Presumably every single one of us enjoys the idea of traveling around the world, meeting different people, tapping into different cultures and seeing new spectacular sites around the world. Some even believe that traveling is necessary in order to live a fulfilled life. But we can all come to an agreement that due to innovation and globalization, traveling has changed in a more than a few ways for the better or worse. So we composed a list on some of the most obnoxious things we hate or tend to ignore whiles traveling.
Bringing our entire closet
Over packing is one of those rookie mistakes that we keep on repeating time and time again. We often pack clothes that we’ll never even get a chance to wear on our 7 day trip, chances are you’re not going to be needing that one shirt you bought 3 years ago and only worn it on one occasion. A good way around this problem is to pack ½ of the things you initially think you will need.
Spend more time on airports than on plane
If you’re traveling far abroad, chances are you’ll be catching more than one flight to your desired destination. And there is no greater ordeal than airport check-ins, luggage weighing and those long boarding lines, not to mention the overpriced foods and drinks at the airport.
This goes without saying airplane food is awful and it just keeps on getting worse. Even worse, we keep on complaining about the food, knowing about the quality of the meals prior. Chances are if you’re flying economy class, you’re onboard meal won’t be a 5 start meal and you might even pay extra if you even stick to peanuts and drinks.
One of the most common mistakes we make whiles traveling is waste our time doing nothing. We often get caught up in things such as: getting ready for the beach, choosing what outfit to wear, oversleeping or just plain spend our time sitting in our hotel room doing nothing.
Staying in our comfort zone
People like to stay in their comfort zone even when their traveling to new locations and that’s not really a bad thing if it provides more entertainment for your trip, but in most cases it’s frankly the opposite. We spent months of planning, preparing and saving in order to travel and do the same basic activities and eat the same food that we’re used to back at home. Next time you go on a trip, be sure to try something new and different, as it will bring a lot more excitement and joy into your trip.
