Hello Everyone,Mark Here.
This is our first ever post on this blog and I’m going to share some tips about some things that you should keep in mind before travelling.I Wanted to write this post because most people seem they don’t do basic homework before travelling abroad.
Passport and Visa are not only two things that you need while travelling abroad,If you are visiting countries where yellow fever is prevalant you might need to carry medical certificates in handy.Make sure to know what things you need to carry and what not.This information can be obtained by looking up the VISA Section of the wikipedia section.
Eg : If you are a US Citizen,Then Search “Visa Requirements for US Citizens” and you’ll see in the notes section what certificates to carry while travelling.
If you want to travel on a budget then book tickets at least before 20 days – 1 month because there will be a difference in ticket rate that was booked 20 days – 1 month ago and tickets that are booked at last moment.
If you keep searching for tickets all the time,then ticket rates might go higher clear your browsing history and cache and use other browser if possible and book the tickets.
3.Hotels – Hostels
If you are a solo backpacker then Hostels are the best ways to minimise your budget,Hostels costs about 10$/day and are much cheaper.
Make sure to check the local websites before booking directly
This is the most important thing if you are travelling to a country where people doesn’t speak your language,Learn few words like numbers of currencies and basic interaction words.
Like If you are travelling to India then you might want to learn the names of the currency notes such as (Dus for 10) (Bees for 20) (Pachas for 50)
This way you seem like you are from within the country and also will stop from getting scammed
