Mistake #8: Comfort Zone
If you’re the type of person who likes to stick to
a schedule as well as stay within a set region or area during your travels,
you’ll miss out on some great opportunities to learn about culture and how the
locals really live.
Most travel experts will tell you to “get lost on purpose”. They explain that if you want to learn about how real people live and work, you need to venture outside of your comfort zones (and the busier tourist areas/traps).
Not only will you broaden your horizons, but you’ll save money as most venues and restaurants outside of the bustling tourist areas will offer better pricing.
So, try to set aside a day where all you do is explore! Keep an open mind and let yourself get lost in the culture and customs of the places you’re visiting!
