While traveling is both an amazing experience and a massive privilege, there can still be a feeling of worry or doubt when preparing and even arriving. Make the best out of your trip by following these tips and you’ll be sure to have a wonderful time.
Don’t leave packing to the last minute! A good rule of thumb is to make a list, pack a few days before, and then try to get rid of one item before you leave. Even if everything feels essential, less is really more when you’re traveling.
You do not want to find out when you arrive that it will be raining every day you’re visiting when each activity you want to do is outside. Check the weather and research where you’ll be going to see if you need to make any reservations or arrangments before you arrive.
Even if you’re only in a place for a short amount of time, don’t plan every second of your day down to the last minute. Set a goal to see a certain amount of sites or do a few activities, but allow yourself to actually enjoy where you are, sit down, have a coffee, and people watch.
