“I wish I knew this before” is what I said when I travelled for the first time many moons ago.
And, like me, that’s what many travellers feel when they embark on their first trip. While travelling is a learning experience, there are some things every traveller should know.
Here are 5 of our tips:
Do not be shy: I am at my most sociable when I travel. You get to meet interesting people from around the world. Remember that everyone is uncomfortable at first, but a simple "hi" can spark a life-long friendship. You have to make the first move.
Be fearless: It may seem daunting visiting a new country, especially when you are a solo traveller, but one trait every good traveller embodies is fearlessness. Travellers should embrace the unknown as those are some of the moments that truly define a trip.
