by AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing

The past couple weeks, we have been reviewing 5 travel tips that can be applied to your life as well inspired by Amanda’s Blog “A Dangerous Business” and her post “26 Things Travel Has Taught Me.” Here are 5 more tips:

  1. Everyone's travel style should be comfortable for them. Not everyone is going to enjoy backpacking while some might not enjoy luxury hotels. It's all a matter of preference.

    Everyone’s travel style should be comfortable for them. Not everyone is going to enjoy backpacking while some might not enjoy luxury hotels. It’s all a matter of preference.

     Everyone has a unique travel style that fits them. Some prefer roughing it with a backpack and no real agenda while others prefer the life of luxury and seek elegance in their travels too. Don’t worry about what others might think about your preferences as these can potentially change as you get older or with different circumstances. The bottom line is, have fun no matter what kind of traveler you are!

  2. Staying in a Hostel provides an inexpensive and traveler friendly experience for those on a budget. You can also meet lots of other travelers as well.

     Hostel’s are convenient and cheap alternatives for travelers on a budget. These are a great way to meet others if you are venturing alone. In some countries, you can even work the front desk for free accommodations.

  3. Technology allows us to book everything related to travel and tourism these days and also keeps us connected to the ones we love.

     Technology means we are never really alone anymore. Technology has allowed us to book everything from flights, accommodations, rental cars, tour operators, etc. all online. We can also instantly connect with our friends and family using social media and applications such as Skype even if we are across the world!

  4. Being able to read a map the old fashioned way will come in handy still in all of life's journeys.

     Still Being able to read an old-fashioned map will come in handy. Yes technology has allowed for online mapping systems and GPS that can pin-point our exact location but sometimes they don’t do the trick. Map-reading is a great skill to still embody, especially when there is no internet access.

  5. Being lost in a new place will open up even more possibilities. Just make sure you are safe and go explore.

    Being lost in a new place will open up even more possibilities. Just make sure you are safe and go explore.

     If you happen to still get lost along the way, be sure to relish in the experience (as long as you are still safe). Getting lost in a new place can allow you to interact with the locals, find hidden treasures, and get off of the beaten tourist path so get lost often.

We hope that these travel tips will be applied to your day-to-day lives as well! Safe journey’s everyone! 🙂
