  • First, please remember that travel is not some magical thing where nothing ever goes wrong. Airlines are going to have cancellations. Hotel reservations get messed up. Taxis don’t just come out of nowhere. When things go wrong, learn to laugh at them.
  • it is wise to get up and go first thing in the morning. Mornings are great times to take pictures. And lots of people do not like getting up early in the morning, so getting up will help you beat at least some of the crowds
  • To get a feel for life in a certain place, go sit in a busy part of town for a couple of hours. And just watch life happen all around you. Listen to the sounds see the sights and observe the people. Enjoy all the different smells. You don’t need to always be doing the tourist thing.
  • When you are traveling, you are not going to know all of the rules of how everything is done. You are going to mess up from time to time. Learn to laugh at yourself when things like that do come up.
