    ...first time flying internationally and my layover is 1:40 and on the way back 1:20 now I'm scared haha! But otherwise it was a 4 hour layover(on a 26 hour travel time so than it would have been 30) or 200,- more expensive. So I guess I just hope that I can make it:p

    also, so you would NOT GO to a wonderful restaurant say run by a family, or a beautiful air b n b with local people....because they don't have wifi? You can't go for a few hours? Like you would pass up on a wonderful REAL experience.....because they did not have wifi? You can't experience something without sharing or being connected? This is insanity and not travel.

    laundry in the sink. Hello? you stay at cheap places, and take some special soap to clean in the sink. Also take clothing that can dry overnight or in 24 hours. There is underwear that you can purchase that dries overnight....rinse in the sink, hang somewhere and voila, fresh undies every morning. But this small packets of laundry soap are wonderful....dry soap. buy them. Also why waste an afternoon at a laundramat?

    I know this is an older post, and someone probably already said this, but learning at a minimum some key phrases and basic words in the local language. When I started studying Spanish I decided to take a trip to Spain for my vacation, and I can't tell you how many laughs I got out of watching people struggle because they were so dead set on not not speaking Spanish when any travel guide will tell you it isn't widespread.

    This is an amazing review! If i will add a few things-an exception to carry too much cash might be places like Japan-where hard currency is the norm-but i do agree on setting a daily limit. Also, Carrying a Power Bank, preferably a light one between 6000 or higher Mah in case your phone's battery dies, or just buy a phone with good battery life..and finally learning a few phrases or carrying a translator like google translate always helps..oh and registering your trip with your countries nearest embassy at your destination. Overall best video - and well presented :D

    I learned as a rookie to always plan my sleeping. Some countries people stay up late and you have to adjust yourself to going to bed and getting up later or you'd either miss the nightlife or just be tired and groggy during your adventures, and same if you are in a place where people get up earlier, and you have to plan sleep time when you've scheduled different types of traveling or when the airplane has cool movies or whenever and you just have to make sure you remember to take time to sleep or you'll become a zombie and not fully experience your trip

    I have to take medications throughout the day and night, and in the US where I live, to go somewhere and take medication, I have to take the pharmacy bottle with me for verification. Basically if I need to take medication while out, I have to take the bottle with me, so on the off chance the police or security question it, I don't have a pocket of controlled substances without reason. Is this what you need to do when traveling? If I go to another country, do I need to carry the pharmacy bottle to carry a pill I'll need?

    On destination photos. I'm going to be obtuse. Because I actually have registered a domain name that's the name of the city I'm thinking of. I had a postcard that showed clear green water flowing in this city. Turned out it was muddy brown, and in spots kind of yucky.

    Pro tip: find a credit union or online bank before you travel that offers ATM refunds. There's one that offers $10 a day atm reimbursement. The cost for using an Australian atm to pull from an American acct was $12. This also allows you to split up your money.

    drinking water out of the tap. is not common in every country. one i knew before travelling. how ever someone in my group thought that did not count for washing feggie's for food. so we all got sick. next one.. if your on your trip. and do have the thin one running.. and have no meds for it or no access. check for food that can do the trick. like potato's. banana's

    I would actually REALLY recommend trying to go on a trip without any wifi/data. I went to China and Iran without a VPN which cut me off from basically all social media etc. because of their blocks and I found myself being able to enjoy the trips so much more. No facebook, instagram, snapchat, whatever for an extended time really makes a big change if you like me are used to being surrounded by that all the time. Bring a good book, make sure you have enough money on your bank account or (like me) ask someone back home to keep an eye on it and cut yourself off from the world a bit. Trust me it'll be worth it!

    I just came back from traveling for 4 months.. in the beginning i bought myself a sim card, I made sure wifi where i was staying was good. but later on going from a country to country it was just too much to always invest into a sim card and wifi started getting worse - for instance, it would only be available in common areas in hostels and it would take ages to open a page. and later wherever i went i only took my phone to take pictures with. So listen.. you can do without wifi and data for a bit! Stop looking at your phone the whole time and look around, talk to the locals, ask what their favorite restaurant it, and for direction if you are not sure. you are going to have such a better time!

    People who say you don't need data or wifi, you may come in a situation where you need it like an important situation like making a phone call for something important there a lot of things you'd need it for, I'm not saying you have to use it all the time or you have to have it in just saying you may want to get it just in case because you never know
