5 Secrets to Make Travel More Enjoyable

Travelling might be one of the most eye-opening and exciting things to do in life, but it can also be one of the most frustrating and problematic depending on what happens. For most people, the flight can be boring and tiring, and for others, the idea of being unable to communicate with locals is frustrating. In this post, we’re going to list five simple but effective secrets that will help make travel more enjoyable.

1. Learn some phrases 
You don’t need to learn an entire language just to visit a country, just a few phrases will help you out in the long run. It will also show the locals that you’ve taken the time to learn their language, and that will garner you some respect!

2. Two wallets 
Juggling two currencies can be a pain sometimes, so get yourself a second wallet that contains all of the travel cards and currencies you need so you can leave your regular wallet in your luggage for emergencies.

3. Be open
 The worst thing you can do when travelling is to become close-minded. Be adventurous and open instead by trying out different types of foods, speaking to more people and embracing new cultures.

4. Slow down
Don’t rush around trying to fit a hundred things into a single day. Instead, slow it down and limit the number of things you’ve planned so you can slow down and enjoy them instead.

5. Deal with jet lag
