Want to make the most of your travel time? Here are 5 of our top travel tips for a better holiday.
Put down your camera – Don’t depend on your camera to create all your memories
I am not suggesting to cut all photos & videos, but at times put down your electronics and take in the moments. Stop, look, listen, smell and feel the energy around you. Take it all in and create memories in your mind and soul.
Things happen. Weather happens. Businesses close. Don’t take it personally and move on. The faster you accept it and move on the better the possibilities for a great new adventure. Have a backup plan for bad weather or business closings. Don’t stress a wrong turn or getting lost sometimes those little mishaps create the most surprising experiences.
Keep times open don’t over schedule
Loosen up your time schedule. Life is already a blur of rushing from one place to another. Allow time to adjust between activities. Give yourself time to process & reflect upon each activity before you move on to the next itinerary item.
Try something you have never tried before. Maybe a cooking class, bungee jumping, learning the local language or taste a new type of food. I like to attempt to talk to at least one local person each day. It is an excellent way to learn about the people, customs and the hidden gems in the area.
Breathe in, breathe out, take in yourself and just be.
Of course with all of these suggestions your safety should always be the first priority.
