Preparing For Long Term Travel

Preparing For Long Term Travel
Not everyday does someone say they’re leaving the country and not coming back for some months and even years. Most of the average population would call you crazy. Everyone wants to travel but who actually does? You! Yes, You!

What I really want to focus on talking about today is the mental aspect of this. It can be one of the most important factors. When you tell your family and friends you’re planning this trip you expect the best response. However, sometimes that is not always the case. You must prepare for the best and worst outcome.

Many traveler’s may experience disapproval from their family or friends. This can be hard to swallow. What you should not do is take it to heart. If this is something you want to do go ahead and do it! If you let others opinion’s effect your decisions you will never be happy in life. It’s a shame some people feel so opinionated on what you do. Always follow your heart and dreams! No matter what!

Now, since I got that out there you’re probably thinking okay where are the other tips? All I can say is plan but in moderation. What works best for me is planning the first few destinations then just going with the flow. Why do I do this? If you’re backpacking you might be somewhere and totally change your itinerary so sometimes it is best to have leeway. Last tip: the money. Save money like your grandmother told you and save, save, save. Cut expenses like eating out and unnecessary buying.

I hope you enjoyed this little bit! Remember, travel smart, and live easy! Please comment and let me know your experience’s or tips! I would love to hear them!

I love exploring and finding new things. Yesterday, I went downtown and went to barrio chino. This is pretty much Mexico City’s China town. It was pretty cool. Then in Zócalo the military was folding the giant flag and it was so windy some of the men fell over. Poor guys lol. A part I love about it here is that it looks like Europe in some places. The architecture is amazing. 

I also met another one of my aunts on Monday she is hilarious. I’m gonna be honest I have so much family I don’t even know their names. Yikes. I meet a new aunt,uncle, or cousin all the time. Sometimes my aunts or uncles are near the same age as me awkward. Also, I tried some Mexican tequila and dang it was strong. 

Tomorrow, we are heading to Huatulco. This trip is the last big trip as I am leaving next weekend. Which is sad I don’t wanna go. We will be at the beach for three days. And it will also be my primas birthday tomorrow. I am starting to get a grasp on Spanish but it’s still difficult. Today I tried learning the Mexican tradition song of happy birthday. It’s very different than the American traditional song.
