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 bagI 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 toothbrushwithout these you cannot be able to communicate properly due to halitosis.
5-Toiletries.Toiletries are so important when it comes to packing list.
6- Make up boxThis is another important thing especially for females
7- TowelNever you forgot packing up your towel. So important.
8- Bathing soapConsider 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.

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 earlyThink 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 foodI 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 menuOne 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 languageIn 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 goI 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 photosAlways 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 batteryImagine 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 networkYou 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 cashTravel 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
