Traveling is a wonderful experience, especially when everything during the journey goes right. However, it is not just about luck: the traveler planning a trip abroad, maybe in a distant and exotic country, must do his part so that the journey becomes truly unforgettable, understood in the positive sense of the term.
So do not be caught off guard and listen to the advice of the most experienced travelers: some will seem trivial, but if you find yourself faced with an unexpected event, they can make your life easier and in some cases even save it.
Here We Choose 10 tips and tricks for traveling that everyone should know
1 – Always change money at the destination airport
If you have currency in euros or dollars, change it immediately to the destination airport, where commissions are generally lower than in the rest of the territory.
Prices in currencies are usually higher than those charged in the local currency, being calibrated on the purchasing power of tourists, richer than the local population. Alternatively, as soon as you arrive at the airport, withdraw local money from an ATM: commissions are cheaper than the exchange rate in Italy
2 – Do not miss a good toilet
If you see a good toilet, take advantage of it. It is not said that the next one is as clean or close at hand
3 – Always
bring medicines for bowel disorders While antibiotics are generally at hand in most of the world, those that treat inflammation of the intestine are not as universal and effective as those we can get in Italy. Having them with you is important to avoid even serious complications, such as dehydration, which can completely ruin your holiday if you do not put your life at risk.
4 – Always take pain medication with you
Best to always have your painkillers with you: it is not said that they are marketed or easily available in other countries
5 – Always learn three sentences of the local language: thanks, yes and no
Often it will be useful to know a basic vocabulary in the local language, also because in some countries almost no one speaks English, except for the new generations

6 – Document yourself on local customs and taboos
Knowing how to greet and the good education and kindness of the local population will make life easier and avoid unpleasant misunderstandings. It will also be useful to know any taboos and food prohibitions, so avoid consuming street alcohol in many states of the USA, not ask for pork in a Muslim or veal country in India, and even garlic and onion to a Buddhist monk, if you never had lunch with one of them
7 – Always inform yourself about the situation of the country in which you are traveling.
Better not to be caught off guard by political unrest, hurricanes, and emergency states. Keep up to date on the Farnesina Viaggiaresicuri.it website and register at Dovesiamonelmondo .it: you will receive an alert in case of emergency
8 – Always drink water when available
Drink as much water as possible when you have it available, especially if you are in a hot country: dehydration is in wait
9 – Learn emergency sentences in English, German, Mandarin, and Russian
In case of an emergency, you will surely be useful and could even save your life
10 – Do not assume that the mobile phone is always charged, but use it.
Print your travel documents and hotel reservations: the cell phone when you need it could be unloaded. In any case, it will be useful to get a sim card and data to surf the Internet at a low price and to use the GPS
