Travel tips that will change the way you travel forever
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the things I have learned over the years travelling. Wanting to compile a useful list of tips and tricks is one thing, but limiting it to just 50 is another! That’s right… I didn’t struggle to think of 50 of the best travel tips, I struggled to know which ones to include! There’s so much I want to share with you – starting with:
1. KEEP A CHANGE OF CLOTHES AND TOILETRIES IN YOUR CARRY-ON.
You never know when your luggage may be lost or delayed, and the first thing you want to do in a new city is most probably not go on a mission to buy underwear.
2. LEARN THE QUICKEST WAYS TO GET OVER JET LAG
Drinking plenty over water, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, and fresh air are the best ways to avoid jet lag or at least shake it quickly. Better yet, a shower is as good as liquid sleep… just be sure to head outside right afterwards, as the fresh air will wake you up for the day.
3. WASH YOUR CLOTHES IN THE SINK
One you learn how to wash your clothes in the sink like a pro, you’ll never use a laundromat again.
4. LEARN HOW TO PACK LIKE A PRO
The never ending packing debate has resulted in a few claims to fame, but a combination of both rolling (delicate, wrinkle-prone items) and folding (jeans, etc.) results in a pro packing approach. Better yet, pack clothes that don’t wrinkle. Better better yet, never buy clothes that require ironing!
