5 tips to enjoy your trip
Whatever the motives that stimulate you to travel; whether it’s for work, tourism, study or visiting relatives, you surely aspire to maximal enjoyment.
Pleasure should be one of the most important goals that drive you to go to the airline office and book tickets. Laughter should be your companion during every minute and second on your journey. You should feel that you’ve become a different and more optimistic person. We want you to achieve all of this, therefore we’re going to give you a few recommendations that will help you enjoy your travel.
Traveling is an exciting experience, and preparing for it is a pleasure itself. However, nothing in the world can go accordingly without good planning.
Did you check your passport, if you need to renew it and/or if you may need a visa?
Did you pack your bag and prepare all your belongings that you need and that you may need?
Well, that is not enough!
Booking tickets and a hotel room is not all. You should first check your budget in order to not be in trouble when you run out of money. You should also check the places you will visit and the activities you may enjoy. If you like bicycling, some places don’t allow that. On the other hand, if you are traveling to India, for instance, you will have a wonderful experience with bicycling in the countryside. The same issue goes with surfing in Hawaii. Meanwhile, if you are visiting Rome, and you are interested in the opera, then you’re absolutely in the right place. Make sure that your interests and plans suit the nature of the place where you’re going. Search for the local events that may be happening in your area which you may be interested in.
Don’t be an unprepared reckless traveler. Make sure before leaving, that you have your passport, visa, bags, money, credit card, suitable clothes, maps, chargers for your mobile, camera and/or laptop. You may also need a dictionary to help you communicate, especially if you’re traveling to a country where they speak a foreign language.
You should be aware of the weather conditions during your stay, since it’s a major factor that will affect your trip. You can check the weather forecast for the coming weeks, thus preventing you from facing any unwanted hassles regarding this issue. Did you know that summer’s in Australia start in December and end on the end of February? More of a reason to spend the Christmas and New Year vacation in Australia!
Watching the news and following the local events of the country you are going to is important if you want a problem-free and safe trip. Don’t forget to read about the country’s health reports from international sites to be sure that you are traveling to a healthy environment.
To have knowledge about the climate, local security and health news will ease your journey and make your stay more enjoyable.
Take advantage of technology:
Travelling nowadays is easier and more flexible than any time before. You should take advantage of all the technology advances of the internet and smart devices. You can now book your flight, hotel and bus tickets online. You can also shop and buy what you need while traveling, from online e-commerce platforms and receive the product to your doorstep.
You will face no trouble knowing about the news, weather conditions, customs, traditions and cultures of the place you’re going to, since you can get them while you’re relaxing on your couch. There are many applications that you can download directly onto your smartphone that can help you communicate with other travelers around the world. It was never easier to check places you want to visit, get helpful news, share experiences and even accommodations. Which is why you should definitely take advantage of technology as much as possible to make your journey easier, more interesting and advantageous.
Be open-minded and unleash yourself:
To travel is to get out of your comfort zone, to change your daily lifestyle and to break your routine. Try to travel with an open time schedule. Give up your conservation and allow yourself to explore life and break the shackles. Give yourself the chance to go out and try new things, like discovering new delicious food and cultures.
Cast your caution and fears away, unleash yourself and enjoy.
Come into contact with local people:
One of the main aspects of traveling is to meet and mix with people, share their daily lives and learn about their lifestyle, discover many rare things, listen to their exciting stories and learn about their different lifestyle habits. Local people are always the best source of information. They’ll always have the most accurate answers for your queries, while having the best recommendations. When you meet different people with different cultures, you’ll learn their true values of love, tolerance, justice, participation, humbleness and cooperation. The humanity and social values you gain from travel are more than its cost.
While getting to know local people, you should also try to meet some tourists as well. Then again, they’re also out to have a good time just like you. As we say, the more the merrier!
Other things you should do:
Make sure you’re going to the right place, avoid overpriced places. Sometimes a touristic advertisement on any television station can be exaggeratedly overpriced. You can plan your journey according to your budget. If you want to go on a trip with the lowest possible cost, you have to take advantage of the low season, where there may be mass reductions of prices from airline tickets and hotels. You can also ask locals for directions to small local restaurants that offer traditional tasty food at reasonable prices, instead of going to the touristic restaurants. Use public transportation, such as; subways, trains, and buses, instead of renting a car or taxi. Take a lot of photos, carry a notebook and write down your memories, buy gifts and souvenirs and keep your memories with each person and culture you learn about. Enjoy!

How to prepare ideal luggage in 5 steps
Eugene Fodor says:
“You don’t have to be rich to travel well.”
Of course, you won’t need a fortune to enjoy your vacation, but whatever destination you’re heading to, the most important process during traveling is preparing your luggage as properly as you can, since it will be your companion during your journey.
Your luggage is the most important item after your passport and tickets. Remember to prepare your luggage in a proper way so that you don’t face any problems.
Here are five important steps to prepare your luggage:
-There is a certain item of luggage for every destination.
-Set your list
-Arrangement, arrangement then arrangement!
-Know what is allowed and prohibited.
1 – There is a certain item of luggage for every destination:
Traveling to Damascus differs from traveling to Guangzhou, China, which differs from traveling to Kuala Lumpur, which again, differs from traveling to Riyadh.
There are certain items that suit the city you intend to visit. For instance, what you may have in your suitcase for spending a safari holiday in Khartoum, is absolutely different from what you may carry on a journey to explore the charm of Beirut, the Lebanese capital, and surely differs from what you may carry in a suitcase for a business trip in Dubai.
At first, ask yourself: Why are you traveling to that destination?
Then you have to research the area of your chosen destination; Read about things such as customs, traditions and climate, to be able to prepare the items that suit the area. It is important to not forget these objects: some suitable clothes, your smart device(s), a camera and any type of medication you are likely to use.
2- Start early:
Try to pack early, the earlier the better. Packing your luggage not long before the date of your trip may confuse you and cause you to forget many items.
Start packing at least five days before traveling, so that you will have more time to arrange your belongings and be able to remember everything you need. Whenever you remember something, immediately pack it in your bag. Packing your bags early before traveling will help you to avoid associated pre-travel tension and will give you enough space to relax and enjoy your travels.
3 – Set your list:
It is better to set a list of everything you may need on your trip. Do not exhaust yourself by taking too much luggage along with you. Take only the necessities that you will need for sure. You will definitely need clothes, however you can’t take your whole closet!
You may take lots of clothes and not find time to wear them all, and while the climate may change; it may be cold in the springtime in some areas, so it’s a good idea to take a light coat, but not all the clothes you usually wear in the wintertime. If your journey is going to be on the shores of the sea, the list will be completely different, since your necessities will differ. You may take items like swimwear, sunscreen and other similar objects.
Forgetting something may make you grumpy. Therefore, putting a list including everything you need to take with you, will make you feel more organized and comfortable.
4 – Arrangement, arrangement then arrangement!
You don’t want your bag to look chaotic, so try to organize things in an orderly fashion. Put similarly related objects close to one another. Put all types of clothes on one side after folding them appropriately.
Place toiletries in a small private pouch in the luggage. Do not put shoes directly next to your clothes. It is advisable to use a tight bag for them. Concerning drugs or quasi-pharmaceutical substances, they should be placed in a separate pocket.
This arrangement and order has several benefits, it protects clothes; especially from creasing, facilitates finding what you need and even gives you extra space for gifts and souvenirs, instead of buying additional bags.
You should not put electronic devices and breakable objects, such as a camera or laptop inside the bag, otherwise they will be liable to shatter during the transportation of the bag. Concerning liquid objects, you should be careful, since they can spill on your bag and spoil everything. Do avoid putting them in your bag as much as possible. If you are obligated to put some type of liquid in your bag, make sure to put it in a tight bag where it won’t be possible for the liquid to seep through.
5 – Know what is allowed and forbidden:
Whatever the country that you’re visiting is, it has, undoubtedly, different customs and habits that you won’t find in your country, so you have to ask, research and learn about what you can and can’t take with you.
If you decide to go to Riyadh, for instance, you should pack some decent clothes in your bag. In Bangladesh, you can’t take thin plastic bags with you, because they’re banned there. You should know that some drugs are prohibited in some places. Also, if you intend to take some yellow clothes while visiting Malaysia, you should reconsider it since yellow clothes are also banned.
Check the things you can put in your bag without causing any trouble for you at the airport or in the country where you intend to enjoy your trip. In addition, be sure to carry the weight allowed in your luggage before departure to avoid any unexpected mulct.
Write your name on your bags or attach a label on them to be able to identify them among other similar bags in the crowd in the airport hall.
