Protect Yourself

It is superrrr easy for tourists to get identified because oftentimes, they carry on things that make them distinct. Things like cameras, fanny packs and maps make it easy to spot tourists. Always remember to be security conscious especially when you get started on your trip from your departure country. Keep ID and travel documents in a safe and distinct place so you can always reach for it when it’s needed. Try not to pack all your valuables in one bag so that if you lose a bag, you don’t lose all your valuables.

Make the Most of it

This is probably the most important part of it, enjoy your holiday! Keep an open mind, make new friends, learn new phrases, fraternise with locals, buy souvenirs and visit local attraction sites. If by chance, your summer trip is business oriented, you can still have lots and lots of fun! As they say, you only live once – YOLO!
