    My Tips
    1. Download on Google maps wherever your going so you can use maps offline
    2. Choose hostels worth breakfast and eat as much as you can. Maybe steal some fruit it a muffin for snack later

    How do you balance not hyping things up to much vs. convincing yourself that a place won’t be great and end up not wanting to go anymore.

    This was not... good. It was too long and included some really, really bad advice. Unless you're an alcoholic who can't get through a night without liquor, buying cheap booze and drinking in your room so you'll be drunk before you go out at night is a terrible suggestion that could get you killed.

    TIP and Service Charge are NOT the same! Service Charge is equally divided to team members and TIP is when you know and feel that the person is providing you an exceptional above and beyond service. Yes, it is still great to give the person a TIP -be kind enough to give something extra to the person.

    Know your languages! I usually translate for the people I meet while traveling. So I’m the translator of the group. This means that usually I’m the one who will pick up words and sentences from the local languages fastest. Not only will the locals really appreciate this and become even more willing to help etc, but also it allows you to get a way better experience with the local culture and so forth..
    Language skills are way to important!!!

    TIP ALERT! I have a travel bank card that you load up before you go, you use it exactly like a debit card, and you have a secure online account to go with it that you can use to transfer more money onto the card, or lock it remotely if you need to. I love it, because it means I don't have to travel with all my normal cards, and if you lose it or it's stolen, it's super easy to shut it down, and, since it's prepaid, if it DOES get hacked into, it's near impossible for that person to access any more money than what you've loaded onto the card. ALSO, it's fantastic if you're traveling through multiple countries, as no matter what currency you want to buy something in, it will automatically convert the currency on your card into the currency of that place. And you can get multiple cards linked to the same account, so that if you lose one, you have another. And they each have a unique PIN just like a credit card... Only safer.

    Not sure if you made this but can you make a video about how you carry your loose and small change/bills? Example 500 dollars in small change is difficult to manage! I'm scared of theft and also sometimes having a huge wad of small change makes it easy to be spotted + sometimes hard to manage

    • Sparklemotion101

      You need a travel wallet that you can wear under your clothes (the kind that's attached to a belt around your waist). Keep most of your cash there, and transfer small amounts to a "normal wallet" *in private* as needed (when you're going to spend money, go to a bathroom and access your travel wallet where nobody can see, then move some bills to the "normal wallet" in your handbag).
      This way, nobody will know you've got more money than you have in the wallet you pull out when paying for small items.
      As a student, I traveled alone for a while with some cash; I kept my money in a wallet that tucked into my trousers (I sleep face-down, and on overnight trains and shared hostels, nobody could get to my wallet even if they knew about it). I also kept my passport in my travel wallet at night while I slept, so nobody could take it; your passport is valuable and you don't want to lose it by mistake or to a thief.

    Some parts of the world may not have WIFI. YOU DO NOT NEED WIFI. Thats a rookie mistake. Plan way ahead of time. Survival common sense says get grid coordinance map for destination of arrival. Its important in case you get lost. A survival plan is essential. Also you may want to get a sim card for your phone in that country. Collect emergency numbers.

    Rookie mistakes for hotel types like me (I love hostels, I do, but sometimes I am such a snob lol): leaving your passport in the hotel room safe. I’ve been there and done that. Whoops. Not just the passport either - I carry two purses when I travel, one for my spare credit card and extra cash etc and that goes in the safe too. Don’t just put valuables in there - put in one thing you absolutely will not forget... one shoe, your toothpaste (get up in the morning, go to brush teeth before packing and leaving but the toothpaste is with your passport!), your sunglasses - anything so that when you’re ready to leave and bag is packed you are reminded that whoops can’t go, something is missing!

  • Ken Lee
    Ken Lee 7 месяцев назад +1

    Nah. I prefer private transportation. It's no fun dragging your luggage, even if it's just 1 piece, to/from the train station and then for 30 minutes along cobbled streets to the hotel. Just forego a little bit of your daily life (e.g. 2-3 less coffees from st*rbucks a week) to save up for your trips.

      Sparklemotion101 9 дней назад

      If you're bringing clothes home that you never wore on the trip, you're packing way too much. I pack very little and plan to wear every piece multiple times, especially underwear and socks: invest in "travel" undies that dry *fast* so you can wash them in the sink at night and they'll be dry by morning. I never check bags, so everything I bring has to fit in a carry-on (rolling suitcase) plus a small backpack, even when traveling for a month or longer.

    About not carrying much Money on you. i know it would be bad if you drop it och get your bag stolen or whatever u do to loose it. but if You wana save Money then take out much everytime you take out Money. That way you save Money from a number of transaction fees. so if you go to Thailand for example, Always take out a minimum of 10 000bht that will save you lots of Money in the long run.

    Rookie Mistake not to make: Not getting a VPN in China. If you want to use important things like Google Maps or Google Translate in China you're gonna need a VPN (virtual private network) to do so. I've heard of far too many travellers finding themselves lost in China because they can't access maps or translate apps on their phone that could help with asking directions.
    Another good tip (if you're travelling to somewhere you don't speak the language) is to have the name of your hotel/accommodation written down somewhere. This is especially important in places like China in which the writing system is different to English. This way if you're lost you can show people, or a taxi driver and they can help you get where you gotta go.

    Here's the tips:

    - Packing too much
    - Not packing the right shoes
    - Not planning out laundry days
    - Forgetting power cords and/or portable batteries
    - Over-scheduling
    - Not getting a watch
    - Not having a data plan (for your phone)
    - Not knowing your wifi plan
    - Book places with wifi (eat, stay, etc.)
    - Spending too much money drinking and partying
    - Not understanding tipping etiquette
    - Short connection times
    - Thinking you'll save money at a cheaper airport without thinking properly about how to get to your hotel
    - Not checking train, bus, or metro timing
    - Not comparing public transportation with private
    - Soz, gtg. Hope I helped!

    While you did technically touched on this I wanted to be more specific. Don't go with the people who solicit cab rides at the airport. I once had to pay 104 euros for a 20 minute cab ride from the airport to my hotel.
    I would also recommend being sure to buy power adaptors before leaving, and not just buy them at the airport when you land. I did this twice, and each time I didn't realize I forgot to pick one up until after I was already out of the airport.
    Put the phone down for two bloody minutes. What's wrong with sitting down to eat and enjoy the food for 45 minutes without needing your phone? You also really don't need them for directions either. We have this fascinating new invention called a map.
