“The gladdest moment in human life, me thinks, is a departure into unknown lands.” – Sir Richard Burton
Our best piece of travel advice is to just do it. Of course you want to save enough money and bring the right gear but everything else will work itself out. Taking the leap by buying the ticket or hopping in the car is the hardest, and most essential step. After that the wonders of maneuvering yourself through foreign bus stations and dinner menus becomes real and exciting. Learning about new cultures and meeting people around the world will hook you, and make you never regret taking that first step.
Good luck and safe travels!
