We can’t all be expert travellers, but we can certainly try. In this article we will look at some travel tips that we know are from the top shelf, the stuff that not everybody knows about. Take them on board and you are all but guaranteed to get even more out of your travel then you have before. This is the good stuff, the info that people simply don’t even consider when they travel around the globe.
Get up earlier than anyone else
It may sound like the last thing you want to do when you’re travelling, but if you get up earlier than anyone else this means that you are going to be able to see all of the best sights and attractions before anyone else. If you are looking forward to seeing a particular attraction for example, then getting up earlier means that you will see it well before anyone else even gets a chance to.
We’re not being antisocial here, but it stops people from getting in your way. And also dont forget that some of the most beautiful sights in the world look ten times better in the early morning light.
Put extra cash somewhere special
Cash is really important when you are travelling, and if you are able to stash some cash in secret places it means that you will be able to access it quickly. This means in your socks or even in your underwear. Sounds a little weird, we know. But if you can stash the cash somewhere other than your wallet, you won’t be stuck if you lose the wallet. Its as simple as that really. Don’t forget to store cash in more than one place and you will never be out of cash when you need it the most.
Take photos, but enjoy the view
You have to take a lot of photos. You may never visit these place or see these amazing people ever again, and having a bunch of photos of memories is absolutely paramount. But the one thing that people forget to do when taking photos is to not take photos, or at least stop taking them for long enough that they actually look at the subject of the photo.
If you are enjoying a great view and take a few photos of it, don’t forget to put the camera down at some point and look at the view for a while, soak it in. This is the biggest mistake people make with their photos. With everyone being so snap happy with their phones and so on, they forget to take in the marvellous experience they are part of. So get the mix right, take a photo, then enjoy the view.
These three tips are absolutely top notch material. Many people, for example, forget about the fact that they can wake up earlier than everyone, else, take those special photos of an amazing sight, and then enjoy the rest either day.
Just don’t forget to actually look at the view while you’re there.
