Rookie Mistakes

Hello and welcome to my blog๐Ÿ˜œ

I’m sure everyone has travelled at some point or other and travelling can be an amazing experience if you are well prepared๐Ÿ˜‚ and sometimes I find myself a little too prepared๐Ÿ’

I just want to rant about all the mistakes I’ve made as a rookie traveller ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Over packing – this has been my biggest mistake! I officially own 30kg of stuff ๐Ÿ˜œ still, nothing that I really use๐Ÿ™Š mostly just “I might need this” sort of things ๐Ÿ˜‚ but I am slowly weaning off the excessive baggage๐Ÿ‘œ

Packing too many shoes๐Ÿ™ˆ omw๐Ÿ™Šall I’ve really needed is a comfy pair that matches everything ๐Ÿ’and trainers for my workouts๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜‚

Forgetting your charger isn’t a good idea- just don’t do it- pack it first๐Ÿ˜‚ it is just an unnecessary cost!

Taking a taxi and assuming the driver speaks English๐Ÿ˜ญ they will rob you, by driving around in circles just to accumulate more miles๐Ÿ˜‚ this costs money! The rascals! My advice, learn basic words and phrases in the local language๐Ÿ‘ but then again google translate is also a good app ๐Ÿ’ญ

Toiletries! Where do I start??? You don’t need everything in your bathroom cabinet ๐Ÿ˜„ an all purpose body wash/moisturiser, toothbrush and paste, hairbrush (optional) ๐Ÿ˜‚ I don’t like brushing my hair๐Ÿ™ˆ a very good antiperspirant and that’s about it really ๐Ÿ™‚

FYI: there’s apparently an all purpose body, hair, face and teeth wash!!! I need to get ahold of that! ๐Ÿ’ญ

Oh and sunscreen, chap stick and mascara… There’s going to be pictures๐Ÿ’ of cause ๐Ÿ˜œ

A really good camera -that has enough charge and memory- and a note book is essential. Do not underestimate a moment captured or recorded. Take photos of everything and write about it all. These are your memories ๐Ÿ’‹

Know the weather, more or less, you do not want to be unprepared. Buying new clothes might sound like a brilliant idea but spending unnecessarily cuts into your budget! A big no no! ๐Ÿ‘Ž

Do not try to do too many things at once. Get plenty of rest. Make sure to plan sight seeing activities around sleep๐Ÿ˜‚ if you are anything like me, you will be moody and annoy everyone else if you are tired! You won’t enjoy your trip๐Ÿ˜‚

I can’t think of anything else ๐Ÿ’ญ these have been by biggest set backs ๐Ÿ˜œ oh and if you lock your luggage! Do not misplace the keys๐Ÿ˜‚

That’s a little look into my untold travel secrets ๐Ÿ™‚ not secrets anymore!

Remember we don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents :)๐ŸŒธ

And have fun where ever your journey takes you ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒผ

Peace, love, travel
