Go for Airbnb over traditional hotels

Looking for a place to crash that's both cozy and kind to your wallet? Airbnb has revolutionized the way travelers lodge.

Plus, living in a local's home adds an authentic flavor to your travel experience that no hotel can match.

Be an extrovert

Traveling stretches you in more ways than one, and sometimes, it requires stepping out of your comfort zone.

If you're naturally on the introverted side, adopting an open stance towards people and experiences can be a game-changer.

Seasoned travelers vouch for the power of simple gestures like smiling or asking for directions. More often than not, people are eager to help, and such interactions can lead to unexpected adventures, new friendships, and memorable stories to bring back home.
