There can be a lot of fear and anxiety for first time travelers but don't fret. We've got some advice to help you be more organized, adventurous, and excited about traveling!
When traveling, it's important to try and be as organized as possible. Firstly, making sure you have valid travel documents is a must; you might be thinking 'we'll that's obvious' but you'd be surprised. Now that your travel documents are in order, you'll want to begin strategically packing your clothing, toiletries, and whatever else you deem essential. Our advice is to pack outfits for each day, rather than haphazardly throwing all your favorite clothes into your luggage with hopes that it doesn't surpass the league weight limits. As for toiletries, we like to wrap all of our toiletries up in Ziploc bags before placing them into our toiletry bag - you'll thank us for this one when your sunscreen explodes in transit and doesn't damage your clothes. Lastly, make sure your itinerary is taken care of and the details are to you liking. Sometimes, when you land in an unfamiliar destination, things can get a little overwhelming. Having a well-thought out itinerary is key!
Being adventurous while traveling can mean a lot of different things. For instance, maybe adventurous to you means jumping into crystal-clear water off a thirty-five foot cliff in Santorini, Greece, maybe it means trying one for the spiciest dishes in the world, Chicken Vindaloo, in India, or maybe it means hiking the Inca Trail in Peru. Wherever you travel, make sure you step out of your comfort zone - even just a little bit - and be adventuresome. Allowing yourself to try new things, tackling new experiences that you regularly wouldn't do at home, can be super rewarding and give you invaluable travel memories (and stories that will make your friends jealous). As Mark Twain once wrote, "Twenty year from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the save harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover" - and like Shia LaBeouf said, "Do IT. Just DO IT."
If It's your first time traveling, you might be feeling nervous, anxious or unsure - but be excited! You're about to embark on one of the most fulfilling, fun, and exhilarating experiences of your life. The world is a fascinating place - but how would you know that unless you got out there, right? Our belief is that you should spend your money on experience, not things, and what better way to gain life experience than travel? We can't think of any. While traveling, you'll build strong bonds with your travel companions and relive every exciting memory each time you retell one of your many, fascinating travel stories. After getting your first taste of what this remarkable world has to offer, we guarantee you'll catch the bug.
