Jake and Marie’s top travel tips
Just do it – Its one thing to think it, and another to do it. Its so easy to over complicate things and worry so much about the finer details that you lose the emotion you had when you first thought of travelling. The fear or the hesitation we all have is a natural response to exposing ourselves to something uncomfortable. It would be easier to stay home, but it wouldn’t be as fulfilling and you wouldn’t experience so much personal growth. So when you feel that hesitation, realise it’s a good thing, and then make your move.
Travel Lite – No matter how hard we try to remember to look after our gear, on every trip we lose or break something of value. When you are constantly on the move its so easy to forget things. We have realised that having less is so much better. We don’t stress as much and our minds are more at ease.
Plan ahead but don’t expect everything to work out – Travel is a beautiful thing, but not the most reliable in terms of expectations. Wherever you go, travel with an open mind and be ready to jump at opportunities.
