Traveling is awesome for enjoyment, exploration, and getting a new perspective. That said, traveling takes time and money you might not have. To make the best of your vacation and not hurt your wallet too much, here is some advice.
It is important to write down all key information if you are traveling abroad. Record the address, website, and telephone number of the embassy or consulate in your country of destination. If you run into any issues during your travels, these are the people you will need to immediately contact. If you have any issues, they can help you out.
List what you intend to take with you on a trip. Between one week and three months before you leave for a trip, sit down and write down every item you are going to take with you. This way, you can avoid clutter and panic, even if you have to throw things together on short notice.
Be sure to have a good, clear, color photo of your child on hand to be prepared in the unhappy event your child becomes lost. Losing your child can be a scary prospect. Unfortunately, it can happen. Having a photo of your child handy in case they get lost in a crowd could end up making a huge difference.
IF you are in a foreign city, make sure that you are not dealing with people posing as police or other officials. Never hand over your original passport, as you might not get it back. If an officer or official asks you to come to their office, do so on foot. In order to stay safe, never ride in a car with someone you don’t know.
No matter where your travels take you, these tips should help you with the planning process. Regardless, if you plan ahead, your trip is sure to be fulfilling, interesting and something that you will never forget.
