Your next great adventure is just around the corner, but before you begin your trip, remember arrange everything the right way and prepare as you would the best travel expert. These are the top ten tips:


Depending where you go to travel, the rules related to the time you can stay in the country as a tourist can vary greatly. Make sure you know the rules and have the appropriate visa (if necessary). Also check that your passport is valid until at least six months after your return date, as many countries require this. And finally, make sure you know what shots you need to travel safely, a quick search on Google and visit your doctor will give you the information (and vaccines!) You need. And remember: If you’re traveling to an exotic country-for a safari, for example, plan your vaccination to be at least a few months before the trip, some vaccines must be administered several times before traveling.


I think we’ve all been in that situation. You know, when the phone battery is at four hundred during a conversation that could change your life, and start typing faster and faster to say everything you wanted to say before the phone is switched off completely. Not a pleasant feeling and your only savior in this situation is the charger. Be sure to always carry a charger and an adapter so you can charge all your electronic devices anywhere in the world you are.


If you’re traveling with an iOS or Android device, you’ll never worry about missing again. This is because Google Maps allows users of Android and iOS keep the maps offline to access them without connecting to the Internet (say goodbye to costly roaming charges). You can save such large areas like the Paris metro maps and up to 6 once. If you know what cities you visit during your trip, do yourself a favor and download the maps before leaving.

Travel tips


And while we’re still on the phone theme … if you’re staying in the same country for a longer period of time, it is worth investing in a local SIM card. It will let you keep in touch with (local) friends, calling taxis and search the Internet without Worrying About roaming charges or wifi. Be sure to bring an unlocked phone, you no longer you can install a local SIM card on a locked phone.


Be sure to look for information before leaving. Almost all cities, even the smaller ones, have a local website That Connects Local events of the following months; Local editions of the magazine Timeout are a great resource Present. And do not hesitate to ask for advice on social networks to your friends or friends of friends, you will be surprised that many people will be more than happy to share information of their beloved city. The more you investigate, the more prepared (and excited!) Will be.

Start networking

If you’re traveling on your own, but do not want to necessarily go without company every vacation, start networking before leaving. Let me know your itinerary as many people as possible starting a blog Travel (Tumblr is a good option because it allows you to tag by destination, for example) and contact friends or friends of friends in Facebook or Instagram. Again, most people will share tips and information enchanted and stay with you for a coffee if they are close.

Aim, shoot, store and display

Let me guess: you’re bound to make thousands of photos you’ll never forget. All new city, every place next to the pool, all morning cappuccino and every historical monument are great to feed your Instagram account. But if you’re going to take pictures the traditional way, with a camera and not with the phone, there are much better ways to save Instagram photos and display them. Upload to your blog or create an online photo gallery with Flickr or Snugmug. (And do not forget to check out our top tips on travel photography).

Learn the local language

Knowing how to communicate with local people is the key to make friends and feel at home in your new city (although only going to be a few days). You do not have to master the language, but knowing some basic phrases will help a lot and the more you know, the better. Before leaving, buy a phrase book (not cost much and are less heavy and easy to carry) and study a little. Being able to book a taxi, buy some food at the local market or explain your allergies a doctor can save your life, believe me!

Carry cash

Unless you’re going to go to Sweden, where the government is promoting a society free cash, the reality in most countries, especially developing countries, it is that cash is still in charge. You not want to end up in the worst unable to pay for food, transportation or lodging for not near an ATM, so make sure you bring enough cash before leaving. But beware of pickpockets, do not keep all your money in one place and never leave it on the bed when you leave your hotel room.


There is nothing to nag more to go around carrying a huge suitcase full of things that probably are not going to get, and do not have enough room to take home those amazing things that you bought without paying for excess baggage on your return flight. To avoid this situation, make sure you control as an expert one of the most essential (and less fun) aspects of the preparation of a trip. Carrying a small suitcase cabin if you are going to make a trip weekend or you’re traveling to a city for a week or less, roll clothes instead of folding, and reevaluates each garment and set you’ve got in the suitcase before closing it, you can do it with a lot less than you think.

And you already have everything prepared and ready to travel.
