The Ultimate Travel Checklist
7. Research the culture
Please, don’t offend the locals by being ignorant. Should you wear a headscarf? Should you take your shoes off before entering a house? Can you eat with your left hand? These are many of the questions that you should find out before you hop on the plane.
8. Is it safe?
The last thing you want is to get yourself thrown in the deep end! Is the country at war? Was there a recent terrorist attack or riot? Check before boarding.
9. Have valid passport and bank cards
Imagine not being able to board your plane because your passport is expired. Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months (standard) and your bank cards haven’t expired to avoid disappointment and hassle!
