Whether your vacation destination is international or local, you might want to keep in mind some of these tips during your trip. If you have done good trip research/planning and worked on your “Before trip to do list”, you are half way through. Next, by following these “During trip” tips you are all set to have a super fun and exciting vacation!
If you have an international connection, you may not be able to check-in your flight online.
So go early! 3 hours before international flights and 2 hours before domestic is recommended.
In places like New York City, the street food is pretty good and not expensive. I’d pick that over expensive restaurants.
In places like the Orcas Island and Vancouver, I booked a suite i.e. a place with a kitchen/kitchenette. It helped me save money on restaurant food and also I did not fall sick from eating out.
Buying fruits works out really well for me. Especially, in international locations, I get to enjoy a variety of native fruits!
Every place is different, so do the math.
You already know this by now but seriously rethink buying junk as souvenirs. If it’s not going to be useful to anyone, don’t buy it!
You still have pictures and memories. I upload all pictures I take on my Google drive as I go.
In case, I loose my phone, I’ll still have most of my pictures. It actually happened to me in Brazil!
