Traveling is an incredible way to learn about different places, peoples, cultures, cuisines, and customs. I have always loved to travel. Call it wander-lust or adventurous or whatever, whether you want to see the world or just the beauty of your own country, travel is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to combine fun with education, without even trying. When you travel, whether for business or pleasure, you are unconsciously exposed to the different things the place you are visiting has to offer, especially those things that are not available where you live. It's a learning experience.
With the world at your fingertips via the internet, you have everything you need to plan every detail of your trip, from where to go to how to get there to what to do while there (if you aren't working).
Here are the basics of a trip:
When planning your trip, be sure to shop around online so you can compare prices before buying. It always amazes me how different the prices can be at different sites for the same thing, so doing some research ahead of time can save you big time. If you are flying, even the difference between leaving on one day or the next can really reduce your fares, so if you have any flexibility there be sure to check fare differences. Also, with some locations and hotels, different times of the year offer different room rates, and year-round, weeknights are less expensive than weekends.
Regardless of where you are going, it pays to have the right accessories. For me, that means a nice suitcase with wheels and one small shoulder bag for each member of our family. I also carry a camera (and film and batteries). We take maps of the places we are going and if to a country with a different language, a phrasebook. Don't forget the electrical adapters either!
