Wow, such a nice trip you’ve got.
Hay, nice pictures and feeds on Instagram and Snapchat.
What an album you’ve posted on Facebook and so on.
All these sentences are nice to hear but no one knows the real struggle behind managing a good trip.
Following are a few things to be done first before you go for your trip:
Check weather condition
You should check weather before planning any route. Because it is the most important factor that can affect positively or negatively.
That’s why make sure that you have 2 weeks’ time interval in case of weather variations.
Try to Travel Light
Try traveling light, especially if you are planning for camping and hiking. As it will cost you a lot more than you expect.
You should be taking little baggage and be relatively free of responsibilities or deep thoughts. Because you’ll walk with your luggage more than you think you will.
Make Trip List
Make your packing list to fit your needs. Making a list includes extension wire, charger, power bank, extra batteries, eatables, and clothes according to weather.
An important thing after returning is going through your bag. Is there anything you packed but didn’t need? Then make a note for the next one.
For a detailed list of things to take with you check the list of things to know before you go.
Always book a hotel in advance
You should start your hotel search as early as you can. If not then at least talk to any random hotel to reserve a room for you.
In case you can’t manage to arrange one in hurry then it will help a lot.
First Aid kit
Don’t forget to take a first aid kit with you. Which includes Panadol, disprin, Flagyl, sunny plast, muscle relaxant tubes, and other basic needs.
You should be ready for vomits, stomach disorders, headaches, and many more while traveling. So, do remember to keep medicines for that purpose.
Don’t compromise on the health conditions of children, rush to the nearest doctor in case of emergency.
Always have a maximum of two main spots covered in one day, so you can at least enjoy whatever you see. As you know “haste makes waste”.
If you are coming the first time while driving, never ever compromise on “sleep and food”.
Never go for a hike for more than an hour (for family and non-hikers) and don’t forget to take ropes, lights, hiking shoes, jackets, and glasses. Although, it takes a lot of courage to put a step outside the home for seeking some adventures and good profile pictures. But never forget these basic but helpful statements.
I hope you will go through all these instructions and also act upon them.
