Travelling is one of the greatest things you could ever do but to ensure it goes as smoothly as possible it’s really important to do your research and make some basic preparations before hitting the road.
This section is full of articles which advise on various travel essentials, such as how to raise money to fund your travels, what kit to pack and how to pack it, which jabs to have before you go and how to stay healthy on the road, visas and how to stay in touch with friends and family back home.
Try not to be too daunted: there might be a lot to take in, but all the articles in the world are no substitute for just getting out there and doing it. And it’s much easier to learn from your own mistakes than other peoples: that’s just the way of the world! Also, rely heavily on your own common sense; instinct is a great gift and thankfully we were all born with it, so follow it always, it’ll usually get you home.
