For the past previous years, I was fascinated and addicted to travelling. Either it is domestic, international or just hanging around. Sometimes, I did it myself if I have no one who wants to go with me. Oftentimes, I did it with travel buddies and my frequent travel buddy is my loving daughter.

I jot down all the expenses I need to allocate for my budget. Examples are the meal expenses, transport cost, entrance fees for the scenic spots, souvenir cost, tips, etc. After knowing the expenses, I will eliminated those spots which can be skipped and just maintain those that is a “must see”. This way you can just work on the budget you’ve allocated for the trip. If it’s possible, I will bring some of the meals like canned goods and crackers so that my meal expenses will be just minimal so I can have some spare money to use for extra activities or to just buy food, which is famous for that place.

Packing properly is important as it saves time and more importantly, it makes you relax and not in a hurry hence no stress to enjoy your travelling. One tip also is to look for
