Traveling solo is much trickier than you think it would be. At first, you don’t have anyone to get your back, second there are plenty of things that you have to carry on your own that could have been shared and helped reducing the luggage weight. And on top of that, if you are a women traveler, there are tons of things that you better be knowing. Becoming a smart traveler doesn’t require a doctorate degree. All it need is some smart travel tips that help you to save a lot of time, efforts and above all money. So, here we are, showing the most amazing things every female traveler should know:
- Light packing is the key to successful trip
When we travel, we often think of possibilities of worst scenarios and end up doing over packing. As a result, we are not only stranded alone carrying our heavy luggage, but often get in trouble about what to wear and when. This also brings new problems of laundry that cause way more than you can think especially while getting accommodated in a luxurious hotel. Keeping your wearables sorted is something that should be well practiced for a long journey. For an instant, a couple of jeans a few tops and a couple of dresses are more than sufficient for a week-long trip.
- Traveling across the World doesn’t require too much makeup
Unlike business travelers, if you are traveling to explore nature, culture, festivals and other worldly factors, you don’t require too much of makeup. Wearing makeup at the outdoors is a waste of time, money and the efforts as the sweaty streets and polluting roads will dull all the heavy makeups. Instead, try some sunscreen with higher SPF levels to stay away from sunburn and heavy pollution. While traveling in the woods and nearby the natural areas, no one is going to gaze up on you, so you can stroll freely without any makeup at all.
- Pre-planning is good, but too much planning is bad
It is often said, planning prior to actions bring great results. However, if you are planning a getaway, planning every step, every hour of your itinerary before taking off will kill the mood of traveling and reduce the fun that could have been better while strolling spontaneously. We often leave our itinerary to our home in case of emergency contact, which is a good thing, but planning every second while you are away doesn’t make a perfect trip. Trying something new, something unique and interesting which can increase the good experience tenfold.
- You don’t always need someone’s help to make hard steps
Accept it. There are times when you need someone to take the responsibility of your action and you just find a way to get out from the consequences. Finding a cheaper hotel, budget flights, sightseeing tours, guides and monetary decisions are often taken with the help of others. Well, in case you are traveling alone, you are not going to call your father/mother or the boyfriend to take permission of every step taken. Instead, try exploring new possibilities which can come in handy at some level. Discovering new and exciting things is what a travel is all about.
- Following safety measures
The most important thing about traveling is to know when to stop and understanding what are the boundaries. Hitchhiking at a strange place may lead to trouble. Also, getting excited and following too much of adventure can be a dangerous thing unless you are acquainted with every aspect of it. Knowing the emergency contacts and practices of your respective destination is also a great idea to stay safe while traveling late in the night or at the neighborhoods that are considered a little dangerous. Also, it is better to know about the local transport off time and basic calculation of fares.
There are several other things that every female traveler should know including the general behavior of local area, dining etiquettes, cults and more while traveling to the destinations in Asia and Far-East.
