Traveling Smart


You learn and pick up a lot of things when you are traveling. And even the most savvy-travelers are once newbies who have mastered quite a few travel hacks along the way. Whether it is your first time to travel to foreign destinations or not, here are some tips and tricks that could prove handy during your trip.

Plan it and wing it.
Find that balance between planning the important details and being flexible enough to make room for the unexpected. If you are the planner type, you do not have to sweat out the details. Just make sure that you have your travel essentials covered including a travel insurance that should provide ample coverage for different emergency situations. It is also good to know a little bit about the place you are going and what to expect such as the weather forecast throughout the duration of your stay, safety and security information, and more. Doing a bit of travel planning never hurts. And you might be surprised just how helpful it can be if you arrive well-prepared to an unfamiliar place.

Protect yourself from theft and scam.
Pickpockets, scams, and thefts in hotel rooms are just some of the crimes that occur in many touristy destinations. No matter how safe the place you are going, it does not hurt to plan ahead on how to protect yourself from scammers and thieves. If possible, avoid traveling with valuables. And make sure to keep whatever hard-to-replace or expensive item with you at all times or at the hotel safe. Use a backpack with secret compartment where you can put important items like your passport, wallet, or anything you would not want to fall into the hands of a skillful pickpocketer.

Healthy Eating Tips for Road Trippers

On the road

On the road

It is said that the best part about traveling is the journey itself. This rings true for road trips. It can be a quite memorable experience regardless of your destination and if you are traveling alone or with family or friends. The scenic routes, the stops, and just being out there in open roads provide plenty of fodder for unforgettable memories and stories. But life on the road can also be a challenge when it comes to sticking to a healthy diet. Thankfully, there are fairly simple ways to eat right while spending days or weeks on the road.

Include food in your plans

Plan your road trips down to the last detail, which means anticipating your food needs. Pack whatever you can bring with you like healthy snacks such as crackers, fruits, nuts, or some trail mixes. These should prevent you from making unnecessary stops and purchases if you want some snacks in between meals.

Stick to scheduled stops

Schedule food or meal stops and stick to it. This can help in preventing impulse eating at any random restaurant or café that catches your eyes while on the road. You can plan food stops ahead by doing some online search on restaurants you will like find on the route. Or you can download a mobile app that will help you look for restaurants near your location.

Choose healthy foods

Some of the restaurants you find during road stops may not specialize in healthy foods. But this does not mean you cannot find anything nutritious to eat on the menu. You just have to take the time to read the food descriptions carefully. Make special requests if you have to like substituting certain ingredients for healthier options.

Be wary of portion sizes

Portion sizes often vary in restaurants. Some may have bigger serving sizes than others. You do not have to finish off a meal on your own to avoid wasting food. You can just have the leftovers packed if you do not have anyone to share it with. You can always eat what is left as you continue on your journey. If you are traveling with family or friends, you can share with everyone which is may actually be a cheaper way to enjoy food while on road trips.

Healthy eating on road trips is possible with advance planning and self-discipline. Make the most of your time on the road without feeling guilty about stuffing yourself with unhealthy foods. Eat healthy, have fun, and experience the joys of road trips give.
