Tips for traveling overseas

Traveling is a wonderful hobby. That is why so many people want to know tips for traveling abroad. Many people think traveling requires a lot of money and it makes sense; especially if you are traveling overseas, imagine the flight, hotel, and anything else. However, traveling with a lot of money somehow makes the sense of adventure slowly disappear. Traveling overseas with limited budget forces you to be creative, communicate with local people, and have an unforgettable experience. But, to each their own, I sometimes prefer traveling with enough budgets and enjoy the ‘luxury’ as well. Whatever your preference is, here are some universal tips for traveling abroad, so you will know what to prepare for your vacation.

1. Keep Extra Cash Money

The first tips for traveling abroad are money. We live in the world controlled by money. So always be prepared. To save yourself in an emergency situation, make sure to stash some cash in some different places. I suggest you keep at least a couple hundred of dollars. If you somehow lose your wallet, cannot use your card, or there’s no money in the ATM, you will be glad you bring cash.

Hide your cash in some of these stash spots, socks, shoe, a personal hidden part of your backpack, a toiletry bag, anywhere. Just be creative.

2. Meet Local People

Make sure to try meeting start a conversation with some local people, don’t just group with other foreign travelers. Basic English is now commonly spoken by people all over the world, especially in the destination place. So communicate with local people will be easier than you think, plus if you combine it hand gestures and body language to help the lack of spoken communication. You can learn much from people who live in the country you are currently visiting for all their live. People will make you trip unforgettable.

3. Bring a Scarf

Bring a scarf, or you can use a shemagh, sarongs will also work. The simple piece of cloth is one of the most useful accessories when traveling because it has tons of practical applications. The scarf is great for sun protection in a hot country, an eye mask, a little towel, carrying some stuff and much more.

4. Take a Photo, A lot.

Seeing all the beautiful places and meeting these amazing people at that time is probably your last time. So remember them forever with photos. Take a ton of pictures and don’t worry about taking pictures often, no one cares, you are a tourist. Photos are the greatest souvenir.

Photos don’t cost a dime and don’t take up space in your bag. You only have to bring a ‘big’ memory card, big capacity not big in size.

5. You will always find A Way

A good mindset tips for traveling abroad. Everything is possible. If you have a trouble when about to go somewhere or do something there, don’t give up. There will be a way, you just haven’t found the one yet or met the right people yet. Don’t listen too much to those who say you can’t do it, try it for yourself and prove them wrong.

10 Great Places To Include In Your 2017 Travel Itinerary

Traveling around the globe can be really fun! But looking for places to go to can sometimes be a very time-consuming task. The Lonely Planet know you want to go places, but don’t want to spend hours looking for them. And we are with them.

Lonely Planet, which is composed of travel pros, published their annual “best places” book (a compilation of their travels). It contains the best cities and countries to visit, activities to do, and when is the best time to go. We just love their list, year after year.

TUNISIA

There is no denying that this country had some troubles recently, causing some tourists to stay away from it. But that means few tourists to see and more of the country and its people, and of course cheaper prices!

BURKINA FASO

Yes, this country may also pose some danger to foreigners, too, but don’t let this hinder you from experiencing the very lively and lovely Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso’s capital. You can also experience great wildlife spotting here.

BALI

When you are on a tight budget, Bali can be the place for you. You’ll find great culture, beautiful structures, and cheap spa treatments along the way. If you have some additional money, Bali also offers not-so-cheap but quality places to stay, with ample air conditioning, and distinctively Balinese style.

PORTUGAL

Barcelona may not be too budget-friendly, but Lisbon is. What’s more is that Lisbon don’t have many people, letting you enjoy the ambiance of the city. You can also find great beaches, like the Algarve region, which is a favorite for family getaways and surfers, and it doesn’t chug much on your money.

SAMOA

This is another favorite among those who doesn’t have too much to spend. These islands has a lot of beauty to show off, and you’ll be amazed with the simplicity and beauty of undeveloped places have. Such a paradise, indeed. Start your trip by jumping off from Australia or New Zealand.

SHANGHAI

Yes this bustling city may pose some risk to your lung health, but its beauty is such a wonder. You can find low-cost dorms for as low as $10 and walk around the streets while grabbing a handful of street foods. You may also find great food on its popular restaurants.

URUGUAY

This may not be the most budget-friendly place ever, but the beaches here are truly awesome. You may also enjoy a laid-back stay at Montevideo, or a fun and hip beach scene.

ROMANIA

Looking for the best value for your money? Try Romania. Many travelers go here for leisure, and they don’t leave the country unsatisfied. It may be in Europe, but you don’t have to worry about airfares – budget airlines go in and out of Romania, connecting it to the rest of Europe.

TAIWAN

Like Shanghai, you may also enjoy Taiwan’s busy street scenes, street foods, and cheap dorms. It is much, much cheaper to stay here than Seoul, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. You may even camp on its national parks, and you can get around cheaply through trains.

SOUTH AFRICA

If you are looking for a country where you can find great mixture of cultures, then visit South Africa. If you don’t want to mix with large crowds or uncomfortable weather, then you should come here during the shoulder months (February, March, September, and October).
