Traveling is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. Meeting new people and cultures gives you a broad perspective. Thinking about traveling alone might be a bit scary, especially for our moms, who think of all the negative things that could happen, but as long as we let them know that we are doing fine, they can stop worrying about us.

Jonathan surely knows how to have fun; he went to the Tomorrowland music festival held in Belgium. Here’s tip number one: Before you go on a trip it is very important for you to scan passport pages, credit cards, your driver’s license and personal ID in case your bags are lost or stolen.
Before packing for your new destination, you should check the weather forecast in order to know what sort of clothes you need. You should also think about all the activities you want to do during your trip, just like skydiving in Playa del Carmen, Mexico!
In this picture, Jonathan went to explore the breathtaking Peruvian countryside. If you are traveling abroad for a long period of time, this tip is extremely important! You should visit your doctor and ask him if you need any travel vaccines. You should also have a medical check-up to make sure you are healthy.
Think about all the things you’d like to do in your trip and organize your itinerary to take advantage of the time you’ve got, considering your budget and the places you want to visit. In Jonathan’s case, he chose Latin American countries, which are great budget travel destinations.
When you are traveling, you need to take all your belongings and the important things you need, so you should know the baggage restrictions required by the airline. There are some items that are prohibited on airplanes so you should also take that into consideration. Visiting Machu Picchu, the historic Inca city is a must for those who love traveling to historic places!
