Weekly Travel Tips – Obvious Stuff We Sometimes Overlook

Mina is here again, and she’s been sharing her travel tips with us for the last few weeks. Here are some useful tips we seem to overlook!

4. Wear comfortable shoes – Perhaps this seems obvious – and it should be obvious, but sometimes shoes that may have been comfortable at home are not comfortable for traveling. I recommend wearing the shoes for long walks before taking them with you to see if they can handle the wear they will undoubtedly get if you like to get as much sight-seeing as possible packed into one day.

5. Research– Again, this may seem like an obvious one – but skimming through a travel book doesn’t count! The trip will be a lot more smooth of you can map out a specific itinerary in advance. Alex likes to figure out all the activities we want to do and alot an amount of time to each (including travel time to and from) so that we can determine if we can fit everything in. It sucks being stressed on vacation. This can happen if you plan too many things to do. Having said that, it also sucks being bored on vacation. Putting a bit of extra work in before leaving to figure out what you want to accomplish on your trip will make it a lot more enjoyable.

I’m done with my tips and I hope they help you on your next journey! I share insight from my previous travel experiences on sending postcards (http://sendingpostcards.wordpress.com) and Alex and I are documenting our upcoming around-the-world adventures on… two of us sending postcards (http://sending-postcards.blogspot.com) – hope you stop by and follow along!
