Important Lessons Learnt While Travelling

The little annoying things you learn

  • Exercise every day (even when you don’t want to)
  • Keep your fibre up in your diet (even when you don’t want to)
  • Drink just as much water as alcohol (even when you don’t want to)
  • Try strange foods, and be adventurous.┬áStreet food will be the best food you have.
  • Sales people, are sales people, are sales people everywhere in the world.
  • Those who come from the coldest climates, complain the most about cold weather (or the window being down on a 35C day on an overland truck)
  • People that can not speak English (on an English tour) are the most un-intentionally funny people.
  • The nickname you don’t like will be the only one that people remember.
  • You can never have enough memory cards.
  • Charge your stuff at every opportunity as you never know when the next time you can will be.
  • When getting out of the tent and shining your torch at 5am, don’t trip over the warthog!
  • When getting out of the tent in the Serengeti don’t freeze up like an idiot when there is two hyenas charging at you.
  • Scammers are everywhere, always be aware and keep up with the current trends.
