How To Make Plane Flight Travel Be Less Stressful

Many people say that when travelling abroad you are an easy target for crime, but that is really only true if you don't know how to blend in. Like all countries, there is crime, however, you really need to be educated on the culture and understand how not to like a tourist. This article contains a number of helpful tips on blending into the native culture and not looking like a tourist.

If you are going to a major city, look for blogs updated by people who actually live in this city and want to write about what is new in their cities. This should give you a general idea of what to expect and perhaps help you find out where the best restaurants are.

One of the easiest, most effective and affordable ways to offset the unflattering aftermath of jet lag, is to drink plenty of water. Being dehydrated can cause you to feel light-headed, dizzy and fatigued, upon landing. Seasoned travelers report that drinking at least four eight-ounce glasses of water over a five-hour trip, can make a noticeable difference.

To keep yourself from getting stiff during a long drive, try jogging. Every time you visit a rest stop, jog around it a few times, and encourage the people traveling with you to do the same. This will get your blood circulating, relieving stiffness, and keeping you awake and alert.

If you are going on a car trip, be sure your cell phone is charged up and keep it in the car with you. Don't make the mistake of packing it and putting it in the trunk! If you have an emergency on the road, you will want to be able to get to your cell phone without a moment's hesitation.

Brush your teeth with bottled water when traveling in areas with questionable water. Drinking the water is not the only risk when traveling in certain developing nations. Many people assume that as long as they do not swallow the water, they are safe. In reality bacteria in water can enter your body even if you only use it to rinse your mouth when brushing.

As was stated in the beginning of the article, knowing how to blend in with the local culture is crucial to not being a victim of crime. Criminals prey on tourists, but if you apply the advice from this article the chances of you becoming a victim of crime are much less.
