Keep Your Accommodation Address with You
This might sound ridiculous but it is important nonetheless. We tend to underestimate ourselves and assume we have it all in our heads. It is best to have it with you at all times because when you need a specific direction back, you can refer to it easily. It is best to keep it on paper as well because you will never know when the handy-dandy technology will fail you when you need it the most.
Be it whether you are traveling domestic or international, it is important to gear yourself up with travel insurance. This is pretty much self-explanatory because you will never expect what could happen when you are abroad. Even if you are traveling domestically, should things go out of your control such as accidents or sickness, you will have the leverage of insurance coverage.
Be Flexible with Your Travel Plans
Planning is a good way to go traveling, be it domestically or internationally, but don’t disregard the fact that things can and most likely would not go as planned. This could either be due to suddenly the activity you want to do being unavailable or if more logistical issues force you to think of other ways to do things. Keep in mind that planning is a good base, but when you are traveling and there are a lot of external factors involved, it will be a different kind of adventure.
