My Top 10 Travel Tips!

Image
I recently just returned from travelling around South East Asia. This was my first backpacking adventure and before I left I would have loved for someone to share these tips with me. I have picked up a few of these tips from mistakes I made myself over there and things that I have learnt from people I met when I was on this crazy adventure.
Don't take yourself too serious/don't stress the small stuff.  Don't sweat about the stuff that you can't control! Just try and enjoy the moment. Missed your boat to the next island? Yes we could get really angry and start stressing out, but life is too short! Spend longer on the island your on, catch the later boat! At the end of the day this will all add to your adventure. 2. Live in the moment. Live in the moment! Learn to laugh at yourself! I can guarantee on your travels there is going to be a few times you make a fool of yourself. Instead of getting embarrassed, learn to laugh at yourself. Don't take life too serious.
There…
