Even though it might seem like globetrotters are just having fun everyday, while visiting the most exotic and stunning places on earth, that does not quite reflect reality. Besides a lot of not so glorious routine work you will also face other inconveniences like pushy salesmen and scams. There is no 100% safe way to avoid that, but if you are prepared you can safe yourself some of the trouble. I try to give you an idea of what to expect and how to avoid the most common scams and mistakes.
In my opinion way too less travellers talk about that topic. I experienced how the right mindest and attitude towards and during your trip will make the difference between an nice and an amazing trip. I’m not able to tell you how to think and I also don’t want to, but I can give a few suggestions and ideas to make the rather unpleasant things less unpleasant.
