The Beginner’s Guide To International Travel
If there is one thing that should be on every person bucket list, it’s international travel. Whether you’re going to a neighboring country or you’re planing a trip halfway around the world there is so much see, and you don’t want miss out.
Traveling has completely changed my life. It has opened up my eyes to so many different, beautiful and amazing things that I wouldn’t have seen if I has never ventured abroad.
I know that it can be scary to take your first international trip, and it requires a lot of preparation. But don’t worry! It’s easier than you might think.
Here is everything that you might need to know about international travel !
Apply for a Passport
When you’re traveling internationally, your passport is your most prized possession. Your number one goal is to keep that little blue book safe and ready to go.
Research your dream destination
Not sure where to go ? Get on pinterest ! Whenever I’m stuck by wanderlust. I dig around pinterest until i find my dream destination.
Don’t be afraid to get off the beaten path.
If a place catches your eye, start researching. Read about traveler’s experiences and drool over their pics. It won’t take a long for you to have a must visit list that’s a mile long.
Check for visas and travel requirements
Before you star booking a ticket and accommodation, check the travel requirements for your nationality. Ultimately, you can show up with no reservations and make it work, but not having the right visa will stop your tracks.
Checking for recommended or requires vaccinations is also very important. I always check the Center of disease control’s website to confirm which vaccination I need.
Consider your budget
When you travel, spend your cash on what you love. Don’t feel like have to go to all of the hyped up tourist attractions.
Save your money so that you can splurge on things that you’ll always remember.
Get one night on a fancy hotel or go out for an incredible meal rather than shelling out cash for starbucks or other forgettable expenses. Once you have a “splurge versus save” list for your destination, you can start planning.
