Four Habits That Will Make you a Better TravelerBy Karen D
Ideally, being on time would be enough. But we all know that planning to be on time means we’ll end up being late, but if we plan to be early…
Being early will avoid the anxiety of missing your flight or scheduled ticket for a tourist attraction, plus if you are traveling in a group, you don’t want to be the person making everyone else late.
And obviously, being late will leave you with less time to enjoy your day, so take this into consideration next time you hit snooze on the alarm for the third time.
Learn basic vocabulary
Memorizing a few basic words might save your life when you need to ask for help and will definitely help you connect with the local people. Besides, it is a great way to impress your friends when you come back home!
This is the most important habit of all and will help you so much along the way. People would most definitely rather help out a polite tourist than an unpleasant one. And if you want tips on the coolest spots in town, guess who a local would want to tell their favorite places to?
Keep pictures of all your documents
Your parents probably taught you to bring copies of your documents in case you lost them on your trip, right? But this is the 21st century and we have the cloud! Make sure to update all document pictures before your trip and if anything unfortunate happens, you will have all document copies available anywhere as long as you can find an internet connection.
