After more than ten years traveling around the world, I definitely learned my fair share of lessons. Like the time I got on a train because I failed my guard or the time Scott and I were at Bozeman Airport just to find that we no longer rent a car.
Some of these traffic accidents can be avoided and some are just part of travel. You cannot simply plan everything. However, keeping in mind some important things will make your trips much easier.
We’ve collected the best travel tips and tricks to help you save money, avoid mistakes, and travel like a pro!
We always plan to delay and try not to bother when things inevitably go wrong. Patience is very important when traveling!
Make a List
About a week or so before every trip, I make a mental list of items I don’t want to forget – which I will forget if I don’t write them. I’ve learned that when I think of something, I need to write it down.
Learn Common Phrases of the Local Language
The words “please”, “thank you” and “I’m sorry” in the local language go a long way. I’d also like to learn the word beer, but that’s just me.
Don’t Forget an Extra Camera Battery (or Two)
Have you ever reached this epic sunset photo spot and realized that the camera battery is dead and you have no backup? I try to bring at least three camera batteries on all of our trips so we don’t miss that perfect shot.
Always Bring a Sarong
Gowns can be used as cover when they are cold, a towel, a curtain or a piece of clothing that can be worn in several different ways. Solid colors are great, but if you want something special, I love this snail.
