THE DO'S OF A HAPPY TRAVELER


1.Patience is important.
Life is much too short to be angry and annoyed all the time. Did you miss your bus? No worries, there will be another one.
2.Wake up early. 
Rise at sunrise to have the best attractions all to yourself while avoiding crowds. It’s also a magical time for photos due to soft diffused light, and usually easier to interact with locals. 
3.Meet local people.
Start conversations with local people. Basic English is spoken widely all over the world, so it’s easier to communicate with them than you might think, especially when you combine hand gestures and body language.Learn from those who live in the country you’re visiting. People enrich your travels more than sights do.
4.Take lots of photos. 
You may only see these places & meet these people once in your lifetime. Remember them forever with plenty of photos. Don’t worry about looking like a “tourist”. Great photos are the ultimate souvenir.Just remember once you have your shot to get out from behind the lens and enjoy the view.
5.Eat local food. 
Taste a bit of everything when you travel, especially if you don’t know what it is. Ask local people for recommendations. 
6.Slow down and do not plan too much
Please don’t try to cram 6 countries into 6 weeks of travel. All the good stuff happens when you really take the time to explore. You’ll learn about activities that aren’t in your guidebook and meet people who are eager to show you around.
7.Pack a scarf. 
This simple piece of cotton cloth is one of my most useful travel accessories with many different practical applications. It’s great for sun protection, a makeshift towel, carrying stuff around, an eye mask, and much more.I can’t tell you how many times a scarf has come in handy around the world.
8.Pack less stuff.
You don’t need 1/2 the gear you think you do to travel anywhere. We’ve all done it. It’s a right of passage for travelers to slowly become better at packing less.If you’re not sure about packing something, you don’t need it.
9.Treat your body well.
lTravel can throw your body out of whack.Remember to be nice to your body. Get enough sleep, stay hydrated, eat healthy,floss,use sunscreen, and exercise often.
10.Get off the beaten path.
I know it’s cliché, but you should still attempt it. Seek out interesting and unusual places that don’t see much tourism. Many memorable travel experiences have happened to me in areas that are not easy to visit. By all means travel to popular sites, but don’t rule out other locations just because they’re not on the tourist trail.
