Dont be caught lacking: Travelling code

1. Make contacts at least 3

2. Unlock your phone

3. Bring backup

4. Reserve before you go

5. Make extra copies of your passport and important documents.

6. Always get behind business travelers when in security lines.

7. They move fast since they are usually in a rush and travel light. They know the drill. Line up behind them as much as possible. You’ll speed through the line!

8. Never get behind families

9. If you are bored and lonely. Stay in hostels

They are cheap, organize events, you’ll meet a lot of people, and they are just tons of fun! Plus, hostel bars sell cheap beer. Here are some posts on how to pick a hostel (and some of my favorite ones):

Never, ever take a taxi unless you absolutely have too!

10. Take an empty metal water bottle through airport security and fill it up at your gate.

Drink from the tap when you can — you’ll save money and help the environment. If you’re going somewhere where you can’t drink the water, be sure to get a water bottle with a filter. I love LifeStrawand Grayl as my two preferred ones.

11. Take free walking tours.

12. Take pictures of your luggage and clothes.

If your bag gets lost, this will help identify it more easily and speed up the process of having your travel insurance reimburse you.

13. Carry emergency cash.

Because emergencies happen. Like that time in Romania when I couldn’t find an ATM and needed money for the bus to the hostel! I usually try to keep around a $200 USD in emergency cash in case something happens!

14. Get vaccinated.

Because falling prey to an illness in a foreign country is not fun — and many countries require you to get vaccinated in order to visit them so, regardless of your opinion on the subject, you just might have to.

15. Learn to haggle.

Haggling is a fun, playful way of not getting charged the foreigner price. It’s the art of negotiating and one that will help you throughout all of life, not just at the market.

16. Get travel insurance

17. Always have an extra USB charger.

Batteries die. Your good mood shouldn’t.

18. Take photos of and with people.

Lots of photos. Years from now, you’ll want to look back on those nights you can’t remember and the people who made them memorable.

19. Book your tickets online

If you’re planning to do any activities or excursions on your trip, book them online. Companies usually offer a discounted price when compared to buying in person. Not only that but you’ll be able to pay with a credit card, giving you some extra protection as well as more travel points!

20. Sign up for flight deals

When it comes to travel, your flight(s) will likely be your biggest expense. Save money by signing up for flight deal websites like Scott’s Cheap FlightsThe Flight Deal, and Secret Flying. You’ll get epic flight deals straight to your inbox, saving you time and money. Also be sure to sign up for airline newsletters, since that is where they will announce their sales first!

In Somaliland you will not find pirates or terrorists. Instead you will find peace and you can even walk around in the middle of the night. For traveling outside the major cities you will however need a Special Police Unit (SPU) member. The Somaliland government has put the safety of foreigners as their priority while seeking for recognition. The bottom line is that Somaliland has proved to be a safe haven and a beacon of stability in a volatile region.
