|World Travel - Hints on how to do It
If you have set your mind on traveling around the world, you
might run into the difficult task of having to make a hard
choice: where do you want to go? The multitude of destinations
and travel options is great, but it is also something that you
might deal with for days or even weeks before you make a
The best thing to do is to create a top ten list of the places
that you always wanted to visit. The list may include different
countries or even cities in the same country. No matter what you
will place as number one in your list you shouldn't worry about
getting there, as the travel industry is huge today and able to
send you to your destination. Try to find out as much as
possible about the most attractive destinations. Travel
literature offers a wide variety of sources for good
information. You can either go at a local bookstore or search
online for facts about your destination(s).
Try to have a good idea about what you want to do there. Are you
going to go white water rafting, hiking, biking, roller skating,
scuba diving? Make sure you have the adequate equipment and
physical condition to embark on an adventure. Remind yourself
that you will, most likely, find yourself on the tourist trail.
This may be enough for some, but if you wish to capture hidden
aspects of the place you will be visiting you might want to get
off the beaten trail. There are good reasons why some places
become tourist attractions: there are convenient ways of getting
there and interesting things to see. For aspects of your trip
that are less touristy you might want to try asking some locals
about places known mostly by them and ignored by the visitors.
Going around the travel industry offers might get you greater
satisfactions than if you had just followed the standards.
Big cities might sound like a good place to visit, but the truth
is that most of them are very much alike. Of course, there are
exceptions, and you will find cities with a very distinct
personality, like Paris, Prague or Istanbul. You might also want
to travel without using cabs and go for the means of
transportation the locals use: buses, trams and bikes. Walking
around, stopping at small, hidden shops or wandering on small,
neglected streets should prove a unique experience as well, very
different from the loud and flashy city tours.
