We love to travel. We have put many hours in the seats of airplanes, automobiles, and boats exploring this beautiful planet! We have seen some of the most beautiful places in the world. Every place we have visited has had one thing in common: amazing people who want to share their culture and their town!
Traveling is good for your health! But, it can also be dangerous, spendy, and stressful. Here are a few tips to make it more enjoyable.
Why ask the locals for advice?
The locals know about all the hot spots. We have found that you can find out so much information by asking the people who work at the hotel. They are so informative. All you have to do is ask!
They know where the best food is. They know which tourist attractions are worth wasting your money on. Go where the locals go. Ask what a local typically does on a Saturday night around town. They may not tell you where their favorite fishing hole is but they are probably willing to share their favorite “watering” hole!
Why should you check the reviews?
There are so many review websites out their today. Yelp is my favorite! Before you waste your hard earned money, check what others have to say. After all, they have already wasted or not wasted their money there.
Check the town websites or local news for events. To save money, use websites that offer discounts, such as Groupon.
Why should you pay attention to your surroundings?
Especially in an unfamiliar area, pay attention to your surroundings. If the vibe seems sketchy and you feel uncomfortable, get out! If you pull up to a restaurant and no one is in the parking lot during a peak time, run away!
Traveling can be such a fun, educational, and inspiring experience! Hopefully, these travel tips will inspire you to take the path less traveled, but carefully!
