Take it slow
With limited free time and even more limited vacation time; it can be tempting to try to squeeze everything into one single trip a year. Know anyone who tried to rush through 20 cities in 20 days? Or maybe 10 countries in one 30 day trip? In the end, all you will end up with is photos or places you barely remember, stress, and a list of experiences but no real knowledge of the places you visited.
Rome wasn’t built in one day, don’t expect to be able to see everything in one day either!
My suggestion, pick a few “must see” places or experiences and spend the rest of your days of your trip learning about the culture and the people. It will make the places you visited much more memorable.
Don’t plan every detail
Some people need practice on being spontaneous! A little planning is okay, but I truly believe if you plan every detail, you will get burnt out from stress when things don’t go as planned. If you fall behind schedule, you will be rushed and miss a lot of the important and breathtaking details. Sometimes you just have to let life unfold. Plan one or two activities in one day, not necessarily in any order, and then take the rest of the day to watch and see how it unfolds.
Challenge yourself, try new things. You may hate some, you may love some, but you won’t regret any of it. It’s all about the experience. Remember, it’s better to try and fail then to never try at all.
You might be nervous about traveling into the unknown, and that’s okay. This is your trip, this is your world! Just take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy yourself!
