We all love travelling, I mean who doesn’t? The famous Chinese proverb, “Don’t listen to what they say, go see”, speaks for itself. But as much as travelling is such a ‘fancy’ and enjoyable thing to do, it definitely has some pros and cons.
Have a bag which fits all your belongings. If possible, don’t have more than one bag, this reduces chances of theft because it will be easier to keep track of it. When travelling by bus for instance, having less luggage will be advantageous because you can place your bag near you. This will save you the hustle of turning or standing every time to keep watch of your luggage.
Most of being aware is taking on habit-forming-behaviours like checking behind you after you get up from your seat, looping the straps of your bag and also ensuring that your bag is not out of your sight.
Keep your most valuable items handy, do not pack them. In the first place, you should not even carry any valuables with you if it’s not that necessary. Don’t carry anything you would be despondent to lose. Items such as cash, passports and cameras deserve to be hidden in a money belt. This of course will only be effective when one is awake throughout the whole journey, this ensures full assurance of your items.
This is exactly what you need! You never know what might happen during your trip, and you definitely don’t want to ruin your plans. A travelling insurance covers a lot for you. When you don’t have cash with you instantly, this is where insurance comes in handy.
Just have an idea of what insurance exactly entails. Don’t completely rely on it, at least have some little cash with you because there is always a maximum pay out limit for certain items, and items over a certain limit have to be accompanied by an original receipt.
Instead of going through all that stress, why don’t you just keep your travel insurance somewhere you can’t forget to carry? As simple as that.
Keeping in mind that you can’t call 911 everywhere, it’s always advisable to have some local emergency hotlines on your phone. It does not necessarily mean that you only need to have your family contacts, research the nearest consulates and save their numbers. You never know when you might need them.
Accidents do happen, and they always happen when we least expect them. Do you know that accidents can be prevented though right? So it’s better to prevent them by doing this simple act of saving emergency numbers.
This even makes it easy for your family members to be reached and made aware when something is not right and they had been suspecting all along, by being informed they will be at ease because they will know that at least you got assistance.
The last thing you want to think of when trying to get ‘in a holiday mood’ is getting hurt or killed. Unfortunately, it does happen. What I’m trying to say is, never let your guard down when travelling. As I said earlier, you never know what might happen at what time and what place.
First things first ,if you are perfectly aware that you always get sick when travelling, then you obviously need to have something which prevents or rather ensures that you don’t get sick at all. It does not necessarily have to be pills.
When you set your mind that you’re going on a trip, let nothing hold you back. I mean, a little holiday has never done anyone wrong, and especially if you work so hard and you work non-stop from Monday to Monday, then you definitely need a holiday. At the end of the day, you’ll see that it was worth it and there’s nothing more pleasing than making your happiness a number one priority.
Above all, never spend like there will never be a tomorrow. Besides, it’s not like the trip will last forever.
With all that said, I’ll best conclude with, TRAVEL…because it’s the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
