4 useful tips for the introvert travellers

Being an introvert doesn’t mean that you can’t meet new people, visit some interesting places and enjoy an amazing travelling. You go into solo travelling and do this stuff, but you need to hear this advice first. They are targeted on the introvert travellers, just like you and I are.

Time to ‘Turn off’ is OK

Introverts may have some active periods when they are ready for communications, meetings and other forms of contact with the surrounding world. But any introvert needs to have some time to ‘Turn off’. To be left alone and to relax without new meetings and dialogues.

You should plan your trip in such a way, that you could afford such time to ‘Turn off’ when it’s needed.

Skip AirB&B, BlaBlaCar and couch surfing

All of the mentioned above and other services allow getting some service cheaper. In such way you can save your money, using someone else’s car or home. But if you are an introvert, you may feel tired of such communal living or travelling. So, think well before you use any of these services.

Use solo activities to relax

If you came to a new place with a group of friends, you still have an opportunity to enjoy your loneliness. For example, a morning run or going to gym may be great excuses.

Feel free to communicate when it’s needed

There are a lot of ways to ‘isolate’ yourself and stop talking to others. But you should remember that introverts don’t necessary go alone everywhere. Sometimes we need communication as well. So, feel free to talk to anyone when you’d like to.

 

Things that you shouldn’t wear when travelling

What are you going to wear when you go to another country? Did you think well about this question?

If you are going to visit the country with the same culture, there won’t be problems with your outlook. But if you are a westerner, who is going to visit some far countries, we should warn you a little. Here is a list of things that you shouldn’t wear while travelling.

1.Flashy jewelry

The reason for leaving your expensive jewellery at home is simple. Tourists are #1 target for thieves anywhere in the world. Rich tourist with lots of jewellery is the even more attractive target. That’s why we recommend you refusing to take jewellery with yourself before going to trip.

2.Religiously immodest things

It depends on the countries you are going to visit. But if you are planning to visit some churches or mosques, you should think forward about the clothes you are going to take. Also if you are going to visit some religious countries, you should learn more about their traditions and things that are allowed to wear.

3.Sneakers and open-toe shoes

Wearing sneakers is acceptable for the sports activities only. Open-toe shoes are not good because they are not comfortable for walking. So, your best option is taking a comfortable and good-looking shoes.

4.Cameras

A hanging camera is a typical symbol of a tourist. And as we know, tourists are the #1 targets for thieves. That’s why you’d better use your smartphone for making instant photos.

And, finally, the general recommendation is to wear clothes in the way locals do it. You will feel yourself comfortable if you look like a local in any country where you go.

How to travel to Cuba?

Cuba is a country with a quite strange history. While it’s so close to the United States, it was controlled by the communists, what made the country much less developed than it probably could be. Also, there is an issue in the relationship between Cuba and the USA. In 1960 the US imposed an embargo against Cuba after the nationalization of the American oil without any compensation. This story leads to the restriction for the Americans to visit Cuba. Formally it’s active even today. As a result, it became quite difficult for the citizens of the United States to visit Cuba. But it’s still possible.

There are different ways you can reach Cuba. The first one is getting a special license, which confirms that you have some reasons for visiting this country. It should be registered by the US Government. Another way is creating some cultural basis for getting there, like some volunteering or helping to the local society. This is also used as a formal reason to visit the country. Finally, you can simply come to Cuba illegally from Canada or Mexico. Of course, this method is recommended for you only if you don’t have any other chance to come to the country.

The travelling to Cuba itself isn’t that expensive. You need to buy Cuban tourist visa for $20 USD at the airport. The trip can cost you as low as $240 USD (a budget flight from Cancun to Havana). Soon some commercial US flight companies are going to offer their services as well, what may decrease the cost.
