SUMMARY

Students of this generation are travelling more than their parents ever did at their age

While this is a healthy pastime to indulge in, it is fraught with peril

Students of this generation are travelling more than their parents ever did at their age. While this is a healthy pastime to indulge in, it is fraught with peril. You can avoid travel mishaps by following these simple steps:

Make sure to plan for delays and try not to get upset when things inevitably go wrong. Patience is important when traveling!

Make a list of places you need to visit, things you need to do, people you need to meet, and make sure you create a list so that things can flow smoothly.

Learn the common phrases of the local language. This comes in handy especially during your shopping where a few common phrases are good courtesy.


Always buy travel insurance. It is important to do so in case of any emergencies you will be helped easily with foreign insurance policies.

Make photocopies of important documents to ensure you are not caught flatfooted in the event you lose originals.

Pack extra undergarments. It doesn’t seem crucial until an emergency pops up and you need a change of garment. Better safe than sorry.

Pre- plan your outfits. Instead of wasting time when getting ready, it’s always a great idea to already know what you’re going to wear to save you the hustle of looking for outfits when you’re about to go up and down.

Always have your hotel address on you. You can save them in your phone to make it easier in case you get lost.
