Get to grips know where you’re staying and know the places around it
Some people have a terrible sense of directions. I, myself have a good sense of directions, but not all the time I cannot lie.
Nevertheless, when travelling alone or even with friends, make sure you get to grips the area you are staying in. Well, at least take a look at where you’re staying get the name, and even do some extra research on the different areas you may want to go.
Whatever works out for you, makes sure whenever you are heading back to the hotel, you can quickly speak to your taxi driver and tell them where you need to go.
It’s good that you have some knowledge of where you are. So, make sure you scope out the surroundings.
Keep your phone charged always – have a battery pack on you still
Exploring a brand-new city, where everything looks so amazing. Of course, you are going to want to take loads of photo to show when you go back home.
It’s always essential to have a battery pack with you always because your battery could die before the day is out . Because I know if it were me I would love to spend the day out taking in all the new surrounding.
When travelling with friends or by yourself, make sure your battery is charged always. Just in case bring portable phone charger because what if you want to get directions or make a call to get a cab or book an Uber – it means you’ve got a way to do it your phone is charged…
Never get too drunk when Solo travelling
This tip needs too spoke on a lot more to be fair. This can be applicable whether you’re at home or on your travels. Make sure when you drink your alcohol, you don’t drink too much because as we all know drink too much can make you very vulnerable to others,
I know this doesn’t mean you should not drink at all but instead, make sure you are taking your time. Make sure you pace yourself. Always eat beforehand and have a bottle of water in between each of your drinks (it will help you not get a hangover).
This is so important, especially when you’re travelling alone and even in a group of friends… make sure if you are with a group of friends, make sure you look after each. However, when on solo travel, make sure you keep yourself safe and somewhat sober. This will a lot you get home safely
Bring extra spending money just in case
Spending money makes sure you bring extra spending money just in case of an emergency. Because you never know what could happen, you spend too much by accident and make sure that you are of aware of how much you are spending.
As long as you keep your wits about you when you are solo travelling and group travelling, you can have a fantastic trip, full of the adventure. Just live your life and don’t let anything stop you…. Just make sure you are safe and take extra precautions.
