Travelling Guidelines & Etiquette

I know you are probably thinking everything has etiquette these days... Sincerely, i feel that way sometimes, but truth be told, we need some guidelines sometimes. Ok, so i took the liberty of putting the list together for you my lovely readers so you won't have to do the research or wonder what to know.

-The first thing is to pick a place you want to visit. If you don't know already or confused about where to visit, then do some research on, travel channel, or the world wide web in general.

-After picking a place then decide on what is there to do in that city

-Make your accomodation arrangement at least for 1 night (you may decide to explore other cheaper avenues after you get there)

-Have a knowledge of the exchange rate before you go.

-Have a knowledge of language barrier if any and how to tackle that

-Read up on the culture of the people. Some do's and don'ts of the culture

-It is always nice to at least learn the basic greetings of a place you are visiting. People love it when you make effort to speak their language. You don't have to get it right, but try.

-If the hotel or villa you are staying does not have a safe, always carry your passport with you.

-Be willing to try the local food and learn and participate in their culture unless it is something that violates your belief.

-Always travel with a first aid kit (speaking from experience)

-Contact your embassy in the country you are visiting to let them know you are there in case of an emergency.

-Leave contact information of where you are going with someone in your country of origin.

-Never engage in a fight with the locals because more often than none, they will always win as you are the outsider.
