10 Things You Should Consider While Traveling

10 Things You Shouldn’t Do While Traveling

Travelling is one of life’s great adventures: the chance to get to know new people and laces while getting to know yourself better at the same time. However, sometimes adventure comes with a little risk, and there are some things you need to consider while traveling. 

Without any further adieu…

Here are the 10 things you should consider when traveling.

1. Packing Too Much Could Trouble You

This is a common reason amongst travelers, but everyone should avoid it. Overpacking can put you into trouble. For a few days, the trip avoids overloading your bags. If required, you can purchase that, but you must avoid it.

Take it easy, pack light, and most importantly, pack smart.

2. Respect People’s Culture

Every country has its own culture and traditions. When in a new place, you must respect the people or culture. This is not argumentative because you are in someone’s home and play by their rules. So, please stop writing “Rahul loves Pooja” on monuments, and don’t make fun of people’s features and traditions. Respect the locals wherever you go.

3. Don’t Wear Costly or Flashy Jewellery

Wearing expensive, flashy jewellery is sure to make yourself an obvious target for robbery. But, right from your airport to the hotel, the local crowd understands that you’re a visitor from another country.

I am not saying every person is a thief, but out of a hundred people, one person might have the wrong intentions towards you.

It is recommended to leave the jewelry at home, friends, especially if you plan to travel to crowded areas!

4. Having the Emergency Phone Numbers 

Be sure to look up the emergency services number for your destination, even before getting there. It’s also good to look up the number for your country’s nearest embassy before leaving. Write them down or save them on your phone to have quick access to them in the event of an emergency.

5. Keep Digital Copies of Important Documents

Your passport and visa may be the most valuable thing you carry when traveling. In the event of a stolen passport, having a digital copy will help make the process of getting a replacement easier.

6. Consider Buying Insurance

Spending those extra few dollars will benefit you from feeling more secure in case something happens (lost baggage, trip delay or cancellation, medical emergency, etc.). Choose the best insurance policy that gives the most benefits.

7. Don’t be Overconfident That You Know Better Than Anyone Else

Sometimes some tourists want to act as they know better than anyone else, including the locals, just because they think they did extensive research on the internet before their trip.

8. Avoid Using Sign Languages That Might Be Considered Inappropriate In That Country

Whatever sign language you use in your own country might not be appropriate in another country you’re traveling. For example, the same sign might have a completely different meaning in other countries. So it is recommended not to use any sign language if you do not know the meaning of the sign language in the country you’re traveling.

9. Beware of the Tourist Traps

I can’t stress this enough. Every new place you go to comes with its own share of scamsters and frauds that lure you into paying more or doing stuff you wouldn’t want to spend your money on. Do you want to buy an “authentic’ Turkish carpet when the tag on the back says “Made In China”?

10. Don’t Steal Anything

We really shouldn’t be saying this because stealing is never okay. And we are speaking in all kinds of situations. However, in light of the viral video where a family pretty much stole everything from a hotel room, we don’t want to be associated with that, do we? So do yourself a favor and be a decent human being; leave the hairdryer and towels right where they are.


Traveling means feeling and getting connected with new people and different cultures. If you read the above information, I am sure you will have an incredible journey, and you could bring back a few great memories.

If you ignore a few things (mentioned above), you could be in trouble. Therefore if you want to fly like a free bird, consider these things and enjoy your hassle-free trip while traveling.
