“Travel Fail # 1”, the title might look different or even confusing. One question that may arise in your mind which will be like…BOTCHED?! WHAT DID GO WRONG? Well of course, it’s was trip which was in fact my first foreign trip as well as my first ever trip which I failed to plan well. In fact, my overcautious behavior led to thoughts like “What if this happened?” “What if that got wrong?” As a result everything got wrong resulting a messed up trip and still I feel the guilt of not planning it well. I won’t explain long but in fact a few things that you SHOULD NOT do while going on such a trip especially when travelling as a couple or else, you will end in disaster. Before I get into the tips, this was the trip that I transformed into my first blog post. Besides sightseeing in the trip, the thing which got messed up were the expenses. Until and unless you are going alone or travelling with the group each handling their own expenses, please DON’T FOLLOW THE EXPENSE PLAN mentioned in the link. While planning such trip, just keep one thing in mind. You are going there to enjoy and you are NOT alone. So before going to the trip, do discuss the trip plan with your respective partner as your financial values may be different from your partner. Remember! It’s your trip. YOU are going there to enjoy. People will say whatever they want to say and trust me, IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! So let them say and enjoy your trip. The last thing what I want to say is no matter how hard you plan, things may go out of plan like delayed flights, issue in hotel booking even if you had made prior bookings, baggage issues etc. These issues will certainly make you anxious and frustrated at times so you must learn to face them together and try comforting the other that things will be OK in the end.
Well this is all what I wanted to say in this blog of mine. I am not an expert traveler but I must share and warn others if I fell in to a pit while walking on the road. Life is a roller coaster ride. It’s out choice whether to scream or enjoy the ride.
