Traveling to various unique, exotic and new places has become increasingly popular with many groups. In fact, nowadays traveling has become a lifestyle necessity. However, if we are not careful in planning, traveling can actually be a burden. There are several things that deserve to be considered when traveling, wherever the destination is.

• Do research first

Really proven the first step to do is to find information about an interesting place as desired. For people who are first traveling to a new place, doing research is the most vital thing to know about cheap airlines, affordable hotels, weather conditions or interesting culinary places. Now it’s easier to find destination information through travel sites or from travel bloggers who always tell their experiences.

• Arrange a schedule

Preparing an itinerary is a must for not wasting vacation time, Opera Friends. Especially for those who do not use tour & travel services, schedules, locations, distance and costs must be clear. Make sure you make a list of trips before leaving!

• Pack lightly

Be sure to bring items that are only needed so as not to bother you. Examples such as carrying enough clothes and not excessive or footwear that matches the weather. To support the holiday, make sure to also carry a portable camera, battery charger and power bank in one small bag, making it easy to find and reduce the possibility of being missed when traveling.

• Take good care of your luggage

Furthermore, the most important thing when traveling is to make sure your things are safe. If traveling by plane, it is safer if you use a large backpack bag without having to check-in to the trunk. If necessary, make sure the suitcase that will go into the trunk is locked or better yet wrapped in plastic wrap which is usually available at the airport. Then, to make it easier to identify your luggage, make sure Opera friends uses luggage tags that read personal information that can be contacted.

• Internet connection

If you plan to travel abroad and still want to have an internet connection without getting caught in roaming fees, find out whether you can rent pocket wi-fi or buy a prepaid SIM card in the destination country. If you want to save data and battery quota

• Necessary Gadgets

If the Opera Friends likes to take photos, it’s better to use a pocket camera so that your smartphone is not wasteful of batteries and can be used in an emergency. Use the camera on a smartphone only if you want to upload your vacation photos on social media. Google maps is also very useful if we get lost when traveling, but try also to always carry a traditional map if you lose your internet connection.

• Mixing with local residents

You will certainly meet various people from different cultures. Be sure to take the time to interact with local residents and try not to appear too flashy. Your vacation will be even more impressive if you can establish special relationships with local residents, especially if you keep in touch after you go home. There is nothing wrong with adding friends!
