Put Down the Cell Phone
We watch so many groups of people spending so much time capturing the perfect selfie at a monument or stunning scenic lookout that they forget to see what is in front of them.
A photo is nice to have, but it’s how you feel in the moment that you will remember forever. It’s a marvelous world that is full of noise right now.
Travel gives you the opportunity to block out the noise, so put down your Smartphone and be present instead.
You will have a far more fulfilling and memorable experience.
Don’t Go Into Debt
This is one of the most important tips for traveling we can give you. Don’t spend beyond your means.
You’ll regret every moment of your travels if you come back from a trip of a lifetime only to face a mound of debt.
Instead of spending a fortune of international travel, enjoy getaways in your own backyard. When Dave and I were dreaming of traveling the world, we explored a lot of our home province of Ontario, Canada.
Stay out of debt by packing up bikes and camping gear for cheap weekend getaways.
Live frugally while we explored your own backyard and had great adventures. Do not mind that you are not flying to international destinations because your lives were full.
Hire Local Guides
To do an epic adventure you need skill and experience.
Importantly, hire professionals to help you out when you need it.
One piece of advice for good travel when traveling together.
It can’t be one person dictating where you are going and what you are doing.
Don’t be one of those couples that constantly take separate vacations or go their separate ways when they travel.
Those couples throughout your lives and most of them are not together anymore.
If you give and take and try things that you don’t want to do, you may find out you like it. And you’ll make your partner really happy.
Sure, go separate ways sometimes and spend the odd afternoon apart, but don’t live separate lives. Find common ground to make your travels work together.
If you follow this advice, it will make for nice and easy traveling as a couple.
Invest in Travel Insurance
This is seriously one of the best tips we can offer for travel. Buy travel insurance.
A lot of people say to us, “I only need travel insurance if I am going to somewhere remote.
Travel Insurance is going to help you when you need it.
Get travel medical insurance.
One important thing to note is that most travel insurance policies and platinum card plans don’t include medical evacuation coverage, so you should definitely consider purchasing a protection supplement such as Medjet.
