Several countries, thousands of flights and endless car trips. This is the life of a travel writer, and it teaches you a lot of good things. I would like to share some of my travel tips with you as I have found them very useful on every trip I have made.
It's time to talk to different people. The waiter, concierge, bar staff or that customer sitting at the next table who looks good. Ask them questions about what to see and you will find that people will love to share their advice and knowledge with you. Trust me, a lot of people get nervous, but start a random conversation and you're just a step away from the next hidden pearl.
Get out of bed
This is the most difficult thing to manage, especially for those who like to stay in bed a little longer than usual. It is best to get up early because there is a lot going on before brunch. So go out and head to a breakfast dinner in Washington or hit the best beach in Italy before hordes of tourists make it there. Trust me, you will not regret this one; you can sleep as much as you like once you get home.
Keep your phone charged
There is nothing worse than being out of technology due to a discharged battery. Keep a power bank with you so you never run out of battery.
Join the Cloud
This iPhone is worth no value, and it's for one main reason: the pictures. Memories are the best thing you ever do on a trip, and without them the charm of going on a trip will be lost. Gone are the days when you use to keep manual backup. Apple now protects you with iCloud, configure your cloud and access all photos and videos from anywhere.
Don't forget your favorite
Remember that fantastic restaurant that you visited the last time you visited New York four years ago? No? It is bad! Next time, just ask your phone to remember, in Google Maps, just write the name of the place, then hit "save". This method will help you mark it with a star so you can always go back and check it.
From Amsterdam to Cambodia, being short of money is not much. You won't find an ATM everywhere, and you can't always use your debit / credit cards to pay for hotels, bars, and restaurants. Take around $ 150 of emergency cash with you in USD or the local currency of the destination you are visiting.
