Travel is much below where it was in 2019, and it will take a long time for it to return to pre-pandemic levels. As a result, writing a post about the advantages of traveling and why travel is essential feels a little strange.
Travel, on the other hand, will make a comeback. When it happens, the threats to one’s health and safety will persist. Many fair-weather travelers would be afraid to take to the planes, roads, railways, and seas again. Traveling is crucial, and the advantages greatly exceed the hazards.
In this article, we asked some travelers about some traveling tips and here are our results:
Best Traveling Tips In 2022
I think you’re probably now convinced that traveling is a crucial thing in your life. Are you afraid to start? It’s normal to get a bit nervous if it’s your first time. Don’t worry a lot because I got your back. We asked some traveler about their best traveling tips, apps and here are there responses:
1. Get A Traveling App
Traveling apps are important to get the most out of any trip. It helps you get the best hotels with the best prices, best flights and find good entertainment options. Here is a quote from our friend Val Sterif about Traveling apps and their main app “Get My Boat”:
One of the best traveling apps would definitely be the “GetMyBoat app” – it enables you to find and book boat rentals all over the world during your travels.
My name is Val Streif and I work for GetMyBoat, the world’s largest platform for boat rentals and water experiences. We have over 150,000 boats across 9,300 destinations.
We have a mobile app available for iOS and Android that enables you to seamlessly search and book boat rentals, charters, and other water experiences like kayaking, scuba diving, and more, right on your phone.
Most travel destinations are near a body of water – whether it’s a lake, river, or ocean. Some of the best activities you can book to enjoy your adventures are on the water. Whether it’s a dinner cruise on a scenic river, a day of cruising on a catamaran around the ocean, going snorkeling, or booking a pontoon on a lake, a boat day is guaranteed to make your travels more fun.
2. Get To Know Your Destination Language
Getting to know languages is an important skill. Some countries are really proud of their language like German people. They usually refuse to talk in any language except German. On the other side, an international language that you should keep in mind is English. A common source of miscommunication is getting the spelling wrong. We asked some writers about the most misspelled english words and here are the results:
Here is a quote provided by Annie Earnshaw from Clean Origin. :
1. What are the most misspelled words in English?
I think the most misspelled words are those with two vowels in a row, especially I and E. Some examples include:
2. Why do you think they are misspelled?
I think these words are misspelled because the order of their vowels doesn’t have an impact on their pronunciation. American students are taught to learn new words by sounding them out. The vowel order in these words doesn’t impact the way they sound, which makes it difficult to determine their spelling.
Here is a quote provided by Surabhi from Bake Honey. Bake Honey is a bakery aggregator platform.
Surabhi presented some reasons of the misspelling along with some example:
Reason 1: what comes first:
- Field vs feild
- friend vs freind.
Reason 2: what doubles:
- neccesity vs necessity
- occasion or ocassion.
Reason 3: US english vs UK english – “s” vs “z”
Examples: customize vs customise- in this case both are correct actually (As per google)
3. Always Take A Small Backpack
You’ll be forced to pack light and avoid carrying too much stuff if you get a small backpack (I prefer something around 35/40 liters). Because humans have a natural need to fill space, if you pack light but have a lot of excess room in your luggage, you’ll find yourself thinking, “Well, I guess I can take more,” and then regretting it.
4. Take Extra Credit Cards
Accidents happen. It’s usually a good idea to carry a back-up card in case you’re robbed or misplace one. You don’t want to be stranded in a new location without access to your money. I once had a card cloned and placed under lock and key. I was unable to utilize it for the rest of my journey. I was overjoyed that I had an extra, unlike my friend, who didn’t and was often borrowing money from me!
5. Visit Local Tourism Office
They’re up to date on everything that’s going on around town. They may direct you to free activities as well as unique events taking place during your stay. They even provide discounts on activities and travel. It is their responsibility to assist you in getting the most out of your visit to the place. It’s astonishing how many tourists overlook this while visiting a new place, but as a wise traveler, you need to take use of this resource! This is definitely one of the world’s most underappreciated travel recommendations. Make use of the tourist information center!
6. Don’t Take Too Much Money Out With You
Limit the amount of cash and credit cards you bring with you so that you can readily recover if something goes wrong. Never go out with more than one credit card or with a lot of money.
7. Pre-book Your Tickets
You can secure your spot and avoid the wait at several famous sites. Always check the internet to discover whether this is a possibility. You will save time by not having to wait in long queues and will be able to get directly in. I’ve seen people line up for hours to see the Catacombs of Paris, the Louvre, the Churchill War Rooms in London, cathedrals, temples, old fortifications, and more. Pre-book the day ahead to avoid lines and get most out of your day!
Tips For Pregnant Ladies
It can be difficult to travel while pregnant, but there are a few things that can help make it easier. Here are a few tips:
- Make sure you’re well-rested before you travel. Pregnancy can be exhausting, so get plenty of sleep before you leave.
- Pack light. You don’t want to be hauling a lot of heavy luggage around while you’re pregnant.
- Bring snacks and drinks with you, especially if you’re travelling by plane. You may not always have access to food that’s healthy for you or that meets your dietary restrictions.
- Wear comfy clothes and shoes.”

Here are some more tips provided by someone who tried traveling while pregnant:
Travelling anywhere when pregnant can be a bit of a gamble, even for relatively short distances – will there be somewhere to sit down regularly? Will the heat or smells of the location affect you? Are the toilets easily accessible? Will you be able to access food and drinks frequently?
Planning ahead is key, making sure you know what amenities are available, but there are a few things you can do to help ensure you are able to travel safely and comfortably…
- Use a 2 strap backpack rather than a one strap shoulder bag to distribute any weight you are carrying easily.
- Invest in a flexi shewee or similar if toilets are not available
- Carry a nice smelling essential oil or capo rub to add to your face mask to help with any smell induced nausea
- Keep an emergency cooling spray in your bag, along with snacks and drinks
- Small inflatable or memory foam neck pillows may be the difference between a good night sleep or no sleep at all, they can also be used between the knees if you’re struggling with sore hips
- Plan for growth! Pack underwear in the size up just in case you need more room
- Hats and suncream are a must, even in colder climates, pregnancy hormones can lead to easier sunburn and skin damage.
- Invest in flat, comfortable shoes and find some inserts for the soles to help support arches which may be affected by relaxing.
