Want to start travelling but don’t know where to start? Well, his about exploring the beautiful parts within your country’s borders first? Most of us are keen on trying new cultures before we internalize our own. After you have explored enough of your home, neighboring countries are the obvious choicejust before you expand your thoughts.
How do you make the most of your travel?
- Document Everything!
We live in the digital era where you can share your journey with the world at the click of a button. Instagram has especially taken the world by storm by not only giving you the chance to share amazing things with your friends, but also earning you an income while at it. Also, some cheeky people say it is the ideal way to show off, so if bragging rights are your thing, go for it. Documentation preserves memories of places that were dear to you too.
- Don’t Wait for the Crowd
Visiting an island during summer is the best way to get lost in a sea of people. You will feel like a tourist even though your heart yearned for a local’s experience. Instead of peak season when everything including the cost of facilities will be higher, choose the off-peak season, which may not be the best in terms of weather, but could be rewarding. There are always activities to do for any season,anyway.
- Forget the Market Path
Get lost on travel. Go off the market path to discover hidden joys. This means going to destinations that you have never heard of or just staying in places that you would otherwise not go, as long as they are safe. Think about it this way: if you know a destination off the top of your head, chances are several others do too.
- Don’t sweat the Small Stuff
No part of the world is 100% safe. If you pay attention to every bomb threat, every likely missile launch and possible terror threat, you will never leave home. Not to say that you should ignore travel advisories, but sometimes anticipating trouble makes it possible to travel out of your comfort zone.
- Pitch and Publish your Articles
You may not officially be in business and so your expenses will not qualify for small business deduction, but you can still make enough to spend in your next destination. Hotels are facing a great deal of competition from AirBnB and so they are trying to make their services as high-quality as possible. Since they will need all the marketing they can get,you could score a sweet accommodation deal from an establishment in exchange for you marketing them to your networks. Of course, having a vibrant online presence will go a long way. Want to make more money? Pitch the article on your destination to an editor of a travel magazine and you could earn just enough for transport to your next destination.
Most importantly,enjoy your trip! Have fun in every destination.
