I am a traveler and I have been lucky enough to travel fox the world for over 15 years. I have traveled a lot in Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. This list of the 12 worst mistakes that travelers make is my attempt to help you avoid the same mistakes in your travels.
Travel is a wonderful experience –
we all get to go to new places and learn a lot about new cultures. But traveling can also be a very dangerous endeavor. The very nature of the travel industry makes it incredibly easy to get yourself into trouble. In fact, I feel that as a general rule, travelers should always be aware of the potential pitfalls around them. We all have the potential to trip or get lost and fall into a situation that could have dire consequences.
This is especially true when traveling to new places. While it’s great to live in a new city and know some of its histories, a lot of times there isn’t much to go on. Instead of asking a bunch of random people what they know about the area and then letting them tell you what they think, you should make a list of things you need to know in order to travel safely.
We’ve gathered this list of things travelers should know before they travel. While the list is long, it’s not hard to follow. Here are the top 12 things travelers should avoid when they travel.
- Always check your blind spots. This is something that really needs to be ingrained in travelers. It may seem obvious to you, but it really does save lives. While the risk of getting lost is minimal when you are traveling by car, it is a huge risk when you are in a crowd. It is much easier to get lost when you are in a crowd with people around you, people who may not even look in your direction.
What do you think about travel fox?
The travel industry is rife with incidents that many travelers never even think about. It has happened to me on multiple occasions, and I am always very careful about my blind spots. The ones that really get me are when I am walking through a crowd, and my blind spots are suddenly obvious. But the really bad ones happen to me while driving, and sometimes I get pulled over for a traffic violation.
Of course, I can’t speak for travelers in general. But I have had a few occasions where I have been pulled over by police. I find that I am still not 100% clear about what was happening. To make matters worse, I notice that these officers are wearing body cameras. But they seem to have no idea what they are looking at. They are not doing their jobs as best they can. And they are putting their own safety and that of everyone around them at risk.
