New travellers don’t know what tips to take along with them but even the expert travellers tend to forget the most important travel tips.
Here are a few travel tips just in case you forgot to give you direction in Hobart:
Expect problems to occur
You can plan for so long and be so well organised and problems will still occur. Things can happen that are unpredictable but don’t let that ruin your trip. The best way to deal with problems is to expect them in the first place. Prevention is better than cure. Precisely why you should let go of them quickly instead of dwelling or sulking over them. Picture them as more like an adventure set out to test you.
Paying for items
Using a credit card is one of the best ways to purchase items when travelling. If something goes wrong, most cards offer some sort of protection and you can earn points that you can use on your next travel. Bring two credit cards with you just in case one is lost and needs to be cancelled. Ensure you keep a small pouch of local AUD currency on you and don’t use the airport currency conversion system as they have high fees. Additional guidance and assistance will be provided to you by the finest and best accommodation you’d come across in the Hobart city.
Don’t overwhelm yourself with stuff to do every minute of the trip. Take some time to just wander and take views in. Hobart is a beautiful place with a plethora of sight-seeing options that are available for you. A pre-planned trip might just take the fun out of things. The place has so many unexpected sights which requires an ‘in the moment’ perspective. Take time to enjoy watching how locals live their life. Don’t sit on Facebook all day. Enjoy being present to capture the moment. Don’t book ahead too far or you will see yourself needing to cancel plans. You don’t know if you will want a tour three weeks from now. Try and book a few days in advance instead.
Get yourself lost
It is time to enjoy the journey the spontaneousness of just going with the flow. Yes, you heard right. Get out there and get lost on purpose and explore a whole new side to your journey. When you get lost you will find all the unexpected discoveries. Pay a visit to the closest carnival, an adventure theme park, a trek on the beautiful mountains or wineries near Hobart. The city is just filled with adventures and treats waiting to unravel.
Keep someone up to date
Accidents can happen and if you fall hiking or get hurt during any other activity, it’s always better to have that one person who’s got the complete whereabouts on you. Ensure you keep someone in the loop as to where you are going and what activities are set for the day. That way if something happens, people have an idea about your whereabouts and your itinerary.
Step outside the comfort zone
If you love to stay in your comfort zone, then it can be a good time to break that cycle and explore an entire new side of yours. You never know, there might just be an inquisitive free- bird traveller in you, waiting to break loose. Unfamiliar yet exhilarating zones can be a good experience and a much-needed change to your lifestyle.
Take these tips with you on your next trip to Hobart and see where you end up.
