Bon Voyage! Travel Season : A Note From One Traveler To Another

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page”. That pretty much sums up  our views on traveling and life. The change in season has the traveling juices flowing so what better way to get motivated and inspired than to do a recap on some of the most beautiful places we have been to as well as share some useful and maybe obvious traveling tips we have learnt along the way.

Explore, explore, explore this is probably the most obvious tips. It is easy to pick a location and identify all the landmarks and exciting places you are going to visit.  But is there going to be enough time and are the places open the times you are there. So checking open times and sometimes even booking ahead for some of these places will make the touring experience seamless and not spending 2 hours waiting in a queue waiting to go into e.g. the Anne Frank museum, which is what happened to us because we just turned up without planning.

Yes touring, exploring and becoming cultured is important but don’t forget sometimes all you need to do is just seat back, relax and actually take time to enjoy the scenery. So go to the beach, order some cocktails even carbs forget the diet and relax and enjoy the view. Or go to a cool cocktail bar, club or street festival. Just have fun and enjoy it.

Don’t forget to create memories, not only be in the moment and enjoy it but do captures some of these memories so you can always look back on them. An idea would be to even create a Polaroid album and keep a picture or two or several if you can’t pick one. Then look back when you are seating at home and its rainy and cloudy outside haha.

What kind of holidays do you like sunny or winter destinations x

    I love that opening quote! Where is if from? It is so true…I’m usually an on the go type of gal, and it’s hard for me to rest and relax without feeling like I’m “wasting” time! But after extensively traveling, I realize how important it is to give the body some rest and just to enjoy the simple pleasures in life – not just in a crowded museum.

      I can’t remember where I got it from but the source was anonymous-It really is important to take some time out and just relax and enjoy everything. I used to be like that too….
