It is in the nature of human beings that they love to travel. We all like to visit different places, experience new scenic beauty, meet people of all kinds, flavour new type of food and satisfy our yearning for a change. I have travelled all most all parts of India and gained a lot of knowledge of various places. I have travelled by road, by train and by air. The beauty of some places, the architecture of some other places and the scenic beauty of some selected places is etched in my mind. Since the last two years I have developed a sort of emotion to confine myself within the four walls of home. I get goosebumps on the very prospect of going out of the house.
On the basis of my experience of travelling far and wide I am jotting down some dos and don'ts when you leave your house.
1.Plan your journey ahead.The itenary must be clear in your mind.
2. If you are travelling by train or by air, book your tickets in advance for onward and also return journey..
3.If small children are travelling with you, keep pure water, milk, biscuits,and chocolates handy.
4. Keep some essential medicines eg. for headache, stomach ache, cold, pain, and fever.
5.Don't keep too many clothes, if you are going for holidaying. If you are going for some function you must carry clothes judiously.
6. Don't carry gold ornaments with you.
7. Don't keep too much cash. You can use credit card or get cheques encashed wherever you go.
8.If you are going to stay with friends or relatives, carry your towel, tooth paste, soap etc. In case you are staying in a hotel, these necessities are provided.
9.When going out for sight seeing, it is better if someone familiar accompanies you.
10.If you are staying with a friend or a family, carry some token gift. It will be appreciated
11.Don't be a burden on your host by dictating your requirements. Adjust with their life style.
12.Keep your room tidy,arrange the bed, fold your clothes, and hang the towels properly.
13.If your host has planned to take you around, do not insist on going to places of your choice.
14.If there are servants in your host's house, don't forget to give them some tip when you are leaving.
15. After returning send a thank you note or a call the host to thank them.
16.Invite them to your house.
