Traveling is a way of living and it is a whole new lifestyle that you are offered as a choice in your lives. So to make it a major part of your life requires you to adapt to the changes that you will be facing almost everyday or maybe very frequently. I have personally become a lot stronger after I learnt the ‘travel way of living. My life has not just become a little tiring and tough, but on the brighter side, I have actually become a lot more outspoken and now I have a completely different personality altogether. Now I travel abroad with ease, pack my own stuff without thinking much and taking help and I also choose my destinations wisely. If you want to become someone like me who has become an expert after constant years of traveling, let me tell you it is not really a tough thing to do. You can just follow some of these practical tips that I as a traveler figured out are very much useful. So here we go!
- Remember the things that you shouldn’t leave your home without.
Now this one is a great thing to remember and this itself solves half of the issues that you might have while traveling. Now the trick here is, you have to be smart enough to know what are the things you will need while you are traveling. Then segregate them into 2 categories where the first one is the list of things that you should surely have in your backpacks and the second list holds the names of the items that can be bought anywhere. You obviously don’t need to carry things that you can buy outside. But there are some things like your travel documents, some prescribed drugs and also some of the sheets or clothes or some skincare products that you are OCD about. Carry your chargers and gadgets for sure as you might have to buy them at greater prices if you forget them at your homes. Know what to carry and what to buy for a shorter time. Know your essentials and that is how you can pack your bags smartly.
- Experiment with the food and make sure to know your limits.
This is one point you need to get straight into your heads. ‘ONLY YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO AND NOBODY IS GOING TO REMIND YOU OF IT.’ Now this caution is pretty much a shout out and you need to remember your limits. You should be well versed with your food habits by now and you don’t need your mama to tell you that you are allergic to shrimps or broccoli or salmons or anything. Know that you are out in the world alone or maybe almost alone and the world doesn’t know what you can eat and what not. So remember your necessities and your health before you try something new in the new places. Food in any place is a ‘must try’ and you should abide by the rules with an exception of your allergies and health. Ask for the famous or the signature dishes of the new places from the locals there and then try them to know more about the various traditions and culinary etiquettes. Travel is fun and energizing only when food is your partner.
- Just because you are traveling alone doesn’t mean you are actually alone.
Yes, you are definitely not alone. It’s not like you are the only person in this entire world walking alone through the deserts and then crossing rivers and then landing on the islands, making bonfires and frying some of the self-caught fishes. The entire imagination sounds funny and illogical. So you actually have a whole lot of people who are also traveling alone and that means you are a part of an entire mass that is almost traveling alone. But when you happen to bump into someone, or accidentally meet someone, you end up smiling and then comes a ‘hi’ or a ‘hello’ and then you eventually become friends. That is how you make friends and that is how you make friends and that is how you know the rest of the world that is traveling with you. You are definitely not alone. Travel around the world with confidence and you will definitely find a lot more people like you out there who are not afraid of traveling alone because no one is actually alone.
