Are you comfortable with your level of knowledge when it comes it travel? Have you developed a plan for your travel? And if you, would you like to make it better? If you were involved in an emergency situation during your travels, could you handle yourself? These are just some of the questions you might be able to answer better after reviewing the following travel advice.
If you have a child, keep a color photo of him or her in your wallet in case they get lost. Losing a child is traumatic for any parent. It can, however, still happen. When you have a photo of the child with you, it can make a big difference in finding them fast if they become lost.
It is often wise to choose an aisle seat. While a window seat will give you a nice view, it can also lead to some problems. It’s trickier to get up and use the bathroom or get to your baggage when you’re sitting in a window seat. Aisle seats are also more comfortable.
Get educated about foreign food ingredients to prevent unintentional exposure to allergens. If you are allergic to certain foods, you should know what the name of the food is in the native language. By doing this, you can tell any wait staff or food handlers that you must avoid these certain foods or, even in a worst case scenario, you need to be able to tell medical professionals what is wrong.
When traveling abroad, be on the lookout for criminals who may be posing as law or government officials. Don’t give anyone your original passport, because this could set you up for theft. If you are asked to travel to any offices, insist on walking. Never, under any circumstances, get in a car with an unknown local.
Pick the proper camera for your trip. If you’re going backpacking, a camera with a rechargeable battery might not be the best idea. Try to find a digital camera you can turn on and focus quickly. You don’t want to miss anything memorable.
If you worry about security, pack things like a doorstop to secure your door or other small things to ensure your safety. They are small, easy to pack and they keep doors from opening.
Throw a few clothespins into your suitcase. You would be amazed at how useful these will turn out to be.
