Travel can be your perfect escape to release your stress or just simply enjoy your free time. However, it is often that people get too absorbed into the buzz of their travel plan and end up with complicating the process itself. There is always a saying that the simple the better. It is not wrong though because when you keep everything simple, the less hassle you experience. It is also applied to travel. More often than not, travelers are so into preparation which make them pack everything in their bag including unnecessary items. However, travel simple is better in many ways.
Simplifying your travel
Carrying heavy luggage will only bring you pain during and after travel. It also makes you restricted to move. Planning tight schedule to your travel plan is also not a good idea because you will have to rush from place to place. If those thing you usually do when travelling, you need it changed. The best thing to do is to simplify your travel. It will lesson your burden and lift up your mood. Here are tips to do it:
Always stick to the most useful items when packing your luggage. It is true that every traveler may have their own essential items. However, make sure to not pack anything that is still in grey whether you are going to need it or not. Pack things you surely will need. In your luggage, make sure to pack important items for travelling including travel documents (passport, visa, ID, credit card). If it is for short travel in only a few days, pack only two to three pairs of clothes. Pack your toiletries but leave things that you will get in your hotel such as soap, shampoo, or toothpaste. Don’t forget to pack your charger and camera if you want to document your moments during travel.
As for the preparation involves planning, make sure to not over plan your trip. The important point of travelling is the experience itself, not necessarily the spot. Thus, there is no use to arrange a very tight schedule for your trip. It will only make you move in a rush without truly enjoying the beauty. Choose what you really want to do first or place you really want to visit first. Make sure you set the time well so you get the chance to truly enjoy every single detail of the place you visit.
Do not make your mind think of complicated things or the complexity of the journey. You need to be prepared yes but it doesn’t mean you have to stress yourself over the unknown. No matter meticulous you prepare your trip is, there is always chance for the unexpected. Thus, just enjoy the ride. Keep smile and let negativity flow out of your body throughout the journey. If you want to be stuck in extreme crowd, choose less touristy spots. Furthermore, you will be able to fully enjoy your trip without being squished or crushed in the ocean of people.
