Use bloggers to find out more

When we talk about getting more information about any place, we mention some locals in most of times. We mean meeting an ordinary person, asking him or her about the way of their living, ask them to show some interesting places in their city, etc. In the most cases talking to locals is the riches source of a knowledge for travellers.

On the other hand, sometimes locals won’t show you some special places, because they don’t visit them by themselves. In such cases we’d like to advice you to stick to some blogger, who is familiar with the city much better. These people will be able to tell you much more anyway!

Most of the travelling tips don’t mention this, but contacting the bloggers is a great way of learning something extraordinary. They are also familiar with some social problems, their scales and reasons. And, frankly speaking, contacting with a blogger may be better for you due to the simplicity of the way to find and ask them. All you need to do is writing to a person before you arrive there. In most cases they’ll agree with you to have a cup of coffee and chat a little in some coffeeshop.

The great benefit would be having a blog, running by you. If you’ve got such one, your meeting would be even more productive! You could make a guest posts in your blogs, or exchange with some links, tips or experience in your blogging practice. So that it’s much better, than just asking locals!

While going on the trip, we take some valuable things, like electronics, documents, and some travelling gears, with us. In order to protect them from stealing, we’d like you to read these simple tips. They are rules, which will make your trip safer.

1.Sleep carefully

While sleeping, take all of the valuable things you have with you. Passport, money, memory cards – these things must be always present close to you. So that nobody could take them while you are asleep.

2.Split your money

You know the proverb: “Don’t keep your eggs in one basket”… The same principle should be followed with your money reserves during your trip. Split all of the money you have into different stashes so that losing one of them won’t bring you huge problems.

3.Lock your bag

Today there are different ways to keep your backpack locked. A PacSafe locker is a good example of such a solution. It makes your bag a perfect place for placing your valuable things.

4.Remember about your personal secure

There are some basic tips, related to your personal secure, which you should always follow. They include such rules, like ‘don’t walk alone in unfamiliar places’, ‘don’t book a room in the unfamiliar hotel without reviews’, ‘don’t give your backpack to anyone’ and so on.

While travelling, you meet many unfamiliar people, who you should communicate with. Some of them may be interesting and useful for you, while others may bring harm to you. So, be careful and attentive – and have a nice trip.

Protect your skin while travelling

When you go into a trip, you don’t think about the protection of your skin, as a rule. You think about some clothes, some most-needed things, some medicines and so on. However, protecting your skin from the sun radiation is no less important task, especially if you are going to visit some hot countries with sunny weather.

The sun radiation is everywhere. Even in the cloudy weather, some radiation rays access our planet, affecting our body and our skin.

Scientists claim that there may be different results of sun affection on our skin. From aging processes to cancer – all of these problems may be caused by the sun. It’s especially dangerous if you have a light skin – the most vulnerable skin type. However, it’s so simple to protect your skin – just use sun protection on your journey!

Any sun protective spray has its own SPF-value. It shows the level of protection, measured in the value between 10-15 to 85-90. The higher this value is – the more protected your skin will be.

Different experienced travel bloggers advice to take sun protection anywhere you go. It takes just a few minutes to put spray or cream on your face and be sure, that you won’t get burned. The SPF level should be picked according to the type of a skin you have,the higher it is – the higher your cream sun protection factor should be. Following this simple rule will save your face skin on any trip!

 

Affordable accommodations to save your money

Many travellers, despite the popular misconceptions, choose not some expensive hotels to stay for the night. They can stay at some pretty affordable accommodations, which we are going to discuss in this article. Here are some of them.

1.Hostels for backpackers

They are everywhere. Any country has affordable hostels with everything, which is enough for an overnight stay. Clean, simple bed in a small room, – what do you need more? Some additional services, like a toilet and a shower, are included. But for staying in such conditions, you need to pay no more than $5-10 per night. Sounds like a good deal, doesn’t it?

2.Locals

Locals are anywhere you go – these people also need money and they have some apartments, so sometimes you can help each other. Offer them $5-10 per night and they allow you to stay in some empty room of their house or flat. The benefit of such an approach is communication with people, who know much about the real life in their country.

3.Volunteers organizations

Some of the volunteer’s organizations may be presented in the place you are going to visit. The best way to know, whether they offer any place for staying, is to check their website or a social media feed. Sometimes these organizations offer their services to the travellers for free, asking to do some simple work from your side.

4.Couchsurfing

Of course, Couchsurfing is a great movement, which allows you staying at someone’s apartments for free! Just join their community and be open-minded, in order to find new friends with apartments in the place you are going to visit!

Less stuff for traveller is good

When you pack your stuff, preparing to visit some new countries, you can often think wrong about your needs in the future. As a result, you may bring too much of unnecessary things, that will be too difficult to be carried. In this article, we’d like to talk more about this.

First of all, we should clear our one more thing. Under ‘travelling’ we mean not just a visit to some Goa ‘all-inclusive’ hotel. In this case, you can definitely predict your activities and take everything, which will help you on a trip. Now we mean some more ‘wild’ travelling, visiting some interesting countries, which can share the new experience with you. In this case, you probably won’t be able to say for sure, whether you’ll need this or that, or no. But be ready to use one universal rule, given by an experienced author, who runs a travelling blog: ‘You don’t need ½ the gear you pack’. Actually, it may seem ridiculous – but it’s a holy true.

The more experienced is the traveller – the less number of goods he takes to his trip. Many interesting people, who share their travelling experience, confirm this principle. For example, one more blogger claims, that after 4 years of travelling his backpack is twice smaller. Besides, he keeps rule to carry everything with himself, just in this single backpack. No additional luggage is taken!

So, next time you pack your goods, think well about this post. Believe it – your trip will last longer if you carry less.
