25 Travel Tips

I cherish to explore new different places and admire the huge range of cultural existing in the world. From the few travels I made, I compiled 25 Travel Tips to share and I'll continue sharing as my Travel get no ending. Below are my 25 travel tips

1- Do research.

Know where you're traveling to, take out your time so you're aware of their culture, tradition and their DO and DON'T in other not to get yourself into trouble. In some countries there are certain places you might not be permitted to enter or things not to touch.

2 - Health check up.

Always visit your Medical Doctor and Dentist for check up before you leave.

3- Get a simple bag

I don't like travelling with 2 or more bags. All I do is to get a space saver bag that will contain all I need to go with... Simple and less heavy.

 4- Toothpaste and Ideal toothbrush

without these you cannot be able to communicate properly due to halitosis.


Toiletries are so important when it comes to packing list.

6- Make up box

This is another important thing especially for females

 7- Towel

Never you forgot packing up your towel. So important.

 8- Bathing soap

Consider whether solid or liquid so it can be accommodated and less heavy as well.

 9 -Get a good camera.

As a travel blogger you need a good camera. Nikon, Cannon or any other of your choice, take time and study how it works before you leave. Your photos will be some of your best memories.

For your travelling items such as camera, make up, dress, sunglasses, back pack bag and other things check here

10-Park your things the night before you travel.

This will bring rest of mind and in case you forgot some things you can be able to get them and you're good to go.

11- Travel with an ID card or carry around spare passport photos.

ID card will help to identify or tell whom you're  in case of accident or been being caught up by security personnel. With spare passport, you use them to apply for visas around the world and to get new passport when the one in use expired. Having spares in my bag meant that I don't have to waste a time researching and then wandering around a city to trying to find where to take a passport sized photo of me.

12- Move early

Think of it, going to a country you've not been to late. You need to start your journey so early so you can study the environment especially within the area you'll stay.

13- Try local food

I like food but when it comes to eating outside my locality; I don't have enough courage to try.
Now food is my favorites way to get to know places better and make friends as well. I never would have discovered hundreds if not thousands of amazing dishes if I'd continue finding it scary or eating from hotels.

14-Properly check food menu

One of my biggest regrets from the few travels I made was o unable to check food menu very well before ordering.
I saw Rice on the menu and ordered for it not knowing it's pepper rice. I like pepper but hate it when it's too much. I cried out loud. Pepper rice? gosh!. Try read my article titled "my pepper rice experience"

15- Learn their language

In every country you visit try learn a few words of the languages, even if you're not a language freaking type ;at least learn how to say Come, go, thank you and their greetings. It will help you in making friends, associate, buying things cheaper and of quality. You can use a translation app on your phone if don't see someone to teach you.

16-Take photos on the go

I love taking photos of the places I visit whether beautiful or not. Photos with you in them are special and they'll come to mean a lot more. Post them on your social media page and sit back to watching people's reaction over it.

17 - Permission to take photos

Always seek for permission before you start taking photos with people or of people and their belongings.

18 - Back up your photos.

Too bad if lost every single photo from your trip. So back everything up maybe in clouds or Google photo app in your device.

19 - Travel with a spare battery

Imagine how you would feel if you go to a place and you found the last time they had light was few weeks ago and not expecting anything sooner.

20- Charge your devices whenever you have the chance.

Lol... Am use to this, like seeing 100% charged, unplug your device. I always go with my charger in case I see a free socket. So get a lightweight charger for your device.

21- No network

You have nothing to worry about. Just walk out with friends and documents all you want . You will like it, nobody to disturb you with calls. Time to focus

22-Don't lose your temper.

Don't regret it yet. Put yourself together and find a place to put smile on your face.

23- Extra cash

Travel with extra cash in case of any emergency.

24- Make use of ATM.

Don't move around with much cash, you might be robbed. Go with little cash in case ATM disappoint you.

25- Finally, always look for a cheaper flights and a cheaper accommodation. Check here for your Cheap flights booking and Hotel accommodation
