A Travel Enthusiast? 10 Things you Must Know Before Kickstarting the Adventure of Your Lifetime

Doesn’t matter if you are travelling for the first time or the thirtieth; you will always feel a bit of hope, a bit of excitement and even a bit of fear bubbling inside you.

While travelling you can always expect the unexpected in the form of joy, happiness and those indelible memories which lasts for a lifetime within you.

So, if perhaps you have just started travelling or maybe you already are a seasoned traveller, we have got a few tips for you which every travel enthusiast must know before kickstarting an adventure in their lives. Here we go!

1. Take it Slow

Traveller or not; this is something everyone should consider in their lives. There is no denying the fact that it is just too tempting to experience everything at once. However, travel is more about experiencing each moment to the fullest.

It is as if travel is more about quality; and the slower and calmer you become from the inside, the more amazing your travel experience would be from the outside. So, wherever you are, just take a deep breath and soak up everything around you and take it a bit slow.

By doing this, you will have a completely different perspective on life. And perhaps that’s what travelling is all about in the end.

2. It’s Not Necessary to Always Live by Your Guidebook

It is not necessary to always live by the rules. Sometimes breaking bad can be fun as well. So, why not just tread the offbeat paths and explore some low key tourist attractions while you still have the chance to do so.

How you do it? Let's say you are in some other Indian city; start by talking to the locals about different places in India, get to know their culture. In the end, you will be loaded with lots of stories to boast about and share with your pals.

3. Learn to Channelise Your Energies and go with the Flow

You need to understand that there will always be some hiccup or another in your journey. You just need to come to terms with it and make peace with yourself.

Neither travel nor life can always go as per your plans. So, be a little flexible. Learn to let go. Let your adventure unravel itself before you.

4. Always Pack Light

This is one of the foremost things any traveller should be deeply aware of - there is absolutely no need to travel with all those heavy suitcases, and bulging bags.

Rather, the most fun lies in travelling light and enjoying it. By doing this, you will have less to carry which means fewer things will mess up. It will save a great chunk of your time as well.

5. Be Travel Insured

Always make sure that you have been insured before you make that dream journey of yours. Because you never know; sudden unforeseen events can come out of the blue and hit you hard. It can be anything from losing your luggage to even a minor or a major accident.

So, to make sure that you are safe while travelling, you need to insure yourself.

6. Always Have a Phone by Your Side

While you are in some different country or even some other city within your country, it is always great to carry your smartphone with you at all times.

It can be a lifesaver in times of crisis. Thus, always keep it charged, and make sure that data is working properly on your phone 24/7.

7. Always Have Some Extra Cash With You

Doesn’t matter if you are travelling someplace cheap or expensive, there is no harm in carrying some extra cash with you.

Money management is one skill that can really help you in both life and your travel adventures.

In terms of travel, there can be moments when you suddenly want to eat in that restaurant or maybe buy that thing or do something else.

In moments like these, that extra wad of cash stored within your wallet or bag could prove to be really helpful.

8. No Harm in Being a Bit Adventurous

The only way to grow is to break your own conventions and step out of your comfort zone. And adventure is one thing which can promise you that.

So, give a try to bungee jumping, go and skydive; see what it feels like, what kind of emotional torrent all these things open within you.

Everyone has different tastes; you just have to find something that suits you best. In the end, you would be nothing but glad that you did it.

9. Get Over Your Shyness

There is no reason to be shy in a foreign place. We know it definitely takes some courage to open up but in the end, it would be worth it. So, try and talk to strangers, know what they like, what they don’t and ask a casual question or two. Just don’t try and offend them. This is how you might just end up making friendships of a lifetime.

10. Don’t Get Scared

Obviously, taking a leap of faith into the unknown is always a bit scary. But here, you need to remember that at some point, everybody does it, they have to do it; there is no turning back.

Everyone has to get out of their comfort zone and just go with it. There is no need to belittle yourself. Granted that you may make mistakes, and might also embarrass yourself at some point while travelling and exploring around.

But that is how you will make memories and return to your homeland somewhat more intelligent, more learned and more capable.

So, these were a few heartfelt tips any travel enthusiast should keep in mind before embarking on an adventure. Hope you guys would have liked it.
