If it is your first trip outside your country, you might feel a little too nervous and excited at the same time. It is completely normal to have no clue about how your journey is going to unfold during your stay at an unknown place, but that should not stop you from exploring the streets. There are a lot of fun things you can do during your trip, considering you have your phone and you know how to find your place using the GPS. Here are some of the fun things you can do during your trip.
Talk to the locals
This might be the toughest part of your trip as talking to strangers in a completely new place can become awkward really quick. You may not know the language or have no reason at all to start a conversation, but interacting with the locals can give you a better idea about the place and can also unlock some bonus suggestions. You will also become more comfortable in the new environment while learning new things about the culture and traditions of the place.
Post on Social Media
You can share your experiences with your friends every day by sharing stories on Instagram or putting up a vlog. It will let your friends know that you are having fun and also assure them that you are safe. Especially is you are travelling solo you must update your family about your locations. But you can do it is a creative way by clicking pictures and making videos that you can even cherish after your trip.
Check out the newspapers
When you are in a new place, you can check out their local newspapers to know what is happening in the city you are living in. It is not necessary to read the newspapers, but you can also check the websites which bring out local news and events. You can find out some interesting evening happening around you that you can visit instead of sleeping in your hotel room.
Sleep while travelling
If you are on a road trip, pick a bus or train which offers sleeping cabins. You can choose these sleeper buses to save your time and money that you will spend in a hotel room after reaching your destination. You can sleep during the travel so that upon reaching you can start visiting the places, saving yourself a days stay.
Try our street food
You will miss one of the best parts about a place if you come back without eating the local delicacies. Street food is the heart of any place and also comes in cheap. Instead of eating a little and spending a lot at a restaurant, you can eat a lot and spend very little while enjoying the food in the streets.
