We’ve compiled some simple tips and suggestions to help you put the worries aside and focus on the fun! Read on to find out how!
What to do when Planning
Here are some suggestions to keep in mind during the planning process of your next adventure if you’re thinking of thinking alone!
Pro Tip! Keep digital copies on your phone, just in case :)
- Pack Smart!: We totally understand hacking can be stressful, so here are some simple ideas on what to pack and what not to bring regarding personal safety.
Do Bring → essential documents, a map of the city/places you’ll be visiting, and locks for your luggage
Don’t Bring → flashy jewelry like necklaces, bracelets, and rings or expensive valuables like commuters, tablets, or sentimental items
What to do While on your Trip!
Here are some suggestions to keep in mind while traveling so you can enjoy the most out of the adventure while worrying minimally about safety!
Pro Tip! Stuff those items deep into your backpack or opt for the less
fashionable, but just as handy, fanny pack for a travel bag!
- Be Involved, but Don’t be Flashy: Becoming immersed in the culture and community of the new places you’re traveling too is a really great way to expand your horizons, but just as importantly be smart about it. Clothing can be a big factor. Traveling to somewhere with more modest values? Try packing clothes similar to what would be worn there. Overall, just make sure to respect the values of those around you because after all, you’re the visitor!
