travel light

Traveling is a lifelong passion for few of us and a rare activity that many of us take when we just have to. Nevertheless it does not undermine the fact that when we travel it is undoubtedly one the most exuberating experiences, it makes us feel free, adds to our list of experiences, gives us a chance to create memories that will last a lifetime and acquaintances that are delightful. The reason some of us love it and many of us find it tiring and complicated, is majorly created by the difference in our travelling style. Those who travel a lot because they love it is because they know “how” to travel! They know what will make their traveling experience more enjoyable and less troublesome, and those of us who whine about it being complicated have yet not grasped what it is to travel convenient and light.

It does not matter whether you are taking a vacation

Alternatively, you are going on a business trip travelling light will always help you be more into the fun of the trip rather than fidgeting and worrying about your luggage. When you have less luggage to worry about you are every second saving, both in terms of cash and in terms of ease of moving around. Now since these days there is a constraint on how much luggage you can carry, and the fees for additional have been increased the airlines are also trying to regulate how much people carry. When you are traveling to a foreign place where you do not know anyone you have to call for pick up. That requires certain expense which only increases when you are loaded with heavy luggage and it may sound weird but in places where small cars are a thing your huge baggage may not even fit in the back of the car.

When you are traveling try to narrow down your requirements, if you be very specific you can divide everything from what is necessary and what can be left behind for a few days. It may seem initially that everything is very important to take along but just sit down and give it a thought can you not live without the elaborate makeup kit you have for just a few days? It will be there when you return.

When you are traveling make sure that you do not glare a neon sign saying that you are traveling. So wear clothes that fit well, but also help you escape the danger stinking, long Capri or skirt along with a modest snug top will always do the trick. When traveling, especially for women, it becomes a little uncomfortable to avoid the stares at foreign place. Well, you can help yourself a bit and make the situation a little modest by dressing a bit conservatively; it may be less comfortable but also will avoid the much unwanted attention. Traveling while having a humongous backup is a sign indicating you are a traveler and that too in capital letters, no need to mention the discomfort it will pose to your backbone at the end of the day. It is always better to lodge into a hostel and change your clothes into something comfy and travel in a friendly way, as for your amenities you can just throw a couple of things you’ll need for a day in your purse, and you will be good to go.

Since it is a foreign place you might not be aware of the weather condition, so it is better if you carry some wipes in case you start to sweat or if you pass an area with unbearable bad odor. You also have to be very specific about keeping bugs at bay and, therefore, carry an appropriate spray with you while traveling.
