Traveling is indeed fun and relaxing. You have packed your beard maintenance and the rest of the kit, sunblock and other essentials. You have your clothes ready and pocket money. For sure, you are all excited and thrilled. But before you leave, make sure that you know the do’s and don’ts and traveling.
Knowing this stuff can actually make or break your trip. So how you can make your trip a success? You better keep reading.
Let us get started with the things you should not do.
Number 1. Never bring large sum of money or even exchange it in dubious places or with people you meet on the street.
Number 2. Do not look like as if you are a tourist. Instead, do your best to blend in with the rest. This way, no one is going to take advantage of you.
Number 3. It is not a safe practice to carry a bag that is loosely slung over your shoulder.
Keep your bag on your opposite side from the road. This is a good practice as it forestalls the would-be thieves from snatching it away.
Number 4. It is smart not to carry a backpack that looks more like luggage and another thing, avoid visiting dangerous locations or even walk in isolated, dimly or unfamiliar areas.
Number 5. Regardless of how “safe” the place is promoted with, never ever leave your valuables in public places.
Now that you have idea on the things that you should not be doing when on a trip, we now focus on what you should be doing.
Number 1. Be mindful of your surroundings and always watch out for suspicious vehicles or people.
Number 2. Consider using cash substitutes like traveler’s checks or even credit cards. Only carry the money you need for immediate use.
Number 3. Make it a point that you keep valuables that you have no plans of taking in the trip in a safe place. Perhaps, if the hotel you are staying at has a safety deposit box service, opt for using it.
