Advice for Long-Term Travelling

Going on a week-long holiday and going long-term travelling are two completely different experiences, and so it can be daunting to take the plunge and commit to the latter. After making this decision myself, I was addicted to the rush of exploring new territories and discovering that I can cope with the constant movement. More than that, I learned how to turn travelling into a lifestyle. If it’s something you’ve considered or if you’re already out there living it, I’ve put together some advice for how to make the most of it and really enjoy your experience.

  1. Don’t sleep in.

One of the worst things you can do when you’re exploring is wake up late and miss half of the day. Remember, you haven’t come this far to lie in bed. Go out at the crack of dawn and seize the day. See the sunrises and make your way to the attractions and tourist sites before anyone else. You’ll fit so much more into your day, and chances are it’ll be higher quality activities than you can access at night. Yes, it might be fun to go out drinking in bars from time to time, but you’ll find this is far more dangerous than waking early and seeing the sights that your destination has to offer.

  1. Smile.

Often those who travel feel that the locals aren’t best pleased with their presence. This is potentially because you look so worried about it! Try to relax and enjoy yourself, chances are if you smile at locals they’ll smile back.

  1. Sometimes it’s good to go to obscure places.

You probably won’t go to Paris without going to see the Eiffel Tower. That’s a given. But if you want to find out how the people of Paris truly live, try going to little café’s and local parks. Get a feel for the real day-to-day life of the public. Where do they shop? Where do they work? Speak to the locals and get advice on the best hidden gems of the city or town. The more you communicate with the locals, the more you’ll get from your experience.

  1. Try the local cuisines.

It can be tempting to stick with what you know when it comes to food. A lot of travellers make the mistake of eating at chain restaurants and fast food venues that they recognise from home. Try to avoid this. Different cultures have different eating styles which are indicative of the locals habits. In India you’ll find many restaurants prefer lots of dishes in the centre of the table to share among the diners. This promotes a feeling of togetherness and sharing at meal times. Adapting to the customs of the locals will also help you to make friends and fit in more.
