- Book at least 2 months before a trip: according to analysis by flight-booking experts, flight tickets are at their cheapest around 54 days before takeoff. You do the math.
- Don’t work when you travel: if you’re out to travel, then just travel. Don’t mix it up. What’s the point any other way?
- Follow the 80/20 rule: carry 20% of your necessities that should cover 80% of possible travel scenarios.
- Unplug: no mobiles, no internet, no FB, no Instagram, no mails. Pure travel.
- Travel alone: make new friends, new experiences, new stories. Expand your world with each new place you go to.
- Brief yourself on cultural differences: you know where you’re going. Find out unique differences so that you’re not lost in the system of the place.
- Ask for the window seat: this is self-explanatory.
- Talk to locals: find out where they go, what they do in their city.
- Pick a dream destination, then find a low-cost alternative: to travel often, you’d need to do this. Not only does it lower the cost of travel, but you might end up going to a place no one’s been to before.
- Don’t let anything daunt you: a bad day or a bad plan shouldn’t pull you down. Make the best of the place you’re visiting.
