Getting away for a while to the quiet from the hustle bustle of the city is something every woman wishes for. And when given an opportunity to take a few days off the daily routine, a woman is sure to grab it, run off to an incredibly wonderful expedition and come back relaxed and rejuvenated. Anyone, during a trip, can face problems rather than unwinding oneself. Therefore, it`s important to follow a few simple travel tips that make the trip hassle-free.
Prior to going on the trip, reading traveler`s blogs about the destination and seeking opinions of friends comes very handy. Learning about the attractions and ways to reach there beforehand is a plus. It helps avoid unnecessary attention from the people who can pose a threat. Carrying around a road map is not recommended though one can however; keep a pocket-sized guide to get assistance.
Those who want a hassle free trip should book their tickets, hotel rooms, club reservations, etc. long before the trip starts. It becomes extremely crowded, visiting a popular tourist getaway during peak seasons can be very inconvenient, if travelers don`t have prior reservations. When it comes to accommodation, one must take some time out and run a background check on the hotel – location, amenities, tariff, availability and guest reviews. The location of the hotel should be as such that bus stations, train junctions and airport are in a close proximity.
What to Pack?
Whether it`s a trip to the pristine beaches or the majestic hilly terrains, one must pack a high SPF sunscreen, a good pair of sunglasses and a hat. For a trip lasting around a week, three pairs of shoes are enough wherein one is worn and two packed. The little black dress that passes for every occasion must be packed along with a party wear and two casuals. A wrap, preferably black, must be included. Not only it keeps the body warm, but also complements all kinds of attire.
Keeping the luggage to minimum is always convenient. Packing two small bags rather than a large one keeps the stress at bay. Over-packing the carry-on is a strict no-no for those who are taking a flight. Having a jacket at hand is imperative as the destination may have a colder climate at nights and wearing it on the go rather than packing it is quite sensible.
Playing Street Smart
The first thing to do before leaving the hotel room is keeping the important things like passport, credit cards, extra cash, return tickets and other documents safe. Making copies of passport, credit card, other docs and keeping them tucked away is the most sensible thing to do during a trip. Some people prefer slipping them under the shoes` insoles so that these can be reached whenever required. Other important thing to keep in mind is that only money to be spent daily should be kept in the purse.
