Bits of advice when travelling

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Everyone can afford travelling nowadays. Many airlines have promotions and seat sales from time to time. It can get as cheap as a few dimes on some rare occasions. I guess many people have been bitten by the travel bug. It's a good thing because it stimulates the economy.

I love to travel, too. In fact, I decide my domestic and international travel schedule as early as possible to save for the expenses will be incurred during these trips. I'd love to travel with style, too, you know.

One thing I have learned about my recent experiences is that it is better to travel light. Airports are such big places to get lost in and if one has so many luggages, it's hard to maneuver his/her way out.

It is also very important to invest in good quality luggage sets. I especially like my trolley to have at least four wheels so I can just twist and turn it wherever I want it to regardless of its weight. Even a plus if your luggage sets are as stylish as Tumi Luggage and Briggs and Riley Luggage. Most people have black suitcases so why not opt for more colorful or decorated ones, they're much easier to spot on the conveyor belt.

If traveling internationally, it is also important to keep the necessary documentations handy like passport or visa, tourist permit, among others to avoid being arrested or questioned by immigration police. Cash and credit cards should be readily available to, and as much as possible, convert to the country's local currency before departure or to US dollars which is standard exchange currency.

Importantly, a traveler should have presence of mind during the whole journey so he/she can keep watch on his/her belongings and not fall prey to robbers/tricksters and to reach the destination and return home safely.
