cause and try to be respectful to everybosy.Take your cues from the locals and smile when they smile, and always be aware that you are representing your country on the road.

Others that you must care about

•    Stay ‘culturally aware’ and adapt the way you travel
•    Dress conservatively
•    Let your gut instinct drive your decisions

  • Avoid attracting attention to you – that is, avoid traveling alone or in a large group of a dozen or more
  • Do not expect eye contact on the streets in certain countries – indeed, in some locations this may result in “unexpected or unwanted” invitations
  • Remain what you are – friendly, courteous, polite and dignified
  • Know as much as possible about each country you plan to visit, including it’s history, religion, geography and government
  • Ask permission before photographing strangers who you find “interesting”
  • Report any suspicious person in and around your residence to the Local Police
  • Use common sense
